Sky has launched a new broadband deal offering six months' half price internet access, it has been reported.
According to ISPreview.co.uk, the service provider is now offering a 50 per cent discount on unlimited broadband bundles for the first six months.
Households can take advantage of the offer by signing up for a home phone and broadband package, or a triple-play bundle including subscription TV services.
Sky's Unlimited Broadband Bundle offers subscribers access to up to 20Mb download speeds, and unrestricted data consumption.
This means the broadband package is ideal for web users who enjoy downloading videos and music, playing online games or watching catch-up TV services.
UK evening and weekend calls are also included on the Sky Talk Freetime tariff, enabling consumers to make home phone savings.
Additional value is offered by virtue of a free Wi-Fi 'N' spec router, which enables broadband users to get online anywhere in the home.
The dual-play broadband package costs £5 per month for the first six months, rising to £10 for the remainder of the contract.
A £12.25 per month line rental fee also applies for broadband subscribers.
Consumers wishing to sign up for Sky TV services can take out a broadband, home phone and TV bundle for £23.75 per month, rising to £27.50 per month.
Subscribers receive the basic Sky TV package, and also a free Sky+ TV box. A £30 standard set-up fee applies.
All other features of the dual-play broadband package apply for broadband, calls and TV subscribers, including the line rental fee.
UK customers signing up for their Sky broadband deal over the internet can also take advantage of a free £25 Marks & Spencer voucher, enabling them to make significant savings in the high street store.
