I doubt it's the strong selling point it was, or that Sky would hope for. Most viewers will already be signed up to Sky or NowTV to get previous seasons. Anyone watching previous series from other...

Yeah, "hidden" in the XL TV pack cost with things like BT Sports, etc... Don't talk nonsense - a charge is a charge. Sky should NOT be charging for HD. Plenty of companies around the globe provide...

Not really - just the way it's worded. None of the real good stuff would work with existing boxes. Read the official VM press release - never mind third party consumer sites versions!

I envy the staff that will get these first!

Along with all the new features, this truly is going to be a ground-breaking box and a new era in TV!

Bring it on!

I don't think there's any doubt that a new TiVo box and software will knock the socks of current boxes. Furthermore, there will be a charge probably in line with Sky's recent new box.
