Hi,

 

I pay £160 a month for 5 SKY boxes, all HD and fully loaded with packages. I consider myself to be a decent customer.

 

3 months ago we had a period of bad weather and 3 of my boxes lost signal. I suspect it's to do with the connection on the dish as my other boxes get a signal fine.

 

They want £60 engineer fee per box to climb a ladder and re-connect.

 

Granted I can get a local guy to do it but as I pay nearly £2k a year for SKY you would think they'd like to keep me happy.

 

Are there any tactics that I can use to talk them into doing it for free? (or at least at a discount)

 

Cheers.

Absolutely!. Although this will be influenced by when you are in contract until.

 

If you feel there is an inherent fault on Sky's dish, then it should be covered under warranty.

If you feel it is more likely the dish has moved alignment in the bad weather, or there is a poor physical connection : you are unlikely to be able to persuade Sky it is their responsibility to provide a repair free of charge.

 

If you cant get them to budge, there is always e.g. Virgin when renewal time comes around!.

Id be tempted to say that they installed it incorrectly, it shouldn't have come loose in bad weather. Although actually I'd just save the bother and get the ladder out myself.
