    Reports: No Sky Price increase for "6 mix" channels this year

    According to reports Sky Tv subscription prices are to be frozen until August 2012.

    The new channel packages are still going ahead but those who are on a 3 to 5 mix package will automatically get the new Entertainment Plus mix at no extra cost.

    see http://www.satandpcguy.com/forum/sho...September-2011

    On 1 September we’ll automatically move all existing customers on to one of the new packs: Entertainment or
    Entertainment Plus, at no extra cost.

    We’ll make sure they keep the channels they have already and many customers will get even more channels – for
    the same amount as they’re currently paying.

    It has been confirmed that Sky TV will be freezing their subscription prices until the 31st August 2012, for customers who join prior to 31st August 2011.

    It has also been confirmed that Sky TV will be changing thier channel structure.

    Gone are the 6 genre mixes of Variety, Knowledge, Lifestyle, Music, Childrens and News and Events.

    In comes Entertainment and Entertainment Extra.

    From initial channel lists, it looks like the current Variety and Lifestyle genres will be in the Entertainment pack. This pack will cost £20.

    The other four genres, Music, News and Events, Knowledge and Childrens, wil be included in the Entertainment Extra mix. The cost of Entertainment and Entertainment Extra per month will be £25.

    However, you will not lose channels with this shuffle around. In fact, Sky TV says that you will still receive all the channels you currently receive now. And some clients will receive more channels, yet, pay the same subscription as they currently do.

    So, if my understanding is correct, if you currently have two genres, for example the Variety and Childrens, and currently pay £20.50, then from 1st September, you will still pay £20.50, but will have access to all channel in the Entertainment pack, and all channels in the Entertainment Extra pack. But you will see your price increase in 1st September 2012 to £25 (or more if they increase it!).

    All new Sky TV customers signing up after 31st August 2011 will pay either £20 or £25 per month.

    So for 1 year you can be paying the same price as you are currently, but then in 1 years time your price may well increase.

    The Sky Sports and Sky Movie channel prices have also been frozen for 1 year. So in addition to your "Genre" or Entertainment mix price, these prices will be applied for the premium Sky TV channels.

    Single Movie Pack: £8.00
    Both Movie Packs: £16.00
    Single Sports PAck: £12.50
    Both Sports Packs: £20.00
    Single Movies and Single Sport Pack: £18.75
    Both Movies and Single Sports Pack: £24.00
    Both Sports and Single Movies Pack: £24.00
    Both Sports and Both Movies Pack: £28.00
