Sky Cancellation Number0844 826 8012
No company wants people to cancel their subscriptions and take their business elsewhere, but Sky takes “customer retention” to another level by simply making the cancellation process so difficult that customers who want to leave eventually just give up trying.
However, following enormous pressure form Ofcom (and a full investigation by the Telegraph into their obstructive practices) Sky have reworked their cancellation process to make it straightforward and simple – just call the Sky cancellation phone line,0844 826 8012 , and one of their customer service staff will complete your cancellation.

More information about cancelling Sky
Sky offers a wide range of services as part of its subscription service, including television, broadband, and telephone coverage, which can be bought together or separately in any combination you choose. If you want to cancel these subscriptions, you can do so by calling the Cancel Sky number, 0844 826 8666 , where a trained member of staff will be able to help you with your cancellation. Calling the Sky cancellation line is the quickest way to cancel your subscription, but if you don’t want to call or can’t get to the phone, you can also send an email or a letter, which will take significantly longer to take effect.
Sky operates a 31-day notice period for cancellations, so you will still have access to Sky services until after your next (and last) payment to the company – if you want to cut all ties before then, an extra fee my be involved.
If yu want to negotiate a better deal with Sky by threatening to leave, then this is the number to call. However, don’t try this tactic unless you genuinely have some other option to take up after leaving, as Sky can only give a certain number of incentives to customers every year, and you may wind up high and dry, with no upgrade and an actually cancelled account.
If this were to happen, you can go deeper and cancel your cancellation within three months of your intital request, so don’t worry too much!
You may also notice when trying to cancel your subscription that Sky are notoriously hard to leave. The company does not make it easy to cancel their services, and have even been investigated by the Telegraph and forced to be less obstructive by Ofcom, the industry regulator for telecoms.
