      You would have to subscribe to Sky in order to get the viewing card, but yes it could be done.

      Personally I would opt to join Sky using one of the many deal, get a free Sky+ HD STB (2TB will be available for a good price) and a good price for the installation too.

      This would result in a 12 month warranty for all the work and the new STB.

      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

      If you already have Sky TV you can order a multiroom viewing card for 11.25/month which will give you access to the same channels as you main Sky box. Let the agent know that it is for a Sky+ HD box when placing the order and check that a free Sky+ subscription has been included. To comply with Sky's T&Cs both boxes need to be connected to the same telephone line which is capable of making outgoing calls.
