I live in a flat which is pre wired with Terrestrial and Sky. I am not able to connect to the cable network which really sucks because I work for ntl.... Anyway my quetsion is why do Sky insist on the Phone line connection for the Sky STB? Is it to pair the Card and STB or what. Because I dont have , nor want a phone line yet as I get all the free calls I want from my Mobile. But Sky dont seem to want to sell me a Sky+ box if I dont have a phone line. Why, whats the big deal. I know everything still seems to work without it as I tried it on my father-in-laws STB. I wont even require an install fee, I'll do it, But Curry or Comet will let me buy one???? Apparetly I gotta have it connected to a phone line for a year. Do they try it on install. If I lie and let an installer put the box in and plug it into the dead phone socket will he know? I can just say the must be another outage today or something. Why???
