why should I pay twice for sky services because I live in two properties?

I currently have Sky Stream in two properties and have to pay twice no only for each package but also for skipping ads and UHD. Why cant I just take my puck with me and plug it in??

Because it would be a breach of the Terms & Conditions you've agreed to by taking Sky services.

 

You cannot takenmyour boxes from one address to another at random.

Like you I'm a customer here, Sky Employees are clearly identified as such.

Sky is a per property service and always has been. That's why a Sky account has to be registered to the address the service has to be used in.

Hi @Tueie 

 

As others have said this is Sky's business model and part of the terms of service you have agreed to. Sky use technical measures to ensure that services are only being used in the location they should.

 

More info here: https://www.sky.com/help/articles/use-of-streaming-tv-subscription-outside-your-address

 

Sky can impose additional charges on your account or restrict your service if they detect a breach.
