Re: Goodbye Virgin Hello Sky

What's the betting the OP will be on a Sky forum in 12 months time gripeing about how much Sky have put their prices up.

Swings & Roundabouts.

Highly likely l suspect and customers have to remember that Skys price rises will sooner rather then later and don't be surprised if their prices rise more then Virgins.

I bet if Sky raise their prices in September, those of us on Sky Premium channels will be facing yet another price rise.
