Sky Sports Pricing

On our wavelength


Virgin's website is a minefield of misleading and sneaky "great offers" kind of sales pitches where I have to give personal details (including my postcode) before getting any real answers. Also, some undeserving sales person might receive a nice bonus despite the fact that I'm already interested.

So, here are my questions:

How much extra does Sky Sports cost per month (before and after the sign up incentive period)?

Can I only subscribe to Sky Sports Football channels without paying extra for sports I'm not interested in (golf, formula one, etc.)?

Thanks in advance.

As indicated by Joseph_B you should chat to the regrades agents over the phone, or  you can chat to them using whatsapp (0730 532 7112)

Due to the wholesale agreement between VM and Sky, VM aren't able to split the Sky Sports channels so you only pay for and receive the Football channels. You have to take the full Sky Sports package.

I see from your previous posts that you have broadband with VM and a Tivo box. 

It's normally an additional £38.75 for the Sky Sports channels in HD (£31.75 in SD). You also have the option of taking the feed in UHD  for an additional £7 or £10 per month but UHD is only available on the V6 and TV360 boxes.

Do you use the recording facility on the tivo box? If not it might be worthwhile looking at switching to the /stream box This is provided by IPTV (over the internet) and doesn't have a hard drive so there's no recording facility, but there's a Sky Sports offer of £18.75 per month for the channels including the HD version.

Sky will only wholesale the channels as "all or nothing" so you cannot cherry pick which ones you want.

HD carries an additional supplemental charge, as does UHD.

Prices are dependent on your current package, as different packages attract different discounts. The minimum subscription length is 30 days, although this again may vary with your current package.
