If online booking isn't working then you'll need to call, but be aware that you're looking at a minimum two weeks lead time (and potentially longer for FTTP)

 

A Home Move really needs to be booked at least three weeks before the moving date.

I have been having trouble booking an appointment with Sky only found out that I had my new house last Tuesday so how can one book an appointment if I didn't know I was moving, I would have booked an appointment 3 weeks before if I knew I was moving 3 weeks before I got my new house, Sky should be there for their customers no matter what, not leaving them frustrated, they should be able to respond to their customers and let them know when they are going to sort this out, I only knew 1 week ago that I had a new house

The minimum 14 days notice is an Openreach stipulation regardless of which isp you go with using their infrastructure.

I'm afraid that's not how the national Openreach network functions: no ISP can arrange a move on that system without the minimum lead time.

 

Openreach themselves say:

 

One reason for this is to stop “slamming” – when a company takes over someone’s services without their permission. There’s a minimum lead time of ten working days for jobs like this, which is enough time for the old and new providers to write to the end customer to confirm the switch. It also means there’s enough time for someone to cancel the change if they didn’t consent to it, or if they change their mind.

 

Who sets the lead times?

 

The rules for switching services have been set by Ofcom, after public consultation. They’re there to try to stop consumers being harmed. We also set lead times for installing our services and measure our performance against those lead times.

I didn't know that,  one thing these companies do not tell you, but again the customer doesn't think about asking at the time of  installation, I canny find the telephone no either to call Sky, they don't make it easy for customers

If you definitely need to call Sky you can call free by dialling 150 from a Sky Talk landline or a Sky Mobile, otherwise you can use:
https://www.sky.com/help/home
UK customers: Scroll down and click on ‘Need more help’ and it provides a 0333 number.
ROI customers: change the flag in the bottom right corner of the link to the ROI flag then scroll down and click on ‘Need more help’ and it provides a 0818 number.
(The forum doesn’t allow us to type the numbers in full).

You will find that similar to calling other large companies the start will be automated which may also try to send you here to the forum. Stay on the line as long as possible and don’t hang up.
