      Sky HD Boxes not on website

      Are sky stopping the sale of sky HD boxes and moving to Sky Q? There is nothing on their website about sky HD.

      Also is the price the same as HD and Sky Q in terms of packages or do you have to pay extra to use the Q box?

      Sky are now only supplying Sky+ HD STBs (500GB/250GB version) where the customer is unable to get Sky Q.

      There are a few places. These are generally flats where the communal dish hasn't been upgraded by the management company.

      Hello All
      There are still various Satellite Supply Outlets' Online' that sell the Sky+ HD (W) 2tb Boxes (not SkyQ )
      Brand New with Warranty a friend of mine purchased one about six weeks ago to replace his failed
      box & was very Happy with His purchase He had no problems locking his viewing card to the New Box
      apart from a Call from Sky asking Why he had not chosen a Q Box............??
      To which His reply was that he did not want SkyQ with the additional Costs involved & He was quite Happy
      with the package He has had for many years.

      Just a Thought................' Off for a Beer'
