I was one of those guys who took up the "chat offer" of 6 months for £20. Imagine my disgust and anger when last night they dropped the 9 months for £20. Not a happy camper.
I spoke to someone on chat again this morning and told them what had gone on and here is what they did.
Canceled my previous offer with immediate effect, put £20 credit on my account, then gave me another code for 9 months @ £20, thus paying for this month.
With hindsight on my own experiences and a note for others, wait until the day of F1 qualifying to see what they give out. My thought is if not many people take up their standard offer of £33.99 a month (and why would you at that price) then they are going to get an offer out there to get you on board.
£20 a months off a lot of people is better for them than nothing at all.
@Anonymous User You got a good deal initially and an even better one subsequently. So in all honesty no, I cannot imagine your "disgust and anger," none of this is compulsory, you know?
As @redchiz1 pointed out earlier unless you make a bulk payment upfront you can cancel whenever you want.
Everytime I’ve had any sports offer for x months, I’ve always been able to cancel well before term length of the offer. So if you only wanted it for 9 months there is nothing stopping you from cancelling after the 9th month.
It does state “cancel anytime”. Although the wording could be improved to show that you can cancel within the 12 months.
@gavs82008 thanks for sharing your past experience which does suggest the deal will work out cheaper for those (like me) only really interested in paying for F1. Although I'll take advantage of being able to watch some cricket and maybe even golf too while I have access I suspect.
Your welcome bud, glad to have helped.
It certainly is a good offer for 12 months if your able to find content to watch throughout the year.
Something I need to speak with the family to see if they want to take up the offer too. Even if it is for a few months.
You can have it for 2 months if you wanted, all that would happen is losing the discount if you signed up again for a new sports membership.
Got told to watch my inbox by customer support yesterday. Nothing so far, but hopefully something will arrive before next weekend!
No way I'm paying full price for Sky Sports just to watch a single channel!
