    Normally we all go away together, so take our card from the house..

    Do any of you have a second card and if so where do/did you get it from?

    And what did you pay for it, not worried about sport or film channels..

    Just that I may want to go away on my own and would like to have Sky, but cannot take the one from home.. without upsetting them left at home. :cry:

    Thanks.

    Why bother with Skye Box if your not interested in films or sport just get a freesat box with 140 channels...or a good book if you don't find anything you like:Rofl1:

    Sky card

    Getting a new white sky card, call;08448 244 400 follow instructions (button 1 so on)
    when the girl answers, say you would like a free view card please, she will ask for delivery address (must be in UK) quote payment card number (visa) £20 and it will be with you in 2 - 5 working days. When you get it call again and ask to activate the card. you will need your sky box number, quoted on screen (box info) and it will take about 24 hrs to acctivate.
    the girl will give you this info.
    Good luck

    my wife and I thought it would be a good idea to subscribe to sky in order to widen our viewing possibilities ...long evenings in the winter

    so we got a viewing guide for a month to see what would be available to us
    during that period we found 2 programmes we would have liked to watch , 90 minutes between them

    guess what we decided ?

    the £20 freesatfromsky card allows access to 8 itv1 regions, five, fiver five usa, sky 3, viva tv and liverpoll fc tv.

    you can get a multiroom card subscription - for £10 is is a mirror of your original card - however T&Cs mean that it must be conected to a uK phone line so they ca track wher yu are using this card - however is should be OK to use in the caravan as long as after 2 or three weeks you connntect it to yourhome phoen line to enable it to Call sky....

    Yes. If you have one card on a full pack say £45 per month, then you get a second card with a full pack for an extra £10 per month.
