Canceling Sky Package


Standard Member
Hello all, I am mindful of cancelling our sky package as we no longer have a great interest in the package as a whole, however as we do not have a terestrial aeriel and neither can we due to vicinity and obscred sight of transmission mast, my queerie is, can and will we be able to access bbc1, 2, itv, 2, ch 4/5 etc along with any other freeviw channels by using the sky box and dish or will all be lost?
Many thanks for reading

All the free to air channels will still work & the handful of free to view channels with the card left in.

You can fit a Freesat [satellite] receiver or general satellite receiver that will mean the channels will be listed without all the gaps you will have to jump over where the sky subscription programs are or you could set favourites to the start of each group of free channels to help skip over the dead channels.

if you fit a general satellite receiver that can allow you more free choice on other satellites later
