Looking to find a freeview box that will work off a sky dish using skyplus cables.
Any ideas please people.

Impossible, you can get a freesat box which you can just plug in sat cables and will work but a freeview box will only work with an aerial. You can also just use the skybox as a freesat box once you stop subscription it will still allow free to air channels to be watched.

That's freesat not freeview, you want a Humax box, £80 for a basic one or £200 for one with a built in hard disc recorder, or if you're ditching Sky, your Skybox will continue to work on the free channels but Sky+ won't work. Alternitively buy a new smart tv with integrated freesat, freeview and streaming £400-500 should get you a reasonable one.

Steve....as Paul said, you can still use your Sky box to get all the free to air channels if you cancel your subscription. You won't be able to record on it though.
