If you have a Sky Box, you need a subscription. You can't just plug it in and get sky. There's no such thing as a free package. Least not to my knowledge.
Yeah, you can purchase a Freesat+ box which is almost indentical to Freeview but uses a satalite dish instead of an aerial and can view channels in HD.
You pay for the box and a dish if you haven't got one already (works fine with a Sky dish as it connects to the same satalite).
At the moment their expensive to buy as their fairly new technology. Around £250 and upwards for a decent Freesat+ box. Give it a year or so and the prices will drop.
Ryanardo - If you want to get Sky+ you WILL need to renew your contact with BSkyB as i had Sky+ cancelled my contact and can no longer view my recorded shows or pause live TV. The only channels i can now view are the basic terestrial channels (BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5).
Freesat doesn't give you free Sky channels but gives you more options than Freeview. And the option to watch in HD is an added bonus.
