Old Sky+ HD box

It is connected up and still works on the free channels.
Is it possible to get a subscription from sky for just the basic channels/box sets/record/pause/rewind still?
My status with Sky is former tv/broadband and mobile phone contract, status now tv and phone gone for over 2 years, phone paid off, just paying for the sim.
Please can someone advise.
Old enough to know better...........

    New contracts will probably require Sky Q.  You may have to make phone contact to see if they can reactivate your viewing card for Sky+HD.

    Keep your eye open round the Car boot fairs - a few early Cards, kept live encrypted channels - & record & play too. Had them for 6 months now - no subscription at all.
    Just NEVER connect the box to the internet - it will all die!
    I have two of these - they are as rare as hen's teeth.   :D
