    Hi, I have HD in one room and sky + in another so if I changed the sky+ to HD would I have to pay a further HD sub (£9.75) ?

    Plus the second Sky HD box will set you back £199 from Sky not £49.

    And the second £9.75 charge soon adds up. :(

    This is Sky's dictionary definition of treating existing customers to the same deals as newcomers.

    As they plastered all over their full page newspaper ads when attempting to attract Virgin customers who had just lost the Sky channels.

    Evidently not the Oxford dictionary as their definition varies somewhat from Sky's version. :)

    As an example...we paid £300 for our first HD box in 2006. We have paid £10 pm subs for 32 months.

    We wanted a multiroom box to replace our failing Sky + and accepted it was another £10 pm (well £9.75 now). But they wanted £260 for the second box (as they wanted to charge to plug it in). And they would not even quote a date for fitting, saying new customers were getting priority over HD boxes.

    Yet brand new customers can have a box for £49.

    As you can see treating new and existing customers alike, just as Sky say. :)

    They need a matrix system that would allow customers like you a free upgrade.
