Two Sky contracts in same house

I have just started renting a house from a relative who lives overseas. They have a Sky contract and have their box and card abroad. I also have Sky (multiroom) and also have my broadband and phone line with them. I haven't started renting my place yet so it is still live there. The reason I haven't moved it is in-case Sky flag up there is an existing contract there and cancel that one leaving my relative abroad with no sky.
So what I'm asking is are Sky likely to care that there is two contracts "live" in the house, will they ask questions or are they likely to switch one off?

If there is extra money, to Sky, involved there should be no problem.

The house was converted into two flats, wasn't it?

This was what I hoped to start with.

They will see an active account already at that address and wont allow two to be running from it.

Although I thought this was probably the case to stop people doing exactly what I was going to be doing.

Cheers!

Would have been too easy, now to come up with a solution.

Cant you add multiroom to your relatives account and pay them rather than sky.

Pray tell how both boxes are going to be connected to the same phone line - an extremely long phone extension cable perhaps?

But then if they're happy to pay for two separate subscriptions, then just setup the multiroom and pay twice? Only problem I can see is if they want different subscription packages.
