Sky Packages - Existing & New Customers
Many people think that Sky is just a satellite Sky TV provider. While they do indeed offer some of the very best TV packages in the UK they also offer fantastic communication services, which can be taken as standalone packages or as part of great value bundles.
There has never been a better time to join Sky TV. Today’s Sky offers a broader choice of channels than ever before and the latest version of their revolutionary Sky+ is more advanced than any previous model.
Sky is also including more channels than ever in its most basic TV packages. The Variety and Style & Culture packs have been combined into the joint Entertainment Pack.
This channel pack includes 40 channels including Sky1, Sky Atlantic, Sky2, FX and both Sky Arts channels. Subscribing to a Sky TV package will also get you the full range of digital Freeview and exclusive Sky free-to-air channels, giving you literally hundreds of channels to enjoy.
For a small additional monthly fee you can also add the Entertainment Extra pack, which brings with it a further 80 subscription-only channels. These extra channels include such favourites as Discovery, National Geographic, Disney XD, Sky Sports News and the full family of MTV channels.
Alongside their excellent digital TV services Sky also offers broadband Internet access that can be subscribed to as a standalone service or, more frequently, as part of a bundle.
Sky Broadband Everyday Lite is a very widely used broadband package amongst UK consumers as it is frequently bundled with Sky TV and calls packages.
It has a top download speed of 14Mb and comes with a 2GB monthly download allowance and an inclusive Sky Box wireless router, worth £50.
A very popular alternative is Sky Broadband Unlimited. It has a top download speed of 14Mb, includes a free wireless router and is topped off by a truly unlimited monthly download allowance.
This is one of the few truly unlimited broadband packages in the UK and as such is incredibly popular with consumers. Sky TV customers often choose to pay the extra to bundle Sky Broadband Unlimited with their TV subscriptions in order to make the most of the Sky Anytime+ on-demand service.
Both of the above Sky broadband packages are only available in areas within Sky’s network. In other areas a more basic package is usually available. Sky Broadband Connect is an ADSL package which features up to 8Mb broadband with a 40GB monthly download allowance.
Sky also offers two inclusive calls packages that can help you to save some serious money on your phone bill.
With Sky Talk Weekends you can make unlimited calls of an hour or less to UK landlines all wekend. This means that all calls of an hour or less made to numbers beginning 01, 02, 03 between midnight Friday and midnight Sunday won’t cost you a penny.
And, for those that make a lot of calls during weekdays, Sky Talk Unlimited is ideal. With this package you can make unlimited calls to landlines all day, every day at no extra cost above the subscription charge.
Either of these phone packages represents fantastic value for money and bundling one with other Sky services gets you a discount on the monthly charge.
Sky Line Rental
To subscribe to any Sky broadband or calls package, or a bundle which includes Sky broadband or calls, requires switching line rental to Sky.
Switching is easy and Sky will normally be able to transfer your number when you do. And, as Sky’s line rental is just £14.50 compared to BT’s £15.45, you’ll also save some money when you make the switch.
