Sky Sports on Freeview

Hello,
 
Got sky in the living room with sports package etc and just got a new TV set up in the kitchen with built in free-view. It has Sky Sports 1 + 2 on the channel list but obviously can't use as there not free channels. Is there any way of linking it or putting in the viewing details of the Sky account so they also work on the freeview TV in the kitchen?
 
Cheers!

    I would seriously doubt it mate as Sky would want you to have multiroom to utilise their package.  I can't honestly answer yey or ney though...

    The only way to get sky sports through freeview is using topup tv.

    You would have to buy a subscription with topuptv and sky sports 1 and 2 would be £29.99 a month

    You need a card sharing box like the dream box or spider box.

    You could run a coaxial cable from your rf2 output on sky into your other tv and recieve the picture from your sky box, you would have the ability to change channels but both televisions would have to watch the same SKY channel.

    A big long coax cable, if you just want to get those two channels on in the kitchen while you're eating for lowest cost. Otherwise I think an upgrade to Sky Multiroom - doesnt seem much point paying £30 for subscription on a freeview box...

    is it our of the question to run a length of coax between rooms? I have done this myself, its cheap and straightforward.

    Could do I guess mate but the amount of use the kitchen tv gets isnt much. as what it does is mainly watching freeview channels - whether sky was available or not.

    fair enough, it can be a hassle running cables inside finished rooms... I flood wired my downstairs with all cables I might ever need the last time I had the floor lifted to renovate.
