I watch TV just occasionally. I have an old Sky HD box without any subscription.

Now I want to take my TV to another room and I cannot take Sky box to that room.

What are my option if I want to watch free Sky channels without Sky box and without paying any subscriptions to any other service?
I am aware of Freeview but the free channels I watch are not on Freeview

My TV is not a smart TV so cannot connect to Wifi.

International channels such as ATN Bangla UK 779 just as an example
This is one of the free to watch channels, (

\you esy your not able to take the sky box, but can you get a cable to the other room?
Also how far away from the box is the TV you want to use?

The other room is about 7 meters away. I am avoiding moving sky box around because I dont want to move around the cables.

I am looking into Firestick which looks promising

Install kodi on your firestick, then an addon called TV One and you'll get plenty of options.


I use an Icecrypt STC3250CCIHD getting on a bit now, it is a free to air box, the electronic program guide is rather poor but it does receive HD so I can continue to watch I program I had been watching down stairs.

A freesat is much better EPG but rest is the same, so free to air bit of pot luck, but freesat should be same as Sky.
It's very easy to extend the satellite cables to your next room.... 4 connectors, 2 inline joiners & some shotgun cable. There are kits to do this on Ebay !!
