    Hi,

    Keep seeing ads on Ebay and the like for these old Sky cards (one with picture of a yellow house on the front) that promise free access to all the free to air channels. Just wondered if anyone knew if they really do give free access to all the freeview channels

    Cheers

    If you use the search facility you will see loads of stuff about this.

    OK I guess I was being a bit lazy!

    Anyway I've had a search around the older posts and it looks like "Freesat" is what I'm after.

    I cancelled my Sky subscription today so does that mean that in 30 days my current viewing card will just work as a Freesat card or do I still need to ring sky and shell out £20 for a Freesat card?

    If you cancel, then Sky always knock your card down to a 'Freesat' card - so you can view the FTV and FTA channels. Did it myself two months ago.
