Sky & phoneline

Why are Sky so fussy about having your phone line connected?

I've ordered a new multiroom card for my spare box, and they're insisting I connect it to the phone line, else I'll be charged.

I said I'd do it if need be, but was there any chance I could not bother just for that box since it'll be a hassle to run a cable, and I already have my HD box and other multiroom box connected to the phone line.

But they said it must be done.

Just wondered why they're so bothered about it.

They insist you have it connected via a phone line to prove you have it in the same house. Else you could install it at a relative's house who dont subscribe to Sky and they would get your subscription package for the £10 cost on the extra multiroom card.

And they are keen on the phone line,with multiroom they will send you a letter to reinstate the phone line,or you will be charged 2 sets of subs.The box needs to make call backs every so often to prove you have the box at the same address,as norvell explained.

Nothing wrong with Sky's request for multiroom, its there way of checking you are using correctly for the subsidised price as highlighted above.
