Hiya,

Probably posting this in very much the wrong place... but for the life of me, i couldn't see any "sky" related sections ?

I'm just about to move over from the UK, and have already shipped my stuff over, and i'm more than likely going to get Sky installed (as and when i actually find somewhere to live..)

Has any one got any comments / experience about My Sky HDI  ?, I understand it's only pretty recently been released ?

Cheers,

Havent got Mysky or Mysky HDI but have had a play with mysky.  Fantastic little product in terms of ability to record shows versus trying to wok it out on a dvd menu based on times!

 

The HDI streaming is limited to movies and you will have to pay ?$10 extra a month on top to get the High def sent to you..  Pretty expensive really.  Btw themods here are great and will move the post to the necessary place if required ;)

Thanks for the reply :)

I'm an extremely big fan of SKY+ (UK equiv to MySKY), and totally agree, it makes recording programmes so much easier.. I find it allows me to watch things at my pace.. Even my wife loves it ! (and more importantly, can operate it without my assistance!Wink)

The extra $10 a month for HD.... always a difficult one.. i've got a 1080p tv so, other than my PS3, i want to try and provide it with some good pictures !

If it makes you feel any better.... the HD content option in the uk is an Extra £20 a month ($50 +)

On another note... I'm not a big sports fan... other than Formula 1... am i right in thinking i'm going to have to fork out for Sports channels to get F1 coverage ?

Though in the UK you probably get many HD channels. Over here its 5, TV3 (FTA channel) Sport 1 & 2, Movies 1 & 2.
