What does SKY's FreeSat card (£20 version) offer that is different from an out of contract SKY subscriber card?

Any different channels?

Any drawbacks / plusses for buying the new card and dumping old Blue card with Yellow house?

Hmm, now what seems to be the problem?

The only plus to buying a new 20 pound card is to sell your existing ex subscription card for 50 quid,as the new card is good for 2/3+ years......there may be features available on the new card to subscribe to Film4 or other independent stations...the old FTV cards could not do this......but dont hold your breath................

Why will someone still pay fifty squids for an ex subscription card if they can get a FTV card for 20 squids?

I suppose people abroad without UK contacts would still be prepaired to pay 50 quid on ebay. I have seen some dealers trying to sell the new sky freesat cards for 70 quid on the net!
