We had Sky for quite a while and the contract ran out. We didn't renew...however we still have a Sky Box and Dish.

We just got a message on-screen stating that "If you want to continue viewing these channels, you need to order a new viewing card". Or something along those lines. It also gave a URL (www.sky.com/replacecard) so I followed the link and it stated I need to spend £20 for a Freesat card.

Other then buying a new freeview or freesat box, is there a cheaper (or free) way that I can get a card for the box - asking friends/family for a card is a no-go unfortunately.

Simple answer is no, but once you buy the card you never need to buy another again when sky replace them.

I too have a Sky box and dish from a previous contract
I'm continually receiving this same message but there's no way I'll be buying any card to watch Sky3,Fiver and Five USA

If you don't buy the card from Sky and channel 5 goes when you take your card out

To add Channel 5:

Services> system set up>add Channels >10.773 - H - 22.00 -5/6 - Find Channels > highlight Five yellow button>select.

To view Channel 5 :

services > select 'other Channels' > select Five :thumbsup:
