Pairing an Irish Viewing Card with Sky+ Box in the UK


Established Member
A friend has moved over from ROI to Scotland. He brought his box and Irish Sky Card (which he still pays for via his Irish account and registered to his house in Ireland) and it works fine here.

He has a Sky+ box in his new house and obviously would like to use that.

He has a very good deal on a full package in Ireland but, more importantly, wants to retain the Irish channels.

Now I know the card will have to be paired with the Sky+ box and the recording feature activated - can this be done calling from the UK? Can the box dial up from the UK?

Could we call with a mobile instead? Or would we have to get someone in ROI to call up?

call sky via a mobile to pair the +box to the card, stating that he still is in the ROI, don't connect the box to the phone in the UK as it has to be connected to the registered phone number, you only need the connection for interactive services and buying movies, not pairing the card.
