    no they will send you one i got mine la\st week

    They will send it out free of charge, we got ours last week, you don't need to do anything although might be worth giving them a call in case they sent it and it has got lost in post!

    they might not send it, op doesnt say if is on a subscription or not. if you arent subbing go to

    errr mysky.sky.com/rep…rd/ i think is correct, then type your card number in and it will tell you if you have to pay £20 (if your not subbing)

    I get a message like that when the lil one has been messing with the machine pulling the card out etc. Make sure your card is pushed in properly.

    If you're with sky HD you msy still be waiting for the new digital card update thing... we got ours a week or so ago.

    There's no fooling you.

    I've dissabled the message now, so I'm able to watch all my movies and sport on sky without that annoying message anymore.

    Same here.

    I got that message a month or two ago - haven't done anything about it. I used to subscribe but cancelled and just use the free to air stuff.

    I don't see you having to do anything, as in my case, the message just stopped appearing.

    If you have " Freeview " it is not via Sky, they (Sky ) provide " FreesatfromSky ", Freeview is via a TV Aerial only.

    I'm on freesat

    I'm on freesat



    Now I'm really confused.

    From your previous remarks, it seems that you're receiving the free channels via your old Sky digibox with the old Sky viewing card inserted?

    Is that right?

    If so, you're not getting Freeview or Freesat, but the free to air channels on Sky.

    Correctly known as Freesatfromsky.

    Freeview is via an aerial

    Freesat is via a dish, nothing to do with Sky

    Then it is not " Freesat " it is Freesatfromsky, a different system to " Freesat ".

    Freesat does not use a card.
