    Whatever you pay now plus the multiroom add-on which as far as SkyQ is concerned £12 a month, assuming its on the same package (think its the same cost as Sky+HD) as this work out considerably cheaper than having one account for the front room and another for the bedroom, assuming Sky will let you have this.

    We have just got Sky Q (2TB) and a 2nd box and will pay £12 more then we did for Sky+ HD.

    Charges for the content (Entertainment,Sports, Movies or anything else) seem to be negotiated separately from Sky Q so the validity of any prices for content may be different than Sky Q 18 month contract term.

    We only wanted Sky Q for the 4K content and were told we had to have a 2TB box to get 4K. From the reply above it appears we could have got the Sky Q 2TB without the 2nd Sky box for nothing.

    They insist that you take out multiroom to get 4K content which is actually only viewable through the main box (go figure).

    Thank you all.

    I've been quoted £120 for the HD SkyQ box + 1 mini box at an additional £12 per month.

    Has anyone achieved a better deal than this?

    I presume that's the 2TB box? If so do you actually need that or would the 1TB box do, you lose 4K content (main box only) and a slightly lower number of channels you can record at one time, you also "only" get the standard remote rather than the touch one. I think they'd only charge £20 for the 1TB box but this would vary. I'm a 10 year customer so can get the 2TB box for £20 plus the £12 a month extra (it's the £12 extra a month I won't pay for) through the VIP scheme. How long have you had Sky with out a break?

    Would your 2TB box require a visit by Sky to replace your 1TB box?

    We were charged £70 (and the £12 extra per month) for the 2TB box but that included a new dish, LNB (Hybrid) and installation for the new boxes.

    I'm on HD+ so they'd have to come out to replace the LNB at least. We only moved (and had a new dish and cabling put up) around 5 months ago so it would be simple enough for them.
