      Re: Selling Sky+ Box

      Technically, you should have the Sky+ box connected to the phone line for the 12 months. Sky may or not write to you saying, that it is not connected.

      I think I have read somewhere that you can pay 25 for none connection to the phone line, although don't quote me on that.

      As long as you keep the Sky subscription, technically Sky are no worse off.

      You could possibly get the HD box from Sky for 75 plus 30 connection. Loads of people already have done so far. Glenn the other site owner got his last night for 105 fitted.

      Update:

      Multiroom subscription: 10 a month. Provides the same Sky digital channels as your main Sky digital subscription on a second box in another room. You must be a Sky digital subscriber at all times during your Multiroom subscription. Boxes that receive your first and Multiroom subscription(s) must all be connected to the same fixed telephone line at all times. An extra box is required for each Multiroom subscription. If you do not take up the free Sky box offer, a standard Sky box costs 49.
      http://www.sky.com/portal/site/skyco.../skyplus/terms

      That could be construed as, as long as there is a box connected to the phone line you should be fine. (my bold) Or that as long as you don't have Multiroom, you are not required to have it connected to the phone line.

      Re: Selling Sky+ Box

      This is from Tearms and Conditions for a Sky HD box, but I assume that they would be the same for Sky+

      A. Sky HD Satellite Equipment

      3. Ownership of the Equipment.

      3.1 On installation, the Sky HD Satellite Equipment becomes your property. The Sky HD Satellite Equipment does not include the software in the Sky HD Box.


      So yes you could sell the box, but.


      4. Viewing Card

      4.2 The Viewing Card is, and remains, the property of SSSL after it is sent to you. If SSSL asks you to, you must return it after this contract ends or when a replacement Viewing card is sent to you.

      So you cannot sell the Viewing card. You will also remain under contract to Sky for the min time, so you will still have to pay for the year.

      Looking at the T and C's I think you should be OK to do as you have suggested. If you want to make sure, you could ring Sky for clarification.

      Yes , you can sell the box, keep your existing card, and get another box (I assume you will go for HD)

      This is my reading of the terms and conditions, Check with Sky before you do it, just in case
