    Guys,

    I'm just about to get Sky + and have a question about my existing
    sky card / box. I have used up all the credit on skybox office and have not plugged it back into the phoneline since. What I'm basically asking is: When my existing skycard gets transferred to my Sky+ box which will be connected to a phonline, will this then charge me or is the credit stored inside my original sky box which will remain disconnected from the phoneline?

    I wonder if its stored on both :( ??

    Cheers


    :confused:

    Your existing smartcard will need to be married to SKY+ and then the SKY+ functions will need to be enabled.
    Both procedures will be done by the installer, the first using the SKY+ phone line the second by a phone call to SKY.
    As soon as the connection is made the SBO/PPV data (Stored only on the smartcard) will be sent to SKY and you will get the bill a few weeks later.
