    Why oh why?

    Just watched forst 2 episodes of Day 4 snd see the end its in DD. Now I know Sky 1 dont transmit in DD why not?

    Surely its not a bandwidth problem?

    They have limited resources (yeag really :) ), when SKY movies 1,2 and 3 started to use DD they actually moved the hardware responsible from the boxoffice channels.
    I assume the marketing people decided that the extra costs of purchasing new hardware to allow SKY1 to broadcast in DD to the small percentage of subscribers who have SKY+ and have a suitable amp is simple not cost effective.
