      Wrong Sky Card In box Ring 08700 But number is not working

      Hi and thanks for reading,
      i bought a sky box off ebay the flow design ones because my last one packed up.
      i am not a sky subscriber well im staying with my dad and he not had sky for over 5 years sky sports etc.

      Anyways when i plug in the box all the Free chaneel worked but i notice when i was flickering through the channel non subscription channels i got message saying wrong sky card for box ring this number so i thought i might as well but the woman on the other side goes its no longer in use. 08700 50 50 45

      Im not really bothered but i was thinking sum times Asian TV Channels give like a freeview like Geo TV Star TV give 15min freeview period at 9pm will i be able to see this i know i got the message when i went to check Geo TV so i just wanted to know if it is effected by this.

      p.s This is a standard Sky Box not sky + etc.

      Is it a blue card or a white one? If it is the blue one you will have to change it for a white one as the blue ones are obsolete. Sky charge 25 pounds for this, it gives you access to all the freesat channels and lasts for 3-4 years. the 0870 number you are calling is also obsolete, call 08442 410 595.
