Hi all,

I currently have Telewest digital TV , Blueyonder + Telephone package.

I was thinking about changing my TV to SKY while still keeping the telephone + internet package with Telewest.

Will Telewest come for the STB if I cancel the TV package??

If not , can I still get the basic TV channels from the STB? e.g BBC +ITV

Ta :thumbsup:

The Telewest box remains the property of Telewest, unfortuantly they do want it back from you if you cancel their services or they will bill you for it.

When I lived in Bristol they came out to collect it and in Bristol I had to send it back myself.

however as part of the cable liscence they have to carry analogue 1-5 on the cable infrastructure so while STB goes back you can just cut/pull the F connector of the telewest cable and fit an aerial plug and use that on TV's internal tuner...
All becuase Mrs Thatcher didnt like aerials and dishes on roof tops.....

Thanks HD - Didn't know that. I'll give that a bash tonight with my old portable in the bedroom (crappy coathanger aerials)
