Anyone got a great deal on satellite sports?

Post by Topdawg on Wed Aug 09, 2017 3:10 pm

Thinking to get a sport package (or two) this season.

I just want to watch the footy in the PL and CL. That, realistically, means I have to have both BT Sports and Sky Sports. I also want broadband and line rental (which I currently have with Sky).

I've had a quick look around on the web but why do they make is so confusing???

It's all garbage Dawg...

I have the complete package with Sky - pretty much everything you can watch, plus multi-room HD - box sets, you name it....and it costs me £75 per month. 

I'm loathed to pay it, but I do get my BT Sports for free as my Broadband is with BT.

It's such a bloody nightmare now trying to work out what you want, especially, as taking it all with one provider doesn't get you the best package.

Good luck!

The only real deal at the moment seems to be from TalkTalk who are doing all the Sky Sports channels for £8.50, however even that deal would not tempt me anywhere near that hacked disgrace of a company.

I just stick with BT myself, and I use my old chaps Sky Go on a mini PC attached to my TV.   Gave up on Sky a few years ago.

I think free streaming is going to be tough this season, Sky and the Prem are coming for the streamers with both barrels loaded it would seem.

BT broadband seems to be the best for me....Virgin super-duper broadband hasn't made it to our country roads yet....BT are now about to install super-optic fibre broadband....but when they get round to our lane, I've no idea.

They are more expensive though than Talk Talk etc....but tried Talk Talk for 6 months about 6 years ago....fucking woeful customer service....so you roll the dice and all that.

so, all in all, must be costing around £100-£105 per month

BT offering me standard deal:

BT Infinity up to 54 MBS (probably min of 17MB), SKy main event + sky sports extra (should have all 126 PL games between the two) and BT sports (rest of PL games and CL)

I looked at all the options earlier this year....for me, the best deal is having BT as my broadband provider and Sky Sports....if Sky had fibre broadband in my area, it worked out slightly cheaper on the Sports front and calls, but I still needed to pay for BT Sports (which makes me feel sick to watch Jake Numpty and his cronies - so I get it free with my BT broadband, so sits easier with me).

TBF, BT customer service has been great for me. I complained earlier in the year that the broadband kept cutting out whenever someone called the home phone and took 2 mins to get back up.....they came out twice within 24 hours and even though the fault was with the main exchange a mile away, they replaced all my telephone sockets to the latest ones for free.

My BT and broadband though is £54 per month....free everything incl Sports etc, but I'm sure it's cheaper with other providers.

Guess it depends on what you want/need.

In total, I pay £129 for my Total Broadband and calls etc and Sky FULL package that includes everything HD, multi-room, box sets etc....no cheap, but it's worked so far for me.

BT are charging £57.50 a month for infinity broadband, BT sports and sky main event and sky sports extra. Sky wanted £19 for my broadband, £15 for basic sky and £18 for the PL footy channel.

He couldn't tell me the price of BT sports (he knew really). He offered me the basic package for £18 when people are being offered all sports channels for £20

He said main event doesn't have all PL games. It he hung up when I asked him if the missing games were in sky sports extra ( as I read online). The missing games will most likely be the shitty Ines (or should be)

So SKY wanted £51 a month from r same old slow broadband without BT sports. For the extra £6.50 a month, I think I'll go for BT's infinity, all BT sports and sky main event and extra. The cricket (only other sport I'm interested in) should really be main event during the day in the summer.

Unless I go for BT infinity at £30 a month and SKY offer me something decent like all sports for £20 a month and £15 a month for basic SKY. Basic SKY is all I need for my kids.

Yep...that's why I ended up just paying for free everything with BT Broadband....and then EVERYTHING with Sky.....saves me having to work out what's worth what for the sake of a few quid.

I know I could balance it out and get it cheaper if I change everything, but sometimes, it's easier staying and pestering them every 6-12 months for a better deal.

I'm sure as a new customer, especially now, prior to the season, you can get the best price.

I'm assuming it's for your Rochdale place? My friend is a CS Manager for Sky, but she can't get me any greater deals as I'm an existing customer.....you want me to call her?

Yeah, why not. Honestly, we aren't there that much so I really should do all this for sometime next year. But I fancied watching the Brighton match if I make it home in time.

What you've done sounds like the sensible solution as I wouldn't have to pay the set up fee with BT for the SKY channels (£60)

Cheers mate. I think I'll get BT infinity started up swiftish to start with. Don't reckon I'll be home in time for the City match anyway. I'll wait until Sky offer me a great deal on the sports channels. I think I'll try and hold out for £20 for all sports channels which many people seem to have been offered.

I'd probably go that way....BT Infinity and then a Sky Sports package with some free ad-ons if you can.

Will let you know tomorrow when she comes back to me.

I spoke to my friend and she said the codes aren't great at the moment for what you need...but she said the best would be to do what you're doing - get BT Infinity and the £20 pm full Sky Sports package.
