Is this really a good deal?
Let’s take a look… The standard out-of-contract price is currently £55 per month (Sky TV @ £25pm + all Sky Sports @ £30pm = £55). Our research shows that the next best offer price is normally around £48 per month (Sky TV @ £25pm + all Sky Sports @ £23pm = £48).
The cost for this Sky Sports Offer, Live Action Bundle or Comeback Special – as it’s sometimes branded – is £39 per month. That’s a saving of £162 on the next best offer price, or £288 on standard pricing. The deal is subject to an 18 month contract and the one-off setup cost for your Sky Q box and installation is £20.
What about BT Sport?
BT Sport is now available from Sky and can be added to this offer for £13 extra per month. The price is £25 a month without Sky Sports. Simply add this pack » to your Sky basket.
Can I watch in Ultra HD?
Yes, but not all content from Sky is in UHD. Many Premier League games are now available in UHD, you just need to look out for this option on your Sky TV guide on-screen. The Ultra HD pack can be added to your Sky services via your basket. It will cost you an extra £10 per month and also covers Netflix and other TV packs which show content in the UHD format.
What about Multiscreen
Sky Multiscreen has been called Multiroom and the Sky Q Experience in recent times. This is slightly confusing as people assume that you need this pack to get Sky Q. That is not the case! Sky Q is now standard with all Sky TV orders. Sky Multiscreen is simply needed to access Sky TV in more then one room of your home. This costs an extra £14 per month and an additional setup cost of £20 is applied to your setup costs to cover the extra Sky Q mini box.
Can I add Sky Broadband?
Yes, Sky are currently promoting two of their OFCOM award winning* broadband services with up to a £162 discount. A casual service averaging 11mb speeds for £14 a month (reduced from £22) and their Superfast fibre service which averages 59mb in speed, which is currently on a further discount offer of £18 a month (reduced from £27).
After you run-a-check on availability for your home (2nd page of order form), the Sky system will advise you on what service you can receive. You maybe offered a slower Fibre service, or the casual 11mb option if the fibre is not available where you live.
