Hi, I am wanting to get Sky+ installed as a new customer. However I have heard some nightmares about the quality of the work from the Sky standard installation. We have recently done a lot of work to our house and really dont want cables run through our house by the skirting board or directly in to the front room from outside. What I really want to do is do a cavity drop from the loft to the point in the living room (house is a bungalow) where the TV is. I spoke to our local aerials and satellite guy and he cant do a Sky+ install for less than £250. Obviously this is nowhere near as good a deal as the £99 + first 3 months half price that you can get direct. I have also heard that most of the Sky direct installation guys will not go in the loft. So what I am thinking is when the guy comes, he can fix the dish and drill a hole in the loft. While he is fixing the dish I can run the cable in the loft and pull it through the cavity drop. I have already installed a back box with a blank faceplate and run a mouse ready to pull the cable through. I can then just drill holes in the blank face plate and pull the cables through he can then attach the connectors that fix the two cables to the box Which is what I would assume he would do anyway if he ran the cable himself? Later on I can worry about putting a proper face plate / connector to the wall Has anybody done anything like this? Do you think the engineer will be up for doing this? I am thinking it shouldnt cost him any extra time, if anything it might save him a bit Thanks in advance for any replies.
