Yep. What's up?

Had an 18 month deal for the original bundle for £9 per month. They put it up to something like £24 because my 18 month deal came to an end, saying that the original bundle has been made obsolete and the next best they can do is the entertainment package at £15 per month.

The extra channels they tried to market to me (Eurosport, music, documentary) are of no interest to us and we would have liked to keep the deal we had but they're obviously saying no can do.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Hmm, I work in the IT side of technology rather than the sale stuff sadly.
I've had a look at the current friends and family offer but it's far from the best it's ever been, Entertainment, Kids, HD, Box Sets and films for £40/month.

Did you speak to just customer services? Or the actual cancellations department that they put you through to? The first people you speak to usually aren't cancellations, normally they put you through to cancellations who have access to better deals.

My mum just finished 2 and a half years of the all channels (except sports and movies) plus Box Sets for literally free (she got a 12 month free for friends and family and then randomly got an email saying it was being extended for 18 months), then they tried to put her up to £39.50/month. The initial customer services took a whopping £1/month off, then cancellations got it down to £23/month.

If you have bt broadband, give bt TV a look. It's freeview via an Ariel and then a bunch of streamed stuff added on like comedy Central, good food etc. And a heap of kids stuff and sports.

I'm well impressed with it.

I noticed yesterday on the MySky app that Sky had automatically kept my discounted price. It was due to expire next month but it’s now saying £9.10 instead of £22. I dumped my Sky+ box a few months ago though and simply use SkyGo on the PS4, which on the whole is excellent. Picture quality is better than NowTV, and I also keep the all important Sky Sports Mix.

Thanks, I'll speak to cancellations tomorrow then.

I like the Adventure Time comic. However, in WH Smith at Bluewater they now stock it behind the counter... I had to ask for a copy as if I was purchasing something of a suspect nature :shifty: .

Would be less embarrassing to ask for a porno mag.

The assistant was kinda okay because I had my ten-year old nephew with me.

But he was embarrassed about me buying it :( .

Adventure Time is one of those things that makes me feel old. I know it exists and is apparently a massive thing, but I am basically completely oblivious as to any real knowledge of it - what it looks like, what it's about, who it's aimed at, how long it has been around etc. I didn't even know it was a comic.

I'm slowly slipping away from the zeitgeist and becoming increasingly isolated in my own narrow frame of cultural references from 20 years ago... :cry:

It does have it's bonuses, it's just the slow realisation that you are becoming one of the out of touch old people. The sort of person that when you are young you can comprehend how they even exist: "how do these old people not manage to maintain an awareness of all things new? Come on Grandpa!" :P

It's one of the reasons why, whilst I certainly don't want to die young, I find it scary to think about how old people might be surviving until in the future - how can you possibly maintain an awareness and understanding of the world around you if you've lived for 120+ years, especially as the rate of change only seems to be getting quicker!

It definitely has it's moments but at the same time, I also feel like something about it is just... disgusting. Like some scenes are pretty horrific, like Count Lemongrad eating his brother or whatever he was. :dread:

Although I like Adventure Time, I haven't really seen that much of the TV series as I only have Freeview. What I have seen is on DVD and the UK has been very poorly served in that department; only series 1, 2 and 3 have gained releases here (and, even then, not the complete series as some episodes were not included).

It *is* quite weird, though... and I love it :toot: .
