      Mulitroom but to another house...

      Hi all,

      I have had sky set up in my parents house for quite some time and over the weekend I moved out to a place of my own. Due to the low lying area I cant get normal tv, but there was a sky dish. I was just going to get a free sat box, but thought I would just take my sky box that was from my mulitroom package to see if I would get anything from that before paying out.
      Turned it on (still got the card in) and I get all the channels (movies etc) I had in my old house.
      Can anyone tell me if sky are smart to this and will they block it (my box) anytime soon? Eventhough We still pay for the normal sub from sky each month, this means I got sky in my new place for under 10 a month.

      Sky are way ahead of you on this one. In order to qualify fo r the reduced multy-room sub you need to have both boxes connected to the same phone line. All that will happen is at some point Sky will bill you, or the account holder, with two full priced subs.

      Neither boxes have been connected to a landline in the last 2 years.

      Have you, or your parents actually checked what they are paying? There have been a couple of cases reported recently where the phone was disconnected and the users were being charged double for several months. They have little hope of a refund.
