Well, not in October it doesn't. Sky's just dropped the price of its HD box to £75 for the whole of next month, thanks to the release of seven new hi–def channels. Six movies channels will get the HD treatment as well as Sky Real Lives.
But the real story here is the price – the £75 cost is awesome, even if the rather nasty £30 set up charge for new customers, and £60 for existing punters is a bit of a kick in the teeth.
Mind you, that gets you access to 26 HD channels, far more than you currently get for free. Hopefully Sky HD will drop the price even further soon – how about making it free?
Price: £75 for box in October
