Its the second decade of the 21st century, and HD quality TV is the norm now, as is quality surround sound. If being a tosspot is to want HD then there are a heck of a lot of tosspots in the UK - otherwise why do we now yearn for HD?. I dont think Premiersports is good value without this feature


Well I have upgraded to HD only this week and o be honest I and the wife are wondering what the fuss is all about? We have a panasonic viera model, nothing special, and we have seen others with HD previously and also then wondered what the clamour was all about as the improvement on our screen is certainly not that amazing that we are at all excited over it.

I only upgraded in order to have the better recording facility that comes with the skybox, HD held no great call for us at all and if we could have got the box without it we certainly would have done so.

it should also be made sure it's set on 1080i rather than 720. Sometimes people miss this.

Shouldn't that be 1080p?

I do agree with Lobby that HD is important. Night matches played under floodlights can be particularly poor in SD.

That said, if you enjoy NRL then this is a fantastic deal and even in SD I don't think you can complain for a tenner a month!

I don't have hd and frankly couldn't give a monkeys about it.

I'm just pleased to be able to see most matches from the best rugby competition in the world every week

it's a ###### excuse to charge more, better tvs give better pictures sky have been very clever selling hd boxes when they were never needed.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

I didn't get one for quite a while as I assumed they were just a con, but they are actually a lot better than regular broadcasts. Definitely.
Why do you think a lot of actors aren't happy about the warts n all effect?

Plus I got it for free anyway.

Is NRL fulltime returning to sky this season or has premier sports got all NRL shows?

I've watched it a fair bit - and been in pubs that have a HD transmission next to a SD transmission. The only time I've seen a real difference is when the SD transmission has been on a cheap HD TV.
