Re: More Freeview HD Channels on the way
As others say FIVE HD is FTV where you need an active Sky Viewing Card to decrypt FIVE HD - that doesn't mean you need a Sky subscription just and active card. It's rather like the soon to be launched BT Sports which will use the Sky Viewing Card to authorise your subscription without any need to have a Sky/BSkyB account - thats because ownership of the Sky Viewing Card and the associated database of users is held by a third party and not directly by Sky. If you remember the early days of BBC on satellite the Beeb also had its own method of adding authenticated users to existing Sky Viewing Cards without using (actually positively avoiding) Skys Call Centres.
