My Dad is looking at getting multiroom for his bedroom but I need some clarification from someone at Geekzone, who has multiroom, for advice on the pricing.

Now this is the way I interpret the pricing to be with both my subs and the planned multiroom hookup.

My subs - $48.01
Multiroom $25.00 + subs $48.01 (a month)
Total: $121.02

Now will the second receiver actually pay an additional $48.01 a month or will my monthly subscription cover both receivers?

It's just your subs plus $25 they don't charge you a second $48.01

Multiroom copies whatever you have as the main subscription. So in this case gives you a second copy of basic for $25. You do not pay for basic twice.

What he said.

If you have MySky (on at least one of your decoders) and Multiroom, you get the HD ticket free also.

I'm not sure it copies exactly.  

I had multiroom but never received the premium sport channel on my 2nd decoder. 

So, you only get the basic package on the 2nd decoder .  Unless they changed things in the last couple of years. 

Eventually i cancelled multiroom and replaced with a cat6 extender that works beautifully.

I'm now considering cancelling sky completely too.   But, the rugby....do I or don't I!!

It copies EXACTLY unless it was not setup right which sounds like your issue. Eg. If you have soho on main its on multi, no soho on main not on multi.

You should get the exact same subscription on both. I do.

The only difference is if the multi-room box is a non MySky box. Unless Sky have changed their policies, you normally won't get the pop-up HD-only channels.
