A surprising move!

That leaves Sky without a few HD channels now, such as ITVBe HD and 4Seven HD as well as Eden HD

Why would they have lost ITVBe HD? Aren't ITV and Sky buddies going by the exclusivity of ITV Encore?

It was removed this morning on the Sky EPG. EPG 532 has reverted to the SD version.

Apparently according to the Sky information thread on DS, UKTV have recently been testing EPG data for GOLD on the Eden HD stream on Sky.

Sky are missing quite a few HD channels, like Discovery Science HD

It hasn't been lost, it was never on the Sky platform.

Very surprising for me. Zero warning from my end.

I must say that actually, I don't care and have never watched or even heard of any of the channels mentioned. However, as a consumer and Sky HD+ subscriber, I'm actually furious that something is available in the UK market in HD but not to me as a premium Sky subscriber.

Possibly Sky will hear this. I doubt it but, let's try: The Sky World HD premium subscription is taken on the assumption that nothing in the UK market will ever surpass it.

If this is not the case then Netflix, Amazon and Tacolneston off-air will do. Sorry Rupe..... Oh, and you know that BT Sport does better rugby coverage then Sky?
