Kapag ba nagpaputol ng subscription tapos isoli sa Sky ang digibox, may refund bang ibibigay?

My HD digibox had a software upgrade today. Totally new UI. Nice touch. I like that programming your favorites will show only those channels when using the up-down button. And parang lumakas signal strength.

Alam ko they have a lock-in period. Maybe 1 year. Pretermination rates apply once you decide to terminate your line. Pwede mo rin siguro palipat, may fee rin siguro but subject to availability sa area.

I've asked the same question sa CS ng sky some months ago..

May lock in period na 1 year. If wala pa 1 year and gusto mo pa-terminate, may 3,000 fee.

Now kung gusto mo lang palipat, bayad ka pa din ng 2,000.

@usbslave thanks for the tip! daya naman ng skycable... dapat palitan nila ng ibang HD channel yung sa ating CNN HD. tsaka gusto ko pa naman ang jeepney tv.
Update lang po. Our house in sucat is under renovation so we decided to look for another place.
We found one in multinational. Good thing current sky subscriber yung owner kaya ginamit ko yung existing HD Box ko and scan all channel.
Yehey, nagkaron na ng Jeepney TV at CNN HD.
So yung sucat area talaga ang may problem not our HD Box.
Try ko ireport sa Sky.
