Hello All.

I have seen various questions similar to this, but not one that answers in totallity.

Once I have installed my Sky Plus equipement (in Romania) and inserted my current Sky viewing card, I will ring Sky and ask them to activate Sky plus.

My question is:
Will they ask if my box is connected to a phone and what should I say if they ask ?

Any advice that will esnure they activate Sky plus will be greatly appreciated ?

Cheers
Simon....

Just say no, as there's not much else you can say, they should still activate it for you, as we have loads of Sky + owning members who do not have their boxes connected to a telephone.

Thanks for the advice Rolf.

I will give them a call next week and see if they activate it for me.

Cheers

@Romulus

I have called Sky from my country (CZ) several times, last time just this past monday to have my card paired to a new box (Sky+) and never had any problems with it. Whenever I call I always suspend my outgoing number on my cell and it always works.

As to the question about the telephone line, you are not obliged to have your box connected to a phone line as long as the box is second hand a so is your contract with Sky - my case.

Let me just make a slight clarification here - If you have multiroom then BOTH boxes have to be connected to the phone line! Even if the boxes are secondhand....
