Should we get Sky Cinema & Sky Sports

Should plusnet management ask for Sky Cinema & Sports because they would get more subscribers.

Re: Should we get Sky Cinema & Sky Sports

I don't think Plusnet should be trying for more subscribers until it can provide a decent service to the ones it already has.

Sky Cinema and Sky Sports are available via a NowTV compatible device. (But only at  SD or 720pHD).

I'd much prefer it if plusnet could once again supply a no frills basic broadband only at a realistic price,

The jump to £13.49 plus the additional mystery fee of £31.99 (shouldn't that now be added to the monthly charge) go nowhere except scream we don't want broadband only customers.

I'll feed it back, though I think the likelihood of acquiring rights to these channels are slim due to the exclusivity of it being a major selling point for another provider that I can think of.

hardly exclusive when you can already get both Sky cinema and sky sports on a non-sky platform.

Exclusive was probably the wrong term to be fair. It's not easy to acquire those channels though.

Clearly this is down to BT meddling in the affairs of plusnet....

PlusNet are a subsidiary of BT, and have lower margins and higher costs....  PlusNet have support and enginers in the UK, whilst BT sold their souls to cheap indian labour years ago....

 

BT are clearly forcing plusnet to offer an inferior product, so people don't switch from BT to plusnet, they want to keep their margins higher...

If all has gone to plan, over 80% of calls to BT Customer Services are supposed to be routed to UK call centres by the end of 2016.
