Sky Cards technology
We all take our Sky cards for granted, when they arrive, we just slot them in and watch our quality Sky TV, but they must be really complicated.Well it’s all quite interesting really Sky send every single channel and feature to your Sky box via the satellite, you can see it’s location on the Sky Cards homepage.
But the audio and video information is scrambled the Sky box is the only piece of hardware able to descramble this data. The Sky box has the capability to descramble every single channel and feature but it is the Sky card which determines which channels you are able to watch. So really the Sky card is the key to your Sky TV viewing.
The Sky card is not dissimilar to a mobile phone sim card in that there can only be one Sky card and everyone is unique and will only work with the Sky box it is registered with.
You should be exited when we send you your Sky card because it is an impressive device that should be respected and appreciated and after all if you have your Sky dish, your Sky box and a TV then all that is standing between you and watching great Sky TV is a Sky card.
