    Hi all,
    This is my first post. When you read on you will see I am a complete novice.
    I am thinking about cancelling my Sky subscription ( for the expense of it )
    is there way around still receiving Sky channels via Freeview ready TV or set top boxes
    an example ...... ( Skybox F5S Satellite receiver )
    On such a receiver .....
    Can you receive sky channels ?
    Can you live stream other channels ? ( eg sports channels )
    Can you record using these boxes ?
    How do they connect to TV ? A scart lead & aerial perhaps ?

    If you are interested in what channels you can legally get without Sky then it might be worth editing your message.

    Or merely take your viewing card out of the Sky digibox - then by surfing through the channels you will see all the FTA channels you can view legally with generic FTA boxes such as the Skybox.
