      Giving away old sky boxes for freesat?

      Hello, I was just wondering if someone can advise what happens when upgrading to sky+ (I did it so long ago I cannot remember).

      The viewing card, do we re-use it or get a new one?

      I ask this because if someone gives away the old sky box, if they have the card to it, this will enable the recipient to use it to watch Freesat right?

      What about ppv channels, will they still have access to them & if so would watching them put the bill on the original card holders account?

      Cheers,
      Mattylad.

      You keep your existing viewing card.
      Sky sell 'Freesat from Sky' viewing cards for 20

      If someone did acquire your viewing card, Sky can easily deactivate it.
