Hi LJH
I'm a bit out of touch as we moved back to UK 9 years ago, but at that time it actually was not legal to buy or use a SKY card outside UK. However most people got around that by registering their accounts in UK and then take the card over to Mallorca (Sky used to require your card to be connected to a UK based box for 12 months accessed by telephone line, but that might have changed). However, as long as you don't tell SKY you are taking your card abroad you should be OK. If I'm wrong I'm sure the Forum guys will put us right. Hope it works for you
