If I upgrade to Sky+ will Sky give me a card for my existing box? by loz
I am thinking of upgrading to Sky+. I want to keep my existing box, but I don't want a mirror subscription. I just want it for the "free" channels. Will Sky provide me a card for this? Or will my existing card still work - for the free channels? Or is my existing card transfered to Sky+ Ta Loz
