Box Office not HD

So to book an event on box office through virgin media its exactly the same price as skys platform yet we can only watch in SD surely the price should be reduced or virgin should provide HD content. Why is it that theres no Hd?

Prices are set by Sky, as is what we are provided with. Sky always give preferential treatment to their own platform customers, have done for years, & probably always will.

It's put me off buying events, as im susure it has other people. its a shame virgin media don't have a say in it and find it unbelievable that sky can charge the same price for low quality broadcasts as they can for Hd.

Re: Box Office not HD

The only Box Office event I have ever been interested in was the Froch Wembley fight last year.
I don't agree with being charged the same full price for a clearly inferior SD picture so I luckily went around to a friends house and bought the HD on Sky.

I'm not sure what Virgin can do about it but there must be others in the same boat as me who would pay if HD but otherwise not willing to.

Feel absolutely cheated I wasn't told box office was only in sd on virginmedia, do they not think we should at least be given the option

Yep. Buy a dish & become a Sky customer. Sky are an old hand at witholding content from their rivals to try & poach customers.
