    hi apologies if this has been covered but i cannot find clear clarification on costs involved in me upgrading to sky hd.
    i currently have sky+ in living room and a standard box upstairs for multiroom.
    on the full package plus sky broadband max so pay £63.50 a month(i think)
    skys deal has free installation if i take multiroom but as i already have that how does this work?
    thought about buying an hd box and installing myself but then if i move the sky+ box upstairs i don't have the second feed to get full use of this box so would need another feed installed.
    whats the cheapest way to get sky hd on my setup and if i don't bother using sky+ upsairs would i have to pay the £10 a month hd sub or would this be incorporated in my current payment?
    cheers

    cheers for reply. on thinking about it i don't need sky+ upstairs so if i just swapped my sky+ box with a HD one and kept standard box upstairs would i still pay £63.50 for sky hd and and a standard multiroom box?
    would keep the sky+ box as backup if anything went wrong with the hd one.
    thanks

    You'll still have to pay the £10 a month for HD, so your total would be £73.50

    Are you sure?

    When we had HD installed, we moved our + box to the other room. Installation was free, and we only (!) pay £63.50 per month for a HD box and a + box with all the channels.

    The OP currently pays £63.50 per month as he has Broadband max and therefore would be paying £73.50 total once upgraded to HD.

    Surely it's the standard package rate (e.g £43) plus £10 for HD and £10 for multiroom

    If you don't need 2 separate feeds (i.e ok for same channels on both boxes) you could run upstairs box from RF2 on the HD box and then the multiroom sub would disappear
