      Upgrade from freesat

      Can I upgrade the Freesat from sky card I currently have in my box to a sky entertainment package or would I need a new card.

      We currently have a sky package at our address but I want to upgrade the freesat card, I don't want a multiroom subscription or any thing like that just a second package, this box is not connected to a phone line .

      Any advice would be helpful.

      Cheers
      Ray

      If you mean you have one box which has a Sky subscription and another with a Freeview from Sky card, then no you can't add packages to it. What you can do is take out a multi room subscription and then you will have all the packages you have on your existing box. If your existing box does not have Movies or Sports, I think you can get multi room Lite for 5 a month.

      if its going to be a multi room sub then i think you also need it connected to a working phone line, ie one they can dial into so a micro filter would also be required

      Perhaps you should have read the line that says ,
      I DON'T WANT MULTIROOM.

      But thanks for the replys anyway.

      That's why my first sentence was this -
      If you mean you have one box which has a Sky subscription and another with a Freeview from Sky card, then no you can't add packages to it.
      Which I think answered your query.

      Would you like to explain how you did it and what it cost? I am sure there are many who would be interested.

      Re: Upgrade from freesat

      Certainly, Rang sky on08442 410 971, asked them to upgrade my freesat subscription to the basic sky entertainment package, confirmed that I already had a Hd package at this address but that the additional subscription was for the granny flat at the bottom of the garden, too remote for a multiroom subscription and no phone line. New account was set up using same contact detailsand card arrived 2 days later.
      Card is now activated in a sky+ box purchased from ebay for 1 and all works well.
      Sorry its taken time to reply been away on holiday.
