Well rang sky to take advantage of the 3 months free multiroom. Thought it would be a good idea for the bedroom so sometimes me or my partner can record & watch programs at the same time etc. But I heard about the recording issue paying $15 to enable this so I asked about it & yes after 3 months not only would it be $25 (we have HD ticket so would be $15). It would end up being $40 ($30 HD ticket) if you wanted to record. I asked about having the older HDI machine installed but it wouldn't matter as they can now stop the recording function on all decoders. I've not seen this in any of the small print either about this recording revenue/function.
So with that hidden REVENUE thing about paying $15 to have the record function enabled I declined in the end to have this installed on principle. I said it's part of the machine's feature & should be enabled free anyway. But you know Sky. They don't care.
So if you were a new or returning customer you are going to be stung with an extra $15 to be able to record? Just appalling.
