Hi there,we have the full Sky package -phone/broadband and all channels apart from movies - but have a normal box and want to get Sky+ - phoned yesterday and was told it would cost £99 :eek: butto ring back today as their system was down - does anyone know how it can be had for less ???

At £99 that is cheap.
What you get.
1. New Box
2. Dual LNB for the dish
3. New cable downlead as SKY+ needs two cables to function correctly.

As Andy says, if that was including installation, that is dirt cheap. You can pay £60 just for installation, so you are getting the box for £40.

I called yesterday evening and told sky i wanted to cancel my subscription and move to virgin for the V+ box. I just told them Virgin was cheaper and they would install it all for free (all bull). They guy i spoke to said i could have a sky+ box and installation on friday for £49. Done deal!

So just threaten to leave them and they should do you a deal. Hope this helps.
