      is SkyPlayer completely free?

      Hi
      My parents have Sky+ excluding some packages such as movies and sports. I have a laptop with Windows 7 on it. I was wondering if I use SkyPlayer in Windows Media Centre is it completely free? Is there definately no extra cost to using this? Do you need Sky Multiroom or any other package to enable this? Also, Can you only use it in the house that it is subscribed to or can I use it when I am at uni?

      Thanks

      Some programmes you have to rent (a posh way of saying charging you).

      You have to have either Sky Multiroom or Unlimited Broadband to be able to view the live channels. You can use it on four computers.
