All I wanted to know was how much SKY Television's new HD set top box costs.
That meant waiting ages, and this is with broadband so God help dialup users, for the flash based site to load. Then I had to listen to some stupid receptionist prattle on about nothing, at one stage even telling me “Don’t forget, you have to click stuff”, while trying to find anything that looked like a “Price” link.
This is on a site that has no mention of pricing until you click on “Get MySKY HDi”. I don’t want to get it, I just want to know how much it is!
God forbid if you want any other info as clicking a link triggers yet more prattle from the receptionist, vaguely related to the feature, then asks the question “Would you like to learn a bit more about it?”. Well that’s why I clicked on the bloody link in the first place!
Oh, if you want to know I eventually clicked “Get MySKY HDi” and it’s a one off $599 joining fee or $49 installation fee plus $15 per month for the rest of eternity (about how long the damn site takes to load).
I then clicked “Close” on a website that did nothing to make me want “MySky Hdi”.
Who designed this crap?
