I have just been sent a PM by someone who will remain nameless, but willieboy said that his *12 month gift* which he got free with his skybox from amazon has stopped working after a channel update. The channel lists DO NOT affect the *GIFTS* under any circumstances and this is more than likely a scammer.
What they do is simple, they sell on places such as Ebay or Amazon, and they sell the boxes with a 12 month *FREE* gift which is sometimes too good to be true. but as soon as the 45 day limit has gone up (this is the paypal refund time limit) they then turn OFF the lines leaving you having to purchase a new line - they hope from them.
do not be ripped off, there are plenty of genuine suppliers without having to buy on ebay or amazon and sometimes it is worth paying that little bit extra to get better quality and support..
