    Hi :thumbsup: i am new to the forum although i have been reading for some time. I noticed an advert at the top about cheap sky cards which are for europe. When i read the ad i got slightly anoyed that i pay the full rate and the europeans can get a full year for £120 which includes all normal channels plus movies and sport.
    Technically can they be used here if you say got a new box with it. Other than the ethical implication that is.

    i figured they would have a way round it thats why i asked about getting a box with it, which they advertise saying the card would be matched to the box.
    thanks for your advice.

    if you read the small print i am sure you will find you will only get the free channels without paying more.
