      Moving question

      We are moving to a new rented house and have found out that the landlord will not allow a sky dish to be put up on the property. We have 6 months left on our sky contract at the moment. Could we leave the satelite dish there but take our skybroadband with us?

      Re: Moving question

      I notice you're on the Sky BASE package (according to your profile). You have to be a subscriber to Sky TV to be able to user the Base, Mid or Max packages so you won't be able to remain on the Base package you're currently on if you stop subscribing to Sky TV.

      You may be able to change your package to Sky Connect Broadband which doesn't require you to be a Sky TV subscriber but there is a monthly fee of 17 for the Sky Connect service.

      I would ring up Sky customer services and explain your situation then see what options they can offer you.

      Also see if your local council has a Housing Advice Service (or try Citizen's Advice Bureau). Unless it's a Conservation Area I'm not sure a landlord can unreasonably withold permission for something like a TV aerial (or dish) -- though obviously you'd have to remove it and make good any holes in the masonry at the end of the tenancy.

      Re: Moving question

      As far as I have heard, if you move house and cannot get Sky, then they would let the contract go. They agreed to supply you with Sky for the contract length as well as you agreeing to pay for the contract length.

      I am not sure if that is true or not, but I am positve someone reported that they got out of the contract. To get broadband though you do have to subscribe for the TV so I suppose theoretically, if you paid the balance of the old contract in full and let the residents of your old property have free Sky, then if it was me I would let you keep the broadband.

      Best ring them though to check.

      Sounds like a fantastically bad way to start off a relationship with a new landlord!
