    Well I was going to go for a freesat HD box but the cheapest one is about £69, without a recorder, so was going to go for this as it would cost currently £249.99 for a mid range recorder. I just want the free HD channels for now and when the subscription drops down which it will hopefuly with 3D TV in april then I might get a bigger package.

    So £69 to sky when I was going to get bb and tv with them seems reasonable.:)

    I think you only get BBC HD & Channel 4 HD though. ITV HD only shows the footy. Worth getting the sub for the Discovery channels etc. :thumbsup:

    Only one I'd probably be interested in would be Sky1. Don't think I want to spend £10 currently. There surely will be more channels popping up in due time.

    Yeah, Discovery HD and Nat Geographic HD are superb to watch, also now E4 HD and Sky1 HD worth paying the extra for.

    Wouln't rush for the Sky 1 HD channel as 70% of the days viewing isn't in HD and has bars down the side. :x Alright if you like lost etc but i don't watch any progs on there other than the occasional Simpsons.

    Yeh, my main reason was for the world cup in HD, guessing the bbc and ITV will still have full rights to the england matches - quaters/semis/final etc.

    Still champions league also, and maybe some Europa if it finally comes round.

    Yes.........they will be good for that. As long as ITV doesn't do it's usual trick of shunting matches onto ITV 4 as no HD for that.

    BBC HD service is great though and often has better programs on than BBC 1
