Just wanted to check out what sky would tell me if I rang up as a 'bloke off the street' regarding upgrading my Sky+ box to HD.
Here's the story I got.
1) If I didn't want the HD pack (therefore only wanted to see BBC HD etc) it would cost me around £200 for the box.....and I wouln't see any HD channels....the only gain would be the extra recording space.
2) If I did go for the HD pack at £10 pm then I would get the box for free, but would be charged a £60 setup fee.
So, I questioned the setup fee - it consists of the engineer running a 'HD' cable from my dish.
At that point I put the phone down.
I'm sure i'd heard/read that a Sky+ box can be replaced with a Sky+ HD as a stright swap, no extra fancy cabling etc - is this right?
Also - If I don't take the HD pack will be still be able to view BBC HD, ITV HD etc?
Just want to check my facts before ringing again.
