No, they won't. I am not sure how the finances work these days but do Discovery pay Sky to host their channels? If they do then actually Sky could justify putting prices up as they would be losing income.

They have no contractual reason to renegotiate with you.

I suspect this is just a dance while Discovery & Sky negotiate a new contract.

This also happened in the Nordic countries a while ago when the Discovery channels did indeed disappear for a while, until a deal was worked out.

I called earlier today and am now paying £15 less per month and I'm getting a refurbished box FOC (no £65 engineer call out).

Been a customer for 20 years. They don't want to lose customers.

Any reason why that link is an affiliate link going through http://successfultogether.co.uk/?

TVPLayer is losing the channel so I stopped my subs.

I think the affiliate link might be from TBB - I have a feeling that they trap certain addresses so if you follow a link from here to the Sky site it may automatically add the affiliate code so that if you then go ahead and buy then TBB get the credit for it.

I believe that is the case but I am sure if it isn't then MrS will correct it.

Thanks Liam,

You see Ian I hate things like this - if correct and funds are needed why not do what I've been saying for years, charge a small amount per month for the tools that we all use? I am sure people would pay.

I've also been stating that for years.

Pay more for using the internet. If you use 100GB / month, then pay more than those that use only 2GB / month.
