Sky introduced 2 new MTV (classic and hits) music channels recently.

The content is great,  but, let down by poor picture quality. 

Wouldn't it be nice if these channels were in HD. I already pay for an HD 'ticket' , but, so few channels are in HD.

Considering 99% of the videos on MTV wouldn't have been filmed in HD I don't really see the point..

Yep - i have thought this too and would love it. However I think a problem would be that all the older clips were shot in pre-HD days so limited advantage in broadcasting them in HD.

Sky has limited bandwidth from the satellite which means they can realistically only do a few channels in HD without paying a gajillion dollars to upgrade.

I would rather choose any other channel to be in HD over MTV
