I have no need for this whatsoever as i dont have sky and have no need for it at 63 but if it will benefit some then so be it.
If a mod needs to move it then again it just info i have found when searching the interweb
This process is not recommended, if you want movies then pay for them - you will get caught eventually if you use this method and end up with a criminal record - it's not worth it.
NOTE: your default SKY pin number is the last 4 digits of your sky card number for the FIRST SKY card you got, if you've had a replacement card since subscribing then it will be different and you'll need to phone SKY. Unlock Sky

This really is a simple trick. There is a 'secret' installers menu which allows you to add a prefix to the Sky phone number. All you need to do is add a false prefix and the box can never phone Sky! It is that easy ->> Press 'Services' Press '4' (system setup) Press '0' then '1' then 'select' (to activate 'secret' menu) Press '3' (telephone settings) Scroll to 'Dialing prefix' Enter a prefix of your choice (NOT 999 or 112, you don't want the fire brigade round your house at 2am!) Scroll to 'Save New Settings' Done! Now the box will just get an error message when attempting to send Sky your viewing information.

Unlocking Sky Box Office
Sky does know about this loophole but they also can't fix it, not for the foreseeable future anyway. Here are the steps to get your free PPV's. Enjoy! 1. Locate your phone line going into the back of the Sky box. 2. Cut through this phone line anywhere (about 3/4 length down) 3. Strip it and you will see 4 wires. Keep the black and red on one side and the green and yellow on the other. 4. Throw the other bit of the phone line that goes into the wall away or keep it if you like but you'll have no need for it. 5. Now you need one of the 9V oblong batteries (75p) and you can use one of those PP3 Battery connectors (20p). 6. Put the red and the back wires on one side of the battery and the green and yellow wires on the other 7. Hold it in place (or clip on the battery connector) then go to your box office film or whatever, pick it and put your pin it as usual, it won't charge you. If you get a "please connect telephone" message - you haven't stripped the wires enough, the battery is not connected or is dead. 8. After the screen clears you can disconnect the wires from the battery. You will never need to reconnect your phone line back to your TV. Sky updates through the satellite on your house and not through the phone line like some people think. 9.
VERY IMPORTANT - Never reconnect your phone line back to your sky box or you will be charged for everything you have ordered using this method. Now every time you want to watch a PPV just repeat stages 6. 7. and 8.
and lastly the main reason for post is i cant believe some idiots would rather sell this info on ebay than post it for free.
