:confused: Just had a lady on the phone telling me my warrenty for my 2 sky boxes and sattelite equipment has expired,then tells me to take a note of my local engineers number, Which I does :D then il be able to call them out and if they cant fix it they will replace it. :D
Then asks me how I would like to pay the £6.51 a month for extended warrenty :eek:
To which I of course replied '' If the boxes break or fail to work and Sky wont fix it free of charge il simply cancel the £45 a month that i pay for subscribing''
To this she told me that it covers everything including the Dish and cables and what would I do with all the equipment if I wasnt recieving Sky?
So i replied '' I would simply rip it off the wall and sell it for Scrap!!''






She Hung Up :confused:

What I want to know is why people bother payng extra for Sky?? There's plenty of **** on Freeview so why shell out for more, unless you are a keen sports fan (which I'm not, although I do like a bit of ladies beach volleyball;))

The worst thing is, that the lady that rang you won't be from SKY!!! its a third party company who are just selling a warranty.... I've come across this before (working in a TV shop), as you say if your SKY goes wrong go back to SKY???? rip off companys :(

I HATE SKY. their customer service is s+++t. We moved house and the Sky was in my girlfriends name so thought we'd get loads of free stuff by opening it in my name. so far so good then some how stupidly mentioned that my girlfriend had previously had sky "oh no sir you can't have any of that" after much blagging and threating to not bother they said "OK then, have it all".

Brilliant bloke came fitted dish... "no there no free HD+ box, nothing on my records". So no HD+ box internet never worked and my girlfriend spent the best part of 10 hours on the phone being lied to and cut off on a regular basis.

Then they had the cheek to send a bill for the internet they supposedly provided, now we've ignored them and its seems to have finally worked and they bills have stopped

once again I HATE SKY, bunch of ****.

We can't get freeview in our town and normal telly only offers BBC1 & 2, ITV1 & S4C (nearly channel 4, but in the medium of Welsh). Not much good if your a Glaswegian that doesn't speak Welsh. On the plus, my dog speaks Welsh...she's from CwmbranI:

when they ring me and say Mr spock?
i reply. "I am not that person but I am the agent acting on behalf of that corperate entity"
that is normally enough to get rid of them.
but if they continue to pursue the "are you or you not Mr Spock"
then my ultimate answer is
"I am not a legal fiction or a peice of paper, I am a free man and i will not be contracting with you today"
that is deffo enough to see them flee. :D



the truth is......... it's the legal truth! Rasp:

i hate sky tho. they robbed me over my sky+ box.
i payed £5 a month when i had no house to keep my account open.
they promised me a free sky+ box when i reconnected.
when i set it up and ordered the new box i got charged £125.
then they'll only deal with you by letter?
Oy Hates they i does!
