Sky Plus 10 a month fee after cancelling by Ed
Sky Plus is obviously rather good, but once one has had the box for a year I presume you are then released from the Sky contract. As I understand it, however, they block its recording functions unless you pay them 120 a year. Is that correct, and more importantly, how is it legal?

The Sky+ 10 fee letter hath arrived by Ed
And as I said a while ago, the 10 fee is dropped for any sky package from 1 July.
