    Hi All
    Am I right to presume that those who are not interested in Hi-Def TV at the outset, will still be able to receive Sky as it is today? And to watch HI-DEF DVD,would require a New DVD player and HI-DEF TV?

    Thanks
    Alan

    Almost certainly - it would be commercial suicide for Sky to plan it otherwise!



    And to watch HI-DEF DVD,would require a New DVD player and HI-DEF TV?

    To watch HD-DVD (when it 's available) in full HD resolution, then yes you are correct.
    However, you could still watch HD-DVDs on "lower resolution than true HD" displays, providing the display had the necessary inputs.
    Even the lowest res large screen plasma/ WS projector (ie 854x480) should get a bit of a boost from a true HD source, even it wouldn't be true HD viewing!
