360 bos Sky Sports

Learning to use new box & noticed only Sky Sports HD available. I have subscribed to HD  the issue I have is sometimes in the past the HD have stopped working so used to change to normal channel to carry on watching. There is no non HD channels eg 512 etc to change to if this problem occurs again

Re: 360 bos Sky Sports

I have Sky Sports but without the HD addon and I have been able to watch the channels on the 360 box. They are listed from channel 501-508 in the guide for me. But I don't see the HD versions of those channels. This makes me think that there is only one set of sky sports channels available to see in the guide and it will show you HD or SD depending on your TV package.

Re: 360 bos Sky Sports

There are 2 sets of Sky Sports channels in the EPG.

501-510 are the HD variants

511-520 are the SD variants.

Anyone who subscribes to the HD pack will have access to all of these.

Not so with the 360.

If you have an HD sub to Sky Sports then the HD versions are on 501 to 510 and the SD variants are removed.  If you don’t have an HD sub then the SD versions are there.

i.e. there are no channels numbered 511 to 520 in the EPG of the 360.

This holds for all other channels on the 360 where an HD version is available in the pack you’ve subscribed to.  The HD version replaces the SD version and the SD version is removed.
