Sky for Belmayne Apartments

Post by fasteddie » Fri Mar 19, 2010 8:02 pm

Got a letter in the post from Sky yesterday that Sky and Kpm have struck a deal to bring sky to apartments they will put one dish hidden away on the roof somewhere and that will supply the whole block through a signal or cable!!

I think you missed the point.....

Thats great news fasteddie, in my opinion Sky's service is much better than any other television provider. Sky has a better selection of channels at a competitive price that you can control, no need to be paying for channels you would never watch. The plus box is excellent also.

Not missing the point just happy with what I have! Ok the presentation could be better but all I wanted was get all the sky channels so I could watch the films and the bit of sport Its only costing me 97 Euro all in including unlimited phone and broadband and I like it that I only get the one bill for it all. The service has improved as well.

Delighted for all you Sky dish fans and this cuts out the need for a dish on the side of the apartment so its a winner all round.

I dont get this sky dish carry on, at the start we could not put up a dish because it would be a bad image so when sky and kpm struck a deal to put one on the roof i thought they would be hidden away !! But they put about 6 of them on Churchwell mews all on the front of houses and facing the road!!!
Just makes you think what was the problem in the first place!
Its gone from one extreme to the other they are putting endless amount of them up!!!

Houses in Belmayne where never restricted from having Sky dishes, only apartments. KPM can request that the dishes be taken down but other than that they cant do anything about it.

Just more on your bill :lol:
Outside the apartment block somewhere you will see a grey box they run the wires from that!!! They blend in with the brick work so you cant really see them!

Agree the Grey blends in very nicely to the building but the black wire is a discrace its only at the start of the loop and runs up and down the down pipe and across under the windows and in time will become saggy and unsightly. Ide invite anyone to look at it in my front before you could say its a good job. PM ME IF YOU WANT THE ADDRESS WHERE YOU CAN VIEW THIS MESS.

I came home to my apt a couple of weeks ago to discover that one of my neighbours has kindly put their sky dish on my side wall....! I can see why they might have done it as my apt is on the top but it at least would have been nice to have been asked before they went ahead with it.... !! anyone else have this happen to them?? (i am on churchwell drive).
