I bought Microsoft Office and used it on my old PC. When the PC broke I bought a new one and would like to install Microsoft Office on it but it says I need to uninstall from the old PC which doesn't even start up . Is there any way I can remotely uninstall my Office subscription from that one, so I can install it on the new PC?

No you can't. You could try speaking to Microsoft on 0344 800 2400.

This is an extract from the Microsoft rules on transferring Microsoft Office.

" If the old computer is completely "dead" or permanently retired you do not have to uninstall Office as long as you know it will not be used"

Of course, if it is OEM, you will not be able to install it on your new PC.

Yes, it does say that in the article.
