Re: INSERTING NEW WHITE SKY CARD INTO DIFFERENT BOX

Free to air channels (ie all BBC and ITV channels and many more) do not require a card at all. Which channels can you receive with the card that you are unable to if you take it out? Channel Five, fiver, fiver+1 & a couple of others I can't remember. You can't get them through the sky box without a...

Re: INSERTING NEW WHITE SKY CARD INTO DIFFERENT BOX

Was this just for one of the multichannel packages or did it include premium sports and movie channels? I have a multichannel package and my card will work in any Sky box but I understand that this is not the case with movies and sports packages. My card is just for free to air channels , purchased...

Re: European states not individual nations

Good old human rights! I see today, a Kurd illegal immigrant, with a string of driving and criminal offences, knocked down and left a 12 year old girl to die, but it would infringe his human rights to deport him. I feel for the girl's parents. http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/dec/1 ... NTCMP=SRCH ...

Re: Dog Worming Law

Re: INSERTING NEW WHITE SKY CARD INTO DIFFERENT BOX

Well our white card had to be paired up with the box. We had it delivered to our daughter in the UK & when she came out we had to ring sky , on the daughters mobile, & set it up using the info from the TV screen in conjunction with them .

Re: Is the coalition committing treason?

I can't really see too much wrong with the OP's post. The Argentinians will no doubt try again & to leave yourself exposed with no aircraft carriers or worse sharing one with the French is madness. I personally wouldn't share anything with them & would keep & increase all the armed forces & the nucl...

Re: smoking ban next year in spain

yes the cigarette tax may have gone up by 28% but the one which they have slipped in quietly is the tax on hand -rolling & pipe tobacco which has increased between 25 & 75% . They say it's to bring the price of them more in to line with the cost of a packet of cigarettes. So for anyone who smokes go...

Re: Parcel from Spain to UK

Well they picked up two parcels in the UK for me, left two signed pick-up notes, 1 arrived 2 days later & the 2nd they are denying was ever picked up. The customer response is utterly useless, I've got more sense from Parcelforce ,who picked them up, than I have from them . I'm resigned to the loss ...

I've had no reply to emails sent to this company so I am not very impressed with their customer service. The china was pretty well packed, each item wrapped in bubble wrap and all in a stout box which I reinforced. We have sent china packed the same way before without problems, you get what you pay...
