I rang Sky to ask for a second subscription...family package....coz I want to take the card to Spain with me in my own Panasonic DSB30. I told them I didn't want their box etc...and they agreed my box did not have to be connected to the phone (I didn't tell them about Spain of course). They said they'd send the blurb etc for signing....£15 per month..not bad I suppose. Anyway this morning a new P2 card lands on my doorstep...nothing to sign and no new agreement!! Question is...do I stick it in my Panny and fire it up.....will I get charged.....or will my original card (which I have in Sky's own box..and which I need to keep going in the UK) be canelled?? Any ideas?

Hi Andyb, it may well be that they will automatically add it to your other payment, don't think I got another contract to sign when I got mine, but it was a long time ago.

There shouldn't be any problem with firing it up in your second box either. :)

Extra Box Terms and Conditions


Under your extra subscription you will receive the same subscription channels as you receive under your first Sky digital subscription. You must be a Sky digital subscriber at all times during your extra subscription. Minimum extra subscription period is 12 months (unless your first subscription ends earlier). You must keep the digiboxes that receive your first subscription and any extra subscriptions connected to the same fixed and operational telephone line at all times. extra subscription charges must be paid by credit card or Direct Debit.


Thought this might enlighten you Andy.
Regards

It will definately have to be connected. Too many people have tried and failed. Whoever you spoke to mad a mistake, believe me!

I had the same thing happen. If you put the card in a box it won't work. It'll just display the message "call SKY to authorize card" in doing so they know you want to use the 2nd card and charge you accordingly and send you a contract.

Methos.
