Re: Sky+ installation

Lob: Maybe we should write a Sky outside UK FAQ

From what I can read in several forums, Sky will not activate a sub on Sky+ and HD unless they get a callback fiirst. You could always try, but chances seem to be very low.

The best and safest thing is to actiavate it in the UK. It doesn't matter what caller ID it is activated from. If done, take box and card to Switzerland. As far I know all agents do it like this.

If you call them, the best is to use a VOIP service like sipgate. This will give you a UK number. Never admit that you are outside the UK.

Some people claim, that Sky is getting bitchy about the phone line, even on fullprice boxes. I personally doubt that. Even they should not there should be ~10% of the subs outside the UK. I don't think they want to loose that much money.
