Sky explains reasons for no HD on Sky Player


by David Allen

The management of Sky have been promising HD streaming through the Sky Player, yet so far there are no high definition programmes available on the broadband streaming service, which recently announced that it would be available for non satellite subscribers.

The lack of any HD programmes through the Sky Player has had some industry experts puzzled, especially when there are so many high speed broadband connections available through the UK.

However, the decision not to offer HD programming is down to quality of service.

The fact is they cannot guarantee that all viewers will be able to receive a quality service and until that can be guaranteed the Sky Player will remain strictly SD, with HD following along in a year or so.

Subscribers to the Sky Player service are charged £7 per month, but do not at the moment receive the full quota of channels available for set top box subscribers.
