      I reckon hd charge dropped.. But that is probably just hope more than expectation.

      Seeing as you have "liked" every mention of dropping the HD charge that has to be it and a good move it would be too as a) it's good PR, b) it's good for subscribers who get a better deal and c) it kills VM's "free HD" sales spiel stone dead, which is always a plus in my book.

      On a separate note, this forum needs a "Rumour Mill" section so we can all indulge in a little unfounded gossip!

      I have confused you now, I said 'Thank You' and I gave it a like.

      Shouldn't be much longer now, just waiting for a PM and Sky have not replied so far.

      Incidentally, I agree with a) b) and c)

      Oh and the Rumour Mill section as well, may do that shortly.

      By dropping the HD charge it would they give virgin media some serious thinking to do with there TV service its already more expensive than sky, so by removing the HD charge Sky would become even more cheaper and provide more HD channels

      PS - We never thought this thread would get this long. We were hoping that we would have heard more last night, but we didn't. So sorry if it seems we were messing about initially.

      It would be a good move. As HD becomes more commonplace it feels poor value having to pay the charge now. Having it dropped would make Sky feel a decent value proposition again for sure even without the deals.

      Re: Interesting Rumour Alert

      That will be a 10 drop in a monthly sub then if it happens?

      Is that right?

      I wonder where they will claw it back though?

      Probably planning for a massive sub rise early next year!

      Re: Interesting Rumour Alert

      it'd be interesting to know how many don't pay the charge who have hd boxes but avoid the cost. It might increase sales if people feel they are getting fair value.
