So hang on.
At the moment I have Sky HD in the living room and Sky+ in the bedroom
I pay right now for Sky sub + HD sub + Multiroom
Are you saying its free to upgrade the Sky+ to HD
or would it be:
Sky sub + 2x HD sub + Multiroom?
why are they sticking to their guns on this?
Card is tied to the box I'm afraid
Whilst you cannot get premium channels (movies and sport), if you put the card in another box it will show you the regular channels you have in your sub.
Not sure if that applies to HD boxes, as I don't have 2 to try, but if so then at least you would get Sky One HD, artsworld HD, NG HD, Disco HD, history HD.
Anyone tried that?
Just to get this straight,please.
If you have an HD ready TV in the multiroom room and at present a Sky + box you could replace this with a Sky HD box and not pay the extra £10 pm to get HD mirror channels in there. But by simply temporarily swapping your card from the main HD box into the multiroom (new) HD box this would enable all channels bar the movies and sport?
If that is the case then it is certainly some good news but it also makes the Sky policy of an extra £10 HD sub on top of the £10 multiroom even less justifiable. Because it makes that extra £10 only an issue if you take out the top package. Those paying for HD without movies or sports would get all the channels mirrored this way without any need to pay Sky extra, but those who already DO pay Sky the top whack get a less good deal.
This makes the second £10 HD sub even more absurd and surely totally justifies the need for Sky to think this through.
No more of a con than any other supplier who lock you down to installing/running their software on one machine.
