    If this is genuinely from the HD Marketing Manager, then this is very significant. Can you explain how you have direct access to the HD marketing manager?

    he is the same person who is responsible for product management of sky+. I spent a lot of time liaising with him directly last year when I was having major issues with faulty boxes and he settled everything for me...pulled out all the stops and was amazing. I kept his email since then just encase I had any further problems.

    How soon is very soon? :devil:

    Remember to marketing long term means 10+ years, to us IT gadget fans it means next week :)

    Like sharks that have to keep swimming to survive, it would seem that some people have to keep posting pointless threads in order to exist....

    Speculation can be great fun, or mildly diverting, but please do not present it as FACT!!!!!!!!!

    Rant over.

    They are just posting opinions of info they believe to be fact - who are you to say if it's right or wrong or if they shold post at all.

    How can so many people truely beleive they have the facts? Especially when hardly any of them have posted the same info?

    Perhaps everyone should question where their source has aquired their info? Then maybe they will realise that unless their source is virtually at the top of the foodchain in Sky, they haven't a clue.

    I am saying they are wrong.

    They believe it to be fact - because someone's granny knows someone who once sat on a bus beside a talking dog that knew someone who had met a guy from Tipton at the Circus who had once been in a lift with a man who had shared a hospital ward with an ex-submarine commander who had a son that knew a guy who had watched a football match beside a man who had once met a gravedigger that had an uncle who's MP had the same name as a flower that grew in the garden of the man who happened to work for sky....

    Tell you what kids, I BELIEVE that I have some magic beans....any takers?

    I believe it to be a fact, that Tipton has the highest concentration of pork scratching manufacturers inthe world - don't ask me how I know.

    but if you must - a guy in a pub about 3 miles away from Tipton told me. I didn't ask him about the Sky HD launch, although I doubt he would have known - it was 1994.

    I do find it interesting how a Marketing Manager at Sky a) ended up sorting out problems with faulty boxes, and b) remained friends with the upset customer to such an extent that he would release what is obviously embargoed information, probably at the risk of his job!

    NOT that I'm doubting the source of course :D

    The beans have many magical qualities...but first you must believe...

    Some grow £50.00 notes, some grant eternal life, and some sprout into a big HD transponder in your garden (or window box)...

    I do believe, I do, I do,I do,I do,I do,I do,I do,I do,I do - Honest :rolleyes:

    Can I have three beans that grow £50 notes, 2 beans that grant eternal life and one that will grow a HD transponder in the garden.

    Do you have any beans that will tell me the launch date / price and sub for the new HD box.

    I will pay whatever you want for them as long as you can wait until the first crop of £50 notes have come in - Thanks :smashin:

    Closing this thread.
    FYI I have spoken to the marketing manager for Sky HD and she gave me an indication of when the information would be made public. I'm not telling anyone what she said. However, if we find out before you do, and are allowed to tell you, we will do.
