      Not without a satellite dish connection. The box will get stuck at "searching for listings".

      Sky has improved the time constraints on their Sky+ HD STBs after complaints related to bad weather and being unable to download CUTV and OD content. However since you have moved and don't have a dish it is most likely that your time will be too long for even this modified period.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
