Just a few questions about sky hd.

If i paid for box and installation. Does it cost an extra £10 a month to get like an entertainment mix i.e. sky 1 and bbc hd etc?

As it says "taken with a hd mix (£10)

Because if its only £10 with an hd mix i might as well get sky+hd

Cheers, also peoples reviews on it would be great too

You cant get sky HD for just £10pm............... You cant get anything from sky subscription wise for £10. Think that answers your question! Cheapest Ive seen mentioned was £17 but that was with just one of the 6 channel mixes.

Wait until next year. I think June, it is planned to roll out a whole host of new HD channels on Sky. There will be loads. At that time Sky will be giving the HD boxes away to sell the new HD service. You'll probably find the £10 charge will disappear too :thumbsup:

had mine instaled today im inprest with it,next job is to put a 1 tb hard drive into it to give me about 75 hours of hd recording space instead of the pthetic 16 thats standard

But it says £10 HD MIX so i already have all channels except sports and movies and so if i pay £10 for entertainment mix i get sky 1 hd and fx hd etc for £10. Surely this is what the £10 is for otherwise what is the £10 for?

Yep it is an extra £10 a month for all the HD channels ontop of what you already pay.

10£ is for the hd content, you must have at lest 1 mix so you are ok go for it and enjoy

So i just pay £10 for i.e. entertainement mix.

If i wanted to cancel the HD entertainment mix at any time, would i be in a contract? so if i took up HD entertainment mix for £10 a month would i still have to pay it for 12 months or can you just cancel it and take it up again when you want?

u pay 17 pounds for the mix eg entertainment

then u pay another 10pounds on top of that for Sky+HD

So in total you would pay a min of 27pounds per month

You'd have to fulfil the 12 month contract. Mine finished a few months ago and I just dropped back to the free HD channels ie. BBC HD and Channel 4HD.

yep i got 3 multi rooms two are sky plus and the main box down stairs which is hd i have all the channels movies and sports and i pay an extra £10 and month to get hd channels

You pay the extra £10 per monh for the actual hd channels like bbc1hd, the movie channels in hd etc, you also have to have it for 12 months minimum

The £10 will get you the HD equivalent channels of which you already have the SD versions. ie. Sky 1. You'll also get Discovery HD, FX HD, etc. etc. as long as they're part of your current SD package. You'll get BBC HD and C4 HD even if you don't pay the Sky £10 sub but obviously this deal is tied to a 12 month £10pm HD contract.

But you are only renting the box aren't you? So you can't open it up and mess with it.
