    Sky Question

    Hello,

    I got a second hand sky + box and was wondering what is the best way to connect it to my room so that i can watch my own channels? (if there is a way)

    I was considering getting sky multi room, but managed to get a sky box cheap so just wondering if it would be any use.

    Thanks

    unless you get a multi room account you can only get freesat.

    I have a box in each room, u can get all freeview channels without having a card in, then when we want to go to bed and watch tv we just take the card from the living room box and it enables us to watch all the sky channels in the bedroom.

    No use if u want both running at once but hope it helps!

    would it matter that i dont have an outside ariel for my tv? will the sky box pick up the freeview channels?

    You would get all freesat channels through your dish. Freeview is only available with an Aerial only. Fressat through Sky will give you additional content over a normal Freesat box including Channel 4 HD and Channel 5 HD, Sky News and I think Sky 3 off the top of my head.

    How do you get HD channels on a Sky+ Receiver?

    Sky3 is no longer Sky 3, it has some silly new name now.

    Just checking, you will need a cable fron your dish to your other sky box.
