      If you do cancel SkyQ you have to give the kit back. I assume they don't mean LNB as well!

      Re: Sky Q New LNB Freesat ?

      The standard sky q lnb will not be backwards compatible, so will not work with any current freesat or sky+ equipment.
      The lnb, along with dish and cables are not subject to the equipment return as stated in your sky q 18 month agreement.
      There is a hybrid lnb that can be requested at ordering time.
      More detailed discussion and some docs showing the new hybrid lnb is available on the sky help community forum;

      The WB LNB is not compatible with any other system only SkyQ but....... if a customer is viewing other subscribed services in another room (bedroom for example) then a Hybrid LNB can be used as well if the dish is being used to feed multiple STB's in different flats, houses for example.
