1. Yes

2. No - its only for a couple of weeks I believe - running for the duration of the Commonwealth Games. The pic specifically mentions MySky HDi customers.

there was some talk of prime on terrestrial going HD for the games only, so all is not lost mate.

No joy for those on satellite, unless SBS HD has some coverage perhaps?

I suspect that Freeview HD users are going to be screwed by Sky. TV Guide that has allot about the CW Games only mentions Prime HD on Sky and nothing about the FV platform..

Nah that's not likely to happen because then more people would see what was on those channels, and then they'd be more likely to watch them, and then the viewer numbers would go up and they could charge more for advertising on them, and what channel would possibly want that situation?

Games look great. I find I can only stand the standard def games channels for a short time before I switch back to Prime HD.

TOTALLY enjoying Prime in HD - what do we need to do to get this made permanent? Would be the death of some of the other channels......
