SkyCable Dual Def 299




SkyCable subscription should be carefully examined before a household gets a subscription. For example, SkyCable Dual Def 299 is not the original subscription we applied for, but in the span of at least two months, we noticed that we are not maximizing our subscription. We learned that we only watch local channels and a few high-definition (HD) channels.

We thought that we would be okay with SkyCable Dual Def 549 because it has lots of HD channels and watching it on a big LED TV would be just as awesome.

Two months later we were convinced that we only watch HBO HD and the rest are the standard definition (SD) channels.

SkyCable Hotline

The classic way to get your account modified is to call the hotline. Be prepared with your account number and a series of customer verification process. Have your mobile number prepared, your birthday and billing address? These are the few of the questions they will ask you. SkyCable Hotline is +63 2 381 0000.

The SkyCable Dual Def 299 Channel line up is good enough for our consumption. The SD channels are clear, but the HD ones are really nice especially on a huge TV screen.

By the way, there is a one-time fee of P1,599 for this subscription. They will provide a digital box and gone are the days that you can split your cable and share into your other rooms.

    Promise of high definition reception via change to digital reception with a digibox, free for old subscribers, not fulfilled; but you have to pay an extra fee for each individual channels to get high definition.

    Now the channels are in worse definition than previously with analog reception only.
