using friends sky viewing card?



morning all

i have sky however my parents stop subscribing many moons ago, however i tried using my friends viewing card and it works to a certain degree in that now I have skyone etc etc, however when i change to the important channels: sky sports, it comes up on the screen 'this is the wrong viewing card for this set top box' it then gives a helpline number to call.

is there anyway round this? i havent tried phoning the help line cos i know they'll tell me to stop being so stingy and just pay the fee. any ideas?

Nope you've got to get the viewing card paired to the box and pay like the rest of us :D
Unless like me you cancel HD and end still waiting two weeks for my normal account to be renabled but thats another story .....

As smiffy said, the card is 'paired' to the box so you'd have to ring to get the card paired to your box...
