    Help me please!

    I'm looking to get Sky+ for the main room and 2 other multiroom boxes for two bedrooms.

    Question 1: Do Sky do a Sky+ and 2 multiroom deal? i.e. would it be £10 per month for both multiroom boxes?

    Question 2: At the mo, there's only 1 bt phone box (in the main room). I presume I can connect all 3 boxes to the one line? However I don't want to run phone extensions all over the place, so does anyone know how much it is to have 2 new bt phone boxes (on the same line) fitted. I can't seem to find it anywhere on BT's site (but that may be me!)

    Cheers for any help/links.

    Ok to your first question - It would cost your £10 per box, so if you want to that's an extra £20 on top of your normal sky+ package, so if you have the full package you be looking at £61pm. You might wanna consider just having one multiroom and doing a 'Tv Link' to the other?

    2nd Question - You will need a seperate box for each box, unless you want cables going everywhere. To install a new box is very easy and all you need is telephone wire and a telephone box, and open your 'master' box and stick one of the leads in and carry that upstairs, then get a JB and take off 2 leads one for each bedroom. Just plan it in advanced and you can't go that far wrong.

    Thanks for the reply HTGUN. BT boxes, seems the best idea to me.

    Regarding the TV Link, does that allow all 3 boxes to be on different channels at the same time? Only reason I ask is that this would be a required at times

    No it wouldn't. A TV link only controlsw the box from a remote location. To watch different channels in each room you need seperate boxes.
