A change like this is usually either active when awakening or by about 11:00.

Blitz in HD is fantastic! I managed to record SkySports News HQ fromantic the test channel. What an amazing treat! SD is dying slowly but surely...This was long overdue!

I have to agree - this has made a MAJOR difference! the picture quality - especially on the small text - was horrible in the past!

Our customers on Select who also have access to SuperSport Blitz will notice it is in HD for them too.

BlitzHD is now available to all packages even the EasyView package, on an appropriate HD decoder. And yes, even on an analogue TV fed with RCA, the quality improvement is noticeable. ( Not much, but enough to notice the difference).

I will check on the HD ready TV in a few moments.

Been glued to the recordings on this channel. Sky Sports News HQ in High Definition feels like a whole new channel on its own. Highlights in HD are also useful. I believe the ratings on this channel will fly. Great week SuperSport with two stunning additions!

Thank you!
