Can you use a sky box as a Freesat box?

The answer is “yes” and “no”. You can't use Sky+ to record the output from a Freesat box – however you can use a Sky+ box to record over 200 subscription-free channels – however, note that if you're not a Sky subscriber, Sky will charge you £10 a month to use the Sky+ recording facility.
