I’d also like to mention that when I did ring to cancel my Sky subscription in July this year, they offered to make my subscription half price for three months in an attempt to make me stay.
So, with a bit of leg work (and depending on your circumstances), it does look like you might be able to get Sky cheaper and for the 9 months that F1 is aired.
It may be possible to have a rolling contract if you were a previous Sky subscriber:
Sky: Hi. Welcome to Sky, home of HD. You’re chatting to Sky. Can I take your name please?
You: Hi, My name is Stephen
Sky: Hello Stephen, How are you doing today?
You: I’m thinking of coming back to Sky but I don’t want to be tied into a 12 month contract. Would this be possible?
Sky: I’m Afraid it will be a 12 months contract for everyone
Sky: Have you subscribed to Sky within the last 12 months?
Sky: In this case you can call our customer service team on 08442 414141 and Reinitiate your old account and may be you can go for monthly subscription without contract
You: Ok, Thank you
I don’t think a boycott will solve anything. My suggestion would simply be, don’t buy Sky and Sky Sports.
Well, I’m going to be a total geek and call it the “Ferrari 61776”.
61776 is the decimal number for the hex code F150.
I think the comments are really good as they are. Sure sometimes there are heated debates which can go on but this is only because most people here are passionate about Formula 1.
I know you said you’re not looking technical suggestions, however, the only one I would suggest at this time is some sort of live comments update. So instead of being subscribed to the email responses which is sometimes hard to follow if there are alot of comments, it would be a nicety if new comments just appeared below previous comments.
Keep up the good work :)
