    You will need one normal Sky box per room in addition to your sky+ box.

    I'm assuming you've already got a Sky box so you'll need one more Sky box?

    With a Sky+ box and a normal quad LNB, the maximum number of boxes you can support is three (the sky+ needs two feeds). If you need more than Sky+ / 2 multiroom boxes, you will either need an Octo LNB or a suitable multi-output LNB switch.

    If you need to be able to watch your full Sky package in the other rooms, you will need an additional multi-room subscription per room (£10 per month per box).

    You will also need to upgrade your Sky package to Sky+ (another £10 per month unless you already subscribe to two or more premium channels).
