      Question Sky +

      I'm about to take the plunge and come back to Sky after a period with NTL/Virgin.

      I'm thinking about the Sky + option and would appreciate a word or two of advice.

      From what I see Sky + is the same price as normal Sky, Am I right? If not what are the comparative charges?

      I already have a dish fitted to the house from a previous existence with Sky and have one lead to the living room (where I will be viewing Sky + if I go that way) and one in the bedroom with a Free to Air card installed. If I go with Sky + will I need a second lead to the living room? If that is the case I will have to get a 2 socket box as I hate the way they just terminate the lead to the box and have loose cables all over the place.

      Will I be able to take the Sky + box in the caravan or swap the card to the standard box I already use so I can get the full selection I will be paying for?

      If anyone has any experience with Sky + (good or bad) will they please let me know.

      Thanks in anticipation

      If you have a current Sky subscription there is no need to pay the 10 Sky + subscription.

      If I go with Sky + will I need a second lead to the living room?
      Yes

      Will I be able to take the Sky + box in the caravan or swap the card to the standard box I already use so I can get the full selection I will be paying for?
      The card for the Sky+ will be paired with the Sky+ box. If you take the Sky+ box to the caravan, theoretically it should work, however with not all the full functionality unless you have a second feed to it.

      If anyone has any experience with Sky + (good or bad) will they please let me know.

      I don't have a current Sky subscription, so what difference would there be in charges - apart from the cost of the Sky + box?

      you 'should' be able to get just a sky+ sub at 10pm, but you may need to speak to a few different people at sky as it's not a common request and quite often they say it's not possible..... but it is!

      Re: Sky +

      Cheapest Sky subscription is 16.00 you will get Sky+ functionality in that price, against 10.00 for just a Sky+ subscription.
