      Viewing card & multi-room

      I have a second sky box with no viewing card, so I dont get the FTV channels.

      Where can i get a viewing card from??

      Could i subscribe to multi-room, just for one month, then cancel??, this way i get a (almost) free viewing card.

      I'm guessing i dont need to enter into a 12month contract as I already have an installed 2nd box.

      Maybe theres an easier way of getting a viewing card?

      Re: Viewing card & multi-room

      If you wanted to, You could get yourself a FreeSatFromSky card (about ~20 from Sky or another dealer) this would enable you to view all those FTA and FTV channels. That is a one-off payment, No contract etc.
      However, Thats all you would get! If you are subscribed to now (or in the future) a Mix (Entertainment, Documentaries, Style etc) to be able to watch it on both boxes, You would need to get a multiroom subscription. Hope that helps.

      (Although the site is outdated (channels need updating)) This is the main site: freesat from Sky - A new way to get free digital satellite TV

      I think 20 for a card is a rip-off!

      So i pay 4 all the equipment and installation, then they want another 20 off me for a card!

      This is not the way to compete with freeview! where i can get a box for less than 20!

      How long before all the channels become FTA?? and when will E4 and more4 be FTA or FTV on satellite??

      Sky would be far more popular as a second TV feed if more channels were FTA.

      The cards aren't produced for free. Someone has to pay for them, in this case its you. Its hardly a ripoff. 20 seems very reasonable to me. Sky don't make any money from people watching free TV. They are a payTV company!

      Thats right it costs sky huge amounts of money to produce these cards.

      We should be thankful they are only 20.

      Thanks SKY for once more putting the customer first!

      Anyone know when Channel 4 is going FTA?

      I cant wait, then i'll need to pay 20 for a viewing card to watch SKY3. Bargain.

      Sky don't make the cards they buy them. They also then have to pay the supplier an annual fee, per card. Once again I'll point out Sky are a payTV company. Don't want it, don't pay.
