      10 for Sky+, ???

      does anyone know the reason for the 10 fee on sky+. Is this simply an equipment rental fee or does one have to pay this subscription in order to use the recording feature.

      The reason i need to know this is i have purchased a sky+ box from an independant supplier and would like to know if i can connect this, contact sky and have them match the viewing card and then be able to record.

      If not is there any way of using the recording feature on a sky+ box without having to pay the 10...

      any response would be greatly appreciated

      thankx

      To use the recording, live pause/rewind etc, you need a sky+ sub which is free if you have 2 premium channels.

      They charge the fee because they can (marketing reasons vs customer demand).

      so without a sky+ subscription the sky+ box is simply the same as a standard box?
