Free On Demand Connector

I recently received a letter about how I was eligible for the free connector so I followed the link in the letter and I keep getting the same message saying I am unable to register for it but I have never used on demand?

Re: Free On Demand Connector

you can get if you have never connected to on demand. Have you connected before to on demand? The idea was to get customers who never connected a change to connect for free.

Re: Free On Demand Connector

Hi alirossy,

 

You can connect your Sky Box to your router directly via an ethernet cable.  If you have done this, then you will not be able to order a free On Demand connector.

 

Kind regards,

Re: Free On Demand Connector

I can't connect by a Ethernet cable as my tv is in one room and the internet box is in the bedroom with a 2foot wall between them. I was sick of telling the salesman this but he would insist that I couldn't have a free box as I'd already connect to demand.

Re: Free On Demand Connector

l know it is annoying and frustrating when you Can't get your message across. You could move you router to the TV? or is this not possible? If they wont give it to you for free, sorry but might have buy one. More annoying when you could have it free. Hind you sky know it you have connected to on demand, so get back on the phone!

Re: Free On Demand Connector

Hey Colette+Kildunne and duchessdonna,

 

Thanks for getting in touch.

 

I can see how keen you are to be able to claim a free wireless On Demand connector but when doing so you have been unsuccessful. To be able to order one you need to meet certain criteria, the first one is that you must never have connected your Sky Box to your router using a wired(ethernet cable) connection, if you have done this (even for a few minutes) you would not be able to claim our On Demand connector. The second one is that you must have a compatible Sky+HD box in order to gain access to the On Demand content. If you do not meet this criteria you would not be entitled to our free wireless connector unfortunately.

 

I am sorry I could not be of more help, please let me know if you have anymore questions.

 

Regards

Liam

Re: Free On Demand Connector

Second Sky HD Box has never been connected to On Demand due to distance from router.

 

Our first box has been connected to On Demand but your terms state "if the box has never been connected".

 

So on that term, the box should qualify for a free connector!

 

No offence to Sky, but how many customers are getting fed up with the amount of freebies you give to new customers whilst your existing ones get increased bills rather than a great promotion or a freebie!
