      sky+ and multiroom

      I am thinking of getting this but if the contract is for 12 months what happens if I don't want to continue with multilroom after the 12 months? Do I just get the standard free channels on the extra box and continue with sky+ on the other or do i get nothing on the extra box?

      I already have broadband and standard box but if I take sky talk and multiroom I could get the sky+ for 49 with no installation cost. Am I right in thinking this. I know I would then have to pay 10 a month for multiroom for 1 year bringing the total year cost to 179 (49 sky+ 120 multiroom subscription). If I don't have multiroom its going to cost me 130 (99 sky+ 30 installation) so I figure for the extra 50 I could have multiroom for a year. Hope this isn't too confusing. Thanks for any help. Di.

      Wolvo girl,
      You are right in thinking that you can get Sky+ and multiroom for 49, then 10 p/m. I ordered this yesterday and I confirmed this pricing with 2 different agents. I used my debit card over phone and he deducted the princely sum of 49. I also get a new standard box included. The only downside is that Im going to have to give our bedroom a good going over before the engineer arrives on Saturday, I couldnt live with the embarrassment

      Question Re: sky+ and multiroom

      heelo
      ive been with sky for several months with a sky plus box but when i joined the agent who came out charged 49 quid for the box i thought great anytime soon and 40 hours recording but NO i got a refurb pvr1 and i was furious,anyway now i saw the 49 quid deal again and confirmed that pvr3's are the current deal and i would get one (for 80gig and anytime)

      i was wondering if anyone has took up the same offer sky talk,broadband,tv and multiroom and got a PVR3 for 49 quid and if it was an amstrad and if they had a choice in the matter

      thanks for any help in the future
      spp

      you dont need to have the full package or any sort of multiroom deal to get sky+ for 49 fitted, you just need to speak to the correct people
      myself and 2 of my mates have just had it fitted for 49 all in and it was pretty easy to arrange.

      Re: sky+ and multiroom

      Hi About 2 years ago I did Just what you are thinking about, then cancelled after the 12 month period, as I could not justify the 10 per month for the amount I was using it, but I now have good quality freeview in the extra room. Sky+ is marvellous and I would not be without it. take the plunge and enjoy. cheers

      Re: sky+ and multiroom

      Just to confirm what wolvo girl was asking.

      Just done exactly that....from one digibox to digibox and Sky + (multiroom) for a one off payment of 49.99 and an extra 10 a month.


      I also persuaded Sky to allow me to drop my MAX bb package to MID, even though they initially said I couldn't (this was my bargaining tool to offset the 10 multiroom with my wife!!)

      Who are the "correct people"? I've called sky at least 3 times in the last week, trying to get my single box upgraded to sky+, but they want me to either sign up for their broadband (which I cant) or pay 179!!

      Re: sky+ and multiroom

      I am having a new conservatory build in 2 weeks time so will take the plunge then. What I really wanted to know was what happens after 12 months if I cancel multi-room. Do I get any signal at all on the multi-room box? Di.

      iand68 - if I am not mistaken you should be able to upgrade from sky to sky+ for 99 and 30 installation cost. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong. Di.

      Di, After the 12 Months, When you cancel, The additional Sky box (Multiroom) becomes a FTA, Just as if you would have cancelled your main box.
