Hi,

Before I waste my time on hold with sky, I figured I might be able to get some help here!  I've just moved in to a new property and am looking at ordering sky.  We have had naked DSL installed in advance of a full voice+data package (was using Snap BB on a telecom line at previous address and just moved snap across).  As I'm not sure on the voice activation date with snap, I would like to order Sky so we can actually watch some TV... Does Sky NZ require an active phone line before they would install?

Cheers.

No.
Only to book Box Office & PPV / On Demand through the decoder.

Awesome, I figured that would be the case but when they star the home phone section on the website, sometimes they actually need it.

Both phone and on-line booking works well. No need for a phone line. If they ask, just say you are using VoIP and don't have a phone line. Unless you want them to install a phone socket for you and you plug it in when the line is active.
