Does Sky box work after cancellation?


Active Member
I'm considering cancelling my Sky subscription and moving to Virgin V+.
If I do so will I still be able to use the Sky digi box (not '+' or HD) to view programs such as BBC and ITV?

I believe it will with a "FreeSat" card. About £20, IIRC.

An existing ex-subscription card continues to function as a Freesat card even though the subscription is cancelled.
As the OP has a card there's no need to spend another £20

Yes, Tobyfield said the same. You learn something new every day.

Thanks both :smashin:
