    gotta b better than standard TV, and at least the service will keep going. Maybe it may encourage other companies to start broadcasting again, even if u have to pay. I'd be more than happy to pay somebody (anybody !!!) to get E4, Sky One, MTV etc again, without having to get a Sky MiniDish.

    Can anyone tell me do you need a sky digibox to receive/view these channels or could I pick them up on my Humax 5400Z.
    Excuse my ignorance if its obvious but I'm new to this digital satellite thing !!

    Ya right Taker... Eventually they'll charge for it, they ain't gonna give this away for free, for long... Ain't No way, they come out with all this crap now, saying "Oh it's gonna be Free, No Subscription, No Catch." They'll say that for now, give it some months, or about a year, & they'll soon put a price on it...
