I said I pay by direct debit.
She then said you had to pay by card to get the discount. Obviously this confirmed my suspicions that this was a scam call so I said I wasn't prepared to pay on card. She then said she would make a note and then ended the call.

What is Sky Q, how much does it cost and how can I get it?
The last call I received was at 10 past 8 this morning, they are so thick skinned. Sky switch team called before Sky was supposed to call claiming that they were going to help with broadband installation.

Big error; plus the people at Sky always had a Scottish accent whenever I talked to them. You're not the first person to have experienced this. It's ridiculous that SKY gives you a secure login to your account on its website but via which you cannot cancel your contract. It suggests they have no confidence in their own security procedures or could it be that they want to speak to you on the phone to try and persuade you to stay??
Where in the UK do you live Ferdinand? And what was the black car?
LincolnshirePoacher - Sep AM. I watched the two men in the car park behind my hedge, get out of the car, open the hatchback and put on high visibility jackets - I thought they were some kind of road work engineers. Then they walked up my driveway and rang the bell.
I cautiously answered the door - they said they were from SKY they had a sky logo on their sweatshirts, but it was the wrong typeface. They said ' we've come to check the work the SKY engineer has just done'. Well, how rediculous is that! Two people, in high visibility jackets, in an unmarked family car, both with clip-boards in hand checking the work of one man who had just left!!!
I firmly told them I didn't want the work checked - they were suprised and tried to push it, so I closed the door. They very slowly walked back to their car, sat there for a while and eventually left. Meanwhile I phoned SKY, they told me they don't send out inspectors like that. I telephoned the local police and gave them the car reg which I had noted as it drove away. Police said they would keep a look out for the vehicle - I heard nothing more.
So, it seems they were following the engineer's van and trying on a scam. I wonder what they were planning to do? Then two days ago 2 years later I get a call saying my maintenance contract was coming up for renewal for my Sky HD box.
I asked where they got my number - he said 'from our database'. Well, I never take out maintenance contracts on anything, so I knew it was a scam. I told them I don't pay for any maintenance contracts - and put the phone down - I checked the number, but it was witheld.

Sky has recently announced that starting in , the company will be offering a dish-less service through their Sky Q. Until then, however, you still need a satellite dish for a Sky subscription, although there are some workarounds. Compare now. Communal TV systems let residents in flats subscribe to Sky without the need to get an individual satellite dish. Sky has three different types of communal TV systems: a shared dish, an integrated reception system and a single cable solution.
