    Can Windows 10 be permanently offline

    I have two Win7 machines that are permanently offline : a video surveillance machine and a media player. I intend to upgrade these to Win10 - but I am wondering : Once Window10 is activated, will it run ok if it's offline permanently ? I seem to recall reading something that Win10 needs to phone-home few months, otherwise it will de-activate ?

    Can anyone confirm or deny this ??

    Windows 10 does not require an internet connection for anything. An internet connection is purely optional.
