Cancelling SKY HD sub - what free HD channels will I receive

Apologies if this has been asked before however my search didn't throw up any recent results.

As part of a cost cutting exercise I'm thinking of cancelling my SKY HD sub. I've already got a 50% discount on the regular subs but SKY were unwilling to reduce the HD cost. If I cancel this and effectively go back to SKY+, albeit with a HD box, what HD channels can I expect to get for free? I'm assuming I'll get the BBC and ITV channels plus a few others thrown in for good measure. Are many people doing this and can someone confirm the free HD lineup?

Really? Thanks for info. I thought they were FTV, not part of HD Pack.
No - they are an ITV "experiment" to see how Sky subscription income works out - compared to the diminishing advertising take. Just like E4HD for C4.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Apologies logiciel - I couldn't find the thread as it is under the FreeSat sub topic. As I was asking a SKY specific question I didn't think to look there as FreeSat is a different service. Maybe a sticky here would be useful to?

Apologies for clogging up the board.

That's OK, your enquiry was perfectly all right, and your suggestion is something I've thought of doing.
