Sadly restricted to YouView boxes, which for Vision+ box owners means losing SS5 and also for those not being served by COM7 services losing BBC Four HD and BBC News HD.
I can't get BBC 4 via my aerial where I am but that's no problem as it plays in HD on iPlayer; I have to put up with the news though. I suppose it all depends how much Spanish football, and Championship football you watch wether it's worth switching or not.
Can't record though. There's also the recording issue of being unable to pad recordings out that can be done on V+ boxes, that gets over a number of YV inaccurate recording timing problems. Will probably cancel SS on BT and buy the whole pack from NOW TV at £31.99 per month via AppleTV, albeit with the latency issue.
BT is delighted to be able to offer its customers Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 in High Definition from today, October 15th 2015. BT has offered the two channels to its TV customers for some years, but previously in just standard definition.
Customers will need a YouView Set top box from BT set to receive the channels in HD. Customers with the old Vision box can swap for £35 for a YouView+ box or £49 for a YouView+ UHD box to enjoy the action in HD. Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 will cost £27 a month or £21.50 for either of the channels individually.
The new offer means that BT customers can enjoy more of the Barclays Premier League in HD if they also take BT Sport.
Unfortunately I think you will find BT are making very little (if anything) from this and the whole cost is going back to sky. Unfortunately SKY will charge BT extra for the Sky Sports HD channels as per the WMO agreement, therefore BT have to pass that cost on..
