You cannot buy FTV cards on their own. Sky do a deal for £150 including SKY digibox (only SKY boxes can use the card due to the encryption), dish, installation and card. UK addresses only obviously :)

You can buy expired cards from places such as ebay. Some companies offer to sell you them at a cost. Check a thread I posted earlier this week about FTV cards from ebay as it is possible to be scammed.

You can go the "pout" route which involves signing up to a porn channel which offers pay per view soft core porn. No subscription. As you need a card for that they should organise one for you.

Hope this helps a bit and good luck (ps once again note that only SKY digiboxes can decode the videoguard encryption Sky use)
