Hello. I now receive fSfS and record/playback
without any card. I`m buying a flatscreen
soon, and want to continue fSfS and be able to
r/p fSfS HD., again without any card.
Do i just swap my sky+ box for a sky+HD box,
or is that too simple??.

jb38:Intrigued??, you and me both. This sky+box
lay gathering dust in a vacated bedroom until
i extended the cables and, when it worked, i
assumed (Doh) fSfS was indeed free, as with
freeview. I have just spoken to the original
subscriber,and have been assured the subscription was cancelled after the minimum contract period, and he also was unaware of any £10.00 p.m.access fee.
It would appear there are two possible
reasons for the service to be live.
1.He is not aware of continuing payments.
2.Sky have somehow left this box with fSfS r/p active.This may be most unlikely. but not
impossible?. So the situation remains as
described in my initial post.Needless to
say,i would be hesitant to initiate changes
requiring interaction with sky.

jb38:Pick TV shows `no information available`.
`The mystery of the cardless service` remains but will not, i suspect survive the changes (HD r/p) i will require when i buy my new TV.
Incidentally, i wanted to stay using fSfS
because i like Aljazeera, (evenings only on
Freeview), and NHK world, now HD (not on Freeview).Perhaps i should consider Freesat?.
