- Will i still get freeview if i cancel my sky
I'm fed up with giving any more money to Murdoch, so I'm cancelling my Sky sub too. If you want to keep the sky box, as l45key said, you need to pay £25 for a viewing card that allows you to watch free-to-air channels: http://www.freesatfromsky.co.uk/faqs-freesat.aspx#q3
If you want to keep the Sky+ functionality, you'll need to pay Sky £10 a month.
Alternatively, keep the dish and wires, ditch the box and get a Freesat box from Humax that does all the same stuff. http://www.freesat.co.uk/
I'm looking at replacing my Sky+HD box with the Humax HD PVR that's £200-250. Plugs straight in, does the same stuff and will pay for itself in about a year.Posted 7 years agohelsMember
It depends where you live – I have a free (well it was then) BT Vision Box so I get the freeview channels that they have bothered to broadcast in my Digital TV only region. So not many. I think of it as "council tele". But I can record series like a tivo, so really it's "council plus".Posted 7 years agoandytherocketeerSubscriber
😯 @ £25 for a card and £10/month to continue using $ky+ box for freesat/freesatfromsky channels. With numbers like that, cancel, go to leccy store and by a Freesat PVR and plug it in to the same LNB cable(s). Plus when you cancel, Murdoch and co. come grovelling with some special offers which may be enticing.
My "el-cheapo" 40€ sat box from aldi can happily receive all BBC, ITV, C4/More4/E4/Film4, Five (just none of the red button nonsense).Posted 7 years ago
