Hi everyone!

I'd like to know if all new sky cards issued after february don't need to be
matched to their digibox to be able to receive C4 and C5. Is this right?

That is correct

In fact No cards were matched to boxes for C4 or C5

Yes MIGHT especially if you have a light blue card not a dark blue
one, see here http://www.vowles-home.demon.co.uk/Sat/Sky.htm#ENDofFTV

Thanks for your help Chris!

I've got a light blue card atm, you think it's worth buying a dark blue one
on some of those online auctions..
I just wish these bloody networks made their mind up about what to do with
this subscription thing!!!

Ciao,
Sunny

The evidence at the moment is that both sorts of cards will stop doing FTV
sometime this Summer.


What evidence is this?

What is there to pay (to Sky not $ky as you keep mistyping) for FTV
that wouldn't be to pay to make the a subscription channel?


Where have you been for the last few weeks?

Whether you like it or not, it has been made crystal clear, (and discussed
here adnauseum) that ITV, Channel 4 and five will soon be made unavailable
to everyone who does not pay Sky for one of their subscription packages.

They will cease to be FTV on Astra, even though they are available for free
on terrestrial (analogue and digital), and are not going to follow BBC down
the FTA path (at least that is the story at present).
