Sky are advertising 4 dedicated channels for Sochi, can we assume these will be available in HD?

Two extra HD channels and the same channels in SD for non MySky punters.

Really!? where are you getting your info? That seems a bit odd because to the average user that would seem like just 2 special channels but they are advertising 4. 4 dedicated HD channels seems reasonable considering they had 8 HD channels for the summer Olympics.

Same place they got the bandwidth to stand up the 8! HD channels for the London 2012 summer Olympics. According to the "Discovery going HD" thread:

Djshadow: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.

On the ad you can see sky sport 3, 4, 5, & 6. So they will just use the normal 3 & 4 channels plus two additional. You would think it will be in hd as they currently have ss5 there in hd for the tennis. But this is sky we're talking about...
