Film4 HD will appear on Sky...

...in September! Amazing it has taken so long, especially as it was announced in September 2012.
I think Film4 HD and TCM HD both look better than the Sky HD movie channels - does anyone else agree? Sky Premier is okay but the others aren't crystal sharp, and some seem to have lip sync issues - I was watching Chicago and True Grit recently and both were annoyingly out of sync.
(btw, Cable Forum has been offline for a few hours Friday lunchtime.)

Agreed, I wasn't too impressed by sky movies when I had it over Xmas, film 4 had was definitely crisper.

I also agree, I think film4, 4HD, E4 HD are all superior in quality compared to Sky movies channels. Not sure why but no doubt one of the more technically gifted visitors to this site will know...

It's because $KY want you to dump Virgin and they think the way to do it is by treating non-Sky users as second class citizens by offering their own services on Virgin for more or less the same price but worse i.e. less HD versions and crap quality vision.

Sky can p*iss right off with that attitude!

@gmcausland - That's the technical answer I was after! ;-)
