You might get a glossy magazine every month, but what do Skyreally think of your custom?
"Give me a f**king name on a direct debit and it's mine for life," - Sam Chisholm, former boss of BSkyB.
Perhaps you responded to an offer like the one blow that promised a gratis Sky+HDbox (for new customers taking their first Sky+HD package) with free standard set-up
But you were so excited with the thought of a £50 M&S voucher that you didn't think to follow each of the little daggers and little stars to quite read all the terms and conditions:
So, your twelve months of commitment are over and, for reasons of budget (or politics) you have decided you want to keep all the features of Sky+ - live pause, high definition, extended electronic programme guide, series record, and recording two programmes at once whilst you watch another - but don't want to fork out every month on top of your TV Licence - and you still get hundreds of free TV channels
Then reconnect the cables: the mainspowercable (1) - but not to the wall just yet, screw the two satellitedish links (2) and (3) and connect the HDMI cable (4) to your HDTV. If you had one, reconnect the digital audio connection (5).
If you have an Ethernet router, you can connect it to the Freesat+HDbox at this point (5).
I currently have no arial and am so reliant on my sat dish.
I'm currently considering buying a freesat TV (not a freesat box) and was wondering if the same cable and connector is used from the sky dish LNB to the TV as I currently have to my sky box?
Thanks for the site - i've learned a couple of things already (and i've researched this topic for my father in law previously).
hi, i'm thinking about not using my Sky+HDbox anymore and to use (freesat built in on my tv). How can i still use the same LNB & the two core cable, (to one Core Connector on the tv). Is it a case of you only need to use one side for this to work..??
Or.... give 31 days notice to Sky to terminate your TV contract with them, and pay £10 each month thereafter to receive FreeSat from Sky with a FreeSat EPG and recording facility on your Sky+ box - with no Contract commitment.
If you also have Skytalk telephone line and Sky Broadband you can keep this and continue to pay the subscriptions for these services in addition to the £10pm. If you don't have them then you may have to pay a one-off £25 fee for a FreeSat viewing card.
SKY will probably offer - as an alternative, and to keep you as a Sky customer - to remove your other Sky HDchannels, leaving you with the 5 FreeSat HD free to air channels and reduce your other TV pack[s] subscription down to around £10/£11pm in total, for six months, again without a Contract commitment.... This will let you keep the Sky EPG in addition to the Sky+ recording facility. And allow you to easily switch back to Sky if you should wish. You decide.....?
