Weve got a Sky HD cable into one part of the property . We want to watch the TV exclusively in another room which has a single cable. If we ask Sky to change this single cable to HD (but leave the original HD cable for possible future use if plans change) firstly has anyone any idea how much Sky charge seeing as how it wont be part of a new installation package, and secondly - if you DID have two or three TV's (all plugged into phone line) I know youd be paying multi-room on top of one HD charge, but is that it, or would Sky charge an HD monthly charge for each TV you had plugged in on an HD cable ? Come to that , is multiroom an extra monthly charge for EACH extra tv as well or is it just the one monthly charge BECAUSE you have multiple tv's? Sorry if thats a bit garbled , but hopefully it will make enough sense to anyone likely to know the answer.

10.25 per room, that is it, no phone lines required.

Should be free if you take multiscreen on the phone when ringing

However if it's just to move existing box , it would be classed as a relocate and would be chargeable

Sorry to appear thick on this subject Lando (its because I am!) but if you dont have to attach to a phone line , how would Sky know how many HD TV's to charge you 10.25 for each month? Say you had an HD cable in five rooms , but only one connected to a TV - wwhat would they charge you ?

Hello,
I its appears that there is some confusion here.
Firstly cables that come in to the property are Sky Signal cable from the satellite dish 1 connection is used for viewing on a skybox HD or standard Sky box and the second connection is used for recording your sky box.
The Sky Box can be viewed and controlled from as many rooms as you require your box will only supply you with one channel at any one time.
If you require a second box so that you want to view different channels you will require multiroom a second totally separate sky box and both boxes will be required to be connected to the phone line so that sky know that both boxes are in the one property the cost for multi room Per Month is a Extra 15pound a month on top of your current monthly subscription.

Thanks Satforce . Thats good, looks like just the one HD charge then, even if we leave the original HD cable in place to the room without a tele, and just ask them to put a new HD cable to the room where we're actually going to watch. Hopefully it wont cost an arm and a leg for the visit .
