Hello omarepps,

 

We have introduced our new Sky Talk package, Anytime which costs £5.00 a month. This allows you to call 0845 and 0870 numbers, which are inclusive for the first 60 minutes. 6.63p per minute thereafter, 

or you can hang up and redial. If you currently have Sky Talk Weekends at £0.00 a month, then you can upgrade through MySky.
 

If this information has helped answer your question, then please click  Answered as this may help other customers with a similar question. However if it doesn't answer your question then can I ask that you post your query onto our dedicated Sky Talk Technical board in our Help Forum and a member of our community can help you further. 

 

Thanks,

Hi annemcwilliams

 

Thanks for getting in touch on the Sky Help Forum with regards to call costs.

 

The main question you have asked is regarding calls to 0870 number of which I would like to clear up the answer. The cost of calls to these numbers would all depend on what Sky Talk package you subscribe to. You can check this by logging into your My Sky account. If you subscribe to the Sky Talk Anytime UK or Sky Talk Anytime International package then calls to 0870 and 0845 will be free of charge for up to 1 hour 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, if you subscribe to the Sky Talk Weekends package then calls to 0845 will be chargeable regardless of when called and  calls to 0870 numbers will be free for up to 1 hour at the weekend only.

 

I hope this has answered your question. If not, just give me a shout. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

 

Cheers,

You may wish to further edit this reply Jason as it proved confusing for me. I have the Anytime (not followed by UK or International) package, even though I only joined sky from O2 last month, and I do not have 0845 numbers included in my package.

Hi Lainys

I pay £5 a month plus line rental. As I said in my earlier post my package is Sky Talk Anytime, not followed by UK or International, so none of the 3 detailed in your post give the correct information for me.  

I have now discovered it is an old (discontinued) package, even though I only transferred to Sky from O2 last month. It is confusing for me as, being new to Sky, I do not know the finer details of my package and I thought that this forum would have given me the correct information.

Regards

Hello again Wintermum,

 

As you are paying £5 per month along with line rental then it will be the Anytime UK package you are on however, as you are a little concerned I am going to get one of our escalations guys to contact you by private message to collect some details from you which will allow us to access your Sky Account and double check for you.

 

The guys will contact you asap.

 

Please come back and let me know how you get on :smileyhappy:

 

Kind Regards

Hi Lainy

You asked me to let you know how I got on - well so far I haven't. I received an email yesterday with a link to Live Chat which I used but after waiting for 30 minutes with no reply I was not prepared to wait any longer. I replied to the email thus and was sent another link today to Live Chat when I was kept waiting for 20 minutes without reply so I gave up! I have informed the escalations team and hopefully they can suggest an alternative means of communication.

Regards

Wintermum

Re: is 0845 and 0870 numbers free on sky talk

Hi Lainy

I have at long last received confirmation that calls to 0845 numbers on my package, Sky Talk Anytime, are NOT included. This means that the earlier post on this thread from Jason D to omarepps on 18/8/13, amended by Jason H on 7/1/14, is incorrect.

Regards

Wintermum
