Sky television has taken Ireland by storm since its launch back in the 1990's. Having a satellite hanging from the side of your house or the chimney somehow made you instantly cooler amongst the kids on the road. Now it just makes you known to be the household that has access to a gargantuan array of TV channels! With a choice of four TV, Broadband and Talk bundles you may need to head over to see what discount voucher codes are available to help you make your decision. Each bundle provides you with the basic Sky channels, such as Sky1, Sky Living, Sky Atlantic, and all the other favourite Irish and UK channels, BBC's, UTV, Channel4 and so on. They also provide hundreds, actually hundreds of free to air channels. You'll get unlimited Broadband (unless you choose The Original Bundle – that's a 2gb monthly allowance), evening and weekend calls to lines within the Republic of Ireland, and also enjoy Sky anywhere with Sky Go! Each bundle then offers something unique, depending on its type. You can have your pick of movie and sports bundles all with varying deals to suit you! You can also get your hands on a free digi box amongst other great Sky Ireland Promotions, allowing you to pause, rewind and record live TV... the future is here and it's pausing live TELE!!

How Can I Add-on Sky Channels?
If you’re a film buff then Sky Movies is definitely something to get your hands on whether you’re an existing customer or newbie. With any bundle it can start from €28 a month or even less depending on current offers. Remember to check our page first, and I would advise, don't sign up unless you have found an offer. The same goes for Sky Sports fans, when you sign up for Sky Sports (which starts at €17) make sure you have researched any existing customer or new customer deals. You can watch all the Premiership football matches and of course any GAA games.
Extra channels (that very rarely have a live discount) include Sky Sports F1, LiverpoolFC TV (€9) ManchesterUnited TV (€8), Chelsea TV (€8) & Sky Asia (€20)

Setup and Installation costs?
Most new bundles will come with free installation when purchasing online. Installation costs will depends on whether you have a standard or non-standard installation. Unfortunately a non-standard installation (e.g mainly effects those who live in flats) can be an extra cost.
You will have to set up a direct debit for your monthly subscriptions and these can be viewed online or from your TV with your Sky interactive remote! So you can keep an eye on your account at all times. For payments Sky accepts credit and debit cards from Mastercard and Visa only. Sorry but American Express, Solo or Maeastro cards are out!
Cancelling Sky Subscriptions
Sign into your account online and go to the subscriptions tab. Under Auto renew click the off button. This will stop any future payments and services for that subscription. If you wish to cancel your Sky package altogether then you do need to call Sky and arrange over the phone on 0818 719 819. If you terminate before your contract is up then there will be a charge. However if you cancel within the first 14 days of your Sky service being active, then you don’t need to speak to anyone and all should be well. Do talk to them first before you cancel direct debits. Don’t think “sure be grand!” as unpaid charges will leave your account in debt and cause more issues for you.
Sky need at least 2 weeks’ notice if you intend to move home and get set up at your new address, however you can book up to 90 days prior. Depending on if your new instalment is standard or non-standard will depend on the payment required for an engineer to come out. See Sky for an example on what can be expected when moving home. You will be told of installation costs when you book this home move online or call 0818 719 893.
