Could you please rewrite this sentence?

Freeview is not "being turned off". Freeview *IS* the replacement for analogue FTA TV broadcast.

Your sentence makes absolute no sense at all.

Can't see any details of that. But on the sky website the pricing options for mysky is

$649 joining fee + $0 per month

or

$99 joining fee + $20 per month

But I don't think with either of those options, you own it. But for $649 I think you should, considering a tivo is just $299 owned.

I believe sky are giving free access to the older generation mysky devices, to selected existing customers who don't have one, which I believe have two tuners like tivo.

Yes mattnz i saw that about the old mysky
I pay ten dollars a month for my mysky plus

my skiy bill with the box is $33
as I got it half price for a year

and telecom credited me back 600 dollars for my tivo

And i got a free one as well so im happy

Once the 12 months is up I will only keep the basic sky and basic box without the recording
And use the tivo in my room
