      I already have two Sky+ boxes and was just looking at replacing my main box. She told me it was cheaper to have it installed than buy it off the shelf because of the way their discounts work on the system.

      If I can get a 2TB box for 109 then I can probably get 40 for my old Sky+ box on eBay, bringing the overall cost down to about the same as buying a 2TB HDD. Just need to get permission from the bank of Wifey after accidentally forgetting to tell her about the recent Sky Fibre upgrade...

      It is still a bit strange that if you upgrade to multi room with a standard box, it will cost you 199, whereas a 2Tb box costs only 49. I can't see the logic.

      We have 2 HD boxes, and looking on MySky, if I add a new Multiroom subscription, I can get the 2TB box for 49

      From what I can recall, it is a promotional offer where the box is at 49. Come end of October it will go up to around 149 just like the 1TB box was.

      From what I recall the 1Tb box was always 49 with this offer, ie, cheaper than the standard box.

      Sky's 2TB is on offer for new HD customers at 49 for the box, customers who have or have had HD in the past aren't eligible for it. And as far as the 49 for it with multi-room, that's a retention offer for existing customers.

      I thought that too, but no matter what I do they still want 249 out of me for the new box. It's not going to happen.
