Like many of us whom visit this forum and subscribe for the full package of Sky......how many of us can say ''Yes the film was on... i tuned into it....but the picture kept locking up!''.......(maybe a little cloud floated past in the sky to block the signal!....or some kids stray balloon from a birthday party!)......The point i am making we have all been there and worn the 'T' shirt!.......Well last night i looked forward to watching my beloved Chelsea play at Stamford bridge and to be transmitted on Sky Sports 2 only to find (yes you know don't you?) the poxy picture was freezin up left right and centre!.....determined not to be beaten i remembered a link that either Channel Hopper or Rolfw advised me to look at: L.J's links.....so bootin the pc i frantically searched the listings....there it was ......Sirius .... Viasatsport.......so switchin on me reciever (Phew!..relief!) found it no time the picture was great (apart from the fact i couldnt understand the commentry)....as the game unfolded i started to really get hump....i thought i'm payin £38.00 a month for something a can't watch...Grrrrrrrr.....so pickin up the phone to have yet another grunt at the Scottish Sky team!......only this time on the phone menu i selected 'No picture menu!'.......i explained my problem in a sober voice to the tech man....and yes (yawn) went through the rigmoral of pullin the card out and wipin it etc!.......to the point my patience had now run out like a light bulb being switched off!.......i then informed this patronising son of bitch he could now stuff my subscription where it would make his eye's water.......To my surprise he then added i was a valued customer!!!....he offered to appoint me an engineer to fix my problem!!...with a cost of around £70.00......naturally i replied ......''Your takin the P**S !''.........''Stuff it!''....this gentle Scotsman with the polite voice of a saint adviised me to cancel my subscription.....''Huhhh!.. Why's that then?'' i asked ''Because we will send an engineer round for FREE!!, if you threaten to cancel!'' he replied......So i did... and they are a commin.......my wife asked ''Why bother your gonna cancel it anyway!''....''Yes i know'' i replied.....''But i don't want my free to air channels lockin up do i!"......So for those of you who have had all the crap from Sky.... just say i want to cancel......and that way you get the engineer round for FREE!!..........waverider

LOL, that's obviously the way to do it Waverider, many people have achieved similar results with a threat to cancel. :)
