  • What parts of my Sky equipment do I need to take with me to the new house?

    • Everything, except the dish and the cable which runs from the dish to the box. 

      Take all of your scart or HDMI cables, all boxes, power cables, remote controls, Broadband routers, Ethernet cables (the grey cable that plug in from your broadband router to the phone socket and, if you’re not wireless the yellow cable that runs to your PC ) and microfilters and your viewing card(s). These viewing cards can stay in your set-top boxes. 

      If you have told us you want to have Sky in more rooms in your new house you should also keep handy any new viewing cards we have sent you. The engineer will need these to complete your installation. 

      You will need to take your television.  We know it sounds obvious but we can’t connect your viewing if the engineer is there before your TV.

  • Will I need Landlord permission to have a dish installed?

  • Is special equipment required to install Sky at my new home?

    • Moving your Sky equipment to a new house is just like installing Sky at a property for the first time. The engineer will usually be able to complete the job using standard ladders and equipment. There are exceptions, usually caused by accessibility of the dish on your property. To make sure the engineer can complete your installation on their first visit, please check if any of the following apply in case we need to use specialist equipment: 

      1. Your new property is a tenement block with dishes in open view. 

      2. You live in a flat or apartment with no dishes in open view. 

      3. You live in a property where the dish is/needs to be more than two floors high.

  • What if my new property is a flat within a block?

  • What if I have scaffolding on my property?

  • What if my new home has cladded walls?

  • I am moving to a new development, or a conservation area where dishes are not allowed what can I do?

    • More than half a million buildings in the UK appear on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. Planning permission from the local planning authority may be required to install Sky in a listed building or within a conservation area. Any alterations may be subject to special conditions (such as the use of certain materials). Please confirm that permission has been granted before arranging your Sky installation. 

      Alternatively, you can still subscribe to Sky Broadband and for a subscription can watch more than 30 channels online, including Sky Movies and Sky Sports available via Sky Player so you have the option to choose to view via the internet; this is a fantastic option if you have an internet TV or an Xbox to still allow you access to some of your favourite Sky TV programmes.

  • I am moving to a new development and there are no road signs yet do you need extra information to find me?

  • My Sky box does not work at my present property what do I do?

    • No problem, we can book a move and service visit for you at the same time. Your Home Move is free and there will be a charge of just £65 for the service visit if you are out of warranty, this will ensure a repair or replacement with a new three-month warranty.  Please tell us that your box is broken in the additional comments box on the online booking process.  

      You might also want to consider our repair plan. For more details see www.skyprotect.com 


      If you tell us about your broken equipment in the additional comments box, one of our Home Move Team will contact you to chat through the options. If you don’t let us know in advance then the engineer won’t be allocated enough time or have a replacement box allocated to your job.
