      For a phone extension all you need is a cheap plug in type with a two way splitter. Alternately, you could use a long RJ11/BT plug cable from the Sky box and plug it in to the nearest socket, again through a splitter.

      RJ11/BT Plug

      These can be obtained easily at your nearest B&Q or Maplins store. The biggest problem usually, is finding a suitable route for the cable.
