      watching sky tv in france

      can anyone confirm, I have heard that if you take your sky box and card with you abroad you can watch sky tv obviously you need a dish, but as long as you do not tell sky you are not in the UK and use a UK address for your billing you can watch sky, but can you advise does the address you give have to be someone without sky at the moment, or can you use your previous address that you had in the UK or a relatives that already has sky thanks in advance

      If you want a sky subscription package then you need a card registered to a uk address, if you just require free to air channels then no card (or address) is required

      yes want a sky subscription package the one I already have now, in fact, so what Uk address can I register it to, my original one or someone else and does it matter if they already have sky can I just change the address if I have to and not cancel the package at all, or if I can register it to the address I have at the moment say nothing and just take the box and card with me

      There were loads of companies supplying viewing cards in Spain and after a google search "sky viewing cards france" or "hosted sky viewing cards france" turned up a few worth looking at. I suggest contacting them and enquiring.
      Sorry I can't recommend any but I haven't personally used them.
