    Just ordered a brand new SKY HD box from www.pennineplus.com
    Authorised SKY dealer.
    £200 delivered.
    If you have SKY+ already,the box just switches over,so no need for a £60 install.
    Same wiring etc.
    Then it's just a case of calling SKY and getting them to upgrade your card down the line.
    Piece of proverbial.
    I'm afraid there's no way of avoiding the £10 a month for HD subscription,but at least you've saved £99 on the box itself.

    The box price was always the stumbling block for me,not the sub.

    Rubbish.

    Activating couldn't have been simpler.
    I just called SKY,told them I had a new box and wanted to subscribe to HD.
    They just paired the card with the box and upgraded the package.
    Took about 5 minutes.

    Show me where Comet are doing them for £149 as a straight purchase,not as part of some other deal,like buying a TV first.
    Just a straight "I'd like an HD box please" purchase.
    I don't think so.

    Maybe not easy to buy but comet get a bonus for sign ups and at the momment they are not doing so well, so yes if you ask as long as you buy something you will get it for £149 plus maybe a pack of batteries...

    as for getting sky to do that well done! i tried for two days..
