      Is it legal

      For me to sell my old SKY box on eBay? Original plan when upgraded to SKY+HD was to keep it in case of an emergency. However; it is taking up room so I want to get rid of it. Called SKY and they said they weren't prepared to send an engineer to collect it, but if I wanted to send it to them I had to pay the costs.

      So I wanted to check I can put it on eBay without SKY causing a stink. I put my old Xp on eBay but it got taken off.

      If outside the first 12 months then the unit is yours to dispose of as you see fit AFAIK

      Sky T&C's

      Ownership of the equipment.

      3.1 "On installation, the Sky Satellite Equipment becomes your property. This does not include the software in the Sky Box, which is owned or licensed to Sky or another member of the BSkyB Group"

      So yes you can sell the box at any time after installation, but obviously if you were to sell it
      during the min period of your subscription, you would still have to pay the subscription.
