      Can't access recorded programmes without viewing card??

      Hi,

      I recieved a new box today to access Sky Anytime + as I complained. My old Amstrad 780 box is now upstairs but no card in it...I thought I might have still got my recorded items but they're not there...

      ...Do I need a viewing card to access these??

      Thank you.

      Sky+ functionality is a subscription service ... so to use Sky+ functionality you have to pay the minimum subscription of 10.25.

      Why...

      Sky wins Sky+ box customs duty ruling | EWN Business

      ... all Sky boxes are television receivers other aspects of their functionality are subscription services.
