Sky TV cables

Sky always complain when the skybox is not connected to the phone line.
Whats the best setup to use?
I drew a nice picture as an example:

As you can see i have 2 sky boxes to connect.
I think it needs to go into where the phone goes (with an adaptor) but i dont want 20 adaptors hanging out trying to get everything in.
What kind of adaptor/setup would best suit me?

Re: Sky TV cables

One of these then?
Or a four way adaptor.

Re: Sky TV cables

Links to multi socket adapters given by others,but...
Are you sure the Sky cables are terminated in RJ11s?  If so, Sky should have supplied RJ11<>BT plug adapters as they'd expect you to be plugging into a standard NTE5.  If they haven't then you'll need multiple adapters to convert plug type along with socket triplers etc... 
May possibly be neater to chop the plugs off with a foot or so of cable attached and then combine the Sky cables and one of the plugs using a junction box?
