Hi,
i ordered my SKY subscription on Sunday and was told it should activate within 24 hours The first day I had a lot of power outs during the day but it was left on all evening and up to 12pm today I still had no subscription channels.

I can get BBC, regional ITV, CH4, 5 etc but not the subscription ones.

Im in Paralimni, Cyprus and have a 4.2m dish (shared with other apartment).

Should they have come through by now? any advice greatly appreciated as losing my internet connection tonight and phone line & so difficult to ring SKY (which i dont really want to do unless i have to).

Do i have the card in the bottom slot?

Thanks

Hello,

normally it takes only some hours to activate SKY.
But I had the same problem, but I have phoned them nearly every hour untill they activate my subscription.
What signal quality do you have ? Which service do you use for the subscription ?

Thanks...

Greetings
Tim

hi, rang SKY and the tech said cos it was a card that hadnt been used for months plus the electricity outs, that was the reason and he was sending it straight away and should be through in about 4 hours. so i check tom.

not sure of signal strength but it didnt look that great, but i could get bbc, ch4,5 regional itv, so hopefully that shouldnt be a problem?

Dont worry about the signal strenght you see on the menu...Thats the default transponder 11778V which is only required to boot the box...We (installers) do not peak the dish to the satellite 11778V is transmitted so it shows up low on your menu..
If your box switches on & you get BBC/ITV you are OK..
