    Hello


    Having watched some blueray films on our new TV the quality of fantastic. My question would upgrading our Sky + box to HD (and £10 month) be worth it? As I may as well make use of the better quality TV?

    We only have the basic 6 mix's

    Has anyone upgraded without movies / sport?

    I even have an old (12 months old) Sky HD box but have been told (not from sky) that I cannot use this and just pay the £10 a month) as it needs setting up?


    views good or bad please

    I am on the brink of cancelling my HD as there isnt much of it to choose from and for £10 a month plus another £10 to have it on the multi room, its just not worth it in my opinion. I dont have movies or sport either.

    Its worth noting though if you cancel any mixes or HD your Sky + gets wiped of any programmes that you recorded on those channels!

    Depends what package you are going with and how many of those channels are available in HD I have a 1080 HD tv aswell as a HD projector and screen but use them for gaming and films more than the HD tv available. Plus i don`t feel like giving Sky another £10 a month for limited channels.

    Tesco have started selling a SkyHD box, for £199 you get the box, installation and 2 months of 95% of all the channels...
