Nope you need a SKY hd subscription which I think is about £20 more a month

Might be able to but I cant say for certain.

If you have Sky+, you can buy a Sky HD box and plug it straight in (Sky HD uses the same connections as the Sky+ box).

Then whack your card in the Sky HD box, ring them up to pair the card with the new box & get them to activate the HD channels (£10 per month more). The only thing is, the top package will then cost you over £50 per month..............

I had a similar question on an AV forum, according to them the BBC HD channel is free you just need an HD sky box and a valid (not HD) sky card.

And the ]Channel 4 HD station will be free when it starts.

Also think BBC HD is free as well!

TBH - I just can't justify the £10 a month extra charge for the HD service that Sky offer!

Why bother spending all that cash on a HD box if you dont subscribe to the HD channels (movies, sport etc).

Either do it properly, wait til they drop the £10 sub, or get a HD Technomate box with dish & get the FTA HD channels from overseas
