      Sky +.Help required!!

      Hi,
      I'm new to the forum.
      Had a quick look round,now need some help/advice!!
      I have been offered a Sky+ box at a good price by a mate. He has only had it for 2 or 3 weeks and it was fitted as new. He has now decided (due to new telly) that he wants to get a Sky HD box.

      Here are my questions:-

      1:- Is the Sky+ box his to sell after only a couple of weeks or is it still the property of Sky for the first 12 months?

      2:- If I bought the box would I be able to add it to my dads Sky account? He has already got a Sky+ box in the living room and a free to air Sky box in his study/spare room.He currently has a quad LNB on the Sat dish so I know I'll need to upgrade it to an octo lnb but once I've done that could I connect it and take advantage of multi room subscription rates?

      Thanks in advance and sorry if these questions have been asked before!!

      1) If he got it as part of a signup deal, he maybe subject to having it kept in his phone socket for 12 months.

      Or if he bought it outright, ie paid in full, rather than as a new customer, I see no reason why you cannot do what you wish to.

      If I bought the box would I be able to add it to my dads Sky account?
      You would need a card from Sky and multiroom if you wish to watch the same channels as your standard box (provided you are having two STB's)

      I've done that could I connect it and take advantage of multi room subscription rates?
      Pretty positive, provided your friend has paid for the Sky + box, you should be fine.

      depends on whether they are going to subsidise the price of his HD box for previously purchasing sky+

      if they do then they will want it back, if not and he paid full price for it...its his and he can do as he likes with it

      Spoke to Sky customer services earlier on and basically after putting me on hold for a couple of minutes the lady came back and said it's fine for him to sell it!!
      He will get his HD box and I've got a cheap sky+ box!!
