    How do they get away with charging you for BBC HD should this not be free as its paid for by your licence fee

    It is free. At present it is only a trial service but picture quality is superb.

    They are not charging you for the BBC HD channel, you can buy a Sky HD box (very expensive from Sky if you don't take their sub) and get a freeview card and watch without monthly charge.

    You can also get other HD recievers that recieve BBC HD.

    Its a good service, but not on very much and lots of repeats - no way would I pay for it until it expands.

    You dont need the card to get BBC hd, if you have upgraded to HD just take your card out of the box and go to channel 145 and you will still receive BBC hd

    I would pay more to watch BBC HD. It's by for the best HD channel out there.
    It's a must have.

    For sports SKY is currently unbeatable.
