i will have your box

As long as you have at least on of the Sky 'Mixes' there's no additional charge for the Sky+ functions. However, you will have to give them a quick call to get your viewing card paired to the new box.

have you bought a sky+ box from elsewhere? i think you just phone up and ask for the new box to be paired with the viewing card, doesn't cost anything, as far as i can remember

Does the person buying this off you (in your FS thread) already have a dish installed (it's unclear from their posts)? It's worth checking, as they might not have two feeds coming in from the dish if they only have standard SKY, and without the extra feed they won't be able to record etc.

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:

Don't Sky's terms say that you have to have equipment connected to a phone line for 12 months minimum?

Just phone sky and threaten to cancel they will come and upgrade you for free. In fact they looke at my package and not only did it for free but knocked a few pound a month off my subscription

I'm not sure how you will get on without the phoneline tbh....I'm sure as part of your contract you have to have the receiver connected to a phoneline for the 1st 12 months. Sky do their own phone line now, so I can imagine they'll try and sell you that too.

Don't quite know what you mean by this :? A normal SKY box just lets you watch one channel. A SKY+ box lets you watch one while recording another, and the ability to pause what you are watching.

Are you getting the SKY+ from sky, or from the FS forum on here? If from Sky, I think the install is about £30....but if you are only asking them to come out and put up a dish you might be looking at quite a bit more. If you are just having the dish installed, make sure they fit a dual LNB and two cables from it, or else SKY+ will be pointless.

They confirmed to me that if I dont take only the Sky TV, they will do that for me without the phone line for a one off payment of 25£ (No Telephone LIne charge). They just need an excuse to make money..

Makes sense mate??

Dont know why, but the forum does not allow me to give rep to all of you.

Says: go & spread rep elsewhere before giving it to
