Cancelled mine about a week ago.  They've called me about 15 times since.  I haven't answered.  The next time they call I'm going to say "Yes, I'll come back if you give me an upgrade to Sky Q multiroom, sports, cinema and Sky+ and free installation for £55 a month for 18 months."
No dice but no biggie.  I'll sign up as a new customer next year. At least they've stopped calling me now!  ;D

I have been with SKY for years and have HD + boxes, apparently they are offering me under VIP an upgrade to SKY Q with just the installation costs.
But don't you really need a 4K TV to get the real benefit? I have 2 good large screen TVs but they are just 1080HD one's.
Though they are perfectly good HD pictures.

The other thing is I have quite a few movies downloaded onto my current boxes with several of the movies now not free to download again.
Several are now at least £7.99 , that's one think that annoys me with SKY for the monthly charge you should be able to download any movie you want without paying extra for it.
Wherever my boy is that's where I want to be.

I ran Sky Q on a Sony 1080P TV for a good 12-18 months before I got a 4K TV. In my opinion the Q boxes are a lot better. They're smaller and the software is much better than on the Sky+HD boxes. If you've got Sky Broadband they also act as a WiFi extender (although I've personally disabled this).

You don't need a 4K TV no, but if you are planning on getting it in the future make sure you get the 2TB box cos they don't do it on the other one.

UHD costs extra on sky, and it's only available on certain channels through a sort of red button type selection. You can download in UHD but not record for example. The content is improving all the time and there's quite a lot of movies, big file sizes though, like 15gb for a film.

A friend at work has just allowed me to sign in to his account to watch Netflix. When I have tried to go in on my TV, it keeps coming up with me needing a Sky Plan. Has anyone else had a similar problem? Is there anyway I can use Netflix without needing one?

You don’t need a sky plan to watch Netflix ....
