How do I access Sky sports SD?

Problem sorter

I only see HD channels, but want to record SD.  How can I do this?

You've hit on another of the differences between V6 & TV360.

TV360 employs an HD-swap, whereby it only offers the HD version of a channel where available. If you subscribe to Sky Sports HD, then those channels are available in EPG 501-510 (plus 520 for tennis).

If you don't, then those same EPG positions carry the SD versions.

Note that the switch from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 a few years ago means, amongst other things, that recordings take up less space than before.

If you are subscribed to Sky Sports HD you will not be able to see Sky Sports SD channels with the 360 all SD channels get replaced by the HD versions if included in your package.

Edited to say maybe it's because I am in Greece but when I looked it said it said you hadn't had any replies.


I can't watch Sky Sports HD when it is pixelated



If it's pixelated then report a fault.

I did. But why can’t I access Sky Sports SD in the same way I did previously when there was a fault with HD?

And my post on the issue was removed.



Hi there @arrgee1991 

Thank you for your post and welcome back to the forums, it's great to have you here. 

I am so sorry that you have faced an issue with your service and thank you so much again for posting. We were aware of some issues last week effecting the Sports channels, can I ask how things are looking for you since your post? Is the HD channel still showing pixelation?
