Why pay ?10 per month for Sky Multiroom?
Additional Outlet. You can install an additional outlet from your Sky box to a TV in another room. Both will show the same Sky channel at the same time. A one-off installation cost of $ will apply per additional outlet with no ongoing monthly charges. Note: If you have a My Sky box and you view Sky on other TVs in your home, you'll require a modulator to keep the existing outlets working which is . Nov 23, · If you already have a mini then you already have Multiscreen. As @bob says the Minis can connect by WiFi to the main Q box for Sky TV and connect to the TV by HDMI cable so they just need a power socket. If you want Terrestrial TV, Freeview etc then you will need a terrestrial aerial connection to each TV.

Yorkieboy1 Assuming you mean Q you only need a feed from the dish to the main box any other boxes connect how to connect speakers to dj controller WiFi. Assume then that you have ordered The Multiscreen subscription and two minis from Sky.
If you already have a mini then you already have Multiscreen. This is not done by Sky and if you need this you must make you own arrangements. Thanks for the answer guys no I just want sky on the TVs at the moment so the feed from the dish will be suffice. Just a word of warning - you can have more than 2 mini boxes but you will only be able to use 2 at any one time and your main box of course.

Aug 24, · A common set up to have Sky in another room or Sky in different rooms is to use an i/0 link add-on modulator or RF2 output via a coaxial cable to reach a TV in another room. You may also have an aerial amplifier connected in the middle of the Skybox and the 2nd TV so as to create some sort of multiroom set-up. I have been a Sky subscriber for 15 years and find the biggest problem with it (other than the exorbitant subscription) is the inability to watch two channels simultaneously. Sky’s answer is to charge ?10 per month for the privilege which is like the BBC saying you have to have a second TV license to watch two Freeview channels. How to Install Sky Q Mini Box. 1. Setup the Box. The first step when connecting Sky Q mini box is to set up the box with all the required cables and accessories. To do so, do the 2. Set up the Remote. 3. Connect the Box using WPS. 4.

Welcome to the Digital Spy forums. Forums Recent Rules My Activity. Hey there! Sign In Register. I have been a Sky subscriber for 15 years and find the biggest problem with it other than the exorbitant subscription is the inability to watch two channels simultaneously. I could buy a second unsubsidised digibox to overcome this problem but will never pay Sky any extra for a second viewing card. That's your view. I personally like the ability to watch different Sky channels in different rooms having 4 kids does that.
Yes, of course, I'd prefer to pay less and get more, but that's not on offer and no, Freeview is NOT a viable alternative for my requirements. Damaja Posts: Forum Member. Multiroom is ideal for those who want to watch different things at the same time without ending up having arguments about who wants what on the main TV.
For instance, my parents love soaps and stuff like American Chopper whilst I prefer to watch Sky Sports and movies - my parents detest sport with a passion, hence I could only watch what I want when they were out.
Sounds good to me. As for Freeview, my parents tried that and they prefered Sky due to the choice. Daveoc64 Posts: 15, Forum Member. System Posts: 2,, Forum Member. You used to be able to share a Sky card in the analogue days. I personally ditched by multiroom sub in favour of freeview.
I am surprised at the number of Sky supporters out there as I am sick and tired of the increases in subscription rates when all you get are repeats of repeats and just enough new programming to keep you hooked perhaps if I was a football fan I'd think differently!
It would not be unreasonable to be asked to pay a fee for a second card as with Freesat but why pay any more? Sky's digital platform is VERY secure so they can ensure that you don't give your mate down the road the second card so where's the logic in paying them twice for the same package?
Anyway, enough of my ramblings as I'm off to work now. I totally agree that its bang out of order I think you should be able to have as many cards as you want free of charge In fact, I've just written to Sky on several matters where I think their tactics are disgusting towards loyal customers.
Scandelous tactics, it wouldn't happen with a video recorder or Tivo would it? Firstly, please accept my apologies for the difficulties you experienced recently when you called us. I note how unhappy you were about the on-hold time that you endured when you contacted our call centre and assure you that we are trying to improve this service at present to provide a better service to our customers.
We currently have one of the biggest contact centre networks in Britain, with thousands of staff across two sites and five buildings. Clearly however there is still room for improvement and this is one of the main issues facing our management and executive teams. Your comments have been passed to the relevant department and hopefully this problem will soon be a thing of the past. Unfortunately, when a programme is recorded and then viewed at a later date, the package that that programme belonged to must still be subscribed to.
Unfortunately, the recordings you made from your movie package will not be available for viewing. With regards to our new package structure, I can advise that the letter you received advising you of our September price increase was included in you July magazine. Information regarding the new structure of our packages was included in this magazine. Your comments regarding the cost of a second subscription are noted, however I must advise that this subscription not only allows you to watch the same package content in a different room, it allows you to watch a different programme than the one showing on your main subscription.
I ask that you consider that, historically, to have a second subscription in the same household, the full cost of the subscription was required and we feel that we are now offering our customers exceptional value for money. I trust that this clarifies matters, however should you require any further assistance, please contact me at the above address.
Jarrak Posts: 18, Forum Member. Thanks STCuser. I wrote to Sky after receiving that letter and they didn't even reply to me - perhaps if you're on a basic package you're not worth the bother!
Got to go! Riddles Posts: Forum Member. Freeview is fine for those who can get it, I live in an area were the signal is far too weak and the analogue signal isn't much better so unfortunately I'm a captive customer. SCTuser wrote:.
Digi Man Posts: 17, Forum Member. Ive had the multi room now for a month and totally agree its well worth it. Small price to pay for peace!!! I agree with Alpha29 on this one I've been a Sky subscriber for 10 years and won't pay any extra to have TV on another set. One of the things that crossed my mind is analogue switchoff - all the portables will therefore become useless unless you buy a Freeview box for each one. Myself I'd prefer to use Sky around the house but don't see why I should pay again My opinion is that Sky is a company and like any other company their main reason to exist is to make money.
Quackers Posts: 4, Forum Member. I paid for the second box, and i have paid to view Sky One. I've already PAID! Quackers wrote:. It would be quite an incentive to get as many people as possible on to the top package and make them stay on it as they probably wouldn't want to lose the multi-room option.
Bruce Posts: Forum Member. Everything will soon change. BT are moving into "vision". Sky are interested in Home Choice. TW are supposed to be launching a 4-tuner box. Competition is hotting up. Sky will have to keep pace. And that's good news for the consumers. Different to how it's been for the last decade.
Bruce wrote:. Hope so Bruce. I think Sky have probably got alot of manouverability in their prices now and are in a very strong position than they were in a few years ago. Surely can't be long before we've seen the last of year on year price rises.
