When is sky updating samsung boxes
About the only thing I can see that would stop that would be if broadcast standards changed drastically to parameters that the thomson boxes don't support.
Sky know who actually own these boxes so it should be easy to target them and get them to upgrade , I suspect a lot of those still hanging onto the Thomson boxes are using them for the component connection,these customers will hang on until the last moment Sky know who actually own these boxes so it should be easy to target them and get them to upgrade , I suspect a lot of those still hanging onto the Thomson boxes are using them for the component connection,these customers will hang on until the last moment The frustrating thing is that I have a Thomson in its box but as I bought my own Pace box at full shop price to replace it Sky say I am not entitled to an upgrade at a reduced price.
Sky also state that "you may not be able to view HD channels through your Sky box" if you don't upgrade.
And that this offer is for for "selected Thomson Sky+HD customers in receipt of an offer email/letter from Sky".
Owners of the Thompson Sky+HD box can receive a free upgrade to a new Sky+HD box under sky's Better Box Scheme so that they can benefit from sky's newest service such as: increased storage space, Sky 3D, On demand & Catchup, Sky Store and Undelete.sky are being creative with the wording in order to finally get these dead boxes out of circulation.In that case I'd have thought 'all your subscription channels could be inaccessible' would be a little more accurate and more likely to get people motivated to upgrade? You can't argue with a free upgrade to a better box.I have never paid under 280 for a Sky HD box and I thought everyone was entitled to one 49 box.
So yes I can see thomson boxes no longer able to receive any subscription channels after the next card swap.But I can't see why they would not continue to receive the FTA channels, both HD and SD I also can't see why those with an old blue card receiving and recording the FTA channels would be affected.
