    Just something I stumbled across and thought it might be useful??? All I do is watch the channels.

    Thanks to Goldberg

    Thompson boxes "ARE" effected... HD Channels will be gone. Anyone with a Thompson box is getting a free HD replacement from Sky.

    SD is another story. Hopefully wont be done but who knows.

    From what I've read elsewhere a similar thing happened to $ly italia recently whereby the HD ones were switched off and the SD remained on and are still on to this day...

    Would be good to get it confirmed though.

    Thompson boxes will not take the update. So only if u swap your box, then u will loose HD. Of course they can always just turn u off if u refuse.

    To think I had one of those Thompson Boxes all them years ago. Even paid around £400 for the privilege from $ky and campaigned for a long time to swap it out due to other issues..
    Offloaded it in the end..

    Can confirm I have had sky italia since it all hit the roof and only lost HD channels.

    All other channels still fine.

    To be honest m8, ive had mine for years, its more than paid for itself. It will suffice for a freeview box which can record, once all channels r lost.

    NZBdrone messed up Vice Season 02 for me. Anyone else?

    Might just be a mess of the renaming, which it easily corrected when asked. But just about to watch, so I'll know if it's more soon.
