    Hi guys..
    I have a question, how do hotels setup sky/tv services so that you can receive multiple channels in your room/tv without a sky box in the room?
    Thanks in advance guys :)

    It's akin to having multiple Sky boxes all outputing on a different RF channel on the same cable

    You will need one Sky box per channel you wish to go to the rooms.

    Therefore if its more than 4 channels you require, it will be cheaper to put a box in each room and give them full access to all channels you subscribe to.

    At £10/per month per box......................plus the cost of the boxes, plus the cost of the octo LNB and associated cabling...........

    The second quote surely also applies to your first quote, thats why I suggested if its more than four channels required, you may as well put a box in each room for access to all channels. Instead of having 5..6..7..20 boxes at extra £10pm per box.

    Apologies, I was thinking along the lines of "hotel" setups where the couple of Sky channels available are FTV. The cost of having all LNB cabling going to one location and a single RF cable from the boxes location to each bedroom would be less hassle than individual LNB cables to each room .

    PS Also, the viewing cards would be secured.

    Is this a domestic or small commercial/business installation?
    Different prices and terms apply
