Default Recycle old Sky boxes

Hi

Does anyone know where I can send our old Sky boxes?

We have 3.

Does anyone recycle them for cash?

Don't put your trust into an Experian score - it is not a number any bank will ever use & it is generally a waste of money to purchase it. They are also selling you insurance you dont need.

I'm in the same situation and I'm going to send mine back to Sky as I found this useful link: http://help.sky.com/my-account/your-...-sky-equipment


Unless someone can suggest a way of making money from it myself? Would anyone be interested in buying an old box?

Please don't just give them back to Sky - they have enough money already.

If you're considering giving them away, do so on Freecycle or Freegle.

Please.
Much of the advice on residential telephony I have given over the past 9 years or so is now gradually being overtaken by changes in the retail market. Hence, I have now deleted links to my previous 'pearls of wisdom'. I sincerely hope they helped save some of you money.
I will continue to help with Orchid programming whenever possible.
