Im curios to know how do satellite dealers in spain manage to get sky cards? Well what i mean is, iv gone to one of these shops and they have told me that they have the cards allready? and they just need to activate them---- I know that u can order a sky card from a uk address and ship em out but have seen bunches of these on their counter,,,how is this so

They still could be Freesat from Sky cards. As these can be upgraded to full subscription cards with the necessary phone call.

As far as I'm aware, if you have a UK adress and buy a freesat card from Sky, you just ring Sky up and say you want to subscribe.

Unfortunately, if you are not in the UK you can't do this.

But I imagine these dealers, IF they are able to get people the Sky package have access to one.

But if these are FTV cards and you got them from a Spanish (or wherever) dealer and you want to start a subscription, the cards are still registred at an UK address with who ever ordered them in the first place!?!?

I'm just wondering who some of these sat companies can distribute full (UK and Irish) sky subscriptions (albight for a hefty fee) to non UK/Eire residents? I could imagine that some of these have thousands of customers subscribing through them...

I would imagine that they have a pool of UK addresses of some sort that they use. The details of which are probably kept very close to their chests.:)
