    The best way to do that is to cancel and let them chase you. You’re bound to get a better deal that way than straight up upgrading.

    Yeah, I’ve done that for the last few years. Currently on a 60% off deal, but rumours are that Sky are clamping down on these sort of deals now. We’ll have to see when the time comes.

    It’s fairly common for companies who send out hardware to record the MAC address when they ship them out so even with self install they would know. For example when ISP's including sky ship you out a router its already registered the info on their system, the same with Amazon and their streaming boxes/sticks

    I'm after an additional Sky Mini, was prepared to stump out the £99 but they also want to charge a £60 engineer call out fee making it £159!!

    Had an online chat and got one for £69, apparently you can self install now

    Yes self install has been available for Mini boxes since 03/05/2018, you must contact Sky directly to request it. It costs £26 for first Mini and £69 for additional Mini’s.
