Help choosing a Sky deal as a new customer

Sky was the first provider to offer new customers rewards for signing up online. Free shopping vouchers and gadgets (such as a free TV or tablet), are frequently advertised as part of a Sky deal. Although discount offers are automatic, it is worth noting that free vouchers and other gifts need to be claimed within 90 days of your services being activated.

Sky services now span satellite TV and fibre broadband, to international call packages and mobile phone price plans. Sky leads the way with its comprehensive TV bundles, and is still arguably the main player in the UK when it comes to sports. However, BT are now a serious challengers, so it is worth looking at what both providers have lined up in the coming 12 months.

And the Kit?

Sky Q now comes as standard replacing the old Sky+HD box. The Sky Q box is offered in 2 forms; the 1TB and 2TB box. The 2TB box is UHD (Ultra HD) ready, the difference in price is just in the setup cost. Record over 1000 hours of SD content and watch Sky TV in up to 4 rooms of your home, or on 2 Tablets anywhere. You can even record 4 channels at one while watching a 5th. The new Sky Q broadband router has also advanced, with it’s ability to link to the Sky Q box and use it as a WIFI hotspot.

Sky Multiscreen continues to be a popular option, subject to an additional £12.00 a month subscription. The first additional box is £20.00, subsequent boxes customers require cost an additional £99.00.

Optional call packages

You can choose the free pay as you call option, or opt for one of three comprehensive Sky Talk packages. Sky land line is payable which costs £18.99 per month. ‘Sky Talk Evenings & Weekends Extra’ costs £4.00 per month and gives you free inclusive calls to UK landline and mobiles. ‘Sky Talk Anytime Extra’ costs £8.00 per month which includes anytime calls to UK landlines and mobiles. Finally, ‘Sky Talk International Extra’ costs £12.00 per month. This package includes inclusive anytime UK calls and international calls to over 50 destinations. You also get free mobile calls to Hong Kong, USA and Canada.

Sky Mobile

In 2017 Sky entered the mobile phone sector in the UK with the launch of ‘Sky Mobile’. Based on the O2 network, Sky set out its’ stall in a slightly different manner to their competitors. Sky says that their service is based on flexibility. One of the first things that stands out from the crowd is that – whatever data you may have remaining at the end of the month carries over to the next. For existing Sky TV customers the attraction is the free unlimited UK calls and texts. This saves existing customers £10.00 a month, which is levied on non-Sky TV customers.

Data Allowance

Data is fairly expensive compared to other networks, with four options currently available:

  • 500MB for £5.00 a month
  • 1GB for £10.00 a month
  • 5GB for £15.00 a month
  • 10GB for £20.00 a month

The seemingly expensive cost for data can be viewed and off-set by taking into consideration the low (or no) upfront costs for the latest handsets. Find our more about Sky Mobile »
