      Your box would need pairing with your viewing card.

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for the swift reply,

      Would pairing the box be a big deal, would sky have a problem with it, would they charge me.


      Thanks again

      just phone sky to pair the card they do it over the airwaves through the satelite no charge as you already a sky subscriber

      your tv programmes are postcode controled through the card so you will get all the channels that you get now
