Sky Broadband and TV Offer XMas Freebies to Existing Customers

Monday, December 16th, 2019 (9:53 am) - Score 26,515

Customers of UK ISP Sky Broadband, Sky Mobile and Sky TV are being offered a raft of freebies for Christmas this year, including movies, TV sport, unlimited mobile data and free calls to any landline or mobile number – in any country – from a Sky Talk line (excludes calls to certain types of chargeable numbers) among other gifts.

Not all internet providers give gifts to their customers at Christmas but some do and that certainly seems to be true for Sky, which depending upon the service you take appears to be offering a fair selection of gifts that only existing customers can enjoy.

We’ve summarised some of these freebies below (including any caveats) and no doubt the degree to which they entice will vary from person to person.

Sky’s Christmas Gifts to Customers

Sky Broadband

* Sky Talk lines are being given free calls to landlines and mobiles “across the planet”, from Christmas Day until Boxing Day. You won’t be charged for any calls you start during this time. Excludes calls to certain types of chargeable numbers, such as Premium rate calls, Pager & Voice Messaging Services, Personal Number Services, Corporate Numbers and service calls (084, 087, 09 and 118 numbers), calls using call features, such as 1471, or calls with a 056 prefix.

Sky Mobile

* Mobile customers will get unlimited data for both Christmas Day and Boxing Day, only available to use in the UK. One small catch is that if you want to stream on Sky apps like Sky Go, you’ll need a minimum of 50MB data available on your data plan. Otherwise any data in your Piggybank won’t be affected during this period.

Sky TV

* The Sky Cinema film “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” will be shown to all TV customers for free via Sky One at 6pm on Christmas Day. But you’ll only get one chance as it won’t be available via on-demand.

* Sky TV customers will get access to all 8 Sky Sports channels on 25th and 26th December. Plus, the Darts World Championships on 27th December, and LIVE Premier League action on 28th December, all airing on Sky One. However customers with Essentials aren’t eligible for this gift. Red Button, On Demand and Catch Up TV won’t be available for non-Sky Sports customers as part of this gift.

* The somewhat mediocre (our opinion only) romance film “Love Actually,” which somehow became a classic, can now be added for free to your account via the Sky Store on your Sky Box if you do so between now and 31st December 2019. You know, just in case you miss the inevitable mass of TV repeats each year (it’s become like “The Great Escape” of Christmas – minus a motorcycle). Take note that some older Sky+ boxes aren’t compatible with the Sky Store and so might have trouble adding the Movie, not that it’s a big loss.

    Sky is rubbish, expensive, bad wifi, bad service in general i never recommend it.

    • Avatar New_Londoner

      Are you saying that the bad wifi is down to the Sky router, or is it due to environmental factors in a given location? I don’t have a Sky router so am not suggesting that you are wrong, am just trying to clarify one of the issues with Sky that you have highlighted.

    Sky far gone people don’t put in too expensive

  4. Avatar Martin Barrett

    Iv got sky tv and broadband i have all channels i pay 68 a month and i have had no problems at all i think the service is good customer support could be better but we can say that about all providers

  5. Avatar Stephen Lewis

    Far to expensive for service. You spend 1 hour negotiating a new deal and a few weeks later they just up the price anyway..my contact ends in April and i am finished with sky

  6. Avatar Joe

    Sky’s not all that bad, there is some good deals on packages you’ve just got to ask them to find out, the internet was mint until I moved into an area where there was no fiber so just had there broadband which isn’t best but hey ho it is what it is, each to there own when it comes to having sky.

  7. Avatar tony dodge

    I already got the movies and sport channels so how am I getting anything free. Some cash back would be nice.

  8. Avatar Dawn Jukes

    I would rather Sky give us a better WiFi signal ….. Come on Sky when are we getting digital equal to that of Virgin…

    • Avatar Yorkiebar99

      Virgin equipment has its own fair share of problems. Sky will be offering faster packages soon just sit tight.

    I have been a sky customer since 1991 I think its good value for money I pay £100 for tv phone & fibre broadband I have the skyQ with 2 mini boxes as I’m a VIP diamond customer I get first class service last year I wasn’t getting a signal si I phoned sky they could fix it over the phone they were down the next day to change the dish fast service

    • Avatar MartinConf

      You say its good value for money at £100, simple question how much was you paying in 1991 for Sky TV (there was no phone/broadband through them at that time)? I can answer that for you, exactly zero as all channels including movies were free and revenue was generated via TV adverts but they got greedy.

    • Avatar Bobs your uncle

      I’m all for sky but £100?

      I get same for around £68

      Have you ever tried ringing up and asking for half price on all your items, they are very good this way!

    • Avatar MartinConf

      @Bobs your uncle

      Kevin Goode said proudly “I’m a VIP diamond customer” so he is paying well over the top and snobby about it

    • Avatar Mike

      Or just pay £20 for internet and file-share the rest…

    • Avatar New_Londoner

      Of course, let’s encourage everyone to indulge in copyright theft, pushing up prices for those that do pay.

      Presumably you think it’s a good idea not to pay for car insurance either, dodge train fares etc?
