More about Sky Ireland
How do I find my UAN number on my Sky bill?

Switching to Sky Broadband
Switching to Sky is quick and easy. All you need to do is choose which plan you’re interested in and fill in a few details, including your address and bank details. Sky will also look for your UAN.
When switching provider it’s unlikely that your phone service will be affected, but a loss of broadband service can sometimes occur temporarily during the switching process.
Make sure you contact your current provider to ensure you’re free to switch, and give them the required notice so that you’re not charged after you’ve switched. You’ll be able to arrange a cut-off date with them for service and then you can confirm an installation date with Sky so you experience as little downtime as possible. Once the switch happens, make sure you cancel any Direct Debits with your current provider.
How long is my contract with Sky?
Sky’s contracts generally last for 12 months. Often, Sky offers discounts for the full duration of the first 12 months, so you can make significant savings.
Can I add TV on to my Sky broadband plan?
Yes, many people do choose to add TV on to their Sky broadband - or even opt for a standalone TV deal with Sky - as their TV product is one of the best out there.
On top of great content on channels like Sky Atlantic, TV customers also get benefits like the ability to pause, rewind and record live TV, as well as the ability to take content on the move with Sky’s variety of TV apps.
