      It reads to me that an existing customer from xxx date with a main box and multiroom box will now get free HD subs.

      I read it the same as James:

      who have at least 1 compatible box and do not have HD mix already

      It looks like we are going to be paying the HD sub for a while longer if this is correct.

      ^^ Remember this is only a rumour, granted though, confirmed by a couple of different sources. Unlike the last one.

      To me it looks like Sky are wanting everyone (or at least more numbers) on HD subs. Years ago, we were told on a visit to Sky Towers, that at the time, if Sky needed to meet x amount of subscribers for Movies etc then they would give it away free for some for some time. This was to keep the studios happy etc

      Maybe this is the start of free HD for all, it makes sense, as then there is no reason for anyone to go to Virgin Media really. Unless of course, you want to search for dinosaurs on a Tivvo Box.

      Re: Free HD Subs For Some Customers With More Than One HD Box And No HD Subscription?

      This is a FACT and not a rumour. Sky have upgraded my mother in law but she didnt know what was going on as the letter didnt arrive until 3 days later. I phoned Sky and spoke to an advisor who said she would be getting it free as she has 2 multi rooms. So I asked when will I be getting it as I have 2 as well. He read it out and it stated for people who dont have a HD subscription at the moment but have the multi rooms. I asked if I cancelled my HD package would I get it and he said he didnt know. He suggested everyone will get it eventually but didnt know when. I said how unfair is it to give it Free to people who dont pay for multi rooms and HD.

      I feel this is another thing that makes Sky customers want to leave! The way loyal customers get treated is unfair. This should have been rolled out with the people already paying for both and then given free to the rest. The letter says Hi loyal customer we are giving you HD for free. So does that mean I am not a Loyal customer even though I have been with Sky for over 15 years?

      Re: Free HD Subs For Some Customers With More Than One HD Box And No HD Subscription?

      If people are getting this for free because they have Multiroom etc and no HD subs, then hopefully, it is the start of the HD subs being withdrawn. Hopefully once all those people are on the HD subs, Sky will then begin to roll it out to everyone else.

      It would be handy to see the letter if it could be scanned and personal information removed?

      Looks like the original rumour was true, but then dismissed as not going to happen, but then reinstated.

      So, to qualify for this offer, it's necessary to have a minimum of 2 multi-room subs (i.e. a total of 3 subscribed STBs)?
