    I was going to say, if Sky is adamant you need a landline, it may be worth asking an independent installer instead. Try TV shops, aerial shops and the like, they often do these. You may end up paying a little more for installation but the chances are you won't need a landline.

    Well i thought that, my parents have had it since the 80s and they never needed it even when they went to sky plus and all of my friends too didnt need it!!! I phoned Sky about 18 months ago as we had an offer at work for £5 a month for 12 months, they just said if u dont have one tough luck....the sky website says u must too........i may try asking them again directly see if there is a way around

    That's weird because I've had Sky for years and although I have a landline, I never need to connect it and it wasn't a prerequisite when I signed up. Are you asking Sky themselves about connection, or an independent shop who provides Sky installations?

    Assuming you have a broadband, you can get tesco internet phone (pay as you go) with phone adaptor. This you can use to plug inside sky box.
