Today I’ve been cancelling Sky and I also downgraded my BT Total Broadband to Option 1. It means that in Edinburgh I’ll now have a download limit of 5GB per month – I think this will be fine for a while, as I don’t DL that much at all and I’ve not really been taking advantage of my unlimited downloads.
While downgrading BT was pretty straight-forward, cancelling Sky is not as easy. I had looked into it a while ago as I really wanted to get rid of it; however, there is no option to just ‘tick a box’ or some such on my online Sky account. Instead, I had to research how to cancel Sky as Sky themselves are very careful *not* to include such information on their website (or at least no obvious, easy information and procedure. C****).
Anyhow, here are a couple of links explaining how to do it and thus escape from evil Murdoch’s digital embrace:
- How to Cancel Sky – the Christian Sat guide (aaawww… bless)
- Direct link to generic form you should use to cancel it
Apparently, this method works – even though afterwards they bombard you with junk mail begging you to come back to them. Well, I ain’t coming back. Ever. It was a mistake in the first place and only meant as a test – but unfortunately we didn’t cancel on time within the 30-days cool-off period, so they had us by the balls for 12 bl00dy months!
Useless rubbish. Get. Rid.
