Hi. You can get these direct from sky for only £20, You don't need one for channel 5, but for channels 17s and 176 as well as pick tv, used to be Sky 3. They come not activated, you then need to call sky, If you don't want to do this then we can offer one for €25. But if you just want channel 5 call us and we will talk you through it for free. Regards. Carl.

"You don't need one for channel 5"

True, but then your reception of the free to air non sky card version of five totally depends where you are in Spain. The free to air version of five (on frequency 10773 h 22 5/6) is on a very weaka satellite frequency, and in many east coast areas of Spain is not available 24/7 even on 3.1m dishes!

The sky card version of Five (on freq 12442 h 27.5 2/3) is available 24/7 in most areas of Spain on 80cm dishes, I even get it on an old Sky minidish!

So to say thatyou dont need a card for canenl five is true, but it really does depend on oyur location and dish size!

no, you just get extra freesat channels without a sky subscription

You dont need a card for "freesat" channels, as "freesat" channels are free to air. All free to air chanenls are available already on freesat and sky and generic free to air receivers already.

There is no such thing as a "freesat" card.

There is, which is mentioned here, the "freesatfromsky" card, that allows access to a number of "free to view" channels, ie those channels that are encrypted and need a card, but no subsscription. These channels include some ITV1 regions (on freq 12402 and 11973), Irish Channel 4 (on freq 12480), Five, Fiver, Five USA (and timeshift channels), Pick TV, Sony TV, Motors TV, Viva TV, Liverpool FC tv.

Sky Sports is a subscription channel, and is available via satellite from 29.75 per month. Sky SPorts 1,2 and 3 are available 24/7 on small dishes. Sky Sports 4 and SSNews are on a weaker beam, and may not be available 24/7, especially around 5pm when it is weakest, even on big dishes.

SKY "Freesat" card is €45 or you can contact SKY UK and pay £20 you will need a UK address, also if you have a SKY+ box you can pay SKY and extra £120 and they will unlock the recording facility of the box. There are some great deals around at the minute on new 500GB sky hd "3D ready"  boxes that come with a sky "contract card" and even cheaper if you pay monthly subs to SKY using a UK Bank account, it takes 7-10 days to arrive.

DO NOT BE TEMPTED BY THESE "CHIPPED" or "MAGIC" or "WIZARD" BOXES 

They are doing the rounds and we have had so many horror stories of people paying for one of these "Chipped" boxes and after a week they stop working, they seem to be at most markets and boot sales up and down the Costa Blanca.

DO NOT THROW YOUR MONEY AWAY.

If you want SKY SPORTS or miss UK GOLD or DISCOVERY OR HISTORY CHANNEL (my favorite) then get an original SKY BOX with an original SKY card and you will have no problems, plus you will have the benfit of a fantastic 7 day TV guide that allows you to record channels by pressing one button and a series link feature that will alllow you to record every single episode of your favourite TV show.

If you would like to see one working feel free to PM me and pop round for a cuppa!
