Hi, is it okay to sell of couple of white Sky Viewing cards on an auction site?

Will they work no problem in any other Sky box for all the freeview channels without having to be paired up or anything?

as long as its current you will get all but the premium channels without swapping it
#2
what dyou mean current? The newer white ones?

So safe to sell them?
#3
Yes, the white ones. The blue ones are non-functional now.

Can't sell here, as the card remains the property of Sky.

so these cards never ever get blocked for the freeview channles or anything? Fine to use on any box ntil the newer ones come out again

If you put hem on e-bay they will take them off again, as have been said the card is not yours to sell in the first place.

Even the old blue cards with a house on them still have a use they will still put the right region of thet card for bbc and itv.

Add to that the fact that you may not get Channel 5 channels which is the whole point of the card due to the card not being paired with the box (and impossible to do as the system refuses to pair a disabled card). All in all, if you sell the cards, I'll get a call from someone that I'll have to explain that they will need to purchase a freesat card

You can add it manually, also it is slightly awkward to get to this way.
