Quick Sky Pairing Question

Hi all, couldnt see my answer (i did search).

Right, I have just bought a Sky HD box off ebay. Called Sky and signed back up again, they are posting my card out.

My question is, I have activated my subscription at my rented house in UK, the box and the card will have to be paired yes? But do I have to get my tenants to pair the 2 or can I ask them to ship the box and card to CH and I can pair the 2 via Skype to Sky??

They dont have a phone line either, but from what I have read its not required despite Sky`s recommendations?

Cheers troops

Re: Quick Sky Pairing Question

If possible pair them in the UK, once they are activated fine and then ship.

You can pair them in Switzerland, get a tesco internet phone which gives you a 'normal' UK number in Switzerland. Then you can ring sky from Switzerland, you could use skype, but it is better to have a UK number with the same std code, as if you were 'at home' in the UK. No Pc needed, just plugs into your router.

www.tescointernetphone.com

Best model to use, without a pc.
Siemens Dual Phone
Model DP450

I got an HD box on Ebay and matched my card here.

I tried to set up Remote Record with the Tesco Phone and it came up error, despite dialing the number. I have spoken to sky several times using the Tesco system. Good also for friends and family.

Re: Quick Sky Pairing Question

Hi, OK I can live without remote record, I will ask the tenants to post the box to me, with the card. Can I ask them to write GIFT on the box to avoid import tax??

Thanks for your help, I just hope my landlord lets me put the dish in the garden :-)

Cheers
