It gives you a full list in the advert, and it's not pay once then forget as it states:
**After 4 months you will continue to receive sky TV for 19 per month, Let Sky know before then if no longer want to receive Sky TV.and you will not be charged a penny.**

All you will have then is the FTA and FTV channels, basically what anyone can get with a receiver and a dish pointing at 28.2E, providing they have a FTV card.

I would check the Sky website to see if they are still honouring this deal as I suspect that they might not give you free fitting, or the equipment, unless you agree to a 1 year minimum contract.

Just checked on Google and Argos state that this offer is no longer available, type sky pay once watch forever into google and check the results.

There is also an old thread on the subject on Techwatch:
Sky Pay Once,Watch Forever-Half price(nearly)

This has always been the case with the Pay once Watch Forever offer.
Just remember to cancel at least a month before the fourth month,by putting in writing/email,in addition to a telephone call.
Whereas the continued FreesatfromSky offer is a one off 175,and only offers the FTA/FTV channels.

Has anyone got this offer?
Could you tell me what you get in the box?
Also i am unable to find out from sky as i dont know how to do the live chat.
Can someone else please check for me?

Also sky would charge 21 pm now.

Could this just be a old deal that this guy brought?

Thanks for everyone who helped. Anymore help would be wonderful. Thanks

I brought this offer 2 days ago.

Arrived today.

I asked the guy and he asked me to come to his house and he explained everything.

Ive told sky and they have told me that it will be installed today at 3PM!

This is good news as i can now have sky in the other room with a subsciption.

I currently pay 48 for all the packages for my other sky subsciption.

They also offered to give me HD channels for 20. I accepted the offer. I have 1 HD box spare so they are going to pair up the viewing card on it. They are also going to give me a standard sky box which i wont use.


55

News and Events pack
Childrens pack
Style and culture pack
Variety pack

This offers 10 HD CHANNELS!

Hi,

Badboy147, which number did you ring to get installation date and did you explain that you got the package on Ebay? I have bought similar package after seeing your thread.

Thanks
