I'd e-mailed that I was considering the unthinkable and switching to $ky purely because I was very frustrated about the lack of HD, and especially that there was no news about SkySports HD or Movies HD. The rep who rang told me that there was being a major upgrade of HD channels in the "next few months" and when challenged confirmed that Skysports and Sky Movies in HD would be available in my area (Sheffield) in the next few months as some testing work had been done. Now I've either misunderstood, which I doubt cos i pretty much triple checked what he was saying, but if this is the case, it's a great breakthrough, but why aren't VM shouting from the rooftops to stop the mass migration to $ky??? I've asked the rep to e-mail confirmation which he promised he would, but nothing as yet, When (if) it comes in I'll let you know.(Thanks Matt.) So will VM have Sky HD channels available nationally in time for the quarterly results announcement at the end of the month? I've heard so many reports of similar statements by engineers/customer services/friends of friends that I'm starting to get a little hopeful that something is about to happen. I'm not holding my breath (we've all heard it before) but the eternal optimist in me is a wee bit excited.
If I get anything concrete, I'll post it immediately.
