Sky+ HD query

I thinking about getting Sky HD mainly because my old Sky+ box is knackered and needs replacing and I now have a full HD tv.

If I buy the HD box am I tied into a minimum term contract? If I decide I know longer want HD do I get to keep the box and loose the HD channels or do they take the HD box back and give you an old Sky+ box?

Usually a minimum 12 month contract.

If you cancel your whole sub you still keep the box, & get whatever free channels there are at the time, BBCHD & Luxe at the mo.

Or reduce the package & get the non premium HD ch's

You own the box, so if you wanted to you could keep your old sky+ box as well if you wanted to.

But you will get to keep the HD box after the 12 month contract is up, and like it has been mentioned in another post, you will still the FTA HD channels (which is currently BBCHD,LUXEHD,RUSHHD,CHANNEL4HD).
