      You'll need the phone line for your BB as well.

      I would suggest that you take a look at the full details of your sky bill on-line and really be critical about what channels you actually need and remove the subscriptions that they are part of.

      Don't get too sentimental if you are cutting costs, really look harshly at what you can afford, including the multi-room option. Could you put up with using the additional box as a free to view box for a few months instead?

      Good luck.

      Another option instead of a multiroom box is to use something like a Magic Eye in your other room. The Magic Eye connects to a Sky box and allows you to control it in another room and thus saving you at least 1.25 per month in multiroom fees.

      The main cost of your TV packages are sports and movies. If you only really watch sports then you could drop movies. This will leave you with the 6 sky entertainment mixes and sports mix this will come in at approx 40 P/M. YOu will then have 10.52 hd subs, 10.25 MR subs, 11.25 sky line rental and it states on your profile your on sky max. This is an old Broadband product. If your still on this call sky and asked to be moved onto Sky unlimited this is 7.50 p/m as a pose to 10 p/m for sky max. Only a little saving but they all count

      You could also then look at dropping some of the entertainment mixes but these are only going to knock 1 per mix you drop off from the approx 40.

      If you keep the mixes, sports, bb and phone line, multi room and HD subs and drop movies, espn and change to unlimiteed your montly bill will drop to 79 (approx)

      Changing from max to unlimited will put you in a new 12 month broadband contract.
