I am getting Sky HD in the next three weeks :thumbsup:

Can anyone confirm the content/channels currently available in particular what sport/s is being shown on Sky Sports HD ? IS there only one Sports HD channel as I heard there maybe two ?

Are there any new HD channels in the pipeline ?

Aren't Sky about to launch another HD Sports channel? Probably wrong but I thought I heard that somewhere.

However, US broadcaster Rainbow has been granted licenses for two new HD channels on Sky....some fashion channel called 'Ultra HD' and an extreme sports channel called 'Rush HD'. No idea when they go live though.

Is it possible to place all the HD channels together so you don't have to keep scrolling through the menu. ( mine isn't due for connection till 25.08.06) ??

They are already together when you press the red button in the planner.
