Some sports, some movies and the TV2 and TV3 content.

Pretty shit really. Would think Discovery and the likes would be HD.

Not really,
like a few channels.

it bugs me though, buy a HD tv, and then pay extra ontop of standard (and already fucking expensive) sky, you have to pay for HD Sky.

Yet again we fall behind the world.

It's a f'king joke that you have to pay an HD tax.

My new TV has freeview built-in. I wasn't that fussed about it until I started watching TV3 in 1080 and 5.1 sound.

Ok, sky can continue to not be supported by me.

I really only wanted the food channel and movies but I've already got freeview hd so don't really want to downgrade.

We don't really watch much TV, although the three HD TV's in our house would lead you to believe otherwise.

However, when we do watch TV, it's nice to have it in HD - Freeview is great, so i see no requirement for Sky (which seems incredibly overpriced for what it is).
