think they are about £80 and you get all the channels, how reliable are they? and what are the chances of you getting caught by sky?

Its illegal and wrong,pay sky what you should,its good value for money,and you get 100s of repeats just in case you missed them the 9th time around.:)

I think you mean the Virgin/NTL boxes dont you ?

A friend of mine has one but im not sure of the ins and outs of it.

Is yours HD? if so that a very good price. I think he paid double that.

Obviously you will need a satelitte dish up and sky will need to do this so you would certainly need some kind of package. This would be a good option and I would say you are unlikely to ever got caught as lots of people have the minimum package.

I think you can also use them if you have an old dish (as long as it has Sky + dual feeds) without paying a subscription. I would say you are more likely to be caught this way as Im sure they will carry out random checks of some sort.

Still I would say its worth the risk and whenever my contract ends I will probably get one, or maybe 2!

They haven't been around very long.

I'd like to think it will drive the cost of sky down but they will probably just bump it up to compensate for the chipped boxes!

Until I changed to 02 broadband recently our sky bill was nearly £100 a month. I know it was my decision to take it but fook me its expensive

Probably the same thing. I know my mate paid £200 for his setup and gets absolutely everything including porn and box office.

Although sky porn is asbolute ****!

I was high one night (hard to believe eh?) and ordered a load of porn from one of the companies. Needless to say it was absolute turd and I didn't watch it long.

Anyway the gf then gets a call in work one day (sky account in her name) from Climax tv or something like that saying "If you plan on ordering a lot of our moves through box office it might be cheaper to get a subscription. She was so embarassed but needless to say I saw ythe funny side of it!

I've had one since before Christmas, before that I had a Virgin box which cost me £60 to get chipped, that is running upstairs in the bedroom while the SKY box is in the living room. They are good, the lad who did mine said they are good for 2 years and if they block it he only charges £40 to re programme the card for another 2 years.

If you can get ya hands on one snatch their hands off.

Virgin get paid by how many customers view a SKY channel, Virgin don't give 2 fcuks about chipped boxes they are getting the money off SKY anyway.

As far as I was aware, it's not the actual sky box, but a clone card that allows you to get all the channels and box office credit etc.

that's why sky recently changed all their viewing cards, they can send a signal to check if the box is connected to a phone line and if it doesn't do a callback they shut it off(i worked for Sky a few years ago):whistling:
