Do you need a subscription to the Hive plus service to use the extra thermostat?

No, but you do need a hive hub and receiver to use it.

Basically the hive receiver is either a single channel or a double channel- this means one channel controls hot water the other controls the heating, meaning you can change the schedule and times for water and heat. The single channel receiver works with a combi boiler where the water is hot all the time "on demand". This extra "zone" that maplin are selling would be for a house that has more than 2 heating zones such as downstairs and upstairs plus hot water in essence you would need "3 channels" to fully control your heating system.

No you don’t, it comes with a receiver, I literally bought it for same price and installed yesterday. As long as you have a hub this is all you need, £50 for active heating

I bought one a week ago from Maplin to upgrade the thermostat to Hive 2, five minute job and cheapest way to do it if you have Hive 1.

To be honest if we are being that pedantic then yo could use it without a hub, and have no online facilities. My post above was more about explaining the use for an additional zone!

Sorry for not being explicit enough. I was generalising......I've not typically known a user purchase a hub without any other components.....

No worries when you mentioned 2nd thermostat you made it sound like an existing heating system had to be in place for it to work
wish i could get it at this price, my little Maplin store close and bigger one, shelf's cleared,
Saw 2 controllers for £25 in Maplin at Barnsley yesterday
