    GET Channel Five With Out SKy Card?

    Anyone seen these guides on ebay? 110503594285 / 180474297283
    Does anyone know the info? I have tried google but cannot see anywhere to be able to get channel five on sky without subscription? Once your freesat card expires channel five, fiver etc cannot be viewed but these listings claim there is a way around it. I know its only a couple of quid but dont want to pay scammers if it is fake, if anyone has any ideas please let me know
    thanks

    You can get five without a viewing card, though it won't appear on the program guide ........ here's how you do it:

    On the Sky box go to Services > System Setup > Add Channels
    Enter the following details:
    Frequency: 10773MHz (10.773GHz)
    Polarity: Horizontal
    Symbol rate: 22000 (22.0Mb)
    FEC: 5/6
    Go to Find Channels, highlight “Five″, and press the yellow button(to store the channel), then press Select.
    To view channel 5 you have to go to Services > Other Channels, and select “Five″

    Get a new card, it will cost £20 and last about 5 years.

    It will give you the correct ITV Channel for your region as well as a few other channels.

    Hi, thankyou for the msg. Do I have to resubscribe with sky as tbh I don,t want to have anymore dealings with them after being a loyal customer for 15years & having problems with them. Do you know if I can get a new card without having to deal with them again??? Thanks

    Yes you can, just a one off payment of £20 , no contract required, if you don't want to deal with them directly, get a friend to order the card for you.

    From their website;

    All you need to gain access to the free channels available on the digital satellite platform is a Freesat from Sky viewing card, which costs just £20. If you’d like to access the interactive services available, you’ll also need a working phone line. To purchase a viewing card please phone Sky on 08448 244 400

    danmc , Thank you! I have had an amstrad sky box recieving freesat channels (no card) for about 4years with no channel 5,(I assumed it was because it was old ) and have been debating whether to get a freesat box, but as I have freeview didn't think it was worth it for the extra channels, however..... long story short..I revisited the freesat box idea and discovered (while googling) that no channel five is a common problem with no sky card.
    Thanks to you I now have channel 5! Thank you soooooooooo much!

    After two weeks in France and no channel 5 for the Missus to watch Big Brother I have just read your thread. Hey presto worked first time. Thanks very much.

    You are a star Dan.... cheers
