    I've just got SKY+ installed but don't want another sub for the old box.

    However it seems sensible if I can get a free view card to put it upstairs and get free digi tv upstairs - however I don't know/can't find:

    1) If this will work with my old sky digi box (grundig);
    2) Do i need to connect it to the aerial or sky digi dish?
    3) Where I get a card from.

    All help most welcome

    Thanks

    Dave

    You can get free BBC channels keeping it connected to a dish and using it upstairs or have a second dish at another sat location for European FTA channels. Lists of channels availble on the Astra site and digitalspy

    No card just plug it into the dish and select the channel BBC1 etc will all work as will BBC3/CBBC etcand a few others like TCM and the holiday and shopping channels.
