Sky to offer TV and Broadband service for half price for a year... with a catch

Sky will offer its TV and broadband service for only £14.50 per month (instead of £29) for a year, that’s a saving of £174 on the suggested retail price of the package when purchased via

Only the first 2,250 new customers living in Sky Network areas will get this deal. The offer doesn’t include Sky line rental (at £14.50 per month) or the delivery charge for the router (at £2.18). Sky sweetened the deal with a £25 M&S voucher and free standard set-up..

The bundle includes over 40 entertainment channels (on top of the usual Freeview/Free-to-air ones), a free Sky+ box which includes PVR capabilities, Sky Broadband unlimited, inclusive weekend calls and the Sky Hub router. The broadband doesn’t come with any monthly usage cap or any traffic management during peak times.

You will be able to add entertainment extra for £2.50 per month, Sky Movies for £8 a month, Sky Sports for £10.50 a month and Sky Go Extra for £5 a month.

All these addons bar Sky Go Extra normally are half priced. Note that the contract is only valid for 12-months which means that you should be free to move elsewhere (or try to get a better deal).

Otherwise prices will double (and possibly more should Sky increase the cost of its services over the next year).
