    Default Sky hd ?

    We have just bought a new TV, sky rang me with the offer of a HD box instead of the sky + we have. You have to pay for HD channels from what i gather is it worth it ?

    I have Sky hd

    I assume your telly is HD ready or Full HD,most new ones are now

    To be honest if you don't watch much sport I wouldnt bother getting it as at £10 per month its quite pricey when you consider how many channels are transmitted in HD

    Normally pies, i switch off when they ring with offers, but our new tv is HD etc, not like our old one that weighed more than a small car ! but the guy on the phone confused me he spoke so fast he would have been better doing horse racing commentary ! he mentioned multi room as we have a sky+ box which i liked the sound of that so i could tape and watch what i wanted instead of been banned from recording ! by my hubby incase i take valuable memory up ! for him to record his motorbike racing ! i know multi room is a tenner but do i have to pay for hd channels aswell ? louise

    If your new tv has freesat (as well as freeview) you should get hd channels. I think the bbc hd channel is free of charge on freesat.
    We need to get a dish installed to receive freesat though - next on the list of things to do (but more £s needed).

    I'm really impressed with the nature programmes in HD but I have Virginmedia not Sky.
