Hi You will get whatever the card is paid up for. You can only get what you have paid for, unless you use a card sharing network.

Very best regards Wez

Of course its not free

Card share rings require you to pay a subscription (commercial ones) or bring an unusual foreign subscription card to the ring.

Believe it or not a card share network is exactly what it sounds - various subscription cards all linked together via broadband and sharing the keys so everyone can watch everything subscribed to by the ring members.

A DB will open almost any pay satellite service with a card share or a subscription card.

I doubt if anybody would want a Sly card to be honest, Its hardly what you coud call exotic is it

If you had a fully subbed Sly card then maybe someone might let you in but with the basic stuff i doubt anybody would want it
