- HELP – BT or Sky.
Mrs Binners has this very afternoon signed us up for the full BT package, including Sky Sports.They’re very receptive to haggling. We’re paying nowhere near what the advertised figure is. And even that was cheaper than Sky.
You don’t even need to speak to someone (in Mumbia or otherwise). You can do your haggling over the instant messaging thing on their websitePosted 4 years agospooky_b329Member
No brainer if you can get Infinity in your area.
Also gets you unlimited BT Wifi/Openzone which is handy if you have a smartphone.
And Vision brings iplayer etc to the TV (as I had an old Sky box and they wouldn’t upgrade me without an extra cost package)
I’ve gone from Sky+ to the Vision box and although its not quite as intuitive navigating the menus, its no hardship, plus I get get HD for the first time (freeview HD) and there is still an app to set up remote record for the evening whilst you are bored on your lunchbreak 🙂
I hate Sky for their ludicrously long advert breaks which pretty much force you to record everything and watch it an hour later, I’d rather have a two minute break that I watch than what feels like a 10 minute break!Posted 4 years agoskiMember
I prefer sky’s interface, ever since BT updated their software earlier this year it seems so slow and for me, not as easy to negotiate.
Saying that, my 10 year old has no problems using it.
I have looked at going back to sky, mostly for the HD content and to see if I can save a bit on the bundle ( line rental, broadband, telephone, tv content), but there seems very little difference between them, apart from M&S vouchers 😯Posted 4 years agorewskiMember
BT Infinity and Youview here, got everything I need, all the BBC HD channels, PVR, and BT Player, HD films and TV Boxsets and they’ve got Curzon Home cinema with films on demand the same time as cinema, looking forward to watching the ginger baker doc, oh and they’ve just launched Sky Movies On Demand.Posted 4 years agoask1974Member
Moved from BT to Sky years ago and I can’t see BT enticing me back anytime soon, I deal with BT all the time (work related) and if there’s a worse company out there I’ve not dealt with them.
Don’t get me wrong I know Sky can be a pain as well, try ordering 25 Sky boxes for a single private residence! That took me about three days on the phone… But in my personal experience at least you speak to someone in the UK, in three years I’ve had maybe two problems both sorted easily. God help you if you run into trouble with a BT fault.
BT vision Vs Sky plus. HahahahahahahaPosted 4 years agowinston_dogMember
My BT contract was up this month. So I phoned them to see if they would match a Sky fibre and calls package on line. They were adamant that they couldn’t. Wouldn’t even drop the Infinity connection charge, so I said fine I would be transferring to Sky.
With Sky website apparently you don’t need a MAC so I didn’t ask for one.
I had second thoughts about joining the evil empire and a did search for other offers. Plus Net looked like a good deal and cheaper than Sky, so I signed up on line. After signing up I needed to get a MAC off BT so phoned their MAC number.
Surprise, surprise this chap could give me a better deal. So I have got Infinity Unlimited and BT TV for less than the PlusNet package and on a 12mth contract. No connection charges. I didn’t take his first offer either and he kept improving it. Have cancelled the Plusnet order now.
