Thinking of picking up a Humax Freesat box as I barely watch TV, so coughing up for $ky needs to stop. Is there much in the way of FTA to add when using the the non-freesat mode?

Unless you go for the HD Freesat box, it will give you no more than you can get with your existing Sky digibox, in fact even with a cancelled card, you will get two or three more channels on your Sky digibox. Just make sure that you have your new white card upgrade before cancelling.:)

Kind of sad I can get more on a non-sub $ky box than I can on a supposedly dedicated FTA service.

Satelliteman: you're scary quick.

Cheers!

The Sky box will still work for he free channels when you cancel, so why spend money on a new box?

Well it is a bit annoying flicking through scrambled channels to find the FTAs.

Probably won't bother with any box. Innernets keeps me entertained with free telly ;)
