Re: UK sky box

Do you want the box for the free to view channels or the full Sky package? If FTV then you're better off buying a Freeview box in England. If the full Sky pack you'll need a viewing card paired with the box and for that you'll need a UK address.

Correction, you need a FreeSat box, Freeview uses terrestial aerials which will never work here.

I use FreeSat, but also get most channels I need on my cable solution now (including Channel 4 in HD which is now only SD on satellite), so rarely use the satellite except to record stuff occasionally. Was looking at a new FreeSat box as they have better integration of things like iPlayer.

Thanks. I keep muddling the two. Yes, a Freesat box.
