The sharpest picture ever seen
Sky launched their Sky+ HD (High Definition) service in May of 2006 and now are approaching half a million subscribers. Customers are able to enjoy a sharper picture quality, which is four times better than that that is received by people without high-definition televisions
It is not just the picture quality which is a vast improvement, but also the deepness of the colours that are used. Vivid reds, green and blues light up sporting events, films and documentaries in equal measure. This is all augmented with Dolby Digital surround sound.
All of the features of Sky+ relate to Sky+ HD, so myriad channels are available and you have the ability to digitally record programs and pause and rewind live television.
Some HD Channels include: BBC HD, Sky One, National Geographic, Sky Sports and Sky Movies
What you need to enjoy High Definition Television
High Definition Compatibility
There are certain prerequisites that you have to consider before you invest in the Sky+ HD system. Firstly, and by far the most important of which is whether or not your television can receive the high quality signal which is emitted.
High Definition compatible televisions have been available in the United Kingdom for many years now, but there is no guarantee that yours is one. You will be easily able to discover whether or not yours is equipped by looking at its original packaging (where it should carry a logo), or by asking a qualified member of staff at a local electronics store.
