Sky are giving away TVs and tablets while putting prices up
As you'll already know, Sky are putting their prices up. As a sweetener, they've decided to give some free things away, like TVs and tablets.
What exactly? Well, if you're a new customer who signs up before the 21st April, you can get yourself a 32" LG television as part of your bundle.
If you're not too fussed about getting a new television set, then you can also opt for a £100 Amazon or Tesco giftcard, £100 loaded onto a prepaid Mastercard, or a Samsung Galaxy Tab E. While this is good news for anyone who is thinking of becoming a Sky customer, this is a bit of a kick in the teeth for existing customers.
Furthermore, packages are going to be cheaper for new customers. For example, the Sky Movies bundle is £29 per month for half a year instead of £38 per month.
Either way, this particular offer is available across six bundles: The Original, The Complete, The Family, The Variety, Sky Movies and Sky Sports. You'll have to take out a 12-month contract, by the way.
As for the price increase for existing customers, Sky says that this has happened to fund more investment in content and customer experience. Basically, they're going to throw some money at Sky Atlantic programmes, and show more Premier League games. Sky have said that, should you be unhappy with the price rise, and you're no longer in the minimum term of your contract, you can cancel your contract.
You'll need to give 31 days’ notice and can cancel by calling Sky customers services.
