Last question of this auction on trade me 236734646, surely sky must lose 10's of 1000's of dollars worth of stuff, with the likes of people nicking there dishs and hardware and filicking it on trade and the likes, has sky ever done any one for nicking there stuff. And who in a "realistic terms" own's the dish, lnb's once mounted on a house. It a common thing that people move and take the dish with them with the intention to put it up at there new house and cant so then they get sky to do it.

Probably but do they really care?
For example, the house I am living in at the moment already had a Sky dish on the roof from the previous owners.
I got Sky installed on one of their free installation deals last year but my TV is in a different place to where the old owners had theirs.
So rather than moving the old dish or running a new cable, the tech put up a new dish!
Didn't worry me and now as it happens I am using the old dish again and not the new one with my HTPC :) and I don't even have Sky any more, just using their dish for Freeview!

I don't think Sky really give a hoot about the equipment, they are mainly focused on subscriptions.

I have had similar experiences to CYaBro, had a dish installed (cheaply by Sky) in a rental property we had for 4 months , then when we bought again just re-used dish and LNB from previous owners - moving our own STB each time.
