Hi Andy,

(I'd better say first that your HTML message came in as
black text on a black background.) 

Yes, it does look like this is Sky's answer to Freeview.
However, at £150 flat fee, on the face of it, it appears to
be a good deal.

What's more, THEY come along and fit it all up, so if it
doesn't work, they cannot force you to pay - can they?

By the way, do you have a proper digital aerial?  When we
got our first digibox, we had to have the aerial replaced.

Hi George.
Are you perhaps thinking of subscribing yourself?  Pauline
and I have been thinking of subscribing to Sky but it's the
£30 or there abouts a month that is stopping us.  Is Freenet
the same as Freeview only using a satellite disk?  We
purchased a Freeview box for £50 from Argos only to discover
that it didn't work in our area.  But it really would be
nice to have a few extra channels.  At the moment, we only
get 1,2, itv and 4.
Best wishes.
