Sky HD review

 

The one they're all trying to beat

Glorious HD picture quality ; Fantastic channels

How much detail is too much detail? Sky's HD box reveals what sometimes is better left unknown

In terms of costs, yes you are paying for the Sky HD box and an extra £10 a month, but I’m definitely saving money in the long run as I'm no longer buying DVDs (with lower picture quality) which I only end up watching once.

Sky HD

 

Sky's finally got there with HD broadcasts - but is it worth the hype?

HD pictures can be almost unbelievably good, good connectivity, good design, nice price for the box

10 extra subscription seems a bit steep, occasional software glitches, variable HD picture quality

Its connections panel intriguingly sports both component and HDMI outputs for HD pictures. Originally Sky had suggested that it would only allow HD pictures to leave via the HDMI socket because of HDMI's more advanced anti-piracy measures. So...

Our man was one of the first UK viewers to get Sky HD installed in his country mansion. Now we get his first impressions of the television revolution that is Sky High Definition.
