      Can anyone clarify something for me?

      If I was to take an HD subscription and multiroom (to get around the installation fee) do you get charged 10 for HD and 10 for multiroom?

      I'm sure someone on the forums reported that they only pay a single 'premium fee' (10) and not both? - either HD, + or multiroom. (not sure if it was as part of a retention deal?)

      I know if you have an HD subscription, you don't pay for + aswell, but does it apply to multiroom too?

      you will pay 10pm for HD & 10pm for MR, retention dont do deals with Free MR,if you have a STB and want an HD you will not pay for the install.

      Steve

      Because you're getting a much better Box aren't you?

      The Sky+ Box can record TV programmes and has it's own Hard Drive

      The difference covers the price of getting a better box, not the fact the installation is any different - although it does need 2 wires from the dish instead of one so there is probably a few minutes more work to do.

      I thought of that but was wondering if Sky are fitting Dual LNB's as standard or not whether you have SKy Plus or not?

      I'd imagine it may be cheaper for them to buy Dual LNB's in massive bulk then singles', Duals and Quads?

      And make it easier and faster to fit people with either Sky Plus or Multiroom in the future?

      Re: Sky - New rumours

      Now what will this and
      this news have on some of the rumours? Do you think it will concentrate the minds of Sky, so that some of the rimours become fact?

      That 2nd link didn't work for me

      I reckon if the BBC and ITV are in charge it will be crap anyway

      The current Freeview system is outdated in terms of compression technology - they could easily get 25% more channels on the same amount of space then they do now but it would of course mean scrapping millions of freeview boxes.

      Sky's upcoming (subject to OFCOM approval) digital terrestrial service won't be Freeview-based...while it'll be digital terrestrial, like Freeview, it's gonna be subscription-based, not free. And it'll require a special Sky DTT box, not a normal Freeview box or IDTV (as they plan to use MPEG-4 rather than MPEG-2, plus it'll use Sky's proprietary conditional access system).
