Ive been thinking. Ive got the world package and everything which i think is 46-47 a week plus ive got sky HD.

Now are you allowed to cancel Sports and Movies and just sign up to HD as that way id still get my HD movie vhannles and 3 HD sprts channels or is this an obvious loophole that sky dont allow?

You only get HD movies and HD sports if you subscribe to the equivalent SD packages, it's only the non-premium HD channels which are not directly tied to any one specific SD MIX.

As you probably suspect if you got HD movies/sports included in just the tenner with only 1 MIX required we would all be laughing but SKY would go broke pretty quickly:)

You only get the HD movies if you subscribe to Sky Movies.
You only get the HD (Sky) sports channels if you subscribe to Sky Sports. Though you do still get Eurosport HD included in the HD Pack.

All explained on Sky's website. And on multiple threads on this very forum.

Twelve non-premium HD channels included in the HD Pack.
Plus three Sky Sports HD channels if Sky Sports subscription.
Plus the Sky Movies HD channels if Sky Movies subscription.
Plus Disney Cinemagic HD if you subscribe to all Sky Movies (rather than Sky Movies 1 or Sky Movies 2).
Plus three free HD channels (BBC, C4, Luxe).
Plue Sky Box Office HD if you want to pay extra...
