    Yes you can do this, I think the card is £20 from SKY. You can’t record anything though unless you pay them £10 /month.

    He probably meant the channels which are free on SKY.

    You may need to buy a £25 viewing card to get it to work, not sure if your old one would work-ours did until they ‘updated’ them

    Hope this helps.

    Sky and freesat are the same – boxes and all. Just a different card controlling what you are allowed to watch.

    However Sky+ won’t work.

    Last time the Sky “engineer” left, as a passing comment, he said that we could use our Sky digi box to watch freesat once our sky subscription has expired. I assume that this means that the viewing card is invalid or had a stop put on it.
    Is this true? Anyone had any experience. We have several good digi boxes, a 4 way LNB on the dish and it would be nice to run freesat in the bedroom. The idea is to save buying a freesat box really.
    Your experiences gratefully recieved.
