      Have sky+ box, q re installation

      Hi,

      A friend is upgrading from Sky+ to a Sky HD box and has offered us their Sky+ box. Do you know how much we would have to pay to have it installed? We currently have sky but subscribe to the basic package (paying 21 per month). Do you also know if we need to subscribe to a premium service or if we don't is there a monthly Sky+subscription?

      Thanks

      You can use their Sky+ box. It would need a new LNB on the dish, and an extra feed running to the the STB.

      You could do it yourself, if you are confident or a local installer maybe cheaper.

      As long as you have Sky TV - Sky+ functionality is free. You would need to take the card out of the old box and then put it into the Sky+ box and then ring Sky to pair the card to the box.
