@Caher Thanks for posting, Sky Sports Main Event has a one month minimum term on a 30 day rolling contract.  So to cancel you need to give 30 days’ notice if you're removing it. It would then be ceased at the end of those 30 days.

Watch out as BT have a habit of removing it the day you ask for it to be removed and then charging you up to the 30 day notice period. A browse of the forum will show this happens fairly often.

Yes thanks, this is why I asked this happened to me too some time ago. I was told that if I need it for 1 month I should call then the next day cancel and it would run its course for a month but they took my money and I had no sky!

So to be clear: if I want to watch the rugby Internationals for June I order sky now and cancel Monday and the 30 days will run to the end of the 30-day period?

As soon as you cance it’ll go off(most likely!) and you’ll pay for 30 days. If you only want to watch one day it’ll be much cheaper to buy a nowtv sports pass and watch on one of their devices. You can get the box and a months sport for less than BT charge for one months sport.

I suspect you would when cancelling need to specify the date presumably 30 days hence that you want the bolton removed otherwise a simple cancel instruction could result in the removal of the  bolt on being actioned straightaway.

I'm guessing that if you make it clear to them from the start that you want to give 30 days notice, as opposed to telling them that you want to cancel, then you should be OK. Just to be on the safe side you could ask them to confirm your instructions by email so that you have it in writing.

It can be added for any multiple period of months. So yeah, you can add it for a single month. The Sports pack will cost some dollars extra per month but as stated above just remember to cancel it the following day or even later in the same day as you add it. Even if you dont you will only be charged for the number of days (beyond the min. 31 days) that you use it.

If you do happen to get an offer on it (ask for it anyhow) just remember to give 31 days notice of cancelling otherwise the cost reverts to the full monthly cost again.

Did this a while ago and rang to cancel the next day, as has been said they cancelled the lot and had to ring in a few times to get it reinstated. Also bear in mind that if you record any programs they can only be watched whilst you still have the pack active.
