Multiroom is simply 2 decoders in the same house.

They will put a splitter in the satellite cable and take it to another room for you to plug a 2nd decoder in.

Sky will also charge you (I think 25.00 per month extra) for multiroom which will do what you want.

Not recommended if you're in Christchurch due to potential earthquake liquefaction silt soil contamination.

Multiroom is a 2nd decoder run off the same dish.  Each decoder can show whatever channel you want, they are independent of each other.

$25 per month = $300 per year.
A selection of childrens DVD's and a DVD player = one off cost of say $150.
