Whatever happened to that? I remember when it first came out we were charged £2.50 and had no choice in paying it. Eventually the price disappeared off the front but the price of my bill didn't, and then the mag stopped coming altogether yet the price never came off, maybe SKY just think their customers forget these things but I don't.:thumbsdow

This has been covered so many times.
It was shown as a separate charge purely so that Sky could set it off against VAT so it was really part of the subscription and when it stopped the subscription stayed the same.

I don't think you are correct. The magazine may have had a "nominal" £2.50 list price but was never charged to customers - it was paid for/subsidised by external marketing - much the same reason as initial boxes were subsidised by making people have them connected to a phone line for the first 12 months.

It definetley was because the price on my bill went up £2.50 at the time.

If yours did then you must have been the one in 9.5 million who got charged.

Well I've been told I was 1 in a million but 1 in 9.5 million is even better :rotfl:

Isn't that what mavericks are all about - being unusual, even unique?
