Just about to install Sky Multiroom ... HELP

Became an Infinity customer and saw HD free for a year on BT Sport.  I had a standard Sky box (SD).  Didn't invoke BT Sport for free on my SD card.  Instead decided to upgrade to Sky HD+ and keep the old box in a mutiroom subscription before giving over my Sky card number to BT.  That is, use the HD Sky card to get the BT Sport in HD.

 

Now I read all the angry posts about multiroom and BT Sport ...

 

Before I go ahead ... have I got this right ... BT will deliver BT Sport HD for free on a single Multiroom Sky HD card?

 

I don't want to go to all this expense and then find that BT can't access Sky multiroom cards Smiley Mad

There is no 'multiroom card'. When you sign up fot bt sports you just give card number of hd box and that is the one that will get bt sports Your other box will not as there is no multiroom for bt sports t present

Re: Just about to install Sky Multiroom ... HELP

Thanks imjolly,

 

I wasn't sure whether the Sky multiroom system being "off limits" to BT made individual cards tied together under the system inaccessible to BT.  If you have a premium package like Skysports, both cards carry it.  I was wondering whether Sky's reluctance to open up multiroom subscriptions to BT was based on Sky's inability to put one premium package on a card tied to multiroom without it going on the other card automatically.  Or conversely, multiroom only works if both boxes carry identical packages.

 

Has anyone got evidence that they are going to receive BT Sports on one box in a multiroom subscription yet?

The lack of multiroom from other forum posts is down to BT not Sky. When you order bt sports thats why you need to supply your sky card number

The other posts suggest that BT are being barred from the multiroom system ...
