    What is needed for a Sky HD box to work?

    My old white Sky+ box has died, sky are charging £199 for a new HD box or £60 for a engineer to come and fix this one. After looking on ebay and seeing the HD boxes be about £50, it is very advertising to just buy one of these. If i do, would they work straight away? do I need to get a new sky subscription? If it is any help, i also have a sky hd box in another room too.

    Thanks

    Yep buy one and then ring up sky to pair up your card with the box.

    Thanks for the quick response, so would i have to pay sky any more money for this?

    To get HD you will need to upgrade for £10 a month

    As per above only if you want the hd channels although you get some free anyways.

    Will i still be able to use it as a recorder though? not just a receiver

    man this is confusing, do you currently have a sky subscription?

    Haha sorry
    Yes i do, i currently have a HD sub and a sub for my sky+

    tell sky you want to cancel as the box aint working, they will send you a new one for free most likely.

    wait, you pay for a HD sub but only had a white+ box??

    no i have 2 sky boxes. 1 hd, and one old sky+ (broken)

    As above tell them you wanna cancel cos your box is broke and you cant afford to have it fixed or buy another they will give you one free, it worked for me.
