I purchased a card around 2002 for watching sky free programs. Since then you can watch Freeview but because of bad signal problems I prefer to use Sky. Now they have said I need to replace my card and are asking £20 to just watch the free programs.Is this legal and correct.
at the retune last year I was told I needed a new card - When I entered my card no. on line it came up as being a free replacement which I duly received and installed. I think that if I get asked to pay in future that will be my time to go over to the new freesat as suggested by Graham.
You pay £20 for a Sky Freesat card every 5 years or you pay £100 to switch to Freesat and receive less channels. Why not just watch Freeview on Terrestrial TV with a £20 STB? As Kevscar says 'it's cost you 5 pence per week for the Sky Freesat'. In comparison the cost of BBC is about £2.70 per week'.
Over 2 months ago I filled in the application for a replacement card which they stated would arrive before the end of January,which I never received. It was free at the time. When I reapplied yesterday in February they asked for £20 which considering I only watch free channels via a Sky Dish and satellite aerial I think is disgraceful considering at my age I do not even have to pay for a licence.I get a lousy picture on Freeview so have to stop on Satellite.
