It's good deal, one bad point is that you have to take multi-room for the free install, I'm gonna give them a ring tomorrow to see if I can get the 149.00 deal without multi room, I guess I will have to pay for the installation which I don't mind.

sunil, This is a company offer any ideas what companies are running this promotion. Can you PM me the details. Thanks

Why does it say 'employeeoffer' in the url...? I rang Sky last week, they insisted it was still £299. Has it changed since then?

Edit: Nevermind, i can't apply for this.

These offers are only available to employees of companies that have joined the Motivano benefits Scheme. You will need to supply the name of the company you work for when taking up this offer

This is the reason why 'You're on your way now…Just take a moment to answer these questions so we can work out whether you are able to sign up to Sky online. Or, if you would prefer to speak to a helpful advisor, please call 08702 ******** and quote "Partner Offer" and your Company Name.'

You also have to enter your company details on the online application form, which why you have to know what companies are running this promotion in order to get the deal.

If you can get this deal you will also get 10% off the TV Packages, ie full package with HD is normally 53.50 on this deal it will be reduced to 49.15 for the first 12 months

Is it possible to take advantage of this offer for just the box only (i.e. no installation)?

I have Sky+ so I should be able to change over the box myself?

It's you again, :hiya:

The answer is yes if your lucky, phone the number of the web site, go through all the questions then just ask for the box only I'm sure they will do you deal if you agree to take the multi room if not they might charge you for installation. It's got to be worth a go. :thumbsup:

Right heres my situation. I currently have SKY multiroom and wanted to upgrade to SKY HD. Is it possible to have SKY HD in the bedroom but the normal SKY box downstairs? or do i have to have both as SKY HD boxes? Obviously i will have to pay the extra service charge for the HD channels but dont want it downstairs, just to replace the multi room box upstairs.

Many thanks

Yep, sorry. :blush:

I'm thinking of just going for the box only to take advantage of free BBC HD.

Just been on the scheme website, and put in all my details and pretended I worked for o2 :oops: , didn't actaully complete the order, got to the stage of putting in my credit card details.

Will Sky actually need proof that you work for o2 (or any other companies) as i don't!!!! Just don;t want to get in trouble thats all :thumbsup:

:hiya: , No worries

I don't think you will get a deal on only the box, even from Independent sellers they will make you take the Sky the package or they will charge you the full price for the box. It might be worth watching eBay to see if a box comes up on their.

I ordered online and was honest and quoted the company I work for, went through all the payment details, confirmed my payment and the system gave me reference number etc, I am still waiting confirmation from my CCC that payment has been taken.

I also phoned the number to ask a couple of questions none of the operators on that number knew anything about offer, I was given the VIP number, they didn't know anything about the offer, I even gave the operator the web address went through all the questions I wanted answers to, mentioned the company I work for, who incidentally pay SKY millions of pounds year in advertising revenue, she didn't say I couldn't have the offer so I completed the online transaction. Now it's just wait and see.

So if you live local to Chingford give it a shot.:thumbsup:

You should be able to convince the installer monkey to screw in to the connectors on the new Octo-LNB Sky HD comes with to the existing runs of cables, maybe crossing their palms with 10 pounds or a sandwich may help. The dish will be in your existing position. Remember, you are paying for a FULL install from scratch, some monkeys wing it and re-use existing cable runs when the main box stays put, and mount the new dish on the old wall mount.

Or you could do it yourself.

Multi-room is paying for the extra cabling work, not the LNB.

someone on the hukdeals forum said that sky were having a technical error and to try reprocessing it on friday.

I got mailshot the link to my work email, and the offer is on the front page of my internal work perks website.

perksfromo2.co.uk (redirects to motivano). It is genuine, for a more detailed read check the thread out on hotukdeals.com

anyone have any problems, feel free to drop me a pm, can take screenies if anyone is worried :rolleyes: :)

also there is a similar strange looking sky page giving away 22,000 tickets to see previews of a painted vail and 28 weeks later, its all above board though
