Current Platinum is 105.95.
HD Platinium (includes HD iQ2) 130.90
So the HD section is worth $25
My Sport and another package is 55.90
My Sport and another package + HD Complete + iQ2 is 80.85
So the HD portion of that is $25
What's the incentive to go onto Platinum you get no discount and at the end of the year no free HD Box Office.
Calm down Hosko! We're all as pissed off as you - so much for the people saying this would be affordable...
Did anyone notice on the HD pricing page that in order to get the Full HD package for $14.95 (ie all 4/5 channels) you need to have My Sport and either My Escape., My World or My Playtime. So if you just had Get Started it would seem you'd need to pay $19.90 for the 4 HD channels - actually rereading it it seems you cant get BBC HD or Documentaries HD unless you have My Escape, My World and My Playtime..
This is NOT A GOOD DEAL at all...
And is any of the sport in HD even LIVE? Will all 4 FOX SPORTS AFL games per week be in HD, or only the replay of the two Channel 10 games? Will they replay the Channel 10 games in HD as well? What about when AFL and NRL is on at the same time? Which sport gets precedent on the HD channel?
They are quick with their pricing, but slow with their details. How about a TV guide listing (and removal of the installation charge)?
