Using Sky without a card? Let's call that Sky No Card

Since the launch of Freesat, UK Free TV has called the service you get with a Sky box and no viewing card (or an expired card) fSfS (for Freesat from Sky). To avoid confusion, a few changes have been made.

I have made a change to the name used for the service provided by a Sky box and no viewing card.

This was called fSfS on UK Free TV. You can get this service still - from:

FREESAT from Sky - Call now to order for £175.

However, the name is a little confusing, because there is also the service freesat:

freesat - Subscription free HD Satellite TV through a Digital Box.

So, to make things clearer, the Sky service is now called "Sky No Card" on UK Free TV, and the other service "Freesat".

A Humax box is nothing to do with Sky and does not have a facility to insert a Sky Card as they are not required for Freesat reception. So you don't even need a subscription, hence the name Freesat.
