    Firstly, happy new year everyone!

    I'm just wondering if anyone got any tips for getting discount on Sky Multiroom, looking to get Sky in the bedroom as the signal in the area is poor on a portable Arial.

    They are no longer providing HD+ boxes for new customers, so it's unlikely that they will provide matching multiroom boxes, especially with a discount , even though you are a current customer. Any stock they have will cover people who have the service already.

    Since they are currently pushing Sky Q mini-boxes as a replacement for Multi-Room, I doubt you'll get any discount on a new Sky+HD set up in another room. As already noted, new customers don't even have the option of Sky+HD anymore.

    You might be able to get a discount on Sky Q and minibox, but it will doubtless tie you in to a new eighteen month contract.

    You could always get a magic eye and run an aerial cable from your box to the other TV. Itís a bit of a pain and not quite multi room but it is free and works quite well.

    You'll unlikely get a discount.

    Multiroom is £12 per month.

    You may get a discount on the cost of the mini boxes buy you'll need to ask and not expect a yes

    We used to have this in the kitchen - works perfectly if you can ignore the cable from the main sky+ box to the kitchen tv.

    We now have SkyQ and it's much better .
