    Slightly off topic, but did BT sport HD change their channel numbers on Sky? I am fairly sure it used to be in the 400s, but HD is now in the 800s on my box.

    Was just about to order BT for the match tomorrow.

    You automatically sign up for a new 12 month contract if you order it for a tenner a month.

    Be ringing them tomorrow to tell them I want to cancel. See what they offer. Not even going to mention the sports.

    Just a FYI that the virgin media offer (Sky Sports but not BT or Premier) can include HD. If you go via this link (https://www.virginmedia.ie/boardsoffer) you will get 50€ DID electrical voucher back. They will call bacl once you submit the form just make sure to mention the Sky Sports is to be in HD. Covers the majority of the live footy, (most PL and all CL) and well you will have fast internet to look for the rest of the games

    I got them coming in on SD on channels 413 etc and nothing came through in HD on the channels 800s

    Rang them and they were just waiting for updates on their system to suit all boxes, such as sky q and sky + hd etc

    Took a couple if days but BT and premier HDs now coming through on the 400s channels

    Mine returned back into its normal position of HD in the 400s on the 3rd or 4th August, once we paid the increase in the new system.

    Got €15 quid off a month for a year. So can add BT and still pay less than what I was paying which is all I wanted.

    It’s always worth the call.I got €25 off per month for the year & then added the BT channels for €10 per month for the year so I’ll save €180 over the year & have the extra channels.

    Was thinking of switching to Virgin. Im paying sky €131 a month for sports, multi room and broadband. With Virgins offer ill get same for €76 (just losing some sky channels like sky atlantic). So a saving of €55 a month. I wonder what they'll offer me to stay. If it came down to under a hundred id stay.

    No BT or Premier sports available on it is the only downside. Effectively no early or 3pm Saturday games the ones your most likely not to go the pub for!!

    Loads of good providers and loads of cowboys, the key is finding a reliable one. They guy I use is £45 for 12 months, some are cheaper some are more expensive.
    My recommendation would be to get a mag box, pricey but a great piece of kit.
