      If I cancel Sky HD

      After being a HD user for more than 12 months I am going to cancel the HD service. If I do this will they leave my existing Sky+ HD box in place or will I have to get a non HD Sky+ box which has a smaller hard disk?

      Cheers

      And it will work fine as a non HD unit?

      Yes, you just won't get all the HD channels that you would have gotten if subscribed.

      Sorry to barge in on your thread.

      Just wondering if anybody can confirm that in these circumstances (i.e. cancelling just the HD Mix), the normal SKY+ services will still be available on the other subscribed mix(es) - without needing any separate SKY+ subscription.

      Cheers

      If you have a Sky TV subscription the Sky+ services are free. The subscription for this was dropped some months ago.

      Re: If I cancel Sky HD - Anytime still only HD!!

      I recently cancelled HD not benefiting much. However most of the Anytime programs are only HD so can't be watched. All the movies are & most of anyother interesting ones. I started to really like anytime so I phoned. 1st lady told me to clear it on services/settings & she would make sure I get normal programs. Takes a few days to come back but when they did still 95% HD. I phoned again and was told I was mis-informed the first time & that it can't be done but I should have a bit of a mix & I have to live with it. The only non-HD programs are a few useless channels. I this this is crazy but suspect they might hope people will go back to HD. What it makes me do is try really hard for alternatives to Sky. Their last over charging issue made we look hard at what I really needed & downgraded my subscription from 67 to 40'ish (inc. HD downgrade) so shot themselves in foot a bit.
