      Sky Q Mini Box

      Hi

      Is it possible to get Sky Q mini without having an engineer install? We already have 1 Mini box so looking to add an extra box.

      Also has anyone had success of using a second hand mini box of ebay, gumtree etc?

      Thanks

      It used to be possible to speak to Sky and they would send a mini for self installation. I can’t think why they would have stopped doing that, so ring them up and ask. What’s to lose aside from the admin fee they charge?

      I would stay away from “purchasing” any Q equipment from eBay or wherever for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it won’t work as Sky will have likely blocked it and secondly you are handling stolen goods - all Q equipment is loaned out by Sky so for anything to appear on any other website means it has effectively been stolen by the vendor.

      I must have been lucky, then. I called Sky and asked for another Mini and got it sent for self installation no problem.

      It's worth asking.
