Firstly have you asked your card supplier why your card has gone off? All cards/boxes will have to be upgraded eventually at least by the time your renewal is up.

No cards have stopped yet. What make is your receiver ? Some makes are not good for Showtime cards and they can scramble,but putting them in the standard Showtime box will usually activate them again,or you can have a refresh signal sent to your card(but do not call Showtime)

Hi yes my tv has stopped working from today.

I had seen the adverts but as I only renewed my package the end of June I thought I was ok.

How do I get a new box ? do you know ?

Wish I was told about this in June I would not of bothered.

I have a feeling this is going to cost me more money.

Cant believe I paid just over 700 euros for 2 months for tv.

Any advice would be great thanks.

They are upgrading to HD and also the new boxes have new cards which cant work out of their own boxes so can't be shared.

Its like Sky in UK where they are trying to get everybody to upgrade to HD tv,all for a better viewing experience. Have you ben getting the message about your channels going off on the 9th ?
