    Just Ordered Sky HD

    Fancied getting Sky in for a while, but never fancied paying 61 for it. So imagine my surprise yesterday when I stumbled upon a voucher code giving me:

    Free Sky HD box
    Free Standard Setup
    All 6 variety packs (kids, music, news etc)
    Sky Sports Pack (SS1, SS2, SS3, SS4, SSExtra, SSNews etc)
    Sky Movies Pack (all the Sky movies channels)
    HD Pack (usually a tenner extra a month)

    for the tiny amount of, 25.50 a month. Oh, and I did the transaction through QuidCo, so I should have 100 cashback coming in, meaning the monthly figure is actually around the 17 mark.

    12 months, and can cancel straight after the price reverts to full price.

    ??? no they can't that's why it's called a contract and if they chnage it and don't give you relevant warning etc... you can terminate it.

    Erm, no, they can't. I'm signed in for that price for 12 months. If they change the price within that time I have the right to cancel my contract.

    half price SKY tele codes - Digital World Cable Satellite Console Forum

    The second code worked for me, but not sure if they are still working (as Sky clock on after a while and cancel the code). My installation is sorted though

    The code is now rejected I think, I got the email through saying please call them for further details, they asked where I got it etc, and said they will not process it so I cancelled the order

    The best time to call Sky to cancel, get a better deal etc is a Thursday evening before 10pm.

    The folk that work there get a 'bonus' for every person they get to change their package or stay with Sky. Their bonus ends at 10pm on a Thursday night so they will do more to get that last few bonuses.

    If your sky box is faulty, anyone you call at Sky can get you a free box.

    Oh bum I was hoping to sign up/switch to this package tonight. I'll phone them anyway and tell them I'll be thinking of leaving and see what they offer.

    I've had the email saying my order is now active and I should expect the Sky engineer on a week Sunday (time I chose).

    Because my order went through initially it should be fine still shouldn't it even though they are now rejecting that code?

    By the way, I stumbled on that code by Googleing 'half price sky tv voucher code' and then changing the search to only show results from the past couple of days. Keep doing that nephilim and you may strike lucky soon enough.
