      Definately not a rumour anymore then as we had just had our Sky magazine and it mentions it on the letter. Basically you paid 10 before and this got you all the HD channels (although assuming not the sports and movies HD unless you had the basic sports and movies packs?). So I have 2 mixes plus sports/movies at the moment, but get Sky News HD, Disney HD and Eurosport HD free of charge. I think that this change will be that unless I fork out another 1 for each of the above (news pack, kids mix?, eurosport pack) I will loose these HD channels from the start of October. Can anyone confirm this? Not too bothered about Disney and Eurosport but Sky News HD does look quite nice to have on in the background. Probably not worth yet more cash though I guess. Just checked their site and this does mention the HD channels received depending onyour basic subscription so Sky are clean for all new customers as well

      Like sky don't make enough profit from HD subs. Reckon they should let you have the HD channels on multi-room for free instead of having to fork out a second tenner a month, to make up for it.

      Sky News is a free channel though isn't it, as I don't subscribe to the news mix and get the SD version of the channel so would it be the same for the HD one or will they say that you have to have the news mix to see it ?

      You may probably be right. I don't have the news mix but get the standard channel as I guess we may get the sky news HD channel which would be a bit of a result

      Having read extracts from the the letter in another forum it reads to me very much like Sky may be dropping the HD-Mix entirely from October 5th - and that you will thus get the HD channels appropriate to the SD Mixes at no extra charge!

      While perhaps unlikely they will have to do something - I, for one, will move to Virgin at year end if they have most of the Sky HD channels then and charge no extra for them!

      Sky News has never been a free channel! In Sky's literature it has always been a subscription channel which is currently not encrypted. You can bet, for certain, that Sky NewsHD will stay needing the News&Events Mix.

      So it is a free channel then.

      I do agree with you regarding the HD Mix, it does seem likely that this could be dropped come October, there are rumours that certain Sky CS have said this is likely, but I guess we will find out for sure in the coming months.

      been told by town centre sky sales adviser that the HD Pack of 10 a month could be drop out because of Virgin Media, BT Vision TV will not charged the HD. Sky could follow it in October. Sky had reached agreement deal with virgin and BT vision to share with BSKY deal.
