    I have a Sky DIgital box with a free-to-air card. I had a subscription to a pay channel for 1 year, which runs out v. soon. I have disconnected the phone line from the box.

    It seems to me that they won't be able to switch me off. Is that correct? Also as I no longer have a contract with Sky I am presumably not obliged in any way to plug the phone in.

    You cant have both! You either have a FTV card or a subscription card.

    If you have paid for 12 months then it is a subscription card. When your subscription runs out they will turn the card off using a satellite signal. It will then become a FTV card! You can disconnect the line after the sub runs out. If you do so before, you risk getting a nasty letter from sky. Apparently this doesn't happen very often with subsidised boxes but more often with a mirror sub. Don't quote me on that though. The risk is yours should you choose to disconnect before the 12 months is up!

    No, you misunderstand.

    I have a free-to-view card that I got from the BBC. Subsequently I took out a 1 year subscription to a pay channel. This has just expired (2 Dec), but I am still getting the channel.
