    Good day.
    Ive just cancelled my Sky subscription and have been informed that upon the termination of my service I will no longer be able to use the record or catchup function on my HD box.
    My question is, what are the alternatives to enable me to continue to use these services? Do I need to purchase additional hardware?
    Go easy, Im new here.....haha

    You can only watch on your sky HD box,you can pay £10.00 per month to view your recordings.

    The £10+ sub will only allow recording and playback of FTA channels and only give you access to BBC iPlayer on the catchup services. You would get a lot more of them with a Freesat PVR subscription free.

    Hi and welcome to the forum.
    For less than the 120 you'd get a good FS machine.

    And your cancelled Sky subs will likely fund that in a couple or three months.:D

    Thanks. That's exactly the answers I was hoping for.
