Hello everyone,

I would like to thank you for the last answers from you.
I have another question about the Sky Digital Box. At the moment, I have a subscription, but when this subscription ends, must I buy a new Box as well ? I want to buy another subscription from another seller, because I get no connection to my current seller.
The most sellers say yes, because my old card is married with the box.
Is this allright ?

Thanks...

Greetings
Tim

Are you getting the box and card from a 3rd party supplier? ie not sky

If so he may be spinning you a line to get you to stay. Yes, if you get a new card AND you want the premium services such as sports or movies then the card will have to be married to the box - otherwise just the family pack (or whatever it is now) will only work.

Assuming you are buying from a third party sky seller then see what they do. It only takes a long wait in the sky queuing system and a short conversation to get the card married to the box, which your new supplier should do for you.

Cheers

Nick
