i did it a while ago and had similar problems - you need to leave it switched on without switching it off for quite awhile -  at least a couple ofr days. apparently it also loads faster it you leave it set to sky news. no idea why!Randal

BBC are going free to air - no encrypttion therefore no  card neccasary. Though the card will be useful for ITV/ C4/ 5. There is plenty of talk about both ch. 4 and 5 pulling out of FTV and being only available on subscriptions in the next few days (jul 10th)


Your card should have been activated if they said they would, I presume you can see all the other channels like sky news etc?
