    Guys

    Just about to move home... and before i ring up Sky for their huge moving cost.. a couple of questions..

    I have Sky+, plus 2 extra boxes... Do u think Sky will charge a one off moving cost, of 99 quid to move all three connections or 3 sets of cost.

    And where do we stand on the Dish?.. is this ours, the new buyers or Sky?.. Do i take it?

    What do you think?

    Not a great help for you but - I recently moved and fortunately there was already a dish in the new place - I was initially concerned whether my SKY+ would work or it would need re-registering or something - but I moved in and plugged in and I was up and running again..

    (Must admit tried to speak to SKY before the move - and I reckon it was an Asian call centre who were just reading info straight of their screens - bloody useless and drove me crazy - I gave up and just prayed it would work when I moved in - luckily it did)

    my girlfriends dad was in same position as u. and it was expensive.so he done my idea :devil:
    if your over your 12month period cancel ur sub.
    then call and get sky in ur partners name (or whoevers name it isnt under at mo) and get a fresh install with multi room etc and get 3 months half price and all the rest of the blurb,
    ul get a new sky+ box plus another 2boxs for ur multirooms.tell the engineer uv got an old +box u brought off ebay or something and wire that up as part of your multiroom
    when the installs done for you give sky a ring and tell em uv brought a 2nd hand + box and uv put it to one of your multi rooms and to activate features (they may not even be disabled??) your old sky+box is your property after 12 months anyhow so they cant say anything about it.
    so for £45 ul get all new boxes inc warranties plus 2 +boxes and your first 3 months half price which will cover the cost of the sky+box, so ur move will work out free plus ul have 2 +boxes which im sure will keep the kids happy if one box is for them, not to mention keep thye kiddie junk off your own box lol

    oh and another thing
    if you have a good friend/relative who has sky and would love sky+ but dont want to pay for the box get em to recomend you as a new customer when ur doin ur move etc and they will get a free sky+ box too

    so for £45 too laid back ul be getting:
    1. free move and install
    2. a free sky+ box for a friend/relative too
    3. 2 sky+boxes
    4. free multiroom install
    5. new warranties
    6. and 3 months half price which will prob cover the initial outlay of £45 in the 1st place which means ull get 3 sky+boxes in total plus another standard box, move/install for free! and ul make ur friend happy too (well untill live pause breaks ;) )
