Buying a sky+ box.

I have a standard sky box and a basic sky package. If I buy a sky+ box privately do I have to tell sky and will I have to pay them anything?

Thanks

John

sorry about double post double clicked mouse by mistake

Is it likely that the twin lnb will just slot straight in the arm on the existing dish and without realignment?

yes i think so i upgraded and all they did was put in a new lnb and paired the card

I assume the 'pairing' is just a quick call to sky?

Sky have some really good offers for existing customers. You can probably get a Sky+ box and new LNB installed by Sky for less than buying second hand and installing your own LNB/coax (plus get a 12 month warranty and the latest spec Sky+ box with larger HDD). Look at the Sky website before you buy.

I'll have a look at the sky website.

when I got my Sky+ from Sky last year all they did was take the card from my existing box and put it in the + box. It worked with no other alterations.
