Hi,

I have a sky dish installed from a recently cancelled contract.

Is there a box I can purchase that can access any channels through this dish?

Thanks in advance.

If you mean pay channel then no if your only after the free channels then yes even your old sky box.

Yes, there are many satellite boxes on the market will be able to use a sky dish output.

But you need to find out what LNB has been installed. If you have an old style LNB, then any box will be able to connect to the dish. But if you have the latest sky installation it is more complicated.

Cheers.

Installed new dish just over 2 years ago. Had to return boxes!
Assuming this is complicated, what are the issues please?

Excuse my ignorance, but what is "cs stb" please?

Cs = Card sharing
Stb = Set top box
