Unfortunately you cant at the moment you need to own a set-top box with a card slot like a top-up tv box or a freeview enabled tv with a cam/card slot.

I have seen a Play tv 2 box listed on play.com (no release date) whether that will have a card slot i dont know my guess would HD channels through an aerial.

You cant get sky sports on freeview device, to receive sky sports you have to become a sky customer and use their sky box

One thing I never understood is why an update isn't put through to enable these services on PlayTV.

The card does one thing, pass the code to decrypt the signal. No reason why that code cannot be linked to your PSN ID if you were to register that with Top-Up TV.

As the first reply says you are only able to get sky sports if you have a freeview box with a card slot. Unfortunately play TV doesn't have one. To the above, you can get sky sports on Virgin Media and a few other services you don't have to have sky!
