    Hi,

    I currently have Sky+ with basic family package but find that we only really tend to watch the channels that are Freeview anyway.

    I'm starting to grudge paying Sky for all those unwatched channels, but don't want to ditch Sky completely as I love Sky+. Basically I was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to downgrade my Sky subscription to £10 p/m month for Sky+ and still receive freeview channels via satellite eg BBC, C4, ITV, Sky News etc.

    I'm asking here because I know I won't get a straight answer from Sky.

    Thanks in advance for any replies,

    RDB :)

    Yes you can but as you have found out CS reps are in some cases unaware of this fact. You might need to get past the front line and talk to the line manager to get the package you want.
    Remember that a lot of the "freeview" channels are subscription on Dsat, might make a DTT alternative more appealing.

    If you want to keep the subscription going and don't want to pay for any package won't you only get the ' free to view' rather than ' freeview' channels ?

    I am looking at getting SKY+ as well but do you have the pay the subscription of £10/month - if you just want to watch the free to air channels.

    Yes, the £10.00 is to use the dual tuner/record features of Sky+. Without that you just have a digibox.
