Is Sky doing a deal at the moment? All i have is a sky minibox and a freesat card, but since yesterday, I can get all of the sky channels including movies and sports. Is it just a mistake from sky that they will fix soon, or is it possible that I'm lucky and will get to keep them.

Sounds like a mistake, I'd be interested to hear of anyone else who has similar luck. :)

It is not impossible that they do these sort of things deliberately, as it shows people what they are missing, but it is normally the odd channel here or there.

A regularly reported freebie. You normally get a month or so to "show you what you are missing"

However Ive heard seversal instances where Sky dont actually tell you about the offer, so folks only get a couple of days when they find out on the forums! :-rofl2

It happens, and it gets switched off after a while. A somewhat cynical ploy.

Some people with a Freesatfromsky card got a free month in Feb. In March they got a letter offering them a sub at a special price. I didn't bite but I'm sure some did.

I'm still getting free channels! Have been making the most of the movie channels and catching up with all the films I hadn't seen!
Hopefully I'll keep getting them for a bit longer!!!
