Thanks Sky TV have more of my money

I was ripped off

Moving house is a pain in the arse, but that isn’t what has really got me going. See, moving isn’t difficult, a little bit of preparation, throw the stuff into a van, unload, then plug in the kettle. Simple.

It’s the other stuff which I have no control over, like the broadband connection and Sky TV. This leads me to what has really pissed me off, the way the one of the biggest media companies has procedures in place to rip the customer off, because if you want to watch the English premier league you have just got to bend over and suck that big Sky cock.

So, prior to the move we speak to sky and say we are moving, they said ok “when you move take the box with you and if the new flat has a dish, just plug it in”. I ask if the new flat has a dish and they said they don’t know. This is rubbish, surely they have records that say what houses are customers or have had a dish fitted. So we would have to wait until we moved then phone up if it didn’t have a dish.

Trying to be proactive about this matter we went and scouted around the new property, looking on the walls outside of the flat, we couldn’t see any wires from any dishes. We asked the agent and they didn’t know either. So, we wouldn’t know until the day of the move. Things weren’t looking good, West Ham were on TV, and we didn’t know if we could connect to a service we were paying for.

The day of the move we find out that there are dishes on the walls of all the flats around us, but not ours. GUTTED. We phone Sky and they say we could arrange one to be fitted which would be in two weeks time. TWO WEEKS TIME!! WTF!!! Paying for a service which we can’t use until they fit a dish…. which was going to cost us £50! ARRRGHH!!

Yes this really annoyed me, as Sky were useless, but we couldn’t complain about this too much. We’d have to take it on the chin as there was no dish and we needed one.

I book a day off work and the engineer arrives, and within a minute he says “Yeah this building has a communal dish”, plugs the dish in and then says thanks and walks out. HOLD FUCKING TIGHT, the flat was being supplied the service, but I have been enticed to pay £50 for a dish fitting when a dish was already fitted! WTF!!! You could argue that is difficult to know exactly where all the sky dishes are fitted in the UK, but you can’t say that they don’t know where the communal dishes are. ARSEHOLES.

Thanks SKY you are cunts.
