Sky.com/free Offers Sky+ HD Box With No HD Pack
Sky (sky.com/free) has launched a free Sky+ HD box offer for new Sky TV customers not ready to take the Sky HD pack.
Up until now, new customers signing up to Sky TV online had to pay a one off £49 for the Sky+ HD box if they were not taking the £10 a month HD pack containing 37 HD channels. Free standard set up applied.
The change means the Sky+ HD box can be ordered for free without the £10 a month HD Pack, although a £30 standard set up fee now applies. Users can then take the Sky HD Pack whenever they are ready.
Sky’s digital TV packages are split into 6 entertainment packs so customers only pay for the type of TV they wish to watch.
One entertainment pack starts from £18 a month while additional TV packs can be added for just £1 a month each.
Broadband speeds up to 2Mbps, plus free evening and weekend phone calls to UK landlines are also included in the £18 a month package.
New customers joining Sky can also receive a free £50 Marks & Spencer voucher if they order Sky TV online at the sky.com/free website before the 25th March 2010.
New customers ordering Sky TV online after this date can still get a free £25 M&S voucher.
