Found 16th Jul 2009
I'm off on hols soon to a villa in Spain. It's got basic Sky, but wondered if I could access my Sky package if I take my Sky card with me.

erm... lol
i think you have to ring them to pair the card with the box
99% sure it wont work. The box is restricted to delivering the package that the account was set up with.

Why would you want to watch Sky when you are on holiday in Spain?

As others have said, you would need to pair the card with the box, if you did that it may well cancel the basic package that the Villa Owners have.

Also, depending on where you are going in Spain, and the size of the dish, you probably would not get all channels anyway.
quite possibly might work. My old fella goes to the south of france (caravan) and takes a spare sky box with him, takes his card out of the one at home and puts it in and it works. Charges all the other oldies to get in and watch corrie! my advice is, take it and try it, what you got to lose? fits in your wallet.
It will work with FTA channels such as ITV etc, but not premium channels (such as Sky 1, Sky Sports etc).

There are 3 options:

1. Take your box with you as well
2. Pair the card with the new box (phoning up sky job)
3. Investigate possibilities using a dreambox

Probably not due to them using a different satellite....



Are you being serious?
