ITV1 HD, Hallmark Channel HD and Sky Sports HD 4 to join Sky over next few months as Sky+HD builds towards 50 HD channels
Sky will reach a new High Definition (HD) milestone this Summer by exceeding the 40 HD channel mark. The launch of ITV1 HD, Hallmark Channel HD and Sky Sports HD 4 will extend Sky’s HD leadership to 40 HD channels, five times more than any other HD service. As recently confirmed, Sky will also be launching Europe’s first HD news channel, Sky News HD, in the coming months, which will further increase the channel count. Sky plans to reach 50 HD channels by Christmas this year.

The addition of ITV1 HD from 2nd April means Sky+HD homes across all ITV regions will be able to watch World Cup matches live in HD, as well as other major ITV shows such as Law and Order: UK, The Prisoner, Foyles War, Lewis, Survival with Ray Mears, and Britain’s Got Talent.
Hallmark Channel HD will showcase a range of its most popular titles in HD for the first time, including Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Without A Trace. The channel will join the Sky platform on the 28th June.

Launching on 29th April, Sky Sports HD 4 will enable Sky Sports to build on its 9,200 hours a year of live sport in HD.

Hopefully now it will let me record ITV HD. For now Ive just got it manually tuned in with no recording ability.

Also, with it only being available in ITV regions - England and Wales - I assume the Scottish will have to head to channel 993 where it will be the red button as usual again.

thanks for posting details of your offer on here, have managed to persuade sky to give me the same offer! repped

you obviously prefer the Hallmark channel (sorry to offend):oops:

HD ITV on SKY will be good, saying that... i only use ITV HD for Football via the"Other Channels" method anyway...

By the way, using the short cut keys its not too bad to navigate to

Press "TV Guide" on remote > Press up > 9 > 5 > Select (as long as 10510 is at the top of the list)
