      I want to leave Sky TV and get a Free Sat !

      I have had my Sky TV Dish for a years now, but i would now like to leave !, is it easy to do, i suppose they have to given a bit of notice etc. where would i find out ?

      I am considering just having Freeview, for which i will have to get a new stronger aerial, LOL, but i have also heard of Free Sat, can anyone tell me, can i use my exsisting Sky Dish for Free Sat or does this dish still belong to Sky, and to get Free Sat i would have to purchase a new Dish ????

      If someone could point me at the easiest and cheapest alternatives i would be very pleased indeed, thanks.

      You need to give 30 days notice to cancel the TV, remember, if you also have BB or SkyTalk, this will also be cancelled as you must be a TV subscriver to recieve these.

      Once cancelled, your Sky receiver will continue to work but as a FreeSat receiver so no need to do anything else, happy days

      Say what you want on here. We don't mind.

      NTL was the days when then were good, before VM rebranded them. At least they still seem to be for you.

      I have no complaints with NTL at all, except for one thing that i only realised recently, i have free phone calls to most land line numbers, i was rather miffed to find out that 0845 numbers ARE NOT FREE !
