I have had sky here in Germany now without fault for the past 2 years. I still have a house in the UK and I pay through my uk bank account. The new software however seems to me to be part of a crackdown on users abroad. my digibox is non contract but I am now getting constant messages for me to plug it into the phoneline to get the full range of interactive services.Am I right to believe that this is part of skys plans for more interactive services which I couldnt access? i also note that sky is no longer accepting foreign credit cards for payment. Is it the beginning of the end for sky users abroad?
