    Sky+

    My mum has been with Sky for about 13 years and now wants to upgrade to Sky+ so she can record stuff.. Now I just checked and for aN EXISTING customer there is a setup fee of £60 but for new members its just £30.. Is it just me or is that crazy? No rewards for being loyal at all..

    Its a joke, although im sure if you kick up a fuss they will drop it down to £30, just mention switching to virgin media and they will drop it down to £30 or might even do it for free.

    Or you could actually go to Virgin media?

    I just had for 65 pounds a month, V+ box which records two seperate channels whilst watching a third (like there's ever that much on tv to do that!) and it's HD ready. 20mb broadband connection, and unlimited phone calls plus 25% off to mobile phones. Oh and they install a second box in another room (not a v+ box though just a standard one)
