      Old Dial-up Connector

      I have an older Sky Box without built-in wifi that still has a dial-up connector. Since I now use a wireless dongle to connect to my router is there any point (or obligation) to keep this line connected?

      Re: Old Dial-up Connector

      Assume you have a Sky+HD box connected to the Internet, then your box is capable of doing;
      Callbacks to Sky
      Interactive services
      Sky Store, Box Office and pay-per-view

      If you have a single box as above then you are not required anymore to have the box connected to a phone line.
      That has been the case for a few years now.

      Taken form Sky help section re multiscreen;
      What do I need for Sky Multiscreen?
      To enjoy Sky Multiscreen, each TV in your house needs its own Sky box and they must all be connected to the same phone line, unless you activated your viewing card after 17 December 2013 in which case no phone line connection is needed. However you need to make sure your boxes are connected to your home broadband network where possible.
      All of the channels you subscribe to are available on all Sky boxes. You can have a total of four Sky+HD boxes or eight Sky Multiscreen boxes running from the same dish.
      As a Sky Multiscreen customer you also get Sky Go Extra at no extra cost, allowing you to watch live TV or On Demand programmes on your computer, tablet or mobile device.
