Hi

Out of interest do any of you that have freesat suddenly have the ability to get eg sky cinema 1, 2, 3 etc, sky one, sky movies, sky sports, eurosports etc??

It's very weird indeed - not that i'm complaining. I've looked on sky and freesat on web but can see any where that sky are giving a eg 14 day preview of channels.

for info i've had freesat for about one year

You will not be getting your neighbours signal.The way I understand it is that the programmes you receive are decided at Sky's end.Normally they programme your connection to receive what you pay for.

Keep your head down, and your mouth shut. I will try to get my Dish sorted as soon as I can.

I had freestat 12th May I received a letter advising me sky were offering free sky all channels for a month. 12th June I received a leter to say the all free channels offer was about to cease but they were offering half price packages for 12 months. 14th May I took up the offer to subscribe to 4 packages @ £9/month + sky movies for £18/month - all for 12 months - biggest mistake ever. They are charging me full price for 4 packages and no sky movies. 12th June sent them a registered 2 pages letter as I was sick of calling them with no-one doing anything. 4th July - received message on my answer service to say the caller was emailing the billing department to instigate the half price deal and that sky movies would be set up. 8th July - 6 phone calls later to sky customer service - still no sky movies and they are still billing me @ £18/month. Can't cancel because I'll be billed forthe year as the 1 month opt out had expired before I received my first bill which was when I realised they were over charging. Can't cancell DD payments as they'll sent the debt collector round and give me a bad credit rating - SKY customer service rubbish - hid behind the data protection - won't give you full name of person you're talking to - just stone wall you.

I've been with Sky a number of years too, and only ever had minor problems, but I wouldn't trust them as as far as I could throw them, I've read too many horror stories.

If ever cable becomes available in my area I'm off.
