Cables & Installation

Hi

Im looking to change to Sky,the cable that runs from my Virgin point at the wall runs under my floorboards to my Router & V6 box in my chimney breast,Will sky run on the same cable? Or will it be a new cable that’s needed? Just want to know if my floorboards are gonna need ripping up for new install

Re: Cables & Installation

Unlike VM which uses one cable Sky Q requires two cables, so VM's single cable isn't sufficient anyway.

Re: Cables & Installation

Sounds like a lot of mess ripping up floorboard just for switching to Sky.

If you also changing internet then Sky router will connect to the existing Openreach phone socket. .

Personally I found Sky TV better so have Sky TV and Virgin internet...its a personal choice 🙂

Don't cry over Virgin price increase instead speak to retentions team and negotiate a better deal.

I had Sky TV and VM internet as well, then Now TV sent me an office I couldn't refuse, who are basically Sky TV anyway, so I just use Sky TV without the box and installed the app on my TV.
