Hurrah - a week off watching the cricket has paid off. SKY phoned me at home (despite me asking them to use my mobile) with the no £10 offer. The offer £249 (I could have pushed for £199 but I was too pleased to get the call to care) and no £10 ever provided I stay on the top movie + sport package. (Note: I am out of contract) Given the number of people recieving the offer so far I reckon they are box clearing ready for the new smaller box. Rather than retention I think they are trying to maintain people on the top tier for revenue maximisation (I don't buy the retention argument as they are a monopoly (NTL are so bad they don't count as competition . )). They are probably targetting high value(top tier) churn risk(out of 12 month contract) I was seriously looking at the purchase anyway (was awaiting the new smaller box) as I have surround sound(5.1) + never use my VCR (I actually removed it last week). Hope the box they give me works (and is quiet). I sense a 36" widescreen TV upgrade to celebrate my good fortune.
