To OP: Can't you learn to seperate your mind and inner beliefs into whats right, whats fai,r and whats the decent thing to do, compartments. You entered into an contract so stick with it and do watch Sky, you get many hours each day of some wonderful entertainment espeically films. Why not ask your son to pay the bill, but having said this its highly unususal for a son to ask his mum for Sky to be installed before he comes home?[rather curious indeed] As for Sky, to me its unfair to insist all new subscribers must enter into an 12 month contract, 6 months might be better, so check out the post above on cancellation rights. My beef is with Virgin TV, my complaint is "if you change your package/s, add or delete something they automatically sign you up to an new 12 month contract, we were with them for some 5+ years and in the end left, to long to explain here, but they do charge £5-00 PER MONTH for no direct debit, and if there payments agents are slow transferring your bill money to them they ignore the actual date of payment and use the date of its receipt. If a weekend work break interevenes they can and do put £10-00 on your bill "for late payment". Getting it back is so much of an hassle that we left them.

Your son said he'd pay for it, you ordered it on his behalf - it is a payment that he must make to you. It was his actions that resulted in your additional expense, if he doesn't offer to meet your additional payments to Sky, you've learned a valuable lesson for the future should a similar situation occur.

As it turned out the sky engineer was unable to fit Hd because my tv is on the wall and he wouldnt go near it.

He phoned sky instalition teamm and told them he would not be carrying out the install.. My son paid for all the stations for the month and he can wait till he has hiis own place if he wants all singing and dancing sky :)
