Vodafone with Sky Multiroom

Message 1 of 21 (434 Views)

We currently have 3 x Sky boxes in our house, and I'm looking to get rid of them as we are paying ~$150 per month.

 

I have purchased a Vodafone TV unit outright, haven't used it much yet, but so far so good. I've registered it under my regular email address.

 

If I buy another Vodafone TV for one of the other rooms, do I need to register that unit with a different email address?

 

If I had three Vodafone TV units, and I wanted to get the basic Sky package on all of them, is that three separate Sky subscriptions?

 

I did see mention of a multiroom option, but couldn't find anything on the Vodafone site.

 

Apologies if this has been asked before, but similar posts seem to be related to older iterations of Vodafone TV.

 

Thanks, Paul.

In case you haven’t found it, here is the website suggested by johnr:

Have a scroll through to find info re multiroom with SKY. Basically it will cost $25 per extra box and will link boxes together under one email address, this was meant to be launched tomorrow (25th Nov) but has been delayed, I'm not sure when the new launch date might be now.

 

Any updates from Vodafone?

Hi all,

 

Just came out of the Go/No Go for multiroom. We have 3 bugs that need to be resolved before we can go live so this will be delayed (hopefully only) one more day - probably tomorrow evening.

 

Regards,

 

James.

Any update James? Would be great to have multiroom available for the weekend, as Vodafone TV is on special, and I'll probably buy a second unit!

@hammerpaul68 I'd say we are on to release today but there is still a few hours of regression testing to go. Hoping to make a decision around midday.
