I use a Humax Foxsat which was plugged into an old Sky dish for ages. I replaced the dish with a better one with quad-LNB and get all the features of Sky+ without the recurring costs. Total cost ~£200 for decoder, dish and installation.


Exactly the same box I haz.

6 months basic subs can get you this....


Goodmans GFSAT200HD / HD Freesat Decoder


£64 online

Excellent entry-level Freesat units - super quality pictures and sound plus outstanding 1080p up-scaling. Users the same satellite dish set-up as BskyB for simple economic installation. Access all freesat Digital Channels and Radio Stations.


If you want premium channels, you can get the decoders with these facilities.

Thinking on getting rid of our Sky subscription but was wondering if I did and continued to use the sky box as a free-to-view box, would the recording function and series link etc still work? Anybody with experience of this?


Not sure about sky+ but the basic sky box I gave up my Sky subscription three years ago I got the free-to-view without any problems.
