The web site still shows movies (channel 30 up) as HD, but on Sky Guide there's no HD after the channel name.


As all other channels have HD after name wondering what's going on there.

Been that way for a little while now hasn't it?


Since they renamed the movie channels to things like Family Movies, Extra Movies, Classic Movies etc.

Just noticed it.


I changed it to West World pop up which has no HD after it either, put the decoder on Pass Through and TV reported it as a 1080i picture.


So can no longer tell what's HD by looking at channel name.

Yes they have dropped HD from their long standing HD channels. I'm sure it was mentioned here previously, or via press release.
