Just about to have my spare Sky+HD box I've had from a couple of years ago wired up into my newly built extension as there will be a second twin cable from the (now) quad LNB from the dish (other twin cable goes to living room for main sky box/tv) but dont want to pay for multiroom so need to know re possibility of watching any free channels on it.

Do i need a FTA card ? - Whats the cost

or

IF I still have my old viewing card can i contact sky and use that ? - Whats the cost ?

What channels can I hope for ?


Cheers

Simplest solution is to try it!

a) Without any card at all
b) With your old expired card.

Or.....you could look on the internet.

It wont record because you are not paying for this or any "additional" feature on this machine.

You can pay sky £10.25/mo for the recording feature, but for the same price you can have full multiroom features as well.

Hi.
If you're only after free channels, there's no reason you couldn't use a Freesat PVR in the extension.
Costs more upfront, but will record quite happily...

can you explain what this means please? I'm a mega newbie and want to find out what options are available to me which allow me to watch free channels via a sat dish and record them too. I'd been previously told I can only do this by paying sky monthly...

thanks for the link- will be useful...

can someone please tell me what a Freesat PVR' is (referring to my precious question?

is it something that will allow you to record without paying sky?
