      2 weeks all channels free question

      Hi all,

      I'm wondering how Sky gives you free channels - is it via the phoneline?

      I ask because a chap sharing the same dish doesn't have his phoneline attached yet he got the same offer too..?

      Sky activate the channels on your viewing card by sending a signal to it via the dish, if you take it out of the STB then you will not get the channels.
