Satellite viewers who don't subscribe to Sky but want to carry on watching terrestrial channels ITV, Channel 4 and Five on Sky Digital can now order a new viewing card. cost £23.50 for residential viewers or £105.75 for commercial use (clubs and pubs) and can be bought by telephoning 08700 541800.
Will they ask loads of questions?
Is the card matched to the box?


cheers

No they won't, as long as you have a UK address to receive the card and they will apparently take a non-UK credit card.

PS. Moved this to the general Sky forum.

I believe that the P1 card I've been using to watch C4 and C5 ( the only channels available here in Rome..) is not matched with my digibox bought on e-bay, because of that I'm bit reluctant to go for the on-line procedure as I understand that the card I will receive from them will be matched with the digibox of my old P1 ( I think so because they don't bother requesting the s/n of the digibox )
Should it be the case do you think that the new P2 card will work on my digibox ?

Go for the 0870 phone number approach Ameolive, as long as you have someone with a UK address you should be OK.
