Simple it's not but possible it is. All he will need is a Sky box, 4 way splitter with 2 inputs depending on if we're talking about SKY+. Some cable and the jobs a good un.If you want to avoid the splitter then just look to see if your LNB your dish has 4 outputs. If you have SKY+ then the possibility is high. And just do what's been suggested above which is to run the cable from the dish it self. Neither are hard as long as you got some DIY common sense.There are other avenues which can also be explored but that will be digressing from the ops simple question.

do you have to pay an extra tenner a month for each room (£30 in your example) or isit just one tenner for the multiroom service full stop if that makes sense

ye you would need separate digiboxes otherwise when u change the channel on one it would also change on the other tv(s)i think thats rightand to those who have legitimately got sky in 2 or more rooms, with separate boxes, what is the price structure like per month?

thats not a biggy for me right now, as long as sky itself is in my room.

All about the motorised dish with a Dreambox. To link up the other Dreambox's in the yard it's just a ETHERNET cable ting.Had to prepare that setup to take over from when Vermin disconnect all the dodgy boxes very soon. With the dreamboxes I just change the tuners still. From cable to satelite ;)

For the people asking how much multi room is, its £10 per month for each room.

While we're on the subject... They're offering me half price for 12 months. Where's the scam? I want Sky Sports. That's all. Am I really gonna be paying £18 or is there some dodgy sh*t somewhere? I'm thinking they might say I can only have the basic package for half price and then pay the full price for the sports which means I'll only save £4.50 a month. What ya think?
