Argh! I want want want

I managed to order while still showing in stock went through and completed checkout but no confirmation email, getting a bit doubtful now. :?

I got one last week from Argos for £283 with a discount code.
I had the greatest pleasure in phoning Sky & cancelling my subscription.
The guy I spoke to was even interested in buying one himself!
Piping hot deal if you can get one at this price.
:thumbsup:

are these patchable?
or are you going to be stuck with what freeview offers?
Otherwise Ill stick with my dreambox 800

Is there an installation fee?

Not if you already have a Sky dish installed. Freesat and Sky are broadcast from the same satellite.

If I have Sky, and get one of these in the future, do I just unplug my Sky box and plug this in? Or is there some moving of the Sky dish involved?

You should be able to just plug in box a slight adjustment may be needed for dish if it's moved a little (even though your sky was working)

You'll need a twin or quad lnb fitted to your dish too if you've only ever had standard sky, not sky+.
This will enable the full potential of the HDR to be realised. You can use it with just a standard lnb, but you wouldn't be able to record two of any channels at a time, just two of some on the same frequency, or one only.

:?

Is there anything worth watching on it in HD ?

The Sky HD channels transmit SD material most of the time and whats in HD generally isnt worth watching.

Unless BBC HD is different on Freesat I would give it a wide berth for a while as most likely the technology will change before the programming.

I was asking about this in Dixons the other day and the advisor said that they do not sell them without adding the instalation fee, even if you already have a dish set up. This may have now changed as he agreed that it was pointless if you are just switching from Sky, but def instalation fee (£75 I think) when I asked.

Original Poster

there is no fee. If you want a dish and for the dish to be installed its around £75, you can just buy the box tho if you have a dish up already. or buy a dish for £30 and install yourself.

nonsence.
HD technology dates back to the early 80's, its only in more recent times that they have had the data capacity to actually broadcast & duplicate (blu-ray) content for home viewing at a cost effective way. Nearly all films can be transferred to HD from the original source without having to use additional hardware to "fake" lines/pixels.

bbc hd is bbc hd, there isnt a different bbc hd for freesat & sky.
Think of all those channels you get without a sky subscription.. well thats freesat.

As for HD
Theres HD BBC
HD ITV which i think is still in trial
& Channel 4 which I also think is still trial
ATM anything thats not HD is broadcasted in SD.
No idea about channel 5

I think thats about all you'll get for now channel wise.

HD is here to stay for a good while yet & the technology wont change for a quite a few years.

Anyway.. for £300 - I wouldnt touch it. Id get a Sky HD+ & at least you always have the choice of going for a sky subscription in the future.

i'll correct some of your errors:

ITVHD isnt a trial, you press the red button when watching itv to watch the HD version of the show, limited number of shows and films that have this though.

Channel4HD isnt on freesat yet due to sky signed an exclusive agreement but this agreement runs out soon and will likely go on freesat pretty soon.

FiveHD will come to freesat at some point, wont be for a while though.

SkyHD requires a subscription so i wouldnt get that unless you need sky sports hd or some of the other ones. Virgin are adding 4 more hd channels over next 3 months in addition to the bbchd it has so that will be add some more choice for us.

also most ITV Footie is on ITV HD on Freesat only as ITV HD is not available on $ky.

Bit late to this deal - out of stock so you guys must have got them all. Will just have to keep checking the website in case they restock

I managed to order one just after lunch today - rep added. I've had an order confirmation email, but nothing definite wrt. delivery date.

Ditto above post. With the Egg Card 6% cashback £241.10 :thumbsup:

Paid and extra £5.87 to above price to get a specified delivery date though. Fingers crossed for delivery confirmation now.

Someone said they got one from Currys in store where they had just recieved 4 and paid the RRP of £299 for it. Thier web is not updated yet. I guess it'll be available in all DSG stores as soon as stock rolls out.

I managed to order one today too.

Many thanks to OP

I bought one from Currys Monday night. Only had four in and they weren't on display. I had to ask if they had one. Assistant didn't really know what I was talking about. He had to check the computer. He was quite surprised himself.

£299

My order status now shows as

"Stock Query - we will UPDATE you shortly by email or phone" :?

Cancelled :x

Mines showing "Delivery Instructed" - hope that this means that I'll get one.

It does.

Cool, just been sent a tracking number, so time to sell my Sky HD and 9200TB boxes.

Had my order cancelled - out of stock:x
