    Hi,

    Hopefully someone who is a bit more up to speed on Sky services can help me with a few queries.

    I really like the idea of being able to record digital programs using Sky+, but at the same time was thinking of getting rid of my Sky subscription. This is because just about everything I watch is on BBC or C4 and I grudge paying for the other 200 odd channels with constant adverts, crap programs and lack of widescreen etc.

    So my ideal situation would be no Sky subscription apart from the £10 a month Sky+ fee, but still able to receive and record the FTA channels.

    1. Is the above possible? ie, would Sky allow Sky+ without a subscription to their programmes.

    2. Would Sky provide a viewing card. If not how would I get one.

    3. Would I still get the onscreen schedules and program synopses.

    4. Er........a step by step idiot's guide to achieving the above wouldn't go amiss :blush: :blush: :blush: My current 12 month minimum subscription to Sky is over so I can cancel anytime.

    Many thanks,

    RDB :)

    1) Yes it is possible but 99.99% of CS staff are unaware of the fact.
    2) Your existing card will act in the same manner as a BBC FTV smartcard after cancelling your package subscription.
    3) Yes
    4) Ring the SKY+ phone number and explain what you want.

    Thread on DS covering this subject.......SKY+ sub only

    Thanks for an excellent reply Starburst. Just need to scrape together £250 for the box now and I can go ahead.
