Essentially, HD works by using more than four times as many pixels to create a picture compared to normal TV. This gives incredible clarity to images, with edges and lines looking more distinct. HD also uses millions more colours than normal TV, increasing the richness and intensity of everything you watch. And because many HD programmes are made with cinema-style surround sound, you can experience this in full with a compatible surround sound system.
To watch HD programmes you need:
- HD Ready TV
- Non Recording HD Box Or Recording HD Plus Box
- Subscription to UK TV with Extra charge for HD £10.25 per month
The Non Recording HD box costs €150 Euro Or Recording HD Plus Box costs €250 Euro (Dish and Installation not included) and will need to be connected to a dish pointing at 28 East (Twin LNB with two cables for Recording HD Plus Box). If you live in the Geneva or bordering French region you can call in to "Jim's British Minimarket" to buy the dish and LNB.
