    Hi,
    I saw an advert yesterday from sky that they will be issuing new Sky cards to keep watching sky and the old ones will stop working.
    My situation is I've got sky Digital installed about 3 years ago and for the 1st year I had a basic package with them, and after that I stopped the package, but I still get all the free channels which are alot from the card I've got, When they do start issuing the new cards will I get one?? all though I've did not get any package from them for about 2 years.

    I think Sky are disabling the old cards after a couple of months. They want to give subscribers time to get the new ones, and handle the inevitable EPG bugs that go along with absolutely everything Sky tries to do.

    I'm not sure if Sky are disabling all cards, or just all cards with current subscriptions. If they disable all cards, I'm sure either Sky will furnish you with a new card if you call them (in the hopes that you might resubscribe), or a BBC FTA card can be obtained that will do the trick.

    Groan, such a basic question. I think you should read this FAQ page. I'm sure there are others but that's one I know of. It's a LONG information file so give it time to load.

    I assume that if the current FTA cards aren't compatible with the changes Sky are making to their system, there will be new ones out shortly. (if not already) Otherwise, a lot of people will suddenly be cut off.
