      I would have thought so but only after you contact sky and tell them your viewing card number along with your new box number and it should work. Otherwise I am not quite sure how Sky would charge people the 10 per month Sky+ subscription if your not subscribed to a sky package.

      well i thought there was no monthly fees

      doesnt matter though as i just learnt from sky that the boxes have went from 99 to 150, a complete ripoff :P

      mine didnt need a new card.
      was only fitted 2 weeks ago and the installer just used the old card which is about 8 years old.
