I can take it, but only need to check something from all of you who have knowledge on this:

I am buying the normal Sky Contract (No Sky+ of Sky HD).
So will the viewing card for this work on your Sky+ box & I can do things as Sky+ customers can do??

Apologies if that sounds a stupid question..

for this to work you need to subscibe to sky plus not normal sky i think, i dont think its a different price though, your best bet would be to ring sky or email them and ask

Before it goes to karim I have a quick question mate. Sorry as I am dumb in all this..




Okay, the question is: I am buying the 6 mixes Sky + Sky Sports 1 & 2 & will be paying the 38£ per month for that. I have no phone line & will be getting the Sky dish outside my house.

Will this Sky+ box let me do everything that a normal sky+ box would do??

Would they charge me any installation??

Any quick help will be much appreciated, PLEASE... Apologies for knowingh nothing!! :oops:

when you get a contract with sky, does not matter what mixes etc you choose, they will send an engineer round with a standard sky box and install the dish and 1 cable from the sky dish to the box. If you order sky+ from sky paying extra for the box, the sky engineer will linstall the dish and 2 cables to give you full sky+ features, if you wanted to plug in your own sky+ box then it would have limited functions (ie as youll only have one cable coming in you wont be able to watch one channel and record another, or record 2 channels at the same time). i had a sky+ give to me and got noraml sky subscription thinking i could pust switch the boxes over once the engineer had gone. When i realised that it wouldnt work i tried to get the engineer to put in 2 cables but he said he werent contracted to do that and wanted to charge me loads extra!

You need to pick up a 4 way LNB for the dish and then run another cable to it so you can have full function. You can often pick up Sky+ boxes from sky if you are a subscriber for £50 with instillation if you tell them you are leaving. Much cheaper way of doing it.

Thanks guys. Rep Added! :thumbsup:

i bought a sky plus box with remote for £35 on here and a 4way (quad) lmb from ebay £9

already subscribing to normal sky i had the dish on the wall i just swapped over the lmb's and ran down another 6metres of coaxle cable £2 and hey presto i rang sky told then i just got a sky plus box from a family member that recently got virgin media and i wanted my sky+ features activated as im an exsiting client and i have been with them a year i want if free. to my supprise they told me if your already a cutsomer of sky and have got your own equpiment the service IS free.
[mod]#23
Yes, Sky+ service now is free. They scrapped the £10 pm for it last year. Only multi-room still costs an extra £10 :)
#24
Yeah. It's easy to fit the extra cable for Sky+ and save yourself money.
