I do not watch enough TV to want or need sky plus nor any additional Sky based channels. I currently use an old sky box with a viewing card that I used when I was living with my parents as sky multiroom. I would happily pay for a Sky subscription with HD and plus but I just wouldn't get enough value from it.
I am therefore looking at options for going to HD without excessive cost. I would get Freesat HD but it misses sky3 and I quite like watching Road Wars. I could buy a Sky HD+ box from ebay or similar but it seems silly to waste money on a + box I couldn't use as I wouldn't want a Sky sub. Does a Sky HD (not plus) box exist that I could use to watch all the basic sky channels I get now through my viewing card but obviously HD?
Has anybody any experience to advise what may be the best route please?
