Looking at deals with sky

Been looking at deals with sky Q.

Currently on the fullhouse package and have been since 2018 with a 350mb BB upgrade but well out of contract now. We also have talk weekends, our current price is 112 a month.

I've been looking at deal with the NHS and we can get a SKY Q box with Sky tv + netflix and the UHD+HD package for 33 a month

I was thinking of getting that and dropping Virgin tv and phone line but staying with their BB.

We don't watch sport or movies so is there anything missing from Sky that virgin don't have?

If you search around you can get friend and family referrals for Sky dunno if that beats the NHS deal

Only the Virgin Ultra HD channel I think, but with Sky, you get Sky Atlantic. They are probably the only principal differences in content you will notice.

There is also a better choice of streamers, including Apple TV+.

Re: Looking at deals with sky

Managed to get a deal with VM they tried to say if we left for SKY at 33 a month then it would cost us 60 a month for the stand alone 350m BB which is nonsense. After some debate we've gone from 112 a month to 68 a month for 18 month then 91 after to stay on the same package.

So a bit of a win at the moment

Standalone Broadband on VM is expensive.

On the TV comparison side, Sky no longer carries Eden HD, TCM HD, & ITV Be HD, although the latter is available on demand.

Really? I only pay 20pm for 250Mb. I'm quite happy with that.

Re: Looking at deals with sky

Just to bump this.

Is it still possible to get good deals on Sky with Sky Q? It seems they're pushing everyone to Sky Steam but my main purpose for the television package is live sport and i really don't want to be on a delay.

Everytime I have tried to look at Sky Stream on the site it just tells me I already have Sky, and wont display prices, options or even any information. Its like they are doing the opposite, pushing me away from it.
