Hoping someone can offer some advice as i'm new to these devices. I have seen advertised on several classified sites along with ebay etc a "Loaded skybox f5 12 months" The listings all end up saying the same thing that: For 12 months I get all the listed channels unlocked and free to view beyond the initial payment. It doesn't take long to do some maths and realise this is far below what I would of paid if I had a monthly subscription to sky for these channels, hense alarm bells ring. I'm aware of other boxes such as sky italia and calco boxes where you are paying for a full 12 month subscription upfront, but clearly this is not the case here as sky never offer a "take this channel but not this one" deal from their packages. Can someone shed some light on the true legality of the preloaded skybox f5/f3 sales on both websites and classified adverts? Are they a genuine legal product or do they hail from the "this guy in the bar sold me this box" area? Thanks in advance for any help.
