Sky fibre will not need TV


[link to this post]
 
I think I'm not the only one here thinking that Sky fibre would require Sky TV. It appears from this page that it won't.

£20 without TV, £7.50 with TV (TV from £20).

"Sky Broadband Unlimited Fibre will cost £20 a month for new and existing customers taking Sky Talk calls and Line Rental."

" Sky Talk calls packages £0-5 a month. Sky Line Rental £12.25 a month."

looks pretty clear, or is misleading wink

Very annoying that you have to move your line rental and calls to Sky to get their fibre broadband frown

They've moved away recently from requiring the TV as they realised it was limiting their market.

So if I read that right, it's £20 a month on top of everything else for Fibre if you don't have TV?

If so, that's very expensive compared to the likes of BT and TT.

especially as Sky is only offering the 40/2 product currently, doesn't look that great a deal at all.

That's why I posted. The common belief is/was that TV would be needed.

It isn't misleading, as the £7.50 is the price with TV.

Like BT and TalkTalk you mean? Their only big competitors. And no change from their LLU policy.

I presumed the £7.50 is for standard 'Broadband Unlimited' (as it states) and not 'Broadband Unlimited Fibre'

It seems both are being advertised on the same page going by the link at the top of this thread?

- not convinced. The fibre pricing text doesn't differentiate on the basis of TV. I think the £7.50 is the TV customer's price for standard broadband, which costs non-TV customers £10/month. http://www.sky.com/shop/broadband-talk/#join

My "misleading" comment referred to the nice clear wording and it would only be misleading if it isn't true in practice.

How is it expensive exactly talk talk is £38.30 for phone unlimited broadband + fibre, Sky is £32.25 for the same product 40/2 yea you've got to have tv as well but most people who have broadband and phone with sky also have TV anyway i know that's not all but most its still a hel of a lot cheaper than most of the resellers out there for truly unlimited un-shaped broadband.

Also the £7.50 a month is 100% for their ADSL it states unlimited broadband from £7.50 when taking a sky TV package starting at £20 a month (entertainment package)

You 100% need tv to get fibre at the moment that's why ive had to switch broadband providers because i no longer wanted the TV and they told me 100% i was not aloud the fibre without it, I was going to keep phone and broadband with them ready for the cabinet been activated but after been told this I ended up going with little big one on the DRN.
