You've probably seen the ads
http://www.vodafone.co.nz/tv/vodafone-tv/

Offering "HD at no extra cost"

But in the fine print... "HD access requires HD capable TV and you must subscribe to HD channels"

Isn't that extra cost ?

Confusing ?

Misleading ?

Scam ?

 It's simply saying VF are not going to charge you extra to get HD like sky do on their premium channels.

"HD access requires HD capable TV" - States the obvious.... We'll broadcast HD to you but you're not going to be able to benifit from it if you have a non HD TV.


"you must subscribe to HD channels" You're not going to get any HD broadcast if you're not subscribed to a channel that is in HD, Everyone is automaticly subscribed to channels on Freeview that are in HD,

Sky charges a HD ticket fee so basically all channels. VF don't charge the HD ticket so again all of them

IIRC Sky Movies, Sports and SOHO are the HD channels apart from the FTA ones
