Correct. If you have the v1 box you have to pay £50 though some people have managed to get the 1TB v3 box for £25.
IMHO, Sky seem to have lost a bit of their innovative mojo. From being the first to provide HD broadcasts back in the day, their 4K launch was behind the curve and distinctly low key. HDR on Netflix now is welcome, but why has it taken so long? Also the Sky Q platform still feels "unfinished" and lacking a bit of polish, and there haven't been many updates recently.
Just tell the bloke on the phone that you are only interested in upgrading if you get the HDR box.As an upgrader from sky+hd would I be guaranteed a v3 box or do I have to pay the extra £50 to get one. Also I would want the 2tb version as that's the size of drive I already have.
and some of us have managed to get the V3 box by telling sky to sod off and install for free or this long term customer is sodding off completely...paid through the nose as an early adopter, wasnt going to pay again!
even though only had sky q 8 months I’ve got a v1 box so can’t get HDR. But not bothered at the moment as watch Netflix and Disney on tv app. If they started doing sky movies/sport and original content in HDR then that would make me want a new box.
i can't see them bending over to give you a box that they can charge someone else £50 for. Annoying as it is.Sounds a bit rough? I assume it must be a refurb then it it's a V1, if it was me I would be demanding a brand new V2 or V3. That's the problem with Sky owning these boxes, you have no control over what you get.
