      5 Sky Feeds from One Dish?

      I'm going to be taking up Sky on their offer of the free Sky+ HD box - just the installation charges.

      Anyway, at the moment I have a Sky+ box and two standard Digiboxes (One multiroom, one freesat). At the moment, a quad LNB is connected to the dish, and all the feeds are in use.

      Basically, I want to replace the multiroom digibox with my old Sky+ box. However, now I will need to have 5 feeds. Will the Standard Installation cover the cost of the LNB for the Sky+HD, or will I have to pay for it myself.

      Thanks in advance.

      Yes the install will include an octo LNB but you should remind them at every opportunity that you will need one, otherwise there is a good chance it wont be on the van.

      Sky engineers always carries Octo LNB's on vans, its the sub contractors that may not carry them.
