I currently have my sky hdi i have had it for a year now and have to say despite what they say about it being razor sharp i do notice that there is very little difference in picture clarity compared to freeview.

I switched between the two the other day and noticed very little difference between freeview and my sky as i have both.
Im running a panasonic tv at 1080p upscale with all hd leads but have to say both freeview and mysky hdi are very hard to compare.

Possibly because that's not the pont of difference is between MySki HDI and Freeview.

The point of difference is the content. Which is free for the latter and hits you in the wallet for the former...

Freeview sd still very sharp.
I realise the contrast is richer and clearer on mysky hdi but still very hard to tell even with freeview SD.
Im not complaining i just thought id raise this topic to see if others notice much difference as well.

It depends, are you paying for the HD access ticket? An extra $10/month, and you only get HD sports, movies, and 1, 2, and 3. Kinda pointless I have to say, considering you can have 1, 2 and 3 in HD for free, and I don't get sports or movies.

Depends on the content.

You shouldn't see a difference at all if the have the same content (ie TV3).
You also gotta remember that not all content is HD in the first place.
