Re: Number of HD channels on BT TV

Dave is not on BT its on Freeview and there is not much space left on Freeview for many more HD channels but that could change in years to come.

Hopefully before the end of this year BT may add some new channels but there are no signs of that happening so far.

Also the chances of the likes of Sky One and that coming to BT are next to nothing if you are also long for that.

Again all the other channels you say are also on Freeview and not BT.

BT Youview can also pick up the channels that are on Freeview.

If you ever stoped your BT TV you can still use the Youview box to pick up the free channels on Freeview including the Freeview HD channels.

Not paid for, doesn't Sky charge extra for having HD channels!!!!! BT may add the HD variants for the existing Extra channels at some stage if they find the SD versions are watched enough.

I just checked and the HD channels are only part of the most expensive plan for Sky. So, I don't understand how they are not paid for channels.

Sky may give you far more channels and loads more in HD but Sky is far more expencive for there TV than BT is.

I to would like to see some more channels added to the BT TV entertanment package and also some more in HD but I also dont want BT to end up being as dear as Sky for there TV service.
