Question, if u phone order a box office movie or prem plus event, sky then activate that channel for you, but does anyone know if you need to have the phone line connected to the digibox in order to recieve the movie/event.

As far as I am aware all the phone line does is send info to sky for payment at the end of every month. So no you dont have to have phone line connected but you won't get any updates till you connect and then they will hit you with a bill.
Your PIN number is what lets you view the movie/match

my box is never connected to the phone line and I have prem plus.
You just can't order with the red button - I think calling for PPV movies is more expensive so makes sense for people....PP is same price however you order (a season ticket)...

I live abroad ( and subscribe via a UK address) Therefore I dont ahve mine plugged in to the phone - EVER! (been subscribing for years so not in breach of contract on that score))

So what would happen if I rang to get a movie on?

I'd go rent a DVD to be honest ;)
but I've phoned from abroad to the automated PP line and suppressed my own number without a problem :)
