    Bit of rain outside and the bloody sky stops working... didn’t want to watch the cricket anyway @SkyHelpTeam Absolutely sick of the service issues

  • TexanBritMel Melinda Kaye Woodhouse (@TexanBritMel) reported from Birmingham, England

    @ShaunGibson19 @Leena21S @SkyUK @SkyHelpTeam Cancelling ours was one of the best things we’ve done. We get the sports app for £10.99 a month and never really watched anything else on Sky anyway.

  • jatinderpaul_IM Jatinder Paul (@jatinderpaul_IM) reported from Solihull, England

    @SkyHelpTeam absolutely exasperated - almost 2 weeks without TV due to unknown issue with main SkyQ box. Called x 4. Told would have engineer 14,15 or16 June - nothing - no courtesy call, no TV and 5 yr old daughter who wants to watch but cant @cartoonnetwork - txs for nothing

  • harryharrad HH (@harryharrad) reported from Birmingham, England

    @SkyUK why is #skymobile signal so rubbish at weekends, you give free data and then the service levels drop! #poorservice won't be renewing with you next year! @O2 that's goes for you too! #rubbish!

  • StefanMCampbell Stefan (@StefanMCampbell) reported from Wednesfield, England

    @SkyHelpTeam currently on the line with the most rude and incompetent help desk advisor i have ever come across at any company Genuine issue with a renewal two weeks ago not being processed. Advisor not helping. Wont give his name or pass me to a mgr. He has now put me on hold!

  • RobertClement23 Robbie (@RobertClement23) reported from Redditch, England

    Just checked out @SkyCinemaUK movie releases for June! C’mon @SkyUK, what an incredibly sad list of films! #SkyTV #SkyCinema #NotValueForMoney #Booooo #Crap #OneJob

  • andyjones_1981 Andy Williams-Jones (@andyjones_1981) reported from Birmingham, England

    @imfrom1984 @MatchroomBoxing @SkySports @DAZN_USA @anthonyfjoshua @Andy_destroyer1 @EddieHearn Only way to send a message is to turn our backs on shit fights no one wants.

  • jackoregan1 jack o'regan (@jackoregan1) reported from Willenhall, England

    @SkyHelpTeam Is Walsall area down also mines been off since 11 this morning

  • Leedavidvarley 📸Lee David Varley 🇬🇧 (@Leedavidvarley) reported from Birmingham, England

    So care to explain yourselves @SkyUK @SkyHelpTeam as we always pay our sky bills, we shouldn't be need to be cut off like that, what a way to lose your customs if that is how you treat them.

  • Leedavidvarley 📸Lee David Varley 🇬🇧 (@Leedavidvarley) reported from Birmingham, England

    @SkyUK @SkyHelpTeam so about 20mins later after the call, our sky gets cut off, and about 20 mins ago, again my dad had answered another call from openreach and straight after putting the phone down our sky gets cut off. This is ridiculous, as we do pay the bills with you guys.

  • Leedavidvarley 📸Lee David Varley 🇬🇧 (@Leedavidvarley) reported from Birmingham, England

    @SkyUK Are you in partnership with Openreach as I have a resolving issue on a matter, about an hour ago I had received a phone call from someone claiming they were from openreach, regarding my Internet connection, I told them I wasn't with openreach so put the phone down [Cont]

  • S_R51LLY Stuart Reilly (@S_R51LLY) reported from Wombourne, England

    @SkyUK @SkyHelpTeam would like to know why sky retention team have lied to get me to renew my contract by saying my new deal is exact same package but they have removed items to bring the cost down!!!

  • PaulOBoulton Paul (@PaulOBoulton) reported from Lickey End, England

    How people don’t like @LewisHamilton is beyond me, he’s the very best at what he does and then has time to be a lovely guy, he’s made that young lad Harry’s day during the worst possible time for him and his family #lewishamilton #F1 #SkySports

  • S_R51LLY Stuart Reilly (@S_R51LLY) reported from Wednesfield, England

    @SkyHelpTeam @SkyUK why do you call 4 times a day and send emails saying exclusive offer to me. Which is more than I pay now after I told you I want to cancel

  • kwn_photouk Karl W Newton Photography (@kwn_photouk) reported from Birmingham, England

    @SkyHelpTeam sky internet not working in Moseley birmingham

  • njwoodward Neil Woodward (@njwoodward) reported from Dudley, England

    @SkySports Don, the good news is that they may have the red card overturned, the bad news is they may lose more when the footage properly analysed. #AVFC #shithousery

  • ZakriaCaan Z-Pac (@ZakriaCaan) reported from Birmingham, England

    You know took it off #GaryNeville rubbing it in for a decade when he played. Now I have to take it from him as a pundit on @skysports Next season i'm watching via another provider. You guys carry on. With 1 less customer. Obviously hating #LFC is more important than revenue.

  • swampmonster74 Jason Murray (@swampmonster74) reported from Beoley, England

    @jason_lfc79 @SkySportsPL @SkySports @ManUtd @Everton @LFC @Carra23 @GNev2 @ManCity Valid, gotta treat people how you'd have them treat you! FA and judicial system was weak! Spittings disgusting though . . .

  • dlevick Dave Levick (@dlevick) reported from Birmingham, England

    @SkyUK what's the point of paying for @SkySportsF1 when they are all shown in Sky One 😂. I only watch the races so I think I'll cancel that subscription, not proving worth the extra

  • RossHolmes27 Ross Holmes (@RossHolmes27) reported from Birmingham, England

    Shocking service from @SkyUK will be cancelling my contract 1st thing in the morning! 😡 luckily we have the internet for me to watch @TheMasters

  • stevedaisyalfie Steven Lander (@stevedaisyalfie) reported from Solihull, England

    @SkySports you’ve had all week to go over the course, the contenders and the build up. Stop cutting away from the golf to show us stuff we don’t want to see. If I tune one to sky sports golf, it’s because I want to watch golf, not someone I don’t give a damn talk about it!!

  • GeorgieMaley Georgie Colley (@GeorgieMaley) reported from Kidderminster, England

    Why can’t media providers just get into the 21st century and make it easier for households, by having contracts based on a joint accounts. That way, both home owners can call up about any problems! Data protection my arse @virginmedia @SkyUK

  • Liam_C_123 Liam (@Liam_C_123) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    @SkySports still feel the need to apologise for bad language heard when it’s after 9pm

  • robsharred Robert Sharred (@robsharred) reported from Solihull, England

    Stop apologising for bad language 🙄 it’s game of football ffs #SkySports

  • barcamark Living The Dream⛳⛳ (@barcamark) reported from Wombourne, England

    Whilst @SkySports football commentators are bloody awful @PremierSportsTV surpassed them tonight with @BumperGraham's inane drivel........

  • conners14 Keith Conway (@conners14) reported from Solihull, England

    @SkyHelpTeam can someone please help me get this sorted. Current service ends on Monday, I need a resolution. A month should have been long enough for you to sort.

  • westEDDIEheath edward morris (@westEDDIEheath) reported from Barnt Green, England

    @SkyHelpTeam Your twitter page states you are open from 08:30 - 21:00 just called to cancel some of my package and it tells me your closed, what a joke. What’s the point in having the option to cancel online then make me call. It’s just a con...

  • fosterhm07 Harrison (@fosterhm07) reported from Hagley, England

    An absolute **** up the spurs game isn’t on @SkySports

  • andrew_buck *Bucky* (@andrew_buck) reported from Coleshill, England

    @SkySports once again silencing the pitch microphones. Obviously didn’t like the Blues fans singing ‘**** the @EFL ‘

  • Andrew_1970_ Andrew Henson 🏳️‍🌈 (@Andrew_1970_) reported from Birmingham, England

    @Lukedfrt @SkyUK Well it looks like @SkyUK has got me over a barrel so once my contract ends in September I will definitely say goodbye to them and never ever take Sky television again they did nothing to offer me anything to reduce my monthly bill and yet they can call me a loyal customer

  • Andrew_1970_ Andrew Henson 🏳️‍🌈 (@Andrew_1970_) reported from Birmingham, England

    @BristolLive According to @SkyUK, Ofcom only look at Sky talk & internet this story would have no influence if you have Sky TV only. So you can terminate your contract if you have sky Talk or internet but not if it's early Sky TV according to Sky themselves as I,ve been on the phone to them

  • Andrew_1970_ Andrew Henson 🏳️‍🌈 (@Andrew_1970_) reported from Birmingham, England

    @Lukedfrt @SkyUK If sky stick to their guns, I'll wait for my contract ends in September & will never return back to them, pulling a stunt like this. Have you heard the new @TalkTalk ad you can take a contract out with them and I will not increase the price throughout the whole of the contract

  • adele_2021 Adele (@adele_2021) reported from Walsall Wood, England

    @SkyHelpTeam Thanks but your online advice doesn’t help with the issue of a faulty battery where the phone randomly turning itself off when it’s on 100% battery & not switching on again until it’s connected to power

  • adele_2021 Adele (@adele_2021) reported from Birmingham, England

    @SkyHelpTeam your call centre service is so poor. Already been on hold for 15 minutes to report a faulty mobile & no sign of call being answered

  • KickedbyKellard Kicked by Kellard #ChangePolitics (@KickedbyKellard) reported from Kinvere, England

    Sunderland beating Bristol R 1-0 at HT + already the talk on @SkySports is about how they'll go on to win at Wembley. Grigg took his goal well but we can cause them big problems. And Bristol R aren't out of it yet!

  • Antonia_Dobson Antonia Fray (@Antonia_Dobson) reported from Solihull, England

    @SkyUK when you do everything by the book cancelling your subs you don’t cancel your DD Sky take your money and then use the excuse the bill was already generated so wont refund you unless you call back in a months time!!! Won’t be going back there

  • dmc1305 David Crew (@dmc1305) reported from Wednesfield, England

    @TonyStampPC595 @SkyUK We've left Virgin, stupid constant price hikes. With BT now, broadband not as good but less that half the price

  • snapdragon61 John Davie (@snapdragon61) reported from Birmingham, England

    @SkyHelpTeam wasted hours with your team member Ashley on messenger.all I want to do is cancel sky broadband as I am moving home.

  • nabirmingham Nathan™ (@nabirmingham) reported from Solihull, England

    Dear @SkySports I shouldn’t have to go looking for football on the red button nobody in there right minds wants to watch football greatest over a live football match you idiots sort your shit out #*****

  • RichardEarp14 Richard Earp (@RichardEarp14) reported from Kidderminster, England

    I think you’d get a better quality of picture on a stream rather than the red button. It’s awful. #QPRWBA @SkyHelpTeam @SkyFootball

  • MarkHulme_ Mark Hulme.💀 (@MarkHulme_) reported from Willenhall, England

    @SkyHelpTeam I’ve already been through this with your customer services team over the phone. Basically, nothings changed and I’ve had numerous engineers out and the signal and service is still poor. And looking at my Twitter feed it looks like there’s thousands of others exactly the same!

  • ColletteLynn_ ¢σℓℓєттє ℓуηη мσσяє♥ (@ColletteLynn_) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam There’s no point because nobody is helping and I can’t cancel because I’m in contract and you won’t reduce my price because I’m in contract and you won’t refund my money you’ve taken incorrectly.

  • ColletteLynn_ ¢σℓℓєттє ℓуηη мσσяє♥ (@ColletteLynn_) reported

    Absolutely hate talking to @SkyUK - Can’t wait to cancel my contract, definitely would not recommend to anyone after the experience I’ve had over the past few months. Angry is an understatement! #WorstCustomerCare #WorstDay

  • snoobzie Shaun (@snoobzie) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam Afternoon, I raised an issue with router firmware on the phone app, and was flagged for downgrade. A couple of days later I get a txt asking if my issue is resolved. I reply no and I've had no response for nearly a week

  • ArtsyHerbiVore ArtsyHerbivoreⓋ❦ (@ArtsyHerbiVore) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam I HAVE kept previous number. That’s definitely the line in use. It’s also the number registered in my Apple ID info on phone. HOWEVER, it’s not the number appearing on people’s phones when I text them. Bizarre. Your link won’t help as it’s about keeping old number. I’ve done that

  • IamCarrieagain Carrie (@IamCarrieagain) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam Restarted my mobile and I now have service on my 'phone as well as TV. False alarm @SkyHelpTeam

  • ngriffiths2 Nicola Griffiths (@ngriffiths2) reported

    @SkyUK @SkyHelpTeam Terrible customer service. Trying to cancel father-in-laws Sky TV, on phone for half an hour enduring hard sell tactics. Thank God he had me to talk on his behalf, feel sorry for elderly and vulnerable who have no one to help them. Disgusting.
