      Need a bit of help...

      Just got a few questions about sky TV .. if anyone could help it would be great.

      1. Is it possible to have 2 different subscriptions in one house but using the same sat. dish ? as i live in an apartment but want my own subscription to sky+ HD for my room. I already have standard sky in the living room, but do not want to change this as is it shared be me and a flatmate and they didn't want to upgrade.
      Also how would this be installed?

      Many thanks to anyone that has any info on this.

      Nick.

      If I was you, I would just get another box on multiroom and share the cost of the subscription. You would probably get movies, all mixes and sports + multiroom for the same cost as two seperate subs.

      To answer your original question, you may have to tell sky that you have flat 1 and flat 2 in the building, you can share the dish as you will have a quad LNB with four outputs so in theory you could fit another 2 standard boxes and you HD to it or two Sky+ boxes (hd or not).
