    Downgraded from Sky HD to regular but I am still recieving it but getting not getting charged! what would you do?

    I downgraded from the HD pack to regular Sky as I never watch the HD channels as I only use my plasma for my games consoles and pc and hate how SD looks on plasma.

    At first they overcharged me for the 1st month as I still recieved the HD mix so I rang up and they credited my account and said it was cancelled.

    According to MYSKY its cancelled and my new bill has been paid by direct debit for the following month minus £10 credit but for some reason I am still able to record channels and watch HD stuff like SKY1 HD.

    Just worried in case they start charging me for it by accident.

    If in my position would you personally ring back one more time or just let it slide and enjoy free hd?

    So in other words I am paying for the basic channels plus movies but also getting the HD stuff on top which I dont pay the £10 for.

    Not that I dont like it but I never use it connected via hdmi so its pointless, I just use the pvr function to record shows in part as I only have 2 hdmi sockets so I would have to remove cable from ps3/xbox every time I want to use hd

    In the novel "The Dice Man", the protagonist makes decisions in his life by the throw of dice. I'm going to write one called "The HUKD Man", the story of Ryouga - the man who lets HUKD make all the decisions in his life.

    To downgrade? about the 20th November and I rang back around the 21st December when I noticed they took out too much via DD and they said it was still active and admitted it said it should be cancelled on system and gave me a credit of £10 for the sub.

    You're asking for an opinion on your situation to help you make a decision surely otherwise why bother posting in the first place. Unless HUKD is now your personal diary?

    That sounds like a mouthful worded like that.

    Well you can say that possibly, I thought I might risk it before I posted but felt guilty so it was more that I wanted to feel less guilty if people said go for it, or if they said I shouldnt do it possibly changing mind so it does influence the outcome yeah.

    Have been given HD free for 4 months, have only watched one program in HD so far. Glad I don't and won't be paying for it.

    Hmmm I cancelled mine mid December & it's still on at the minute...sorry my input wasn't that useful then as yours should have ended by now. Perhaps wait for your next bill & see what they've charged you?

    Mine was the same for a while and then it just stopped. I think you can get BBC, ITV, Channel 4 HD as standard though.

    I received broadband gratis for about 3 years, so you maybe as lucky as I.

    My understanding is the only HD channels you pay for on sky are the premium ones (movies/sports).
    You will continue to get Sky1 Hd, BBC Hd etc free as part of the basic package.
    Unless its just a massive cock up by sky - but my mate did the same six months ago and he still gets the hd channels.

    You don't get Sky1 HD as part of the basic package.
