Have been noticing recently that Discovery have been advertising Shark Week. One line in the ad I have noticed is that it says it will be in HD and at the end of the ad it gives the New Zealand times so you would have to imagine that sky approved the ad.

Has anyone heard elsewhere if this is something that is going to happen as this is the only time I have heard this. Would love to finally see Discovery go HD for a change.

mcraenz: Well they have enough bandwidth for popup kids movie channels over the holidays and 8! HD popup Olympics channels. They could save a VERY small amount of bandwidth by getting rid animal planet. Since the picture quality is so bad you can't really make out what's going on. And there are a few other channels that fall into that category. Sky doesn't really have a good balance between quality and quantity (both content and picture quality).


I think what they have a whole transponder of Sky Box Office channels so when things like the olympics come around they dump those channels and upgrade it to HD just for that period
