Sky has offically confirmed today that they will be issueing new sky viewing cards.
they have updated the messages on the sky information channels (999 and press red), and state that new viewing card will be start to be issued in April.
NOTE: THIS IS A REPOST OF A TOPIC FROM APRIL.
If you have a sky subscription, then the new viewing card will be sent to the UK address (or your installers / agents uk address).
If you bought a new FSFS card in the last 3 years then these should also be replaced.
it is expected that ex subscription cards and fsfs cards bought over 3 years ago will not be replaced.
it is expected that all exisiting “blue house” cards will be swicthed off by May.

EDIT: I have created two new pages on my site that cover this change over, that will be updated as and when any further information is available.
