Yup i’ve decided to get rid of my sky tv. Why? you ask, well it’s mostly due to the fact that due to working shift work I don’t actually watch much TV hence the Â£45 odd per month is wasted, also evertime someone walks past my house and sneezes I loose my signal. I was going to upgrade to Sky+ but again that was Â£150 for the box and Â£30 install.
I phoned Virgin and plyed them with my negotiation tactics and managed to get their V+ box for Â£75 instead of Â£150 and their XL TV Package and 2meg BB for Â£24 per month. Yes i’ve heard all the bad stuff about Virgin TV what with the planner crashing and being slow etc but when I used to pay out Â£25 for my Demon broadband (which I only got 1meg from) and Â£45 for sky I think it makes economical sense to move.
I’m currently waiting for the men from Virgin to turn up and install it. At the end of the day I have a 30 day money back guarantee on it and my sky contract doesn’t end till the end of the month so if it’s that bad i’ll stick with sky.
