I have a different idea :)

Is it? For some reason I thought that Five HD was part of the entertainment pack.

I don't think Sky need to do anything. Most Sky customers seem to only use their Sky box like a VCR - recording stuff only when they are out or have other commitments. It's a minority of us who use...
