How Can I Cancel Sky the Easy Way
As one of the United Kingdom's most popular broadcasting and telecommunications services, Sky offers a multitude of great deals when it comes to streaming services and staying connected. The digital provider has been around since 1990 and has grown astronomically in scale. Sky is part of the Comcast group, which is an American corporation that offers similar services.
While Sky is the leading media and entertainment company in the UK, it's still competing with other companies and might not always be the best option for every household's needs. Are you looking to try out another service and cancel Sky plans you're currently enrolled in? DoNotPay can help make the process a seamless and stress-free experience. Find out how below.
What Does Sky Include?
Sky offers a variety of plans to fit the needs of everyone. They're an all-in-one company that can't be defined by a singular product or solution. The easiest way to break down Sky's services is by the product type, which can be defined into 4 categories

What are Sky Cancellation Policies?
If you've decided that Sky is not the provider for you, that's okay. Cancelling the service can be a little time-consuming. The cancellation process is slightly different for each plan, but the overall requirements are that you give Sky 31+ days of notice that you're wishing to cancel your service plan with them.
If you're within 14 days of the delivery of equipment, installation, or confirmation of agreeing to terms & conditions with a product, then you do not have to provide 31+ days' notice. However, you may have to pay a termination charge if you haven't met your minimum term and it's outside of your 14-day cooling-off period.
- For Sky+, Sky Glass, and Sky Q, you'll be required to return all equipment within a reasonable amount of time, following instructions provided when your termination request has been processed.
- If you fail to return Sky's equipment, you may be charged separately and receive a final bill.
In order to cancel your Sky services, you can do so through the My Account portal under the My Sky tab or you can call the Sky Customer Contact Centre at 03332 022 135. You can also use the live chat feature or send an email to customer services with your account number and request to terminate your contract.
