      Include viewing card when selling Sky+ box?

      Hi all,

      When selling a used Sky+ box, should I include the viewing card or not?

      I assume I should not leave my old viewing card in the box (I've cancelled my Sky service), and that whoever buys it will get a new one from Sky. However, I'm not sure that's how it works, and I don't want to cause any problems for whoever buys the box.

      I searched the forums, but didn't find any posts relating to this question. I apologize if it's been covered and I missed it. Thanks in advance for any replies.

      The viewing card is not your property, it is Sky's. Do not sell it on.

      if the card is back to the fta channels only and the sky card as been canceled ..then you can sell it on with the box as you can bump up the price off the box as it as a working fta card ...the only way sky wants the card back if you not paid the 1st year contract then you have to give the box back and card .. or in extream terms there want the card back is you done fruad or anything for scurtiy off the card eg copy

      hope that helps .. just make sure its all paid upto date and your cancel your 1st year contract..
