      I don't think free is fair to Sky though. They are investing a lot of money into HD and take a hit on the cost of the box in the first place. 30 is a lot yes, but a HD box for 79 including delivery is still a very good price, especially when the opposition cannot get any near the quality, technology, or programming content.

      Hi

      To get this deal do I have to phone Sky or can it be done on the net? If net got a link please?
      It'll be just an upgrade as I have Sky+

      Free is fair.

      The take up of HD has been far below what was expected and it is plugged constantly on Sky.

      And yeah no matter how the swing it it's still 79.

      I really cannot see how you could qualify such a comment, Sky+HD takeup is phenomanal. Just look at Sky's latest results to back it up.

      I said it was far below what was expected.

      Not that there was a low take up.

      I am trying to find the article I read where they reduced the HD box price to boost sales of their HD service.
