      In need of help

      Hi all, I need help of someone as I do not know what to do lol I have got a sky subscription at home, and a static caravan away from home I was thinking about getting a sky box and putting my card in it when I go there, someone's told me it won't work because my card is registered to my box only.

      is there anyway round this or anything I could buy or do to get sky in my caravan ?

      Your card will work in the box, but only for the free channels and only if you have a satellite signal. If you take your house box with you you will have the full range of your card, plus the Sky+ features, provided you are connected to a dish and receiving a signal.

      See Iv been told some old sky boxes work with all the channels I pay for, I just want to take the card back and forth rather than my box because other people use my caravan when I do not go so they will have no tv lol

      Hi Nathan I think that you've been mis-led, in order to watch Sky's subscription channels you need a viewing card. The reason for this is to stop what it looks like you are trying to do - let someone else watch Sky by using your account while you continue to watch it at home.

      Another option is to get a freesat box for your caravan guests and take your box and card with you whenever you use the caravan.

      There is an outside chance you could pair the card online while you are away, then change it back when you return. You could try it just before you go to make sure it was going to work. Activate my channels on line - Activate my channels

      I see, my mistake.

      That's actually an interesting idea for the future, carry a personal card or ID code that you can put into any receiver and it self activates, rather like computer and phone systems in 'hot-desk' office spaces where you take settings and services with you to different locations.
