A card will give channel 5 on the EPG, regionalise the BBC and ITV 1 channels to the postcode it was issued to, and if a valid FreesatFromSky or cancelled sub card (except for cards cancelled by Sky as being used "illegally" ) it will allow viewing of the FTV channels and also allow setting/removal of parental controls if you know the PIN linked to the card.

Without the card you will receive the FTA channels (those in pale cream) shown here
Sky UK on Astra 2A/2B/2D & Eurobird 1 at 28.2°E - LyngSat
Except 101 will be BBC1 London, 102 will be BBC2 England, 103 will be ITV1 West Midlands and 104 will be Channel 4.

The FTV channels with a card are some of the ITV1 regions (shown in pink), 5*, 5* +1, 5 USA, 5 USA +1, Pick TV, Pick TV +1, LFC TV, Viva, Motors TV and if an HD box Channel 5HD.
