      50ft max

      Hi

      I am after getting SKY+, I rang sky and they informed me that the max cable that an installer would put in is 50ft.

      To get a phone line to where my tv is means a cable going round the outside of my house, well over 50ft.

      If i pay 30 for installation and the installer says he wont do the wiring cos its too far, where would i stand? Could I claim it back? Can I order SKY+ with no installation until an engineer says yes or no?

      I heard a story that SKY would charge me more if a phone line isnt fitted? Does it need a phone line?

      Cheers

      Guy

      Re: 50ft max

      Sorry, are you on about the installer fitting a phone cable?

      I think you would have to do that part yourself.

      As for the coax for the Satellite connection, I may be wrong but you can pay extra for the extra cable. iirc

      As for the phone line, yes the Sky+ box calls home, however people are reporting that you can pay extra to not have this condition. Again iirc approx 25
