I think I have a compromise.

It's been mulling over in my mind for ages now and the £5 hike imminent for BTSport has added impetus to my decision.
It's not that I can't afford it but I think the cost of BB & Phone with PN and TV with Sky inc sport but no movies is astronomically high. (makes the BBC licence seem like a bargain) I have therefore been looking around for the best options.
1st option was to go the whole hog and move to BT TV, BB & Phone. but I'd lose the sport from sky except two SD channels. But it's a whole lot cheaper.
2nd option was to move BB & Phone to Sky but the price after re-enrolling with BT Sport is pretty similar to current option.
3rd option Status Quo.... untenable!
However, there is a fourth option and it's been staring me in the face all along.
Stay with my sky package and move my BB & Phone to BT and take up the BT Sport offer. Okay, it's not massively cheaper but a saving nevertheless in the region of £20pcm. Add to that the fact I can watch online/iphone/ipad too which we can't with PN's BT Sport.
Thoughts anyone?

Re: I think I have a compromise.

Hi Word Warrior, There are some good cashback deals with BT at the moment ( due to end soon )

Sky also have some good deals for existing customers

You could ring Sky ( assuming your out of contract with them ) tell them your thinking about leaving, unless they can offer you something really good, and in return  you bring your phone and bb to them.
I know a few sky customers who have got 50/75% of their package for a number of years with half price line rental and free bb
Regards

Ha!
First hoop/hurdle encountered. You cannot move broadband and Phone to BT (from plusnet) without cancelling BT Sport on plusnet first  Roll eyes
Cancellation initiated. Anyone know how long it takes before it kicks in? You'd have thought that they were different companies  Crazy
