Customers of BT and Virgin are offered a substantial discount if they move their television and internet service to Sky.
SKY has a very appealing offer that should make moving your TV or broadband services from other providers like BT or Virgin Media a lot easier.
Sky is offering new customers the opportunity to get money back on their bill if they transfer to the company, which might make switching providers a lot more appealing. This latest offer is applicable to anyone who is faced with the agony of getting charged for terminating their current Sky subscription early and then receiving a £200 refund when they join.
If a consumer decides to cancel their contract early, most Internet Service Providers (ISPs), including BT and Virgin Media, will impose a fee.
BT, for example, says that anyone who departs before the end of the agreed-upon term will be charged the entirety of the remaining amount they would have paid up until the conclusion of their minimum time.
The final bill is reduced by VAT and the savings made by BT as a result of the person quitting early. So, if your monthly payment is £35 and you have four months left on your contract, BT will charge you £67.32 to transfer to someone else.
Customers will be charged to leave Virgin Media, with the total charges capped at £240.
That’s a very steep amount to pay, and Sky is well aware that these high costs may deter consumers from signing up for its service, so it’s offering a payment to make moving more appealing.
You’ll get a £100 credit if you switch to its broadband or just want to watch TV. If you bundle your TV and internet into one plan, you’ll save £200 on your monthly price.
There are a few conditions, including providing Sky with a copy of your existing supplier’s final bill and proof that you have paid it.
If you’ve been considering switching, you can get all the information you need here.
Sky TV subscriptions start at £25 per month, with broadband starting at £28 per month.
These packages start at £33 per month if you want both TV and broadband.
Sky isn’t the only company offering incentives to customers who move to its broadband service.
Vodafone has also promised that anyone willing to quit their present ISP will receive significantly reduced rates. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
