I asked sky if I just got an HD box (from say ebay) and replaced my old box would i have to take a 12 month subscription even though I dont want to get the HD subscription. They said no matter how I got the box either from them or from some one else I would have to pay to use the HD box and subscribe to the HD channels at 9.75 a month for at least 12 months, i could then drop back to just sky+.

Does any one know if this is right?

I dont want the HD sub. I just wanna use the HD box
If you don't want the HD sub you don't have to pay for anything except the box, and you can buy a box from ebay, just ring sky and pair your card with the new box.
