You need another side note to specify that Discovery would be 720x576i rather than 544x576i once widescreen.

Discovery WS @ 1280x720 would be good.

I'd consider Sky if I could get

BBC HD - UK Version
HBO HD - US Version
Scify HD - US Version
Showtime HD - US + AU Versions
All of the HD AU Channels, plus the other HD FTA UK Channels

Getting Prime in HD would be an added bonus, but I'd prefer to see it go HD on freeview.

I'd like to see a fulltime feed of Sky News UK. This is available in Aussie as well as Sky news.

not liable to see Scy Fy here as Sky seems to want to gear everything to the female audiance now, just look at UK TV, it should now be named soap opera TV. Other channels seem to be following suite, the box is reality TV Central and Commedy Central dosent seem to be able to get new material as the have bee rerunning specific MASH episodes (ojnt the third timne around now). Movies programming isnt the best at the moment and History Channel should now be renamed Theology Channel with Hitler breaks :-)

I second that. Despite Australia being our closest neighbour, their news is very rarely relevant to us and rarer still of any interest. Ultimately, I'd like to see them introduce Sky News Active which has been around in the UK for over a decade now. You press the red button on your remote and can watch any one of several Sky News feeds or read the news on-screen. In Australia, this option gives access to Sky News UK anytime you want it.

I would really like to see SyFy US more than anything. Discovery and History Channels would be next choice. But I would also want Sky to update MySky HD hard drive sizes at the same time. Any more recorded Hi Def programmes on a regular basis and I would be limited to about 15 programmes, including daily news. If my wife archived any Living channel programmes etc in high definition I would have to delete things daily.
