Have a look on eBay. There are some cheap ones there. The + box will set you back around £50 from eBay. Hop this helps!

Whereabouts are you? Price would depend on whether you could collect or would need it posted:)

If you are local to me you and can collect, im pretty sure I have a spare or three in the loft I can dig out for you gratis, failing that try your local freecycle: [url]www.freecycle.org[/url]

If you havent got a sky sbscription there is no point with sky+ as it will not work as sky+ only sky, if you have got a sky subscription you would get the install and equipment (well sky standard box free)

Agreed. It seems pointless to pay £50 for a secondhand one, when you can pay that or less for a new one and installed free. Only worthwhile if (a) You dont have a phone line to connect it to (b) Dont want to tie into a 12 month contract or (c) intend taking it abroad (though only because they wont install it in Spain for you!!!)

If I get just the normal sky box I can view all the free channels?
#17
caz1cool, that sounds like a good deal to me. Any chance you could take a photo of it for me please?

Best take this to the FS forum... or the forum police or mods will be along!

I couldnt care less TBH - but have seen people (unfairly) banned for suggesting a sale outside that forum. Just a friendly tip!

Will do once I've taken the pics. Cheers for the heads up guv! rep added for being such a lovely chappy!

He he... thanks.

Glad you took it the way it was intended. (You never can tell sometimes when advice can be seen as interfering etc!)

I saw someone banned because they replied "Ive got one I dont need if you are interested?" Harsh in the extreme IMHO. But there ya go!

That sounds fine to me caz.

ye i am not wanting to get a subscription at all. just wanting to watch the free channels, because i already have a dish set up from the last people who owned the house

so i cant use sky+ without a subscription?

(also i am not sure wether they had sky or sky+ but there is 2 wires coming out of the wall) like this -

im pretty sure you need a different install to use sky plus, you need two lined from the sky disk to feed the box, so unless the people before you had sky plus you wouldn't really benefit from a lot of the features, you wouldn't be able to record one channel and watch another one at the same time. if all you want to do is watch the free channels than you might be better off saving some money and getting a regular box. (this is what i remember please correct me if im wrong)

I have now created a thread selling my two digiboxes on here in the for sale forum.

is that just the box. and absolutely no subscription to any package?

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh im being underdone by a pound!
#31
Sky+ £49 and Sky HD £99
Sky were promoting this in my local Morrison's store today. So could be worth checking if it is nationwide. It said offers end Sunday on the stand and "For existing customers" was hand-written on the Sky HD sheet. No-one was actually on the stand when I passed, so I dont have any other details.
