Steve – the Sky box offers no option for HD, it is being screened on the HD channel, but it’s still standard definition. Usually the BBC HD is not as crisp as Sky HD, but if I swap between the two, it’s clearly still standard definition on the BBC HD channel.
Not seen anyone else mention this yet, but the BBC are not broadcasting in HD. According to the on-screen display on my Sky box (and my eyes) it is only standard definition. Is this a stipulation of the deal with Sky? No HD when they’re both live?
