      Question Reconditioned or new box with Sky+ subscription?

      Hi everyone!

      I have today subscribed to Sky+ and paid 99 for a box, they will be installing dish, box cable etc later this week. I have read all sorts of stuff about Sky+ boxes failing, and even reconditioned boxes being installed from the outset.

      What should I expect at installation, a brand new box for my 99 or a reconditioned one? If the latter, do I insist on a new box being fitted?

      Thanks for your advice!

      At 99.00 you should expect a brand new PVR3 box - definitely if you have also paid the 30.00 install fee. If they try to give you a re-conditioned one (often identifiable as they usually come in brown boxes) then refuse the install. You could just phone up and confirm that it's a brand new box they've got you down for?
