Currently have MySky in the lounge - with the Movies package (normal movies channels) and HD ticket.

I rung up Sky and asked for a quote for Multiroom - but upgrade the other rooms decoder to another MySky unit.

 

The lady quoted me:

$25 a month (normal decoder rental)

$15 a month (mysky upgrade rental)

and a one-off $49 installation

 

She also confirmed that i already am purchasing the HD ticket that i don't pay for a second, and since i have subscribed to Movies in the Lounge, it comes complimentary to the 2nd room decoder also.

 

Can anyone confirm this is a correct quote?

 

Cheers,

Stephen

It appears correct AFAIK. There may be an option for the up front (one off $600) fee instead of the $15 a month for the MySkyHDi.

Good point!  I think they provide the HD ticket as 'complimentary' with a multiroom setup.  That is certainly the case with going multiroom from digital to mysky + digital.  So you should be within your rights to no longer pay the $10/month HD ticket. 
I was about to say surely they aren't cheeky enough to charge for an HD ticket for each MySkyHDi box, but we are talking about Sky here!

Yep when we had MySky HDi and a MySky 1 we didn't pay the HD ticket, have upgraded to 2 HDi STB's still do not pay the HD ticket, with the exactly the same monthly multiroom payments as before. We went for the $599 deal on both and didn't pay for installations, they also upgraded the LNB and wiring to both STB's while they were there.

Ok, well i'm not really in the position to payout the $599 for the decoder, a bit strange that they are still going to charge for the HD ticket if you guys are correct.. i will google it, and possibily give them another ring back.

When I asked the CSR about getting the 2nd Mysky hdi, they told me I would have to pay an extra $10 a month for the hd ticket, even though I was already paying the HD ticket on my first HDi box.

ie, HD ticket price = No. Of HDi boxes x $10.

It was really getting a bit too much.

About the original post, the $15 is not for an HD ticket but rather an ongoing fee for the HD set top box. I'd rather pay the $600 as a once-off instead of paying $15 per month ongoing. In less than 2 years you will save $15 per month (or waste $15 per month).

yeah i hear you but considering you dont even own the box at all - what else if something comes up soon - like a newer mysky box - you'd have to pay out again - or swapping to Tivo - again, another big purchase!

I didnt want to invest in something I dont see long term..
