      Re: Anyone have a Freesat Card and SKY+?

      well my box here does not have a subscription and i can record, although i only have a single feed so can only record 1 channel, the one that is viewable...

      Can someone just confirm something, can you add premium subs ie setanta sports to a freesat card? or will i have to have a minimum sky subscription to watch setanta sports on SKY?

      Paul.

      If its a previously used card (from a Sky+ box) then when you cancelled they may not have removed the PVR entitlement.
      There is no p in Thomson.

      Paul.
      So long as the card, even a Freesat one, has been paired with your box, yes, you can just add Setanta via their site.

      Re: Anyone have a Freesat Card and SKY+?

      Just another Quick Question: Yesterday my Old Sky Card Started Showing Channel 4 and Channel 5.. Didnt really check any other channels, does this mean my SKY card is operating as a Freesat Card?

      Would There be any Reason why i could`nt subscribe to Setanta on this card?

      Its the card i used to have Multiroom on until i cancelled it when i moved home
      Thanks Paul (Blue Card, Yellow House)

      Ps. It was paired with the box before cancelling Multi-room

      Yep, it's now working as you surmised, as a Freesat card. Otherwise, same answer as above.
