Just need a skybox with a viewing card.

Sky Sports News is also on regular DVB freeview isn't it - so you could just get a freeview box (provided you have a good enough TV aerial), but the Sky route is also an option...

All you need to buy is a freesat box

Both Jah and JTX are correct, but it is also worth bearing in mind that Sky bundles Sky sports news with its sports packages, hence although it is available via freeview with your digital aerial it is not available on skys freesat via the dish!. You would need to subscribe. Hope this helps.:thumbsup:

And illegal .. you run the risk of getting HUKD in to serious trouble by discussing it on here.:x

Just done a Google on Starview box but seems to be listing sellers. Could you tell me where I could find more info please fskinner?!?

starview boxes are not illegal to own, i pay for my virgin broadband and phoneline, to modify a cable box is illegal and i personally have not done this

this is a very good forum/site [url]www.techwatch.co.uk[/url]

Fair enough, but most of them have been " modified " as we all know.:roll:

also if you look on ebay,you can get all the info you need

most xbox wii,ds are also modified one way or another, still not illegal to own
