End of contract or TV loan? What have you been offered?

Hello

 

Apologies to sound somewhat nosey but I've noticed my packs "deals" expire in May, but my Glass TV "loan" ends in October..

Will I have to be tied in to avoid a huge increase or has anyone been offered anything lucrative in a similar situation?

Just an indication would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thankyou

Hi @Red+Silence 

 

The loan is largely irrelevant as it was interest free, some people purchased it outright etc so don't see Sky making any offers because that has finished.

 

Back in the summer in was looking to cut costs, retentions did me a good deal moving from 31 day rolling contract to 18th months, can't remember exactly the saving but circa £35 per moth.

Thanks

 

I was wondering because the TV deal I'm on expires 5 months before I've paid off the telly so thinking what happens to me in that interim period.

So the loan repayment for the TV itself and your TV subscription are completely separate. The fact you will still have a few months left of the credit agreement won't factor into any renewal price that Sky would offer for the TV subscription.

 

Should you decide to not renew your Tv subscription and end up cancelling obviously you would still have to pay the last few months of the loan repayment for the TV.

I'm contemplating a larger Glass TV..

But I have concerns over whether the current one would be recycled, traded in, or a bit of a brick. I guess it could go in my girls room if I put their fire stick in it.

But then I'm convinced they're working on an improved TV from what I've heard on the grapevine, 

Decisions decisions..

There has certainly be rumours for a while of new glass hardware. Perhaps Sky will be willing to give the TVs one last attempt with a refresh.

 

The problem with the TVs is that really to keep them relevant in the current market they need to be releasing a new model at least on an annual basis, if they can't do that I don't see how the Glass line can end up being truly successful, especially since they launched the stream as its own service.

It's yours to do with as you see fit.  Sky will accept it back for recycling but won't offer you anything for it: the supposed trade-in scheme described during the launch event has never arrived.  Realistically the sets have a limited potential second hand value because they can only be sold as 'buyer collects'.

I finally managed to sell my 18 month old 55 inch Glass TV but I had to drop the price to £250 before it sold.  The purchaser actually didn't want it to watch Sky he was going to use the freeview function and attach a Firestick..
