SKY SUCCESSFULLY INSTALLED

Postby ardleystar » Mon Nov 20, 2006 9:42 am

Have just had Sky successfully installed here in Vlas. Mansell supplied me with a 1.5 metre dish, Pace Sky Digibox and Sky viewing card. The process was very straightforward with an initial site survey, to decide on best location for dish, a few days later it was installed and within about five hours was up and running. For my part I merely filled in a direct debit for Sky, paid for the supply and installation of the parts and that was that. So apart from BBC and ITV, I now have access to scores of English channels.
Was rather sceptical about the whole process in the beginning, as Mansell had received some fairly hefty criticism, but now I can highly recommend him to anyone who's considering this home entertainment option. I'll be uploading a photo of the dish installation, so prospective buyers can see what's at stake.

Cheers

Ardley

Hi Ardleystar
can you receive the live footy ? Can you pay for it 'pay per view' ?
thanks

Total installation for dish, digibox and viewing card was 950 BGN or circa 340 GB pounds.

You can if you subscribe to the optional ' Sports Mix ' package,

Not sure about ' pay per view ', which for a premiership match costs 8 GB pounds, OUCH!!!

Funnily enough, I had thought to have awnings installed on the balconies and terrace, glad I postponed it till next summer, because the cost for that balcony's one is about the same as the Sky installation.... 8O

hi

to be fair to mansell it is very difficult to site a dish on some apartments , i was lucky i,ve got part flat roof on mine ! :)
what did it set you back then howard ?, & how long have you had it & have you had any serious rain / snow since it was installed ? i need to know how reliable it is before i can amend the advice given to members !

regards,

mark
