Why did I upgrade to my new set top ?
I like the recording part but picture quality is the same as the old set top box even after upgrading TV DVD player and Amp.

Hmmmm digital quality  don't think so, Freeview digital quality is WOW AWESOME NICE DETAILED.

So after many sleepless nights thinking about why did I spend all that money on upgrading my equipment I realized how stupid I FORGOT TO RING TELSTRACLEAR  AND CROSS THEIR PALMS WITH TEN BUCKS A MONTH.

Now you may think what a Cheap Charlie ,ten bucks aint much but it is about 120 smakaroos  a year ,but I think that having a digital set top box and digital this and digital that that I would receive a nice clear detailed digital picture on my TV screen as part of a normal service.

Oh how naive I am.

Malboo: Yes Freeview is HD on set top  yes Tv decoder is HD but why isn't Telstraclear Sports and Movies HD without the extra monthly payment

It is a Digital age


Simple answer to that is because Sky TV charge extra for these HD channels. Most of TelstraClear content is sourced from Sky, so they're simply passing on the costs.
