Sky HD adding Three New HD Channels

Great news for myself and the other 400,000 Sky HD subscribers in the UK, with Sky adding three new HD channels to it’s line up, brining the number of total HD channels to 17, and access to 6,500 hours of HD programming.

In March we should expect to see Sky Sports 3 HD, FX HD and Sky Movies Premiere HD. Sky Sports HD 3 will bring a total of three Sports channels, and will start off with Monday Night Raw and PGA Euro Tour in March.

FX HD will be a “bespoke” custom channel, and we hope it will be similar to Sky One etc. Sky Movie Premiere HD will be a straight simulcast of the already existing SD channel. Personally I am very much looking forward to an extra movie channel, there isn’t anything much better than watching a great movie in supreme HD quality with no adverts.

Lookout for my upcoming Sky HD review!
