Sky LLU to TalkTalk LLU best way to switch?


[link to this post]
 
Background...

I currently have full LLU with Sky, which I've had for nearly a year so my contract is almost up. I have a triple-play TV, broadband and phone package.

What I'm looking at doing...

The TV works out more expensive than TalkTalk's YouView and I only watch Sky1, but pay circa £20 a month for all the Entertainment channels and there's no cheaper choice with Sky. Because of this I'm looking at jumping ship to TalkTalk with the Plus TV package in a few months when my minimum term ends with Sky Broadband. The problem is I'm not 100% sure after reading multiple different views on the subject, whether Sky can give me a MAC code in this situation and if they can't how I would go about switching to TT while keeping my number.

Any advice appreciated, thanks.

Since phone is LLU then no MAC is required to move to TalkTalk. Sign up with TalkTalk after you verify with them you can keep your number.

Thanks for your reply, thought this might be the case as there was no MAC code asked for when I joined Sky. I'll get onto them about keeping my number, which channel of sales support do you think is most reliable for these sorts of queries (Live Chat, Email or Telephone)?

Definitely something written, so not phone.

Hi there, I am on the TT Members forum, and the view given regarding the YouView service so far is hardly great if I am honest.

I would look into it in great detail before taking a chance with YouView with TT. I am not sure if it's a YouView issue or a TT issue. But there are several unhappy users certainly on the TT Forums.
