old sky hardware with an old (Expired) or Freesat from Sky card is still relevant to some. I dont subscribe to sky, and have no interest in doing so, but for £5 for an old Sky box on ebay (which still had the card in) I can now decode Motors TV which is a free, yet encrypted channel. (as is liverpool TV)

slightly annoying that Motors isn't free to air, but as long as this, and a few other free channels remain encrypted, this setup remains relevant to some.

Unsure why this arrangement exists, as presumably motors TV pay Sky to encrypt this channel, yet dont receive revenue from Sky as the channel isn't included in any Sky package? Confusing.

Getting a low background buizzing on Radio 2 FM in my car. Thought it was just my car, but somebody I work with said exactly the same this morning.

Assumed it was this region only, but she drive to Manchester recently and said it was there all the way.

Cant find any other reports of this. Anybody else?
