It can be difficult to have your complaint heard, let alone resolve it. Below, we explain everything you need to know to effectively complain to Sky, including relevant addresses, social media pages, and general manager details.
Telegraph Money’s mailbag has already been inundated with complaints from readers who said Sky makes it difficult for customers to leave when a contract ends.
Readers said they encountered difficulties canceling in writing or by email, despite Sky terms and conditions suggesting it is allowed.
