to be fair when I left the UK in 2015 Sky and virgin both charged extra for HD too, which is daft in this day and age.

 

 

Yep.  It is still standard practice.  So no point in complaining people just get on with it.  Strangely enough if you buy or rent movies on iTunes there are different prices for SD and HD too.

Netflix too charge more in monthly fees for HD content, although there is an actual cost to them in using more bandwidth. Foxtel in Australia also charge AU$10 per month for an HD access ticket. Unfortunately it's a case of if you want better quality you need to pay for it.

Sorry what's the latest deal that the last 5 pages are talking about but not really specifying/telling how to get it?

Depends on what you want. I signed up last month for My Sky + Basic + Sports + HD ticket for $50. The gist of the deal is it is $39.95 for My Sky + one premium packages (Sport or Movies or Rialto or Soho or Arts, etc..) for $49.95 if you want two premium channels. If you want HD ticket, it's $9.95 more per month. Minimum 6 months contract (ETF is the full monthly price), prices are locked in for 12 months, no installation fee. Standard install, domestic prices only.. Cannot have been a Sky subscriber in the past 30 days. To signup call 0800 4SKYTV, which is a telesales team, not part of Sky TV directly.

It can be any premium channel, when I first got the deal in 2015, I choose Sports + Rialto. Others choose SoHo as a premium channel, usually with either Sports or Movies.

How long do you get this pricing before they want to hike the rate?

 

And, at that time, can you walk away without penalty?

Cheers - last question: do you need to say anything special to get the deal?
