    Yes you can actually, a mate of mine didn't have a phone line and he had sky no probs at all, you must tell them though. TBH if you are just not connected and actually have a line into the house, BT will reconnect for nothing and if your a new customer i think Sky pay for your line rental now anyways well at least for 12months, which is all your offer will run for anyway, then the Dirty B*****DS will up the price and tell you there are no deals about etc etc.

    i know, the offer is for 12 months, then I cancel and sign up in the misses name :-)

    If you don't have a phone line you can pay Sky £25 a one off charge, this is because the box is subsidised by some advertising company.

    If you want multi room then you cant have it as you need to have a phone line as Sky check the boxes are at the correct address

    When I had Sky installed it cost me £25 extra because I didn't have a BT phone line.

    I've known people who have been refused Sky because they haven't got a BT phone line.

    I think Sky prefer people to have a phone line because they expect you may want to buy a few movies and extra's etc..

    You can have Sky installed without a BT phone line.

    Its not rubbish, if you tell them you dont have a phone line they can charge a one off £25, and if you want multiroom you cant have it without a phone line.

    You need to be careful, they can check to see if you have your phone line connected, within the first 12month contract you MUST have a phone line connected if your contract states it.

    If not you get a snotty letter saying your in breach of contract!

    When they come to install the box and see no BT line, surely they will just refuse and walk off

    You can go onto Sky Talk where they should pay to reconnect you, then it's £10.50 per month.
