What is high definition TV?

HD, or high definition is the next step in the evolution of television, which uses the latest technology to bring clearer images in to your home – pictures that are up to five times sharper than standard definition TV depending on the size of your television and type of programming.

You can enjoy movies, sports, entertainment, documentaries and news with the HD Pack.

How do I get Sky+HD?

To get started with Sky+HD, you need an HD ready TV, a Sky+ HD Box inclusive Sky Viewing Card and the HD Pack (which contains all Sky HD channels). Build your Sky TV package from just £19 a month, and then add the HD Pack for £10 per month extra. The channels you receive with the HD Pack depend on your Sky TV package chosen on online activation.

What HD channels can I watch?

You can watch up to 50+ HD channels with Sky, Europe's widest range of HD channels. Experience everything from sports and movies, to arts, drama, documentaries and news, all in stunning high definition. The HD channels you receive depend on your Sky TV package. For example, if you have the standard definition Sky Sports, Sky Movies or Disney Cinemagic channel in your package you will receive the high definition version of that channel if available in the HD Pack.

With over 600 different films shown every month on twelve dedicated high definition movie channels and more sports in HD than ever before, you can now catch even more of the action and drama in stunning high definition. Plus, you can now add ESPN HD to Sky Sports HD for £9 extra a month and enjoy 115 available Barclays Premier League matches.

Do I need a special dish to watch TV in high definition?

You can record up to 60 hours of high definition shows, or up to 185 hours of standard definition programmes. The Sky+HD 1TB box has one terabyte of personal storage and can store up to 240 hours of high definition (HD) television – that’s four times more than our latest Sky+HD box. Plus, the increased memory size for Sky Anytime allows you to watch up to 100 hours of on demand HD content.

What do I need to get Sky+HD?

hdreadyAll you need to enjoy Sky+HD is an HD ready TV (make sure it has the 'HD ready' logo), a Sky+HDTV box and the HD Pack. Then, to watch programmes in stunning high definition, you'll need to select the HD Pack on Online Activation.

How to get Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound with HD?

Many HD programmes are broadcast in stunning Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, delivering top quality audio to accompany your HD picture. In order to immerse yourself in surround sound, you'll need a compatible home cinema system. Don't worry if you don't have one – you'll still experience the same amazing picture quality of high definition and stereo sound.

How do I know if my TV is HD ready?

Look for the 'HD ready' sticker logo on your television, or check your TV's instructions for the HD ready sign in its specifications. If you're buying a wide or large screen (anything over 37 inches), you'll need a TV capable of displaying the full 1080 lines to experience the best quality picture that Sky+HD can bring you. Many types of TV programmes are best suited to the higher resolution of 1080i, while others may look better in the progressive 720p format. Sky+HD can receive both 720p and 1080i broadcasts, allowing each HD channel to choose to broadcast in the format best suited to their type of programmes.

I have an HD ready TV. Can I watch HD programmes?

No. In order to watch programmes in high definition on your HD ready TV, you will also need an HD receiver, like the Sky+HD box with Viewing Card subscription.

 

What is an HDMI cable?

hdmiHDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide the highest-quality home entertainment experience by delivering crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video via a single cable. It's the best way to connect your Sky+HDTV box to an HD ready TV.
