I got a sky HD box and 12 month sub for FREE

I had to ring them up to change the payment over to direct debit a couple of weeks ago, so while I was there thought I might see if they could offer me a good deal on HD

I asked them how would I go about cancelling my account (as I was considering getting a freesat HD box). So they told me what I had to do, and I said so do I do that with you now?.... then of course they say why do you want to cancel.

I said their SKY HD is too expensive and I am just going to get a free sat sky HD box instead as it works out cheaper.

So then he said he could try and get me a deal to make up for the cost. He offered:

6 months of half price telephone package (which I already have with them) = saving of 30
6 months half price line rental if I switch to them = saving of 40 ish

Then either upgrade my channels to basically everything for for 6 months for no added cost, or reduce my channels for 4 months to save 56.

Total saving would be: 126

Total cost of HD is: subscription 10 x 12 months + HD box 49 + installation 30 = 200. So I would have had to pay 74 which I was fairly happy with!

So I said ok go ahead, but when he came to do the discounts the phone package discount didn't go through, so he just put me down for 12 months free line rental instead!!!!!!!! So my new savings are:

140 line rental saving
56 sub saving

Total saving = 196 which basically covers the cost of the HD box and 1 years subscription! Which I can cancel after the first year if I want to! (but still keep the HD box and the 'free' hd channels like BBC and CH4)

As it turns out I was actually paying BT 18 a month line rental as there's things like call-minder on it (which sky do for free!) so they've actually ended up giving me Sky Hd PLUS 70 odd quid

I did this about two weeks ago and they came and installed it today.

Sweet.
