    If I cancel my subscription, but keep my card and box, does anyone know which channels are left for viewing? Can't find anything on sky.com (surprise, surprise).

    All my kids ever seem to watch are the Simpsons and cartoon network (and a couple of documentary channels). I have the movie channels as well but I've seen em all, so i end up renting a DVD which is then on SKY about a month later :confused:

    Seem a lot of money to watch cartoons.

    Maybe I should just get the bog standard pack.

    Cheers

    Might just try that. didn't think the box would work without a card. From following Starburst's Link (thanks) it seems there are some channels - like 5 - that need the card, even though they are free.

    Probably just end up cutting back on the subscription I think.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    That's probably a good idea. I originally had the full subscription, but pared back to the Family Pack after I realized how bad Sky Movies were and how much I was paying to watch a handful of programmes on Sky Sports.

    I recently scrapped my sub entirely, but I was pretty satisfied with the Family Pack while I had it.

    Hi,

    I currently have my Sky card de-activated and get ALL BBC's,ITV,c4,ch5,sky News and 2 music channels, plus a few other free ones which i never watch.

    You dont get any of the cartoon channels apart from the BBC one.

    So i guess you would need to keep paying sky for the cartoons and stuff
