    I see that sky+ subscription is £10, or free if you take £10 worth of premium channels !

    Is it possible to buy a secondhand sky+ box, and then just use it (I assume not).

    I know that dual/quad LNB is required, so you'ld need to get a 'dish man' as well.

    But my real question is 'Is it possible to acquire all the bits cheap/used, and then sign up for just the subscription fee?'

    Thanks, ME

    You can get second-hand Sky+ boxes, but they're rare and fetch good prices. £199 for a box that is worth £399 is good value. The price is subsidised by the companies that operate the interactive services.

    hi,

    There's a V1 box for sale by 'Jackass' on the classifieds for £115 not a bad price although you can pick up a V2 box new from approx. £149 but can't remember where from.

    Cheers

    Mel

    That's just for the box - dish & quad LNB are extra.
