      Multiscreen questions

      Hi

      My brother has sky + I think, and wants Multi screen.
      There is double cabling to only one room meantime. If he signs up to multiscreen - will the cable installation, any LNB upgrade, etc and installation be included in the increased monthly charge? Is it still an extra 10 per month?
      Is it a year minimum subscription and can it be unsubscribed after that leaving the wiring intact. He realises he will only be able to watch one channel at a time after ending a sub.
      Thanks for any information.

      Sky Multi-screen costs an extra 11.25 per month but this includes Sky Go Extra at no additional cost. If a new STB and installation is required then it will be subject to a twelve month minimum term.
      If taking the Sky HD (none recording) box, equipment and standard installation is currently free. This assumes your brother has his own dish. In flats/apartments where a shared dish is fitted there may be an installation charge.

      When a Sky subscription is cancelled after the end of the contract there isn't an engineers visit so all wiring is left intact. Each box will continue to function as a Freesat from Sky box but boxes with the "plus" feature will be unable to record.

      Actually, the non-recording box is currently 49. But there is a global (available to any customer) offer for a Sky+HD box in a second room and install for free [only for new multiscreen customers, ie first extra room].

      Apart from this, seawright's post is accurate.

      If you have problem booking this then call retentions as we can usually work around this.
