Hi where PPV is concerned....if a friend buys the PPV event at his house can he bring the box and card to another house to watch and does it need a phone line connected? or is there any gotchas to watch out for

Not sure my tomtoms bust
Don’t know for sure but the purchase is authorised over the internet now. The ip may be logged. I doubt they would be too bothered if it happened once but a vpn to the home address of the box may get around any issues.

Might be worth a test before the main event?

I don't know what is it like now but before ours was never connected to a phone line and we always got the PPV so i doubt the phone line is of importance but that was a long time ago.

peoples IPs change every day so i doubt the IP is importance. My IP changes multiple times a week, dont think sky would make so much trouble for themselves especially since most people buy the PPV event days before as it is cheaper or at least it was.

Just dont plug out the card and put it into another box as that will cause issues.
