    Hello Peeps

    small question, is it possible to purchase a SKY HD card (subscription) as a new customer without buying a SKY HD box.

    I've purchased a box from a a reputable dealer on ebay and now would just like to get a card.

    any ideas, pointers would be welcome

    thanks in advance

    There is nothing special about the card, when I upgraded from a SKY+ box to SKY HD I just moved the old card over and asked for it to be activated, they did so and I now pay £10 extra a month for the pleasure.

    A call to Sky to upgrade your card or for them to send you one if you have not got one, they don't care where you get the box from

    thanks for your replies.. i'm actually in The netherlands and have purchased a skyhd box in the uk, I did have sky+ out here but the company has gone "belly up" I cant really call sky to upgrade my existing card for obvious reasons, so I'm asuming I can order a card on a UK address and they'll send me a card. Do I have to give them the serial number of my box (purchased from an authorized dealer) ?

    thanks

    You'll need to get the sub card sent to your uk address, then activate it in the uk using the callback facility, then have it paired with the digibox where ever you like giving them the version and serial number from the services menu (option 4, option 5).
