but you need a dish and have to pay for a box too

you might as well just pay 12 a month and get the basic sky pack, with all the music channels etc

although im thinking in the long run 150 + price of box etc, would be cheaper than paying monthly etc etc

sky say you need to be connected to a phone line, in truth, you only do when the dude is setting it all up, they normally unplug it and say "you dont really need that plugged in, only for box office or porn"
