Mass cull of expat Sky cards…
According to reports Sky have, last week and this week, switched off many Sky cards being used by expats to view UK TV.
Many people have seen a loss of access to the Sky pay channels, and although contacting their card provider, new cards are not thought to be able to be issues for a few weeks due to the numbers involved.
It appears as if Sky have started to switch off many sky cards thought to be used overseas, possibly from the one or two major “sky card dealers” who operate in the UK and issue cards to expats.
One report suggest over 700 Sky cards suspected of being used outside the UK have been cancelled this week.
In addition, this cull is also thought to affect Sky cards thought to being used for “iptv / streaming”, which is happening, coincidentally, just before the start of the new Premier League football season.
Sky cards are, via the terms and conditions of the sky contract, only for use in the UK. Although, as I understand it, under an EU court ruling a few years ago, it is not illegal to use a viewing card from one EU member state in another EU member state.
