    I am a new member and not technically minded so please make allowances.

    My question is: I currently have basic sky (not sky plus/HD or anything) which I have connected to my telephone landline.
    I have a second landline in the house which I am going to use exclusively, that is; the line the sky is connected to will be discontinued. As the second line (one to be retained) is upstairs in a study it is not practical to run a cable from the box to the sky box.
    Will I be breaching my contract by not having the connection made through a telephone line? (I am not in the first year of a contract), or is there some method of connecting without the need to run a cable all the way from the study.
    I should add I never use the interactive services I believe the telephone connection is there for.
    My telephone provider is BT not Sky.

    Thanks in advance.

    Malx.

    Ditch the phone connection, it is not required.

    Unless you ever get sky multiroom the telephone connection is not required

    Hi and welcome to the forum.
    This is what you signed up to:
    "at all times from installation to the end of the Minimum Term, your Box will be fully and effectively connected to....a fixed and operational telephone line"
    "Minimum Term - the 12 month period commencing on the date of installation of the Digital Satellite System at your Address"
    Sky Terms and Conditions - Sky TV

    Correct, and that's the reason for the condition - which most people ignore anyway.
