- NEW SKY-CARD WHEN OLD ONE ISN'T EVEN HACKED???

Hmm. "Launch the card" as in "switch to the new 0B encryption" or as in
"start handing out the cards"? From what I've heard Sky are usually in
a transition stage of about one month during which both cards are valid.
Being in this case both 0A and 0B. This is due to the fact that the
process of card swapping takes a few weeks to complete probably. I guess
we'll know for sure when those infamous "Insert your new card as soon
as you get it" trailers pop up again. Usually means there's just 2
weeks to go. Any future info would be appreciated, John.

I think it was launched November 13th at Cape Canaveral (Florida) by
an Atlas rocket.
It will become operational in December at 13oE orbital position.

There will be five analogue channels and the only new one will be
Phoenix from ARD/ZDF, due to be launched on April 1, 1997. All the
digital channels, except for those of Italian public broadcaster RAI,
will be scrambled.
