I realise this question has been touched on here some time ago. I'm on a Sky basic plan and I'm thinking of upgrading my old decoder and getting MySky HDi. I really want HD but only on the FTA channels. Don't need sport or movie channels (already have copious HD-DVD/blu-rays) It seems from the Sky website, and the team leader I spoke to at Sky, that the only way to get the "HD ticket" is to also subscribe to movies or sports, or forgo the $10 month by buying multiroom. It seems stupid that I should have to do this, or even pay $10 extra for an HD ticket, when the FTA channels are free on Freeview HD. Can anyone confirm whether you can in fact currently get TV3 in HD, without paying for those extras. If so, do you know what the plan is when TV1&2 come online in HD.
And one more thing. Are these boxes stable yet? I believe there were lots of problems at the begining.
