Recently obtained a Sky Digibox, for bedroom without digital tv, but it had no matching/paired viewing card.
Now, my ignorant assumption was I could use spare viewing card I had lieing around and match it up.
Not so, it's a subscription viewing card and cannot be "made" into a "Free To View" viewing card.
Kind of absurd considering if anyone cancels a Sky subscription their old subscription viewing card becomes an FTV viewing card.
The Sky call centre was quite adamant on this and refused to budge trying to push me to their sales and spend £20 on a new card, despite having one in my bloody hand.
Another example of ridiculous systems overriding common sense.
