Sky HD on track for May launch

Sky has moved closer to the launch of its high definition television service with the announcement of pricing details and confirmation that the first installations of Sky HD are scheduled to begin in May 2006.
Customers will pay £299 for the Sky HD box and a Sky HD subscription of £10 a month in addition to their Sky digital subscription. As an introductory offer, standard installation of Sky HD is free for all new or existing Sky digital subscribers taking a Sky HD subscription.
Brian Sullivan, Sky's Director of Product Strategy and Management, said: "Sky is just weeks away from an exciting new era that will transform the television viewing experience. Sky HD customers will be able to enjoy stunning picture and sound quality from the widest range of HD channels in the UK and Ireland. We're delighted that the BBC has said that its HD coverage of the World Cup will be available to all customers with a Sky HD box as a non-subscription channel."
Consumers who registered their interest in Sky HD prior to March 23 now have the chance to pre-order online. Sales will open to the general public in April.
