    Had a letter in today from sky saying that my 1 year warranty is nearlly up and that they can offer cover for a year for £99......to cover the box, remote and dish ....is this worth it?

    Anyone else taken this out.......says is with domgen.com

    If memory serves, Sky will charge £65 for a call out and will, if necessary, replace the box whereas the warranty costs £99. So, I guess if your box breaks down more than once in year, the warranty is worth it.

    But as seen on another thread, it's usually the HDD which breaks down,which is like £50 for a bigger one too! Depends if you're the DIY type, altho it's not difficult.

    Just a quick note.
    If they have given you a replacement box (I am on my 5th Sky + box!) you actually get a new 90 day warranty from date of installation. Needed to get confirmation from Sky as they do not publically tell you this.

    I can get a brand new Sky+ box for less than the price of 3 years additional warranty, so I think I'll risk it. After all, it's usually only the HDD that fails anyway, and they're less than £100 at the moment :smashin:
