Sky seem to have sold the names and subscription dates to an insurance company who are mail-shotting and then phoning with dire warnings re the expiry of you cover. The prices they are quoting are pretty high, upto 160 per year for a sky plus box and a second reciever which we have. Interestingly my Grundig reciever developed an intermittant fault a few weeks ago and I looked at getting it reparied - the reapir cost would have been about what the insurance was for the year on a single reciever (I think this was about 50 quid). I bought a refurb Panasonic - a much better model for £25 off an ebay business - works fine! Sky plus boxes seem to go for about £100 - so before you fork out £160 to extend the warrenty its worth condiering this.
