      Freesat From Sky - Replacement card - How long?

      (New user here and realised I'd put this message into the wrong forum so please forgive me re-posting it in the coreect forum.)

      Hi,

      I have a Sky box but don't subscribe to Sky (Freesat from Sky). I have been getting pop up messages every hour or so telling me I need to replace my card and that if I don't I will lose certain channels. I went to the URL they gave (Replacement Freesat Card) and purchased a new one for 20.
      They said I would receive an email confirming my purchase which I haven't received, but the money was taken out of my account a couple of days ago.
      How long have I got between seeing the messages on screen (I bought the card the first time I saw the message) and the card not working any more? and does anyone know how long the card takes to come once they have taken your money?

      There's no phone number for Sky on the web page only a link to send them a message...

      Thanks tsu.

      Usually 3 or 4 days after the money is taken.

      They managed to take the money from your account. They always seems to get that bit right. I just bought one and haven't got the email confirmation either. Maybe it will appear in my inbox soon.

      As this post is over 6 months old, I would think the poster got his card. Do you expect them not to take the money until after they send your card? You have to pay for any item before you get it, so what's the difference?

      Congratulations on your huge post count. It always freaks me out how anyone can spend that much time on a forum. I was attempting some light humour that's all. If you can't understand the joke, then maybe you should spend less time on here and more time living in the real world.

      If you look at satellites.co.uk, there's a guy there just like you who is the first to answer every new post. He also has thousands of posts to his credit. I really wonder about you people. Are you kind of permanently wired up to the forum 24/7?

      Congratulations on your huge post count.
      Thank you, being disabled and retired, I have plenty of time to spend on this forum and a couple of others, helping out where I can.
      You are right though, I did not see anything at all humorous in your post, except maybe the fact that you made it. If you want to attempt humour, try using smilies to make your intentions clear
