    Presumably you mean is it rated as standard or high speed as per HDMI guidelines.

    HDMI :: Manufacturer :: HDMI 1.4 :: Finding the Right Cable

    If its not carrying one of the logos pictured, then its not rated at all, that doesnt mean it wont work, it just means sky didnt pay the 20k or so it costs to have a cable manufacturing line rated.

    Sky operate at 1080i for now, that only requires the standard speed logo/ suite of tests. Pretty much any functioning cable can do that.

    But also Sky supply short cables only, so should be able to handle just about anything you can throw at it, same as any other short HDMI cable.
    In general, assuming half decent mechanical quality, you only run into issues with HDMI cables at 8 meters or more.
