Reading that provides a sure bet that Sky won't have that polarisation issue they had with the current satellite when it launched

So at least a few more years before freeview satellite can do HD or even expand?

Would love HD satellite (unless someone could blow up the hill between us and the not so local terrestrial transmitter).

Seems ridiculous that they can't come to an agreement and just unencrypt the Sky HD versions of 1,2,3.
I know that there are issue with old STB's but the time has come. Waste of money providing two satellite streams.

Roger Wilco. 10 bucks for the dynamite 1000000 bucks for resource consent sounds about right.
