Santa was very kind to us last Christmas and brought us a brand new 40" Samsung High Definition LCD television. I quickly decided (in about two seconds) that I would add Sky HD to our satellite subscription. This involves getting a new Sky HD box which was installed yesterday. We also moved our old Sky boxes around so that our old SKY+ box replaces an ordinary Sky box in the playroom, which in turn was moved to the kitchen as a free-to-air box. Shane from Sierra Communications did an excellent job of all the installation work.
The first big event to watch was the Munster vs Northampton Heineken Cup match - brilliant clarity and definitely worth getting for sport. HD excels particularly for slow-motion replays. All detail is crystal clear - I'm looking forward to seeing more football and golf in HD. Munster won a slightly disappointing game 12-9 - see match report Munster show guile and guts.
