Title: SkyCable HD
Post by: DViant on May 23, 2008 at 08:49 PM
According to this (http://www.philmug.ph/forum/showthread.php?p=389682#post389682) Sky Cable will be rolling out HD services next month. Right now Magallanes is said to be the test bed for the service. Can anyone verify this claim?

I'm sure they'll charge for it after all why not make money off the people who can afford expensive HDTVs?

AFAIK maski 1 company lang magpasok ng HD sa pinas madidistribute na maski saan. parang Dream kasi yan na may satellite bawat bahay. medyo mahal lang lang kasi kelangan ng sat box for each tv. i have an uncle in the states, $200+ a month daw bayad nya for 4 sat boxes

Some of the HDTV shows na nagpalaglag ng baba ko (pinulot ko na ulit)  ;D

Carrier
UFC 84
Lamborghini Factory
Megafactories - Tanks
Mythbusters
The Masters
House Season 4
CSI (NY, Vegas, Miami)
Prison Break Season
Heroes Season
Sarah Connor Chronicles
Gossip Girl
Discovery Channel 100 Greatest Discoveries

Hopefully, magkaroon na nga ng HD service sa Philippines soonest.    Instead of catalogue high def movies, mas sulit ang high def TV kung meron kang HDTV kahit 720p lang - and the variety of contents is simply much wider.
Title: Re: Sky Cable HD?
Post by: Marl☆1 on Jun 08, 2008 at 05:42 PM
So is there anybody who can confirm if this is indeed happening soon for Sky?  I tried googling this exhaustively and didn't get any hits.  Must be a soft rumor.

Anyway if you're really hot on HD broadcast, then why not try Dream?  Per TV nga lang ang bayad, but then again... if you can afford a high investment panel TV...  ;D

My colleagues is staying in Magallanes area & Sky Cable service staff already went to her home. She's not really familiar with what happened but based on her description, it seems Sky Cable has installed a "Digital Set-top Box" (No HD). She can view "Info Text" on the chanels i.e. info on the programes, time/duration, etc. The drawback now is she can't use a spliter anymore for her extra TV... ;D

I doubt HD service will be provided so soon by our cable providers but if it materializes that will be indeed good news. :)

Maybe it's just digital programming sir Pchin but not yet hd.  ;D I think digital programming itself is twice clearer than regular cable programs which is not  bad.

I agree.  ;D

I'm still pessimistic about this. I think our cable companies still don't have the technology to provide their subscrubers with HD programming. The question is what local channels or Asian channels are showing their programs in HD? None at this moment, right? If there is may be just a few of them. In USA, Directv in particular, they only charge their customers $9.99 extra every month for hd programming fee. So I hope that Skycable wouldn't rip their customers' pockets if they're gonna provide this service here in the Philippines.

I wouldn't mind paying a premium for HD programing. If you can afford to buy a 150,000 pesos 52-inch Samsung LA52A650 then by all means you can pay more for HD cable.

very interesting ... if indeed sky is going HD by year end, then we can (or should) expect some ads regarding this in a few months ....
let's just hope that the added premium will not relate to staggering subscription fees though...  :o

Skycable installed my dighboxes in May. As per their advisory, our area (Pasay) was supposed to go digital by the end of May, and we would require the digibox to receive the signal. And yes, the pq improved. The digiboxes come free for existing subscribers, one box for every declared TV set.

Post by: aeris30 on Sep 12, 2008 at 12:21 PM
I read an article in today's (Sept. 12) Phil. Star on page A33 that SkyCable is offering a pay-per-view high-definition broadcast of the 2008 Ryder Cup from Sept. 19-22 for those with HDTVs. An HD decoder (different from their digibox) will be provided for subscribers. Subscription is P2000 (includes subscription cost, installation & HD decoder box).
Title: Re: Sky Cable HD?
Post by: dyerds on Sep 12, 2008 at 01:05 PM
2k for four days!?!  ::)  ::)  ::) If many customers bite this over-priced subscription then they will have no reason not to over price their hd programming subscription in the future. All they need to do is just provide their customer with hd receiver and they will get hd programming anytime they want. It's not like you have to pay every time you want watch tv in hd.   >:(

Sky Cable Philippines delivers nation's first HD broadcast with Ryder Cup

by Darren Murph, posted Sep 16th 2008 at 7:04AM
Initially, we wondered why Sky Cable Philippines would choose the Ryder Cup as the nation's first HD broadcast, but then we remembered that there's really no better way to show off the benefits of high-def than to showcase a sporting event. Reportedly the cable carrier will be delivering the four day event (September 19th through 22nd) in magnificent high-definition to those who take the plunge on an HD set-top-box. Too bad that box costs a stiff $42, but hopefully this is just the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

We subscribed to the HD broadcast of the Ryder Cup this weekend. We paid P2000 for the HD digital box receiver made by Coship & Ryder Cup HD Broadcast. The unit can output 480p, 576p, 720p, & 1080i resolutions & it even upscales regular tv broadcast to said resolutions. Video output thru HDMI, component & regular analog output. Audio output thru optical or regular analog outs. The unit downsamples AC3 to regular 2 channel PCM.

There are 2 channels alloted for HD broadcast. One for the Ryder Cup & the other is showing Luxe TV HD for the past few days & today National Geographic HD is on test broadcast.

Since Skycable is already distributing digital cable channels and has the extra bandwidth to carry HD, it is  just a matter of deploying the HD capable digital boxes in order to distribute HD signals. Soon, there will be more HD programming from the satellites servicing this region hence there will be more choices.

On a related note, local broadcasters I'm sure is already taping their local shows (teleseryes) on HD in anticipation of this improved quality of transmission. In fact, some of ABS CBN programs are being mastered on HD  so that it will be marketable overseas. They have to convert it first to standard definition before broadcast over the air but the masters are in HD. I will not be surprised if Sky will come up with an HD-teleserye channel in the future.

we have the digibox installed, but we never really subscribed for it, more like it was forced upon us lol....without it we would only be getting local channels..bummer

while there is definitely a significant improvement in PQ, not all channels improved evenly, some with only minor improvement. still that's better than nothing....

i just read this thread for the first time, and got a bit excited about the possibility of HD programming locally...can't wait to watch crystal clear TV shows.

i was in the US a year ago around jan, and if there's anything that i can't forget about the entire trip was the reception of the cable TV that was being broadcast....i don't think my relatives are even savvy enough to be ordering any kind of HDTV programming (i never really asked, maybe later when they get on skype i'll ask) but every single channel was astounding....of course i was only watching on a regular ray-tube TV, but still, i have never seen cable television that clear, every channel seemed like it was being fed from a DVD player...it's scary to think what real HDTV might look like :P

I expect SkyCable's HD will be low bit rate 720p streams.

720 is already better than what ordianry dvd can give, which is more or less what standard HD progrmamming in the US offers (at least i think so....not sure if i read that somewhere on the net too), i for one would be happy at DVD quality programming.

it's like apple's itunes store selling HD stuff but in reality it's not fullHD stuff, not yet anyway....(well that's how it was last time i checked, if things have changed in apples itunes store then maybe i'll start considering ordering shows, maybe even an apple tv soon)
Title: Re: SkyCable HD

Good to hear these positive feedback. So SkyCable HD progamming could materialize sooner than we thought. I'm already happy with 720p...  :D

SKYCABLE LAUNCHES HIGH DEFINITION TV SERVICE
By Mary Ann Ll. Reyes Updated April 29, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Leading cable television service provider SkyCable has brought television viewing to a higher level with the introduction of high definition TV (HDTV), the new standard in TV technology fast sweeping across the United States, Europe and Asia.

The new service is now available to its subscribers in Metro Manila in areas that are digital-ready. SkyCable officials revealed that about 90 percent of the metropolis is digital-ready. The company has around 100,000 subscribers in Metro Manila, of which around 40 percent are already using the digital platform.

SkyCable invested about P6 million for the two HD channels as well as for the installation of the transmission equipment and additional integrated receiver decoder.

SkyCable marketing head Ray Montinola revealed that the company is also set to launch another new service within the year – video on demand (VOD). Also in the works are two other new services which may be made available next year – picture on picture and personal video recorder (PVR) which will require additional set-top boxes. The PVR is similar to TiVO (tv on demand) which has a very large following in the US.

HDtv ushers the era of superior resolution and digital sound. HD programs seen on HD-compatible TV sets enable viewers to enjoy rich and vivid images completed by clear sound. This revolutionary technology gives the viewers the feeling of being ‘in’ the program because of its superior clarity, with pictures two to five times sharper than ordinary tv resolution and seen on a 16:9 wide-screen format or the same format used in movie theaters.

SkyCable’s HDtv subscription requires the use of an HD decoder box that will decrypt SkyCable’s HD pay-per view signal. Subscribers will then get access to HD programs that feature images and sound of superior quality. But aside from decoding the signal of SkyCable HD content, the HD box also provides a seven-day on-screen program guide to help subscribers keep track of program schedules as well as the convenience of the ‘favorite channels’ function.

Company officials emphasized that SkyCable’s move to bring HDtv to the Philippine market is in line with the firm’s commitment to bring innovation in the cable industry. Local subscribers first got to experience HDtv when SkyCable presented the Ryder Cup gold tournament in high definition during the last part of 2008.

SkyCable will offer two new channels, History HD and Discovery HD, with high definition content, as part of the P499 monthly service fee per television, which will be on top of the MSF being paid per tv by subscribers currently on digital platform. Meanwhile, the HD decoder box is included in the one-time P5,000 installation fee.

Officials revealed that those that are on digital platform and have a digital set-top box (digibox) will only have to pay a P3,000 installation fee, representing the difference between the P5,000 HD installation fee and the P2,000 already paid for the digibox. Those that are on the analog platform will have to check whether their areas are digital-ready and go directly to an HD subscription. The digibox cannot decode the HD signal and will have to be replaced by the HD box.

It was also learned that SkyCable is working on bringing another HD channel in soon, but any channel in addition to History and Discovery HD will be charged separately.

Right now, HD content is foreign produced. Companies like ABS-CBN Broadcasting, GMA Network and ABC-5 are preparing for the shift from analog to digital transmission and are awaiting government rules on the shift to digital.

SKY CABLE GOES 'PICTURE PERFECT'
by Kristine Servando, abs-cbnNEWS.com/Newsbreak | 04/28/2009 8:17 PM


In the posh boardroom of the company's top cable provider sat a shiny new Sony Bravia high-definition television (HDTV), curiously enclosed within iron grills, and showing a herd of lions. A top SkyCable executive joked, "The grills are to prevent the lions from leaping out at us."

This is precisely the kind of "clear as real" experience that SkyCable aims to provide with the launch of two new high-definition programs on cable TV, reportedly a first in the entire country.

With the introduction of the SkyCable HD box and two new educational programs in HD, the company guarantees it will entice viewers who want a "life-changing" TV experience via enhanced picture and sound quality.

For now, the HD channels being offered are Discovery Channel (ch. 164) and the History Channel (ch. 165), both of which offer exclusive documentaries and features.

However, SkyCable Marketing Vice President Rodrigo Montinola revealed that negotiations are in the works for other HD offerings like sports, a follow-up to their prior HD coverage of the Ryder Cup in 2008.

"We're looking at one way to really appreciate HD via sports events so we're looking at a specific set (of sports events), which may follow a [pay-per-view] format. It will be something that our subscribers can appreciate," he said.

Malou Esparrago, SkyCable's head of Postpaid Marketing, said the HD package is meant for households with LCD, plasma, or projector TV sets, who have had to contend with slightly pixellated standard-definition programming because of a lack of HD content in the Philippines and Southeast Asia.

According to SkyCable's Research and Development Vice President Engr. Mike Martir, there are only so many HD programs available in Southeast Asia because they occupy too much bandwidth and are too expensive to be beamed via satellite.

He said each HD channel cost the company P3 Million, amounting to about P6 Million or more, including  equipment costs for an additional integrated receiver-decoder (IRD) and transmission equipment.

Subscribers also need to be "digital-ready" SkyCable subscribers, or must own TVs with digital connections, to avail of the service so they can make the easy transition to HD. Programs will be beamed via satellite in both 1080i or 1080p formats, along with mpeg2 audio, basically giving a subscriber a clearer picture and superior sound.

The SkyCable HD box, which can only work with LCD or plasma screen TVs, as well as projector TVs, can carry both standard definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) programs. Subscribers will pay a one-time installation fee of P5,000 for the HD box (which can also play music from a USB flash drive) and P499 a month for the two HD programs. Additional TVs in the household each require a separate HD box, but HD programs for succeeding TVs will only cost P152 a month.

Households which have already purchased the SkyCable DigiBox, which offers digital content, will pay less if they swap their existing Digibox with an HD box.

Luxury product

The HD package, however, is far from becoming a mass-market product, a fact which SkyCable executives are fully aware.

Esparrago admits that the product, which is exclusive to SkyCable subscribers, is only geared towards a small market of affluent males who are likely to have disposable income.

"We realize it's not going to be a mass market kind of thing, it's really for the upscale market who want it and who can pay for it. What we're doing for HD is that those who want to get that kind of technology, at least the content is already available," she said.

Currently, 90% of SkyCable's estimated 250,000 Metro Manila subscribers are already digital-ready, and about 100,000 already have DigiBoxes, but only a small percentage of this constitute the rich boy market who are willing to make the HD transition.

However, SkyCable executives and their partner companies Sony electronics company and appliance retailer Abenson, are reportedly not worried about the global economic crisis, when consumers tend to scrimp on spending for big-ticket items like plasma screen TVs.

Esparrago said they are confident in Abenson's and Sony's sales figures, which reportedly show that people are still buying expensive gadgets.

"For now, we are still having a lot of buyers of the LCD TVs, and I think for the Philippines, it's not affected by what they call the recession because most of our items, normally LCD TVs, are still being bought," said Jong dela Cruz, an Abenson Marketing officer.

The HD's luxury status, however, does not mean that the companies are not coming up with promos to capture the less affluent market.

Montinola said they will be launching SkyCable Select, which allows the subscriber to customize the amount and type of programs he or she watches on TV; "Video on Demand", which allows viewers to watch any program at any time; as well as partnerships with Abenson and Sony to make the HD experience more affordable through discounts.

Dream home theater

However, is the HDTv and plasma screen experience really the life-changing event that it's hyped up to be? Is it really worth the hole in your wallet? Definitely, said ABS-CBN Corporate Communications Manager Kane Choa, who recently purchased one such plasma screen TV.

"I pay a lot more. But it's nice, it's like having a mini-theater in your living room. Usually you can only experience HD quality when you watch DVDs, and you can really see the difference--the colors are sharper, it's much clearer than the regular SD," he said.

"I feel like I don't want to go back to SD because you'll really acquire the taste for HD, you'll learn to get used to it," he added.

Aside from this leap into HD, SkyCable also promises to make more innovations in the future, all geared towards giving the Philippine public amazing viewing experiences.

"We're also developing a box now that is supposed to provide picture on picture (where viewers can watch several shows in one TV screen). We are also developing a box with a personal video recorder, much like a TiVo. The new boxes are still in the testing stage, maybe within the year or next year, we can have these," Martir said.

Esparrago said, however, that a quick jump into a "super-box" that encompasses many features will be too costly, should it be introduced to the market right now.

"The more features, the more expensive it will be, something that the market cannot bear at this point. But we want SkyCable to be the first to bring it into the Philippine market so that the Philippines can be as advanced as other countries," she said.

Nevertheless, with SkyCable's initial steps into HD technology, and with more TV innovations lined up in the immediate future, who knows maybe we can expect lions and more to leap out of our TV screens someday.

SKYCABLE LAUNCHES HDTV CHANNELS

THE COUNTRY’S top cable TV operator yesterday launched two new channels with "high-definition" content, now available to Metro Manila subscribers.

SkyCable Corp. executives said History HD and Discovery HDchannels now offer images and sound of superior quality.

"Pictures are two to five times sharper than ordinary TV resolution available today and are seen in a 16:9 wide-screen format, the same format used in movie theaters," SkyCable corporate marketing head Arlene Torres said in a statement.

History HD features original non-fiction series and "event-driven" specials that cover various historical genres, science, archaeology, and pop culture.

Discovery HD features programs on the different wonders of the world in "superb imagery and expansive detail."

The HDtv subscription requires the use of an HD decoder box which will decode SkyCable’s HD Pay-Per-View signal.

i'm all for discovery and history channel going HD, but at 500php additional cost + the initial cost of 3-5k (installation) yikes, it's a bit too steep....especially when HD content readily available to most users educated enough to go HD in the first place...

it's a very promising thing though, and i can't deny the excitement that HD programming is actually just around the corner.. (weeeeee) :)

hopefully when the HD line-up expands it includes:

Biography channel (quickly becoming my fave channel)
BTV (i mean c'mon it's the NBA...or at least give us HD broadcast of the playoffs)
NGC

....that Tivo like box sounds very promising as well....can't wait to see the specs on that thing

Yes its good na HD is around the corner but skycable is not helping promote it in anyway by having 500php and all the charges for 2 channels. All that will come out is we tried HD it was not really succesful here in the Philippine....duh its because you greedy people pegged unreasonably high for people to watch
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: pchin on May 04, 2009 at 11:32 AM
SkyCable should offer an irresistable introduction promo e.g. the first 200 subsribers will only pay P1,000 installation fee (better still: installation fee is waived!!) & receive a 3-mth free rental, etc....you know, something that will make people jump into it....a sweet offer that we can't refuse... ;D

Hay...Very poor marketing indeed....  :P

I think SKYCable should be hailed instead, for taking a risk loosing financially just to take the Philippines into the HD era.  If its cheap to go HD then how come no one else if doing it?  I'm sure if this takes off the rate will go down pa.

I would like to see others following SKY's lead on this, sana nga lang eh risk takers rin ang ibang companies.  :)

mmm..never heard of that company, but will definitely be looking out for that.

as far as hailing skycable, i too think they are definitely a step ahead of anyone as far as cable broadcasting, but i fear they aren't motivated by being pioneers here.  take the digibox for example, that imo was driven for a need to stop people from "stealing" from them via illegal connections.  the result for end users though is a somewhat clearer picture, although it kinda makes the tuner that comes with the TV useless :(

i'm still hopefull that they see more income in lowering their prices so that more people can actually enjoy HD programming.  after all most of the money spenders out there belong to a bracket that probably don't see the value in paying that much for 2 channels.

....hopefully the redo their market study and see that even the manufacturers of these high-end systems have made their products very reachable.  the best example i can think of is my own pv80, 2-3yrs ago nobody would believe that the prices of plasma TVs at 42" would have ever been so low, granted it is panasonic's so-called entry-level plasma. :)

Given they're the first with the service in the country and a certain demographic can afford HDTVs and HD players P499 isn't that bad.

P499/month translates to around P8/day a channel.

A cup of rice costs more than P8.

You can set the HD Box to output either at 480/720p/1080i, at default it's at 1080i.. gumanda ng konti non-hd channels ko, since i upgraded directly from a non digibox connection to the HD digital box.. (sabi ng installer ganun din daw pag nag upgrade to digibox).. MPEG2 H.264 yung mga HD channels, MPEG2 MPEG2 for the non-hd ones..

I checked out the channel line up of Cignal and its main competition is Dream. By including additional HD channels on top of the SD offerings, this would surely lure Dream subs which lately are complaining of bad service.

Sky's HD offering on the other hand was priced to approximate that of Cignal's offer. Potential subs for Cignal or switchers from Sky must check out first the channel offerings of the two services before making their decision. The way I look at it, Sky would still have the upper hand considering the number of SD channels that they offer. On the other hand Cignal's target would be new subdivision that do not have sky cable facilities laid out in their poles, significantly eating up into Dream's market share.

kaya lang if your using splitters at home the signal is weaker so they need to layout a new cable line from outside your house direct to the tv that you want the HD BOX installed.
all for free atleast for 15 days. ;D

It's just too pricey. It's a good thing I was on SKycable platinum, kaya 3k na lang daw kasi nag deposit na ako ng 2k dati for the platinum.

if you are a sky silver plan customer like me the additional 499/month for 2 HD channels is ok since nasama naman yun ibang sky platinum premiums like basketball tv (ch.149) sa subcription ng HD BOX so its like upgrading to sky platinum plan, also the installer told me that sky will add 1 more HD channel (ch.166 reserved HD) included in your 499/month subscription.

-is it possible to split the signal to all of our other television sets without subscribing for an exta digibox like what we currently do?
-if yes, will it enjoy the same channells?

Steph, the answer is no you can't

That's one of the reason why SKYCable went digital to prevent pilferage, kaya nga may digibox eh para encrypted yung signal, without the digibox di ka makakanood sa ibang sets.  Pwede kung after the digibox ka mag splitter pero yung channels pare-pareho all the time, kung ano yung channel na nakatune in yung digibox.

@Mr Big Boy

skycable is offering a 15-day trial for qualified skycable customers for the 2 HD channels it includes the installation & use of the COSHIP HD BOX... we had our installed this morning.
kaya lang if your using splitters at home the signal is weaker so they need to layout a new cable line from outside your house direct to the tv that you want the HD BOX installed.
all for free atleast for 15 days. ;D

DISCOVERY HD is fantastic... lalo na yun HD EXPERIENCE PROGRAM nila.
HISTORY HD is a little bit boring so far except for the DA VINCI STORY. wanep :P

Sir, para ba itong free trial din ng skybroadband nila? unfortunately my place (Juan luna, Tondo) is not yet prime for skyinternet but are already HD capable area. Will call to see if i can avail of their free HD trial.
Title: UAAP in HD

UAAP season 72 opens in historic style--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

abs-cbnNEWS.com | 07/09/2009 12:20 PM



       
MANILA – Collegiate athletes and their supporters are in for a historic opening of the 72nd season of the University Athletics Association of the Philippines (UAAP) on Saturday.

Host Far Eastern University (FEU) is set to thrill audiences with the 1 p.m. opening ceremony program at the Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City. This will be followed by games featuring the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers vs. Adamson University Falcons at 2 p.m., and De La Salle Green Archers vs. University of the East Red Warriors at 4 p.m.

As for those who will not be able to watch the UAAP season 72 opening live, they are still in for a one-of-a-kind viewing experience. 

ABS-CBN Sports vice-president Peter Musngi said Saturday’s UAAP telecast is the “first program on high definition (HD),” making it a “historic first for Philippine television.”

It is expected that covering and transmitting the UAAP in full HD will enhance the viewing experience as the pictures are more alive and crisp.

Viewers would need an HD box to get a hold of the UAAP “HD experience,” dubbed as the “second best thing to being there.”

Musngi, meantime, said that those without an HD box who would watch the UAAP on standard definition (on ABS-CBN’s Studio 23 and Balls Channel) will still have an improved viewing experience.

“Mas malutong ang kulay, mas makikita ang fouls,” assured Musngi.

When asked by the press how much ABS-CBN spent on HD technology, Musngi admitted that it was indeed an investment, refusing to reveal the exact amount of money used. “I can only tell you that the UAAP is worth it.”

Contract concerns

It has been nine years since the UAAP and ABS-CBN Sports forged a partnership. Musngi noted that 2009 is the last year between UAAP and ABS-CBN Sports.

“Negotiations are moving rather well,” he told ABS-CBN News, pertaining to talks of a contract renewal.

“Both sides are working together for an early resolution,” he added.

Musngi also cited ABS-CBN Sports’ efforts to promote other UAAP sports apart from basketball. He, however, mentioned the “sheer impossibility” of giving airtime to all sports.

“Every season, we develop at least two other sports,” he said. He mentioned that women’s volleyball is gaining ground.

He explained that giving focus on basketball does not mean they are sacrificing other sports for basketball. Though he stressed, “It’s still basketball.”

My Sky HD signals look great.  I just noticed that there is a slight judder during sweeping pan shots of highly-detailed HD landscapes.  Otherwise, the images (especially close-ups) were crystal clear and 3D-like.  As for the UAAP broadcasts, the judder problem is more pronounced but there was a drastic improvement after we ran our set-top box continuously for a couple of days (we don't shut off the set-top box - just the TV).  I'm guessing that a firmware upgrade for the set-top box would solve these minor irritants.

 ;D

Post by: tetablanco on Jul 14, 2009 at 08:07 AM
Yes its good na HD is around the corner but skycable is not helping promote it in anyway by having 500php and all the charges for 2 channels. All that will come out is we tried HD it was not really succesful here in the Philippine....duh its because you greedy people pegged unreasonably high for people to watch

The additional P499 you pay for HD broadcasts include 3 HD channels (History HD, Discovery HD, and Balls HD for UAAP broadcasts) plus, I think, around 5 new SD channels (History, FX, etc.).  While my SkyDigital channels only reached up to around channel 142, my upgrade increased it to channel 164 (?) with some extra SD channels thrown in.

balls HD also broadcast the NCAA games live yesterday.
that means balls HD will have live broadcast everyday starting 2pm except tuesdays dahil walang UAAP & NCAA games. baka replays ang ipalabas.
i wonder what balls HD will feature after the UAAP & NCAA season is over. maybe UFC in HD?

Question to those who have the HD Box.
Does my existing cable wires inside the house compatible? Im currently using the ordinary skycable box to watch cable tv.
My cable wires are all line inside the wall thru a PVC pipe and cannot be change.
What about the Cignal HD? do they used existing wires? or install new ones? That would be unsightly if they used new wires going thru inside the house.

Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: dr_dohh on Jul 28, 2009 at 04:50 PM
Hey guys just got skycable HD. My audio signal is also stereo. UAAP games, di naman slo mo all the time. i just noticed that when you change it to that particular channel (balls HD), initially it slows down for a couple of seconds, mga less than 10, then normal speed na ulit. di naman bothersome para sa akin. kasi when you ab it with the really bad signal of studio 23, halata. For the UAAP games, I also noticed na wala na ang mga advertising. no more logos, so you just get the signal. also no time outs and commercial breaks. so pag may "extra-curricular activities" during commercial, kitang kita ang action.  ;D

whats more bothersome is the lack of HD content. sobrang boring nung programs IMHO. But, for some reason I also get BTV signal, among the other channels mentioned on the previous posts. so that more than makes up for the lack of content.

With regards to firmware updates, I think the digibox has the capability to download the updates if the cable operator allows it. This was the case with some cable operators abroad for tweaks and improvements.

Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: Mr. Big Boy on Jul 24, 2010 at 07:28 PM
7 Channels na pala ang HD ng SKY.  Real HD ito hindi tulad ng sa Cignal na upscaled lang yung iba.  Nakikita ko dun sa Digibox ko yung mga HD Channels assignment as follows.

164 - Discovery HD
165 - History Channel HD
166 - HBO HD
167 - Balls HD
168 - Reserve HD
169 - Fox Crime HD
170 - Star Movies HD
171 - Nat Geo HD
172 - Reserve HD

Kung may taga SKY dito, may tanong lang ako kung additional 750 pa rin ba yung subsciption fee for HD package on top of the regular fee for SKY gold?  Saka kung may tie-in period ba ito ng morethan 1 year.  
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: Stagea on Jul 25, 2010 at 11:29 AM
Hanggang 166 pa din sa channel listing ng box ko. 3 HD channels lang accessible for me (Discovery HD, History HD and Balls HD).

Sa website nila tatlo pa din eh.

May test broadcast kaya that time?

Saan lugar ka ba? Kasi dito ako sa QC.  The Channel list for HD dun sa DigiBox ko parang permanent na yung mga 7 HD Channels + 2 Reserve Channels for HD so di ko alam kung Test Broadcast yun.  Pero andun sila one week na.  Hindi ko lang alam kung may additional fee ang SKY dahil dumami na yung HD Channels nila 7 na sa last count ko nga.  Ito nga yun channel assignments for HD.

164 - Discovery HD
165 - History Channel HD
166 - HBO HD
167 - Balls HD
168 - Reserve HD

TECH: SKYCABLE HDTV REVOLUTIONIZES CABLE TV VIEWING
(FIFA, UAAP and NCCA in HDtv)

Friday, July 09, 2010
Posted by Azrael Coladilla


SkyCable just got in time in the HD revolution and they now offer the SkyCable HD subscription to all tv and cable fans, and thanks to that HD decoder box that uses to decrupt SkyCable HD signal to your HD TV. I experienced a viewing party in a bar in Makati and we watch the FIFA World Cup Matches using the SkyCable HD and a samsung LED TV. It was bright, smooth and looks like that I'm watching the football match in a window. Although the feed sometimes got broken but everything is smooth and we expect delays everytime in cable tv, because the event is streamed live and the live feed causes the delays and pixelation, but over all, the HD broadcast is great! I even took some photos and feels like that I'm in the front seat. (more below)

HD broadcast and progamming is now in the Philippine market, and we have lots of channels and HD broadcast that can be be viewed in full HD, all you need is the SkyCable HD box and a LED or HD TV (Samsung was recommended to use here) And I heard that last September 2008, they tested and HDTV was presented the Ryder Cup Golf Tournament via SkyCable. Sky Cable HD one month subscription will be given if you purchase a Samsung LED or HD TV.

And the big news is that the 73rd season of the UAAP and 86th season of NCAA will be brought via the vivid colors, crisp and HIGH DEFINITION in SkyCable HDtv. Balls HD channel 67 will be the main arena for all sports action in full HD glory, and the first fight will start on July 10, 2010 for the DLSU vs. UP match in UAAP. Don't also forget that the 2010 World Cup is also in HDtc.

For more information, please call the Customer Service Hotline at 631-0000 or send a text message to (0917) 631-0000 and (0918) 863-1000. You may also log on to www.skycable.com.

I just called Sky, and they told me that Balls HD (167) would be for Pay Per View.

Channels 168 to 172 are yet to be functional, and that a separate subscription is needed to access those channels. I asked if they have a price for these added channels, and I was advised that there is still no pricing info.
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: jason13 on Jul 26, 2010 at 09:49 AM
Naunahan na pala ako,  :D

The new channels FoxCrime HD, Star Movies HD and Nat Geo HD will be added on August 1.
It will have a subscription fee of 299 for all 3 HD channels. This is aside from the 499 pesos fee for Discovery HD, History HD, HBO HD and Balls HD.

So, to sum up the HD subscription fee, that would be 499+299 = 798 pesos for all the HD channels.

Yep, you need to update or reset your Digibox. You can do it yourself or call Sky.
After the reset, Balls HD will be HBO HD and the 5 HD channels, 3 new ones and 2 reserved channels will show up as well.  :)

Would you happen to know the procedure for the reset (standard white Coship box)? I spoke with two people last night, and neither was completely helpful (aside from telling me that the other channels are yet to be available).

Yup, it was quite simple after I figured out the menu password. LOL.

You did help me with pricing though, as I was told that there was no pricing yet for those additional channels. I will subscribe to these channels in advance. :)

I wish they gave these channels for free to HD subscribers though. :D 3 measly channels per step up is not enough.

Hopefully they give it out for free, again, hopefully...since their competitor, Cignal Satellite TV might add Discovery HD and ESPN HD this coming August as well, I think. :D

They told you that there is no pricing yet but when I called Sky, they told me its 299 in addition to 499.
It seems some Skycable phone reps or maybe most of them are not aligned or calibrated with the information about their services and/or product which I really don't like. Although it's not August 1 yet, maybe by then we will know if it's free or not.

798 lang sa 7 True HD Channels?  Not bad at all affordable na yung 7 HD Channels. Para ka ng nanonood ng Blu-ray movies araw araw and for that price compare kung bibili ka ng BD's eh mura talaga, tapos may mga great documentaries pa from Discovery HD, History Channel HD at NatGeo HD pa!

Yung Balls HD diba free yan hanggang ngayon, I mean kasama na siya sa HD package?

Yung mga HD Channels ba ng SKY walang logo like dun sa Cignal na may mga logo ng Cignal yung mga HD channels nila?  Ang pangit kasi na ganun. 

Sana SKY could carry the GEMTV HD Broadcast na rin, para hindi na kailangan bumili ng ISDB STB to get their HD Signal, nakita ko kasi sa Trinoma na merong HD Broadcast na terrestial ang GEMTV sa display ng Devant LED HDTV na may built-in na ISDB Tuner.

Will the HD box upscale the standard def channels? Is it better to use the HD box over the regular digibox when watching SD channels?

When do you think skycable broadcast in native 16:9 format. Watching regular cable really sucks on an lcd compared to a crt tv.

It will output the SD channels in 1080i, but the built-in scaler is quite poor. The highly compressed signal just looks bad when viewed in a big TV. Parang thumbnail na inexpand sa dami ng artifacts hahaha.

Post by: Stagea on Aug 16, 2010 at 01:08 PM
I have both packages now.

So far, Fox Crime HD and Star Movies HD are not as good as the other channels in terms of PQ. A lot of the material happen to be merely HD-enhanced SD programming (just like HBO HD in the past).

I have both packages now.

So far, Fox Crime HD and Star Movies HD are not as good as the other channels in terms of PQ. A lot of the material happen to be merely HD-enhanced SD programming (just like HBO HD in the past). Even their HD programs don't have the detail or sharpness of Nat Geo HD, for example (higher compression perhaps?).

Aside from the HD package, what SkyCable SD package do you currently have?

Is it possible to record to a DVR the HD feeds that pass through the HD digibox? I was going to buy a Pioneer DVR about a year ago (P24k w/ 80GB drive I think) but was told by the salesman that it wouldn't accept feeds from a skycable digibox.

You might need to use a PVR with a HD-capable component input, because the HDMI output probably employs HDCP. Hauppage sells a PVR with this feature (Gefen stopped selling theirs).

Of course you can also use a PC-based system with HD component inputs.

mga bossing sky hd users. location ko is sampaloc.

first question. Meron na kaya sa amin?

second po Almost 10 years na kasi kaming skycable.plus naka sky broadband pa. ngayong gusto namin mag i vail yung HD. magkano yung initial payment? Succeeding payments (monthly); How many channels are HD?


please pasagot sa mga mababit dyan. Thank you. nga pala kamusta yung ordinary channels nyo like 2 ;5 and 7. sabi sakin ng tauhan medyo angat daw yung quality ng mga channels na yan compare sa digital box pero not in HD. tama po ba?
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: Stagea on Aug 30, 2010 at 02:40 PM
5000 ang one time charge for the HD digibox, plus yung installation ng outlet (kung wala pang existing). 6 HD channels for 799 per month (or 3 HD channels for 499 per month) on top of your SD subscription.

Yung channels 2, 5 and 7 do seem to look less compressed compared to other SD channels. However, mukhang ganun din naman ang result sa SD digibox namin.

5k is only for the HD box, hiwalay po ang installation charge.

Yes, monthly ng Sky (let's say 1000 pesos for sky gold), tapos 799 pesos. This is for a single TV po. Additional TVs will have additional outlet charges (and additional upfront installation costs and box costs).

The initial cash out for SkyCable's HD installation can set you back but its already cheaper compared to Cignal's HD-Only Inital cash out which costs P 9490. You can have it for least but it's kinda confusing and complicated, well, based on their website.

Ipon muna kung mabigat sa bulsa, sayang ang HDTV if you don't have HD channels.  ;)

Totoo bang may local HD show na daw on SKY HD?  I heard that the new Sarah Gernimos show called "Idol" which was shot in HD was shown or is being shown on SKY HD daw?

I have not come across this (if this was true), but UAAP and NCAA were in HD via Sky. We also caught Net25's test HD broadcasts in the past, and they were also good.

I'm not sure if you get the same issue that I do. SD channels look better via Y/Pr/Pb in my system, versus HDMI. I get mosquito noise on SD channels via HDMI (HD channels look a bit cleaner via HDMI though).

sorry pero i can't test the component connection .. gamit ko na kasi sa dvd player .. okay naman sa akin ang sd channels .. kaso ayaw ko ng naka-stretch sila kaya inadjust ko sa settings na malagyan sila ng black bars sa sides .. para maretain yung 4:3 aspect ... pag sa hd channels automatic na mawawala na yung black bars ... ganyan din kase ang ginawa ko dati nung digibox pa lang kami ... :)
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: Stagea on Sep 13, 2010 at 02:57 PM
In my case kasi softer yung picture nung Y/Pr/Pb connection sa HD box (same settings sa TV), versus HDMI. Pero aside from being softer, parang mas malinis yung picture (less visible ang compression artifacts) with SD channels. Wala din yung mosquito noise around sharp edges like sa channel logo.

This is why I use both HDMI and analogue component connections. Pag SD channels, I select the analogue input.

1dol in HD on channel 168. Simulcast sa channel 2. Pansin ko lang may stuttering. Sana maayos pa. Mukhang buggy pa yung hd broadcast.

Edit: nabawasan yung stuttering nung binalik ko sa default resolution na 1080i. Nilagay ko kasi sa 720p. May nabasa kasi ako na mas maganda daw ang progressive kesa interlaced.

SkyCable distributes the HD feed in 1080/60i, afaik. In my experience, it's best to select 1080i and NTSC (makes it output in 60Hz). This reduces visible judder and other anomalies.

If you're sensitive to flicker and are using a Plasma screen, setting it to PAL (sets the output to 1080/50i) sometimes helps (if your TV frame-doubles this to 100Hz). This reduces flicker, in the expense of smooth motion.

di kaya dahil alam ng skycable na maraming mahilig sa basketball dito sa pinas kaya mataas ang singil sa NBA HD?
pero teka if you subscribe the NBA HD for a year FREE as in LIBRE ang "PACQUIAO vs MARGARITO" fight in HD???

1 Yr advance payment to get Pacquaio fight free

P299 x 12 months       = P3,588
One time paym for box= P3,000
total cashout               = P6,588

i think the PPV for Pacquaio is about P1K plus. so in effect you only paid P5,588 or P466 a month ( with HD digibox na and free hdmi pa yun ).  pwede na!!

Nice, you now have 100+ channels, why not add Crime and Investigation Channel for 50 pesos, ASN for NFL games worth 150 and Star Chinese Movies for 152 pesos. :D

Oh, Crime and Investigation and ASN are not in HD. Although ASN has an HD feed but Sky does not have it.
BTW, I think Sky will add more HD channels to have 10 HD channels all in all.

yung mga nakasubscribe sa pacquiao fight .. ano na nakalagay sa ch. 167? ... naka-block pa din yung sa akin ... kailan kaya may ipapalabas na kahit ano para maconfirm na subscribed na ... sa cignal daw kase may poster ni pacquiao-margarito at minsan may 24/7 teaser daw ...

EDIT: called sky customer service yesterday, dapat daw meron trailer ng sky hd na pinapalabas .. after about 30 minutes ay naayos din ... now waiting mode sa laban ... as of 8:17am today (11/14/2010) ay wala pa yung ppv ni pacquiao ...
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: lithium_deuteride on Nov 14, 2010 at 07:20 AM
I get nothing at channel 167 so I called this morning.  Guess what, they asked me to email them a request for the Pacquiao-Margarito pay per view when all along I thought OK na yung phone request lang. WTF? Why didn't they advise that before? These guys don't have their act together.

Now it's already 8:20 a.m. and all I'm getting is Skycable commercials in an endless loop.  I'm wondering; won't they show the undercard fights?
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: Grendaizer on Nov 14, 2010 at 07:30 AM
Same thing here. All i'm is a looping series of HD ads. Called them up earlier and was told the fights would be aired starting 8am but it's already 8:30am and it's still the same loop. Least they should do is indicate how much longer before they start showing the fights.

Anybody out there who already has Skycable feeds of the fight?

i'm getting the same thing ... the looping commercials are shown since the ppv broadcast has not started yet ... i think the undercards will be shown ... whatever will be shown on the ppv in the states, i think we'll get the same ...

can't wait .. hope the ppv broadcast will start already ...

EDIT: i just read on a boxing thread na start na ... next fight ay Jose Benavidez vs Winston Mathis ...

Nice.. thanks! Just wondering what's the content of the NBA premium kapag offseason. Kasi in a sense you're paying for 3 months of no content if you pay the 1 year thing right? as opposed to paying for 350 for the months when the NBA is actually on :)

Yeah exactly what i was thinking - pero lugi ka if you subscribe 300/year.. The NBA is on for about 7 months only. Baka dapat playoffs lang ang isubscribe hehe

I guess if its included in the Cignal channel lineup, mas ok yun.

If you'll notice in picure 7 of the techie.com.ph site, it looks like the Sky DVR is a dual-tuner unit so that means you can either watch one channel live while recording another one simultaneously, or record two channels simultaneously while you're watching a third previously recorded program on the HDD ;D

Gusto ko sanang magtanong kung paano itong hdbox na to.
Ano na yung magiging mga channels mo kapag may hdbox ka na? puro hd channels lang ba like nba premium, hbo hd? or may kasama na rin ung hd box na channels na pinapanuod ko sa skycacble 280 ko. It means that add - on lang ung hd channels? tapos magiging mas malinaw ba ung non hd channels? Please answer my questions. THANKS!  ;D

Sky Cable (as the name denotes) is cable TV, so you must be in an area serviced by the cable network of Sky.  I would suggest that you wait until you get your Bravia as it would be pointless to subscribe to Sky HD with just a standard TV.

it's free if you have a SkyCable hd box but it's not really a channel that has regular programming shown on it. only certain sports events have appeared in ch. 167 like UAAP Men's Basketball, and recently the Azkals-Mongolia match.

Pacquiao-Margarito bout was also shown in ch.167 but only if you availed the PPV.

Eh pano kung naka plan 499 o kea Platinum ka tapos may digibox edi wala din ung 499 o platinum kasi bibilhin mo pa ung mga channels na katulad ng hbo, playhouse disney, star movies? Mas maigi na lang ata na mag plan 280 ka kaysa mag platinum kasi kumpleto na din ung mga channels at kasi masasayang lang?

Our cable signal is clear with the Digibox. There are optional channels you can add to your subscription. Channels included is dependent on your plan. Digibox is needed for you to avail the 499 or Platinum plan.
Plan 280 is the basic plan, it does not have HBO, Star Movies and Playhouse Disney. Platinum plan is the highest plan package for SkyCable and has the most number of Channels. Plan 499 is not Gold, its simply Plan 499. Gold package costs 1000 pesos.

1. Pero pag nakakabit ung digibox, mawawala lang un lahat and you need to buy those channels?
Yes, buy/add or upgrade your SkyCable Package.

2. Kapag platinum ba tapos may digibox ka, ano na lang ung mga channels na wala?
You need the Digibox to be able to upgrade to Platinum. Channels not included with the Platinum package are Crime and Investigation, ASN, NBA Premium SD, MBC Korea, SBS Korea, Phoenix InfoNews Channel, Phoenix Chinese Channel, Star Chinese Movies, Star News, Star One and Star Gold.

3. At tsaka may tanong ako, analog ba ung cable kapag wala ung digibox?
Yes, SkyCable is currently running on hybrid-mode, meaning their outside cable lines carry both analog and Digital signals but eventually or in the near future, Sky will turn off its analog signal. Some areas around Metro Manila already has the analog signal turned off. These areas are the ones that have a high percentage of signal theft or signal tapping.

I just called skycable and was told they'll call me tom morning to discuss how to "upgrade" to the iRecord. It sucks though that the unit doesn't allow you to backup your recorded shows to a backup drive. It won't take long to fill up a 320GB drive with HD shows and being forced to delete shows you'd want to keep will become increasingly frustrating.

The lack of backup capability was most likely an intentional "feature" by SkyCable to prevent pirating of shows recorded on the HDD, particularly PPV events like Paquiao fights.  Besides, DVR/PVR's are not really meant to be a permanent storage space for recorded shows, rather they are meant as a "buffer" to hold your shows to let you watch them at your most convenient time.

Yes, they're not meant to be permanent storage space for recorded shows. That's exactly why I might want to back up certain shows on to an external drive. In the US, there's an option to pay a one-time fee that allows you to back up your recorded shows on external storage devices (including usb thumb drives). The check they have in place is you can only play those backed up shows (encrypted) on the provided PVR/DVR. I wish they offered that option here too.

Anyway, I had it installed last saturday and it works as advertised. No more waiting for scheduled replays so i'm happy :)

It looks like Sky's changing the encryption used on their network: when we had an additional outlet installed in our house last week, I noticed the digibox provided doesn't use a smart card anymore and now uses Verimatrix encryption instead of the Irdeto system used in the earlier digiboxes.  Even the guy who installed the outlet and box said that all new digiboxes are now cardless.

The new SD digibox (not sure about the HD one as we only use SD for both outlets) looks like this:
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/1/15/Third_Generation.JPG/800px-Third_Generation.JPG)

It's pretty much the same as the earlier Digiboxes other than the simplified design with no clock/channel number display, and also the S-video output was removed (both I guess for cost-cutting).  From what I've read about Verimatrix, their encryption system is software/server based meaning the decryption keys are stored on Sky's end (unlike the previous Irdeto system where the keys were stored on the inserted smartcard)  and apparently downloaded into the box each time it's turned on because there's a short "loading" screen when you turn the new digibox on.

How much is the HD pay-per-view for Pacquiao vs Mosley?

P1,500.  But it is given FREE if you get the NBA Premium HD and maybe other HD packages but lock in for 6 months.

i don't what's up with NBA premium this playoffs. they don't show direct uncut feeds of games anymore. they now keep showing that darn talking ball commercial during timeouts and worse they don't quickly cut back to the game!

viewing experience isn't how it was before which was like you're actually in the arena watching timeouts and intermission festivities.

I agree.  Mas okay yung dati na pwede mo mapakinggan yung pinaguusapan ng mga commentators o kaya see usa commercials.  Guess we have to inform Solar about this since they're the ones in charge of NBA Premium TV.

Sir on top po ito nang inyong current plan. And then, you have the option to pay for the HD box outright or 399 ata per month for 12 months, if I'm not mistaken ha. ang maganda lang dito, yung SD signal, upscaled na din to 1080i, kse yung ito yung signal na lumalabas sa info button nang TV ko eh, of course malayo ang upscaled SD sa native HD signals

Crap! Anyone of you guys here already has Sky's PVR?
Called Sky and found out they ran out of PVR boxes.
The next batch for the PVR boxes is scheduled to be available on the 3rd week of June.
Oh well, lapit na June.

Which made me think, kala ko ba walang pera ang Pinoy, pero naubusan ng PVR ang Sky.
The price for installing the box is as high as 4999 pesos, if Sky ordered 1000 units, that would be like what, almost 5 million pesos. Sounds like a lot of money but I can say its only breakeven for Sky.

I guess ok lang naman kung ordinary connector lang. I actually replaced the one provided by sky since it was short and I needed to move the HD box, therefore I needed a longer one and it turned out ok.

This is OT already.
Cignal was able to add more HD channels after they launched the service and with MVP owning the company, I think money wouldn't be a problem.

The new channels can be interesting since its on HD and the programming for Star Movies, Star World and Fox HD are different. Aside from that, HBO HD is time-shifted, so its like having 4 different channels. :)

You like Channel [V] HD? I like MTV Live HD better.
Channel [V] HD  would only be just a simulcast of Channel [V] SD while MTV Live HD has an entirely different programming. :)

Post by: Grimlock on Oct 14, 2011 at 04:36 PM
OT- Although I like MTV, channel [V] HD is a more likely candidate for Sky & Cignal to add to their programming since they already acquired the license for FOX programs e.g. NatGeo HD, Star HD channels, etc.

Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: KARTOG on Oct 22, 2011 at 06:33 PM
I was able to talk to a Telesales agent from SkyCable this morning.

Apparently, to get the iRecord, you have to pay for installation to the tune of 4,999 then there is a monthly fee of 399 for the iRecord device ON TOP of SD subscription and selected HD pack.  Wow, isn't this too much, I'm a current SkyCable Digibox subscriber, how hard or expensive can it be for Sky to send someone to plug in that iRecord set-top box?

And the signal is 1080i.  I was very interested to get an iRecord before but after finding out about the costs involved I don't think it's worth it.

According to the agent I talked to:

a) HD Box fee/Installation fee: 3000, no more monthly payments for the HD Box
b) HD Recorder installation fee: 5000, plus 399 monthly "usage" fee for the HD Recorder

on top of this, there is an HD Pack fee for your pack of choice.  Since I started as a prepaid subscriber therefore my digibox is paid for. I get to refund 2000.

It's business and Cignal also does the same thing. Babawiin lang nila lahat ng gastos nila sa mga subs.  :D

Even with those kind of fees, I am quite surprised that SkyCable subscribers are actually availing of those boxes.

What's even worse is their fee for their iRecord thingy.  They call it "installation fee" which, by the way, is 2,000 bucks higher than their standard HD box.  "Installation fee" because you get suckered to pay a monthly "usage" fee for the iRecord device, on top of any HD Pak you choose.  So not only do you pay 2,000 pesos more for the recorder, you also pay 399 a month for the rest of your life using this device.  >:(

This is not good at all.  I hope Cignal offers a similar device, with more rational payment schemes.

All those extra fees for using PVR's/Recorder boxes is not unique to Sky, Pay TV companies around the world all charge extra to access HD channels and/or use their PVR box.  An example is Foxtel in Australia which charges a A$150 (approx PhP6k) "upgrade" (installation) fee for their "iQHD" PVR box, as well as an additional A$10 (approx. PhP445) fee per month to access their HD channels as well as for the use of the iQHD box.

So they both charge an installation fee, Sky's is P5K while Foxtel's is ~P6K.  But, as per your info Foxtel charges ~P445 for HD channels AND use of an HD recorder.  SkyCable charges P399 for the use of the iRecord, AND then charges you separately for the HD pack of your choice.

There's a huge difference in usage of "and/or" here.  In your foreign provider example, Foxtel charges a single fee for HD channels AND use of their PVR box.  SkyCable charges a fee for HD channels or use of their PVR box.  That's still the point here.

That's the whole point.  SkyCable's HD service is just too high.  It's not even a question of whether a person can afford it or not.  If you can afford to pay that high for a basic subscription, an iRecord device, and an HD pack, well...good for you.

But isn't that why we're here in the first place, to discuss these things?  Why the arrogant tone?  Wait, do you work for Sky?  Maybe you own it?  Why are you so being defensive about SkyCable's sky-high prices?

pwede naman na mangyari ikaw lang ang may hd tapos yung iba analog, just make sure yung pagsasaksakan mo ng hd box ay hindi yung main outlet ninyo.

another option is that if you have a SkyBroadband connection they can split the cable you're using on your modem and connect it to your hd box. Like in our case because the TV cable signal is weak in our household and fortunately the cable internet modem is in the same room and just beside our HDTV, SkyCable decided to split the cable in our modem and attached it to the hd box.

I will not recommend to have your cable broadband line splitted to internet use.
Knowing that sky in some areas are using the same old cable from the start and they just adopted a technology to make it work for cable internet.

it may be okay on your case, but most cases it will affect your broadband speed.

not unlessyour location is already using the new generation fiber optic cable.

I recently applied for Sky Cable last Dec 28, 2011

Initial installation fee is 2,000 pesos (with SD digibox), no refund though, pero no lock-in period.

Plan kinuha ko is 499 pesos.

Then 1st week ng Jan, I called Sky Cable customer service para to inquire about the HD service.

Then they said may promo sila na free upgrade from SD digibox to Coship HD digibox, no need to pay additional 3,000 pesos for the HD box.

Pero naka package na HD channel is the REVOLUTION pack, which is 299 a month (on top of my 499/month), locked-in for 1 year...which is not bad if you enjoy watching HD.

Kahapon ikinabit yung HD box (Coship), kinuha nila yung existing digibox ko then pinalitan ng HD box for FREE.

Channels are

FOX HD
FOX CRIME HD
FOX FAMILY MOVIES HD
FOX PREMIUM MOVIES HD
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL HD
STAR WORLD HD
STAR MOVIES HD
ESPN HD (free)

Sulit na for additional 299/month with FREE HD box.

Hi Sir, yes there is a RCA connection po, may Spdif (optical) out din Sir.

Complain ko lang, I can't seem to decode the audio to 5.1 e.  I've tried direct HDMI to my receiver ayaw, also thru optical cable ayaw din.  Setting ko naman sa audio ng HD box is AC3 (5.1 naman yun d b?), kasi 2 options lang setting sa audio  (PCM & AC3).

Pero I can't seem to decode the Dolby 5.1 na sound.

If you're saying po Sir is you want 2 HD box po, they don't allow it po sa package nung FREE HD box.  may bayad na daw po ng 3,000 pesos para sa 2nd HD box yun Sir.   I've inquired na rin po kasi about that e..ganun po sabi nila.

As of SKY, right now yung FREE HD box is only package to the REVOLUTION PACK.  If you want another package siguro pwede naman po i-avail on top of your 499 (SD) + 299 (HD) + the package you want....e.g. + 350 php (NBA premium HD).

Can anyone who've tried this confirm if this is true?

in my situation, dahil mahina yung signal ng cable tv sa bahay namin, instead of using the cable that's plugged in sa TV namin, what they did is use the cable that's plugged in sa internet modem namin and split it para malagay sa HDBOX.

may analog signal parin kami sa TV namin kasi may sariling cable parin na nakakabit for TV and then yung broadband cable and split sa modem and HDBOX which is then connected sa TV through HDMI.

i don't know if they'll allow you to split your analog cable because i think hihina yung signal ninyo, or another reason too.

Hope you can help me now... how come I am paying more than the 499 for SD? I think almost a thousand then they added the 299 for HD and another charge for an extension drop to a second LED monitor.

If I upgrade beyond the REVO pack, what would that be called and what's the HD line-up? Would that mean I also need to continue to pay for the GOLD (not sure how it is called) on the SD line-up?

Hi Tony,

Wife just informed me na you lose a lot of the channels from 999 Full SD pack if you switch to 499.  I think what they did to you is to simply add 299 to your current 999 SD subscription.  If you go beyond 299, meron daw 2 addtl hd channels for 499 and the full pack of 12 channels for 899. So if you dont mind losing some SD channels, then switch to 499 base subscription.  My wife said, "no thanks"...hehehe

Ang di ko mag-getz, bakit libre HD box kung konti and then may bayad na 3K kung full set...eh mas mahal din naman ang subscription kung full HD set, and mababawi rin nila eventually sa subscription fee ang cost ng HD tuner.


Hope you can help me now... how come I am paying more than the 499 for SD? I think almost a thousand then they added the 299 for HD and another charge for an extension drop to a second LED monitor.

The message was sent to me this morning via sms.

I quickly replied back and pointed out that I reported the problem to Cignal people more than a year ago and did not hear back and since then the service has been dead.

I'll drop them off and just stick with Skycable (SD+HD) and my other reliable provider, Destiny :)

for me, the advantage of having NBA Premium TV is they have more games shown on it. other shows like NBA Gametime, NBA Action are also shown on BTV.

All-Star weekend is also a plus on NBA Premium TV because of their extended coverage.

skycable plan 250 ako. di ako satisfied sa video ng skycable ko. medyo pixelated. maybe dahil composite connection lang yung digibox.

sky offered me NBA Premium TV HD channel for additional 350 per month, 6 months lockin. i will just pay 1,500 for the HDMI digibox.

1. mas lilinaw kaya yung mga HD channels pag naka HDMI digibox na?

I did the same and the "free" HD channels are still intact. Sometimes nadadagdagan pa nga. Now I get "free" ASN, on top of "free" HBO, etc.  ;D

HBO is free? i guess i miss on that one. but Cartoon Network HD is still free over at ch 167 for now.

earlier i saw on Fox Movies Premium that the Fox Movies Play is now available for Sky HD subscribers. i wanted to try if it's good so I registered online and it said it was a success. However, when i tried watching a video, it says that I have to call Sky first. Bummer. >:(

the reason why i registered online was thinking that it was quicker and more of an ease than calling Sky's hotline.

for those wondering what Fox Movies Play is, it's a movies on-demand service. check it at foxmoviesplay.com

skycable plan 250 ako. di ako satisfied sa video ng skycable ko. medyo pixelated. maybe dahil composite connection lang yung digibox.

sky offered me NBA Premium TV HD channel for additional 350 per month, 6 months lockin. i will just pay 1,500 for the HDMI digibox.

1. mas lilinaw kaya yung mga HD channels pag naka HDMI digibox na?
2. kung magterminate ako NBA premium tv after 6 months, malinaw pa rin kaya yun SD channels compared kung naka composite connection?
@desertfox615: Kung kaya mong pang i stretch yung budget mo, get the Revo Pack299 para libre ang HD Box (1yr lock in) then mag add ka ng NBA Premium no need for 6 mons lock in period.
Eto mga channels ng Revo Pack
FOX HD
FOX CRIME HD
FOX FAMILY MOVIES HD
FOX PREMIUM MOVIES HD
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL HD
STAR WORLD HD
ESPN HD (free) (Australian Open)
ASN HD (NHA & NCAA)

Here's my comment on your queries.
1. mas lilinaw kaya yung mga HD channels pag naka HDMI digibox na? Yes magiging 1080i even yung SD channels medyo lilinaw, pwedeng mabawasan yung pixelated na SD channels mo.
2. kung magterminate ako NBA premium tv after 6 months, malinaw pa rin kaya yun SD channels compared kung naka composite connection? Yes kahit di ka magsubscribe sa NBA Premium as long as HD Box ang gamit mo mas malinaw sya compare sa composite connection since HDMI sya. Composite is 480 vs HDMI 1080

Add lang ako ng comment.

I am currently at plan 280 then upgraded to Revo pack @299 (no cash out) and NBA premium SD @150.

NBA premium even in SD is already great compared to the coverage of BTV. I'll just upgrade it to HD before All-star weekend until playoffs then just go back to SD after the finals wala naman lock-in kasi eh. :D

nope. naka digibox lng ako.,SD. naginquire lang ako sa kanila wat if kunwari iaavail ko HD nila with Revo Pack. No need to pay for the HD box. but if maguupgrade ka ng plan 899 babayaran mo un HD box for 3500.

mag revo pack ka muna then after a month ka na lang magupgrade. I think wala ka paring babayaran na HD Box pag nag paupgrade pero naka lock in ka pa rin ng 1 yr and it will start by the time na nagpa upgrade ka. Grab mo na habang may promo pa. Sulit naman yung revo pack.

Hi,

Question lang po about pagdating sa cable provider,

just bought a 42 inch lcd tv eh.. so sanay tlga mata ko sa CRT pero aware na ako na papanget tlga SD/cable viewing nmin. Analog Cable lang gmit nmin kc Cable link lang kmi medyo snowy at malabo ang picture kc na stretch nga.... only skimmed this thread so the question is lilinaw ba ang Picture quality nmin kung mag SKY Cable kmi kasi gmit ng sky Digital dba? so kpag may digibox din lilinaw ndin? or mas malinaw kung hdmi cable na gmit kaysa sa composite cable khit hd yung content/channel?
Title: Re: SkyCable HD

not really, having a digibox does not mean it is digital

imagine using same decades old copper wire and plugging a "digibox"
do the math, not all in service area are enjoying the fiber optic technology for this.

mas madami nag complain nung nalagyan ng digibox yung previous direct to tv coax connection nila.
ang intent lang kasi ng digibox is to curve the splitter piracy ng analog cable.

definitely by using digibox mawawala na yung snowy. kung issue sayo ang budget kuha ka muna ng 280 then after a few days switch to revopack to get an HD box. Pero bago ka magsubscribe ask mo muna kung may promo pa sa revo pack. BTW since Cable Link provider mo I guess your from Paranaque or Las Pinas so may line na dyan ng Sky.

decades old? hahaha
you gotta be kidding me.

SkyCable already uses Fiber Optics in all of its serviceable areas and why would you require a Digibox if you don't have a digital signal passing through those wires. In fact they already have fiber optics way way back, although not the whole of Metro Manila. Sky invested a lot and upgraded their Outside plants to come up with their digital service.

Sky's digibox intent isn't only to curb signal piracy but its one of the main purpose. Sky came up with the Digibox to provide more channels, accommodate Package tiering, provide HD, DVR/PVR and soon VOD.

Pentium4, I know you are a dealer, maybe a Territorial Partner of Cignal but if all of your comments are meant to sabotage SkyCable, you might as well stick posting to the Cignal thread. You're comments which does not have enough basis, are not helpful and are not needed in this thread.

BTW, speaking of complaints although OT, check out Cignal's FB page which has tons of them:

so, why our area does not have HD service? unless there's other reason why no HD.

@conan: did you see any badmouthing coming from my post?
no need to and I don't do either. so, why post an OT page?

I only tried to answer the question of the poster.
If it is not so, then you may delete it for correction.
I stand by it though, digibox is primarily to curve the splitter connection and you may check it on press release when they started implementing it. other benefits was for the HD signal and cable internet.

sorry teacher, thanks for the correction also, it should be curb down.

digibox improves picture quality from 210k pixel analog broadcast to 480i (307k pixel) standard definition broadcast.
however, to maximize your LCD TV (HD Ready) it is recommended to get at least 720p / 1080i

to check if your sky connection is now fully digital, you should not be able to watch on your tv if connected coax direct to tv.

this is the reason nag dadalawang isip ako mag HD Revo Pack. Baka di rin substantial maging quality ng HD channels ko at masayang lang yung 299 monthly.

Having a connection by bypassing Sky's digibox does not necessarily mean your line isn't fully digital.
Damn, Pentium4, what are you trying to prove here. Are you trying to say that your Cignal service is better than Sky.

Sky's cable lines are hybrid, meaning it can carry both Analog and Digital signals.
The analog signal can easily be turned off if Sky determined the area has rampant signal theft and piracy.
Sky's analog signal will also be turned off eventually if Sky needs all the analog frequency for its digital service and once the government gives out the go signal for all tv broadcasters and pay-tv providers to go digital.

 Sulit talaga itong Sky HD, for some reason I have the black HD box instead of the coship that they gave during the trial. I prefer this black one though faster channel surfing and it has 1080p pero parang ang baba ng fps pag 1080p, the only thing I miss is the summary of the show that the coship has.

And my SD channels looks 10x better than with a digibox this is one of the main reason I upgraded, I think the HD box upscales the SD channels and it is doing a great job.

And we can still watch the SD shows at our rooms without any digi/hd box thanks sa hybrid analog/digital connection :)

I believe today Outdoor Channel HD and Fashion TV HD will on SkyCable's Channel 179 and 180 respectively.
Channel 167 on the other hand will be Sky's Freeview Channel HD, which will feature Sky's HD channel for 15 days, starting with History HD.

So far using a signal divider to the VHS tuner nakaka kuha ng signal pero grainy ang pic. The question is pwede kaya ako buy ng digibox without using a smart card and the pic will look better?

Nope.
Paki try mo i on yung VHS kung may pagbabago yung pic. kung wala, malabo talaga yang analog signal nyo dyan. So no choice but to request for another digibox kahit SD lang then magbayad ka ng monthly fee I think 250 or 350/month, and tanong mo rin kung may lock in period. Sana wala para kahit 1 month lang sulit na yun.

Post by: usbslave on Mar 27, 2012 at 03:28 PM
So from plan 280 and 1100 sa HD (750 for innovation and revolution pack plus ESPN + 350 for NBA Premium HD), I decided to upgrade my plan to SKY 499 to avail of the 899 HD Power Pack.  I also removed 3 channels costing P220 and added 1 channel worth P100.  From P1900, my bill is going to be P1748. 

Now, I asked a sky cable representative if I could upgrade to the HD All-In-Pack P1199 after around 6 months or so (when more HD channels are included in the 1199 pack), and the rep told me that i have to wait for one year to be able to upgrade because of the lock-in period of the 899 HD.  I don't get this at all.  Isn't a lock-in period for the prevention of early termination? Now, it is also preventing me from upgrading whenever I want. 
Isn't a lock-in period for the prevention of early termination? I think yes pero kung mag terminate ka before 1 yr sisingilin sayo yung cost ng HD Box.
"It is also preventing me from upgrading whenever I want." Medyo disagree ako dito, try mo kayang tanggalin muna yung NBA Premium(after finals na lang) then after a month mag 1199 pack ka. Kasi nakapag upgrade ka nga from revo pack 299 to 899 w/in lock in period, how come na yung 899 to 1199 eh hindi pwede.

Ok na. Nagkamali lang yung rep.  Tinanong niya sa concerned team pwede daw mag upgrade anytime.  Carry over na lang ata yung lock-in period from previous HD package to the new HD package. 

Btw, thru twitter direct message ng sky ako naginquire.

So this will be 499 + 1199? And you still wont have NBA TV? 

Tama ba ako? Magulo kasi yung website nang Sky.

I just transferred kasi to a new condo...and they are exclusive to Sky. Right now, we are at the lowest plan (trial lang for a month) and then I had the Sky rep add Disney Junior (for my son) and NBA TV for me. To my dismay nga, walang Discovery Channel at the lowest plan or even the next plans. Walang ESPN at this level too.

Kainis.

How do i get my favorite channels at the most affordable plan combination?  I would like to have NBA TV, Discovery, Nat Geo, AXN , Disney Junior, ESPN.

SKY 499 + 899 HD Power Pack + Disney Junior (P100) + ESPN and Star Sports (P150) + Discovery Channel (50) = P1998

But if okay ka na sa Discovery HD, don't include Discovery Channel SD and pwede mapanood ESPN if direct yung cable sa tv pero hassle palipat-lipat.  

(SKY 499 has AXN and Nat Geo already. 899 HD Power Pack already has NBA Premium TV HD, Nat Geo HD, and Discovery HD pero iba yung mga pinapalabas sa SD version.)

So, P1998 less P50 kung ok ka na sa Discovery HD and less P150 for ESPN kung matiyaga ka maglipat ng cable from digibox to TV and vice versa. That would be P1798.

This is what I did to our extra tv!

Tried it. Didn't work. All i got was static if the TV was directly connected to the cable/coax outlet in the wall. Tried auto and manual tuning and got mostly static.

I also saw that the Skycable guy put in a high pass filter right at the coax outlet before putting in the coax cable heading towards my digibox. Removed that to see what would happen. Nothing as well.

Reconnected the digibox (without putting in the high pass filter) and reconnected to my tv. Parang mas malinaw ngayon. :p

However, not using the digibox did nothing for me. :(

had a problem in auto/manual searching in my box after changing frequency from 633 to 441 (as always) but eventually went ok after resetting.

first post! hehe

hey guys I recently subscribed to Skycable HD last April. got the black HD box. Just wondering if your "Recall" button on your remote is also not working? Don't know why. It's such a hassle having to press the numbers to get from 1 channel to the other when I'm only watching 2 channels.
mine is not working as well. any feedback from the others?
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: rickmor on May 18, 2012 at 09:44 PM
Gave my mom the silver hd box and black one. Big mistake! The black hd box takes about 30 seconds to boot up. The remote is totaly crap, recall button does not work and the remote signal is quite weak that you have to aim it directly at the box. I will call sky to replace this hd box back to the silver one.

got the 15 day trial for HD all in pack. nakakatuwa pala to, ngayun lang ulit ako ginanahan manood ng TV haha. sarap panoorin ng NBA premium TV. planning to remove my select channels and add revolution pack after the trial, 280 + 299 + 20 (for TLC favorite e haha) 600PHP. sana pwede yung ganun, and waive na nila yung installation fee.

questions lang:

pansin ko lang sa HD box, everytime on ko sya, nag tatanong ng program has been changed, do you want to search? tapos bawat channel, iba ang volume setting. defect kaya to ng box, or setting lang. baka meron na sa inyo naka experience.

also, yung nagpost na meron 1080p mode, I checked the manual, sabi on HD daw e 720p or 1080i lang. and wala ata akong nakitang options nung chineck ko kanina, i have the black box by the way. thanks.

yup, basta ilipat mo siya sa HD channel lilitaw yung message na Program has been changed. Press Exit lang. Napansin ko when it first happened & I press OK o di kaya I do a Manual Search, dala-dalawa lagi channels. Anybody else noticed this or experienced this? Kada-channel up or down twice lumilitaw yung channel. This isn't the case though if I do an "Auto Search".

BTW I already subscribed to the Pacquiao-Bradley Fight HD :) sana worth it!

how about the volume issue? bawat channel iba ang volume setting? is this a defect, o ganun lang talaga sya? thanks
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: go2guy on Jun 08, 2012 at 07:04 AM
sakin hindi naman iba-iba. lahat ng volume is 16. Yun ang default niya. Ginagalaw kong volume yung sa remote control ng TV not the HD box, nahihinaan kasi ako.

Yung sa Program change tingin ko glitch yun e. Akala ko ganun siya kapag may new channel or new channel lineup pero di naman so I think glitch ng model ng HD box.

ok thanks bro. mas gusto ko kasi sa box na lang adjust yung volume ayoko ng madaming hawak na remote. nakakabwiset lang, bawat channel ay ibang volume, doesnt make sense to me. papalitan ko na lang yung box and see. cheers

I have the same plan. Just recently upgraded. Pag silver ka, you just pay 799 for the box, then the 1199 all in plan monthly + 830 for silver plan + 250 if you want or have any additional box.. It's worth it to me, especially with all the sports. ;). And oh fashion tv is nice. ;D

Yes, you can upgrade to all-in pack anytime. Ma-re-reset lang yung 1-year lockin period mo kung kelan nagstart yung all-in package.

That's what I did because I needed another hd box for a 2nd tv. I used the revo pack promo para ma-waive yung 3k hd box installation fee for my first tv; then after two weeks, I upgraded to an all-in package plus irecord para libre naman yung irecord box for the 2nd tv. :D

Yup this note is posted in our latest bill statement. Says that Espn (31), Star Sports (32) and Fox (50) will only be available through the digibox.

Attention all F1 fans who watch through star sports will be affected! :D

I'm very happy with SkyCable's customer service recently. Like yesterday, I sent an email to their tele/customer sales asking for an email list of channels, related prices per channel, and postpaid options/promos because I'm trying to sort out the channels that me and my wife really need. I asked for the latest list because I think the ones posted in SKY's site is not updated. Within 5 mins a customer rep called my mobile and office #. He was very patient and explained to be all the options that I can take.

I'm doing a review because I plan to downgrade to 499, maintain my hd subscriptions, add those channels that we decided that we need (ANC & E!) and avail of the broadband service. Post review last night I think I will be saving around 300 pesos a month.

Will call them today to finalize my new customized plan :D

kasi ang Cignal kahit medyo baguhan pa pero ginagawa nila lahat para maka kuha ng mga client. bukod sa libre na Kit, libre installation may free pang 3 months plus mas maganda daw ang video ng Cignal. problema lang services nila sabagay bago palang kasi, pero malay mo di ba.. kung di gagawa paraan ang sky baka maraming lumipat. bukod sa mura kasi ang HD at PPV ng Cignal magdan mga offer ngayon ng cignal

Mine is slightly better at 75%.

Lately though screen freeze occur more often. I needed to turn off then on again. This has happened to me the past three days. If this persist I will call a CSR.

Also before I had ch 167 and 181 now these have no signal  or scrambled. No worries since it only showed skyhd infomercial on a loop.

I use the silver hd box, and it has a good feature that you can program your digibox remote with your tv. I usr a Panasonic 50x plasma and it works.

Now I have the freedom to use just one remote. Power, av selection and volume of tv via the digibox remote and I change channels via the same remote as well of course.

wala siya talaga. NBA Premium HD is on Power Pack. I'm on Revo pack ever since March/April & I had to get NBA Premium HD separately. I'm thinking of upgrading to Power Pack so I can get HBO HD, Discovery HD & History HD. What's stopping me is medyo di ko type ang shows na nasa HD ng History (puro Pawn Stars) & Discovery (wala yung A Haunting or the good shows on the SD version). I wish magkaroon ng CI (Crime Investigation) HD.

Kung naka HD Box ka... maganda na ang Signal ng ABS CBN hindi na nalalayo ang graphics nito sa HD Channel.. paunti unti siguro inaupgrade na ng Abs Cbn..Skycable HD yung UAAP maganda na ang graphics nito.. Sa mga Cable Channel Kung Ang Cinema One at ANC or Hero Channel magkakaron ng HD Version malamang mahihirapan na ang Cignal...

Cinema One / Hero / Animax - ang main reason ng iba bakit sila nananatili sa skycable.. dagdag mo pa ang teleradyo at ANC..

Ang tanging meron lang Cignal ay ang FOX Filipino... sadyang magandang balikan ang Enchantadia pero hanggang kailan??? hindi naman pwedeng for life palabas ang enchantadia, or darna dagdag muna ang Mulawin malamang ibalik nila ito. Kahit ako gusto ko magpakabit ng Cignal dahil lang sa Fox Filipino pero iniisip ko sayang pera.. in 6 months maaring wala na ang enchantadia sa Fox so useless na ulit.. masyado naman magastos kung 2 ang cable ko.. di hamak na mas maganda ang Cinema One sa PBO o Viva na halos bulok na ang Movies...

Isa rin sa Rason ko bakit napapaisip ako Mag Cignal..

Maraming nag sasabi napakamura ng Cignal.. sadyang totoo yan sa halagang 590.00 may NBA at HBO HD kana.., dito sa Skycable kailangan mo pa mag 499+899 para lang ma avail mo yung NBA at HBO HD

Sa ngayon marami pang maling pamamaraan ang cignal dahil nga sa bago palang sila ika nga nangangapa pa.in terms of technical support medyo problemado pa sila pero ang lahat naisasaayos paunti unti.. kaya wake up skycable management.. baka magulat nalang tayo hindi na magpapahuli si MVP para lang maiangat ang Cignal... Baka isang araw Exclusive na pala ang all Fox Channel sa Cignal... nagawa ngang mai merge ni MVP ang TV5 at GMA7. daming pera ni MVP at willing sya magpakawala ng pera maiangat lang ang TV5 pati ang Cignal...

At isa pang pinagmamalaki ng GMA 7 no 1 daw sa mga local news channel ang GMA news laban sa aksyon tv at anc. sana isama na nila ang ANC sa lahat ng skycable package. para magkaalaman na di ba???? Dapat di tayo natutulog sa pansitan baka isang araw magulat nalang tayo bagsak na pala tayo..

For starters sana they can remove the additional charge of 250 per month per addtl box. Sana installation fee lang. :D If gonna upgrade to hd, konting addtl nalang. :D ;D

Same here, one of the reasons why I got the digibox was the Revo +ESPN. But since they did not notify me of this change I am filling a complaint and they can either return ESPN or return my money back.  If they will NOT do any of the two, I am filling a complaint at DTI.

Got the same sentiment with that move of Sky Cable to take out ESPN HD from the Revo package.  Why would they arbitrarily take out a channel from their package when it's part of the deal?

marami na kasi nag avail ng promo na 299 free na hd box.. ika nga tinakam lang tayo.. ngyon naka 299 na kayo para ma obliga kayo mag upgrade ng 899 or 1199.. kung di lang naka locked in period ng 1 years pina cut kuna to.. at nag avail nalang ng cignal. isipin nyo promo ng cignal initial cash out 1 month advance lang free installation, free cignal kit, free 3 months pa, sayang na pagkakataon di ba????? kung ako sa inyo pagtsagaan nyo na yang 299 wag na kau mag upgrade or i avail nyo nalang 590 ng cignal mag dual cable kau andun na ang HBO HD at NBA HD.. my fOx filipino pa kayo.
Maka SkyCable ako dahil Kapamilya ako pero sa binawasan pa nila ng HD Channel na ESPN masyado nman na di ba guys. para sa mga gusto mag upgrade mag isip isip muna..
Suggestion ko
Isipin nyo kung naka 499 ako plus 299HD = 798 at naisipan ko i upgrade ng 499 plus 899 HD = 1398 magiging monthly bill ko (600 ang nadagdag).. ang tanging madadagdag lang dito ay HBO HD, DiscoveryHD, HistoryHD, NBAHD at ESPN HD  mula sa current SD and HD Channel nyo na
Dahil naka may 1 years locking period kau sa sky try nyo another option naka 499 at 299HD kayo sa Sky.. Mag dual Cable kau habang naka locked pa ng 1 year keysa mag upgrade sa Sky..
499+299 (SD and HD Channel Sky) + 590 sa Cignal (Inital Cash Out 1590. only Free pa yung next 3 months) = 1388 lang magiging monthly nyo.. mura kumpara kung mag upgrade kau sa Sky..
Madadagdag sa Channel nyo???? sa SD Channel Madadagdagan kau ng Max Cinamax, ESPN News, PBO, Viva Channel, Fox Filipino, S beTV, Colours, plus HBO HD, NBA HD, Outdoor HD, at Star World HD (meron na nito sa sky). isip guys san kau makakamura at makakapili pa kau ng magandang cable.. sabi ng iba mas malinaw at mas maganda ang cignal.. kaya try nyo mag dual cable keysa mag upgrade...

Skycable's decision to cut-off ESPN HD from my package is just plain bad customer service.  I called them, sent messages through twitter and email but I'm tired of their excuses and ignoring a customer.  I just sent them this email:

"Since I'm not getting any response to this communication and the content I requested to be reinstated is not available, I have no further reason to subscribe to your services at this point.

This is a notification to indefinitely suspend my cable subscription with your company effective August 1, 2012."

Update mo kami with the complaint. nakakainis nga, 1 week pa lang Revo pack ko, nabawasan na ng ESPN HD channel.

I called up SKY yesterday and had to patiently wait for long periods just to be able to have a conversation with a manager or supervisor.  Off hand what I gathered was that they failed to inform subscribers regarding the change, with this they offered me one (1) month free subscription for the miscommunication.

With this offer I am still bent on filling a complaint with the DTI & NTC for the very reason that I was made to believe that the Revo+ESPN HD package was worth the investment in getting the digibox for 3,000 ( yes I paid for the box last year).  As a male viewer ESPN HD probably ranks #1 in the decision in getting the box, now they are again using ESPN HD to ask subscriber to "upgrade" their subscription.  This is clearly paying twice for the same product, hence the complaint to DTI/NTC.

DTI website suggests calling NTC for the complaint (9244942,  9244948, 9213251, 9267722) I hope you guys will join me so that Sky will be pressured to bring back ESPN HD to the Revo package.

Ganyan din ang package ko and since last week, activated yung HBO Hits HD so maybe it means na included na sa package natin ang HBO Hits HD and meron pa din akong ESPN HD so ibig sabihin included din yun sa package natin kaya I'm happy with Sky Cable.

I don't think that subscribers with Revo package only can't really complain about ESPN HD because as far as I know, ESPN HD is not included in the Revolution Package. When I subscribed to Sky's HD packages, it was clear to me that ESPN HD is not included in any particular package but it is free if you subscribe to any HD Package. I think they decided to not make it free anymore but to include it in a package wherein the Revo package is not one of them. Sky's mistake here is not to inform the subscribers that it will not be free anymore.

Oh but Sky cannot just unbundle the ESPN HD channel from the Revo pack because it was a big factor why I paid the 3,000 digibox fee in the first place.  So for as long as I continue to pay for the monthly fee that bundle has to be given to me.  I believe this is very doable since channel control to every subscriber is 1to1 , they are able to customize what one subscriber wants or has agreed to pay.

Just as I said before, technically Sky didn't really unbundled ESPN HD from Revo because it is not really bundled. ESPN HD is just a freebie to any HD subscriber. They just decided not to make it free anymore.

Not necessarily true. I have a HD media player myself and it is fun using it but the problem with that is the content. To have true HD content, you have to download a few gigabytes for just one movie and a gigabyte for an episode of TV series. You can settle to download a smaller file size movie or TV series but it is not really HD. So before you can watch, it takes time to download depending on your internet speed and you need an internet connection (a fast one at least) and it also consume hard disk space.

the only thing I really watch on TV nowadays is TLC (MvF, cake boss, bourdain etc) and Balls (UFC), kaya mas OK sakin Skycable. so downgraded to basic 280 plan, added TLC (20) and Revo (299) = 600 a month. solb na din. considering basic cable charges about 500 pesos monthly, diba. badtrip lang ako sa cable box ng sky, everytime mag turn on nag aask magscan ng channels, and every channel iba ang volume setting. sabi nung cable guy na pumunta ganun daw talaga yung mga bagong box, mas maganda daw yung lumang HD box kaso phase out na. nag aantay pa daw sila ng pamalit.

and tama, compared to downloaded HD movies, kahit 720p to 1080p, kapag less than 1GB file size e malayo difference sa HD ng sky. kita mo kaagad, walang pixels hehe...

This is a big negative for sky cable. I think Cignal is doing the "Gokongwei style" like what they did with Sun Cellular and Cebu Pacific. They are really making it more affordable and so they will be able to capture the bigger share of the market.

Now the ball is in sky cable's court. What will they do? Competition is getting fierce. Kahit mukhang dalawa lang sila nag lalaban. :D ;D

Ya iba pa rin ang cable tv. Cable have variety. Sports in hd is just awesome. Sarap to just come home, relax, take a shower and watch cable. :D Not all is bad naman sa sky. ;D. If you look at the overall exclusive channels they have (history hd, asn hd, uaap hd, ballstv, etc), its still very worth it for what we are paying, kahit mas mahal. Of course individual preference nalang yan on which channels one prefer. Pero sa sports ang dami ng sky cable ;).  Of course sana they can give us the olympics free. Hey we can't have everything. :D ;D

Kaya its great din meron competition.

ask mo rin kung available din yung free HD Box pag kumuha ka ng HD package. Lowest package is 299 for the revolution package consists of NatGeo,Sky Freeview,Fox Premium Movies,Fox Family Movies,Fox,Fox Crime at Star World. Biruin mo for just 579/month (280+299) may Analog ka na, may 20+Digital at 7 HD channels pa. Diba sulit!

Anybody using COSHIP box from Sky? I am having problems with my display. Paputol-putol po. Nawawala ang picture for about a second. It happens for all channels (STD/HD). Mataars naman po ang signal strength at quality. I am using Sony Bravia EX410 via HDMI. Pasig area.

May other brand ba ang Sky ng digibox?

I use the same and I don't have [problems naman.  Have you tried calling them up?  Dati kasi nagkaproblema ako sa isang channel and they just had me go through the set up phase.  naging ok naman.

Try checking the hdmi port of the tv with other devices. I had d same tv 42ex410, and sony service went to my house several times before actual firmware upgrade. My hdmi port after 4 month use wont accept any signal above 720p. First they blamed my generic hdmi cable (not cdrking) and recommended i purchase monster hdmi or equivalent. Later their tech guy isolated the hdmi port causing problems.

By the way sony has 2 year warranty, so might as well have it checked

Try mo muna yung RCA (Red,Yellow,White) if in case ganon pa rin ang output then yung digibox mo nga ang may problem. Meron silang isang ibang brand yung color black.

I tried po, wala problem. I tried playing another device, DVD, using the same hdmi port ng tv. Ok naman. Nagpalit na rin ako ng hdmi cable. Ang tagal ng response ng sky. I am using the white box.

finally dumating na ang technician with a new digibox, black. Wala na problem. Kailangan kulitin ang tech support.

Bale nangyari naging Power Pack siya + HBO Hits HD. Pero sa TV ko sa room that has the original Skycable HD subscription doesn't have those channels? Baka glitch?

Is it the white coship box? That was first installed to my samsung tv. Then we upgraded to a bigger bravia, ang dami naging problems.  First we thought it was thr hdmi cables, ayaw parin after mag palit. Then we called for a technician to check. Suspect was the signal, pero ok naman after checking. Next suspect was the hdmi port nung box, kasi paputol putol ang programs. Finally he gave up and promised to come up with a new box. He came back with a new box, yung black na. Plug and play lang ayos na. Kamot kami ng ulo lahat. Seems merong compatibility between the receivers and the tv. Just sSharing this experience we learned the hard way.

I answered her na since all in yung package, di ba we should expect to have all hd channels activated?

So sir, you mean nagkaron ng iRecord function yung HD box nyo after the upgrade? Does it mean you can record shows na using your HD box and then save sa HDD connected via USB? Pa-confirm naman sir, kse in that case it would be so awesome. I have an iRecord box (silver box) pero mabilis mapuno (320 gb capacity), so I plan to connect an HDD dun sa second tv na naka-black HD box. Paturo na rin sir ng steps kung pa'no kayo nagrecord sa HDD, hehe. Salamat!

Press <MENU> then go to <SETTINGS> then go to <TV SETTINGS> then choose from 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p. If you choose <AUTO>  the default is 1080i.

Because it's an older gen digibox.  Mine is color black or the new gen digibox.  The default of HD Digibox is 1080i talaga. And I don't think the difference will be noticeable ( 1080p, 1080i, 720p) if the HDTV is less than 50 inches.  Besides, are the shows on HD at 1080p?  I doubt it.  So kahit 1080p naka set, at hindi naman 1080p yun pinapalabas, ganun din.  I set mine at AUTO.

ako nagpa 2nd hd box about 4-5 months ago. plan ko is Sky Cable Gold with Revo Pack & NBA Premium HD. Gulat ako sa 2nd HD box up to now may Discovery HD, History HD, HBO HD, HBO Signature HD & ESPN HD when there shouldn't be. Ayoko nga itawag baka kasi mawala sayang naman. Yun lang nasa room ko yung original HD box na Revo lang & NBA HD. Gusto ko rin sana yung mga channels na included sana sa Innovation package so i called this morning & to my surprise ang included nalang daw sa Innovation was Discovery, History & HBO HD. Tama ba sabi sakin ng sales rep nila? Di ko lam if he meant na aside from the channels I have from revo, eto yung madadagdag, which is still lacking because before Innovation pack included ESPN & NBA. Kainis ang Sky, dami nilang ni-remove & made new "packages" na mahal na, di pa included ang ibang HD channels na gusto mo. ARGH!

currently on Revo pack + NBATV Premium HD since March 2012. Called up Sky today to upgrade to Power Pack so I can get the other channels & ESPN HD. The rep put me on hold for a few mins and when he came back told me I had to finish my 1 year lock-in period to my Revo Pack/NBATV Premium. Tama ba to? Sa pagkakaintindi ko before after like 2-3 mos I can upgrade. It's not like I'm cancelling or downgrading.

Second question, wala bang ala carte HD channels ang Sky?

Did you came from SD Box? then upgrade to an HD Box for free but need to subscribe in Revo Pack? if yes then you're in a 1 year lock in. What you can do now to get an ESPN is to add the sports pack.
You can cancel the Sports Pack or any additional HD channel as early as 1 month.
As far as I know, only NBA Premium & ASN is the only individual channel you can add. HTH.

Sa mga nagtransition from SD to HD digibox, free ba ito? ano na magiging subscription mo after upgrading? naka 280basic lang kasi ako + disney jr + ASN ngayon. Gusto ko sanang gawing HD ang ASN ko at pagdating ng March, papalitan ko ASN HD to NBA HD naman.

Last year, Yes free if you will subscribe to Revolution Pack 299 for 1yr. I don't know now if promo is still exist. After upgrading instead of getting ala carte, better add the Sports Pack 550 (ASN HD,NBA,ESPN,OutdoorHD). Thanks

meron ba sa inyo na may registered account sa http://www.mysky.com.ph ?

when i created an account there were two features that you can activate.

there were - Fox Movies Play and Online billing.

Question is - Is the fox movies free? or may additional charges yan if you activate it?

big wipeout of channels when the month started. they are getting aggressive in pushing for the digibox usage. this time there was no advisory on the channels that were taken off weeks before.

Quote
In Metro Manila, CAMANAVA, Rizal, Cavite and selected areas in Laguna and Bulacan, the first batch of channels transitioning to SKYcable’s digital platform for this year include MYX (ch.23), CNN (ch. 28), BeTV (ch. 35), National Geographic (ch.41), AXN (ch. 49), Star Movies (ch. 55), Lifestyle Network (ch.23) and Velvet (ch. 23), which will become inaccessible to subscribers without the SKYcable Digibox starting February 1.

Sorry if this has been asked before, thread is too long to back read entirely.

How does SD channels look on a full HD panel? I'm coming from Cignal, where some SD channels look ok, but BTV was dark and blur (specially game re-runs). Does BTV look better with Sky SD kaya?

From Cignal plan 1290, I'm thinking of Sky plan 499 plus ala-carte channels. Pero Baka mag-sisi ako na walang HD.

on an LCD TV, avoid having the 4:3 aspect as it will have the black marking on the sides which is not recommended in a long run. it might result to permanent marking on the panel. this is true not only to plasma tv's

Cheers for the info! Although I can't imagine those two channels just being available just for that *New* Package. Surly they will be ala carte too. If not there is gonna be some mad HD subscribers. Really it should be included in the ALL IN Pack...but like with Cinema Word and Sundance Channel, I'm sure they wont be. Sky really just needs to change the name of that HD package, or just charge more for it. Cause right now it feels like false advertising.

Speaking of new channels, our Digibox has a lot of reserved channels.
There are about 26 Reserved SD and 2 Reserved HD channels. Before it was 4 Reserved HD but it is now Syfy and Universal.

I think Sky will add channels from Destiny or is in the process of integrating Destiny's channels to their network. The 26 Reserved SD are mainly Destiny channels, I once saw, PBO, PinoyExtreme, GNN, GPC, ETTV Movies, CTS, Zee Cinema and more.

Di ko na tinake note lahat, basta napansin ko mga Destiny channels sya and most of them are the Chinese, Taiwanese and Indian channels of Destiny.

And pls lang skycable, I think you should change the name of the All in HD pack... Di naman kasi sya all in hd pack nga...

Starting from chanel 183 and up, di na sya included sa all in hd...

Still no word yet on when Syfy HD and Universal HD will be available to other HD subscribers including All In Pack subscribers. As of now it is only available in the Dual Def 999 package. Don't hold your breath though, I get the feeling it will be only offered via ala carte.

oo bro may installation fee kung hindi ka pa naka HD box, 1299 yun. lock-in ka for 1yr, pre-term 3k. i called them just now and requested for HD box upgrade on my 1st account with 15days trial. planning to get/add 299 revo pack (no lock-in) after trial period for my parents :). require sila ng letter/email for dualdef kasi may lock-in daw ito.

existing plan: select 280/month
upgrade option 1> dual def 499/999; 1299 installation fee one-time payment; 1yr lock; 3k for preterm
upgrade option 2> select 280 + any HD pack; 1499 installation fee one-time payment; at least 1 month lock-in for any HD pack (you can have it removed after 1 month then go back to select 280, naka HD box kana nito)

May existing HD Box ka na po ba (yung black) na may icon ng irecord? if yes, need nyo lang po eh external hard disk minimum of 320gb. Once you upgrade to dual def sabay nyo na rin po ipa activate yung irecord.

On the duration, I think as long as your plan was under dual def it's free since no additional fee is required for irecord if your using your existing HD Box(black). If in case may charge na then ipa deactivate yung irecord feature.

Yun po kasing irecord HDBox nila na may built it 320gb eh ang cost nya ay 3k installation plus 350/mo. for rental fee.

Need nyo po muna mag upgrade sa Dual Def, I think sa plan nyo ang pwede eh 999 kasi kung pag 499 ka downgrading yun.

Tanong nyo rin sa call center kung sino may hawak ng account nyo para mas maasikaso kayo. Tex tex lang pwede na kayong mag inquire. Siya na yung mag aactivate ng irecord mo. HTH

It may take a while before Sky can activate the iRecord function on your HD box.  Rest assured that we will work on the availability of this function within May-June. And when it happens, there is no need to swap HD boxes anymore since the iRecord feature will be activated remotely.

It may take a while before Sky can activate the iRecord function on your HD box.  Rest assured that we will work on the availability of this function within May-June. And when it happens, there is no need to swap HD boxes anymore since the iRecord feature will be activated remotely. You just need to have an external hard drive connected to your HD box to activate the iRecord functionality

Naka schedule po ako kanina for change ng HDBox na may irecord function, unfortunately walang idea yung installer re. irecord, akala nila for activation lang ng HDBox, ang dala kasi nilang HDBox eh same lang ng existing ko. So re schedule for next saturday, need pa raw nila iactivate yung irecord system sa mga on hand HDBox nila.

Ask ko lang po, dapat ba kong umasa na maactivate na yung irecord next week?
Thanks.

Kung yung HD Box po na black yung sinasabi po ninyo wala pong irecord capability yun pero yung software kasi nya is makikita mo yung irecord pero naka disable pa po yun kasi wala naman po yun internal hard drive. Ang irecord hdbox po ayun po yung color silver na meron ng hard drive sa loob na 320 gig.

Yes HDBox na black and i have an external hard drive so no need to get the silver HD Box.
Unfortunately di pa activated yung irecord ng black HDBox.
Hopefully by next week ma activate na.
BTW one of our fellow user here already activated his irecord on his black HDBox so I guess we will no longer wait by may or june.

Wala na daw extra na babayaran so 999 lang talaga monthly. Tapos yung waiting time hindi ko maintindihan kung bakit ganun ka tagal..... Di lang yung hdbox kung di pati yung dual def plan need ko antayin.

If i were the owner of sky cable, i would already have fired the marketing manager. If you take a look at their site, there's not even a side by side comparison of all their plans. You don't know what additional channels you get from subscribing to higher plans. My golly, even a high school student can do an html table!

Question po:
Yung TV kasi namin hindi pa LCD/LED flat ---> CRT Flatscreen lang...bibili pa lang within the year.

If currently, naka PLAN 280 ka, may magbabago ba sa resolution ng channel (mga SD channels) if ipapa-upgrade ko yung PLAN to DUAL-DEF 499 kasi mapapalitan na yung box ko from SD Digibox to HD Digibox or as is yung resolution/compression ng images?

Parang ganito:
SD Channel using SD Digibox (Plan 280)
SD Channel using HD Digibox (Dual Def 499)
Same quality or mag-iimprove?

Pwede pa rin mag-select ng additional channels e.g. Discovery at Animal Planet for 50 pesos if naka-dual def?

Thanks!

Ang gulo ng Sky. Tumawag ako to report wala paring iRecord feature yung black hdbox namin. Dapat meron kasi nakalagay sa promo ng Sky na may libreng iRecord feature kasama pag nag-avail ng Dual Def subscription. Tinanong ng CSR kung anong version ba ng box namin, sabi ko ay 2.2.2. Sabi nya for replacement na lang. Kahapon dumating yung taga-Sky at sinabi ko na walang iRecord feature yung hdbox namin. Sabi nya wala daw talagang iRecord yung box namin kasi hindi daw sya black, grey dapat sya. Kung gusto ng iRecord dapat palitan yung hdbox namin (iRecord box siguro yung tinutukoy nyang ipapalit kasi sinabi nya sa akin na iba daw ang itsura nung box sa hdbox namin). Sabi ko syempre gusto namin ng iRecord kasi kasama sya dapat sa package ng pagpalit namin ng subscription to Dual Def. Bumalik ulit yung taga-Sky kanina (pero ibang tao sa nakausap ko kahapon), akala ko papalitan na ang box namin sabay pareho lang ang ginawa nung dumating sa kahapon. Tiningnan lang ang box at sinabi na kung gusto namin ng iRecord, dapat daw mag-request ng panibagong box. Sinabi ko ulit ang reason ko na gusto nga namin ng iRecord kasi nga kasama sya sa Dual Def subscription namin.

Ang gulo ng Sky. Parang yung mga technician pa nila ang walang alam tungkol sa hdbox nila, at sa mga promos ng Sky.

I am also subscribed to their All-In HD pack (all HD from channels 164 to 182) but since last week I'm on a 1-month free trial period for 6 additional HD channels (183 to 188) that Sky intends to charge an additional Php 700 for.  No brainer sana as in NO WAY except that ang ganda nung isang channel - 184 Cinema World - puro foreign language films with English subtitles.  During the long weekend, I watched a variety of exceptional movies from countries like France, Russia, Chile, Belgium, Colombia, Spain etc.  It's like a new world of cinema was opened for me and its all good.

But c'mon Sky - "All-In" should count for something.

nagbayad ako P1,999 for dual def package plan P999. wala pa atang free installation promo  8)  :P  O0

i already have sky broadband unli plan P999 speed 1mbps way back 2010. kaya after installation ng sky cable ko called them up for a free upgrade to 1.5mbps.

matagal na kami sa sky broadband na bibihira lang masira ang connection namin. siguro mga 2-3 times lang ako tumawag sa csr nila at yung isa duon may maintenance issue pa.

in my observation sa hd channels ng sky is two thumbs up walang pagsisi whatsoever  (madami akong mga hd movies at  hd tv series ranging to 720p to 1080p). pagnanunuod nga si boss ng food network hd nakakagutom kasi sa quality yum yum yum  ;D  :D

Kaso 2 ch PCM lang output sakin kahit naka-direcho na yung HDMI sa AV receiver.  :( Ayaw mag Dolby Digital. Di ko pa na-try SPDIF. Parang iba itsura ng optical port nila dun sa receiver and TV ko.

Pero ang linaw nga ng HD channels :D. Naka-Dobly PL II yung AVR ko para gumana surround. Saya manood ng movies! ;D

I'll start with a rant on Skycable and follow with a question next.

I currently live in a condo and initially contacted Skycable to have them install the Dual Def 999 package. They told me that they would send someone to install two saturdays ago. They didn't show even if I followed up three times throughout the day with the agents only giving me the runaround and the assurance that the installer will show up. They didn't even bother to call me up that they would be unable to. They just told me to wait since their installers can show up even at 7pm. I've wasted my whole day waiting for the [email protected] installer to show up. So i called them up again to schedule the installation this saturday and they cannot give me the assurance that someone would show up and they said it's been scheduled this saturday and they'll install it between 9am-5pm. I don't want to waste a whole day again waiting for nothing.

They called me up today to inform me that they found out my condo is only capable of analog and i cannot avail of the Dual Def 999 package and that the skycable package available for my building is only the gold package and i can't avail of anything else. Is this true? My condo is a condotel (condo / hotel) located in makati.

SkyCable will soon have 30 HD Channels!

While viewing SkyCable's new Duel-Def promo I noticed that they soon will be offering 30 HD channels. Some of the new channels coming seem to be Comedy Central HD, MTV Live HD, Nat Geo Wild HD, Nat Geo Adventure HD, Channel M HD, and one more HD channel I can't make out the logo of.


As per lakay77's post magiging available daw tong 30 HD channels sa Dual Def 1799 this April ;D. 19 nga lang SD channels (non-issue naman sakin  ;))

Ako din, excited dito. Per checking sa channel line-ups nila, 19 yung local channels. Yun na kaya yung 19 SD channels? Gusto ko pa naman sana ng Star Movies  :'( (SD nga lang at available at the moment).

I'm also seeing those new scrambled channels (mostly from Global Destiny) > nasa ch 200+.

I think hindi pa kasama dyan sa bilang na yan  ung mga local channels... So literally it will be more than 19 sd channels... probably like cinema one, hbo etc...  kasi I counted the sd channel nung dual def 499, they say na 30 sd channels pero hindi kasama dun sa bilang na yun ung mga local channels... :)

guys what is the normal Signal Quality of SkyCable Dual Def.
I am getting 69-70% (strength is 68%) both SD and HD channels which causes pixelation when there are fast moving things on screen.

Does anyone know if Sky Dual Def has 5.1 audio? Or stereo only?

Post by: chongklc on May 14, 2013 at 01:17 PM
Some quick questions for those who have used the irecord functionality of Sky Cable's Dual Def Plan (using the new black HD Box and external storage):

1) What is the file format out the output file? I read in an earlier post that it is mpeg2.ts.  Can someone confirm this?

2) Is the output file (saved TV show) saved in the external drive?

3) Can you use this file and view it using other media players (i.e. WDTV Live)? Or is this only viewable using the Sky Cable Digibox?

4) If only viewable using the digibox, does anyone know of a software program that can convert this to another file format and make it viewable using other media players?

The reason I ask is that I have a brother who works abroad and is a big UAAP fan, I used to record the games using my Sansui DVD-R, I then send these to him so that he can watch it, however, it recently died on me and I'm thinking of getting a new one (having a hard time deciding what to buy), if irecord has this functionality, this could save me some money :)

Thanks in advance.

.ts yung file niya at naka save sa hard drive pero hindi yata siya pwedeng i transfer sa pc. Sinubukan ko rin maghanap ng software na .ts to mp4,avi etc. ayaw parin niya. Baka sa digibox lang talaga siya pwedeng panuorin and it sux :(

meron ba rf out ang Sky HD STB? kasi mas maganda gamitin ang default tuner sa modern tv ngayon kasi mas maganda ang interface nila den it has smart features such as S recommendations where your tv would suggest some recommendations based on your preferrence or your viewing habit.

Thanks sir for the quick response, you are right, it sucks :(  Most probably, Skycable included its own encryption in the output file to make it only viewable using the digibox, haaay! Back to looking for a PVR then.

Thanks again.

Hello PDVD, can anybody confirm if your signal quality is affected during peak hours?
would like to verify if this is based on a particular area only.

the scenario is: signal quality is @ 60-70 during day time... then it goes down to 30-40 prime time. resulting to degraded pixelated viewing on such occasion.

Btw, this applies to those in dual def.

just checking... thanks!

I'm on dual def 499 and my HD channels deteriorate especially from 6 - 9 pm.  The most frustrating thing is that Fox SPorts Plus which is the main reason why i subscribed to HD is the most affected followed by CNN and Star World. HBO is the least affected. I have reported this about 2 weeks ago but not yet solved (and still waiting for follow-up visit). I've been calling 381-0000 almost every other day.   

Location is at Antipolo (along Marcos Hiway area). Is this a low signal area?  Anyone here with similar issues?

FYI. Problem solved.  The technician came last week and replaced their main cable line from the nearby electric post to the splitter inside our house.  Looks like the culprit is the main line which was not a continuous line (it was too short, so another line was added via a connector before the splitter).  For those who are interested, here are the measurements taken before and after:

main line = 15 dB
after splitter = 2 dB (before); 11 dB (after)
main TV = -2 dB (before); 8 dB (after)
    signal quality from 58% (before) to 74% (after)

Sino na nakalipat from 499+18 HD Pack to Dual Def Titanium Pack?  Parang gusto ko lumipat kaso hindi ko alam kung ano pa ang mga SD channels na kasama.  Yung nasa skycable website kasi mga must-carry local SD channels lang ang nakalagay.

Guys nakalipat ako from 499 + 18 HD Pack to Dual-Def Titanium. Walang pre-termination. ;D Kelangan lang ata silang kulitin (naka-ilang tawag din ako). Hanap na lang kaso bisor kung ayaw talaga  ;)

My latest bill just arrived and P1799 lang talaga (walang pre-term fees), up from P1698.

Local channels lang talaga ata SD channels na kasama (Myx lang nadagdag). Ang ginawa ko, nagkabit ako ng coax from RF-out nung Digibox papunta sa RF-in ng TV. Kuha ko na yung ibang SD channels like Cinema One, Balls, etc. and malinaw pa din sya - para lang naka-digibox lang din.  :D

it is not recommended to place another electronic device to a heat source that can double up the operating temperature of such device. better move it away from the STB.

Yes pwede. Tried it before but you won't be getting all the channels kasi most of the channels require the digibox due to encryption.

Guys, i just tried the iRecord feature of Sky HD. Sobrang ok. You can record your shows and schedule them just like we used to do during the Betamax days. All you need to do is attach a USB drive and press Record on the remote!

I think Sky should market this feature more. It's a significant advantage against Cignal.
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: TheSaxMan on Jun 30, 2013 at 08:17 PM
The problem with the irecord is that it defeats the purpose of watching a show that you can't watch because you're watching a show from another channel because of the limited channel surfing
Title: Re: SkyCable HD

Oo nga. But at least you can record shows when you're not home. Also it can do time shifting.

Tinuruan ko na lang sila pano mag-switch between TV & HDMI kasi napipickup pa naman ng TV yung ibang cable channels gaya ng Cinema One (nung kinabit ko sa RF-Out ng box) at malinaw naman signal basta naka-on yung box. Okay na ako sa setup na to kasi di naman ako nanonood nung ibang SD channels. Hassle nga lang dun sa mga gusto manood ng Cinema One. hehehe  ;D

Skycable called me today.  Since Dual Def 999 + NBA Premium ako, they offered if I wanted to temporarily replace my NBA Premium channel with the 3 premium HBO channels, habang off-season raw ang NBA.  Then once NBA season begins, puwede ko na raw ibalik.

I did not avail of the offer, but I salute Sky for the value added service they offer subscribers.  I'm so not missing my old HD provider.  :)

Yung Plan280 is using SD cable box at available add-on nya is Sky Select.

OO pede yan ... ganyan plan ko ngayon, with free HD box yung promo nila dati ... backread ka lang for more info.

I can't avail of the Dual Def 999. stuck with Skycable Gold but without the channels that are only available by the digibox. I feel so robbed about it.

Hi fellow skycable users.

We had DualDef 999 installed last Saturday but CNN HD and Food Network HD can't be captured yet due to poor signal output. Does anyone experience same? Technical team is still fixing the issue.

Are you satisfied with Dual Def999? Would you subscribe back to Cignal if there was no pre-term charge?

I have 32 LCD and another 1 projector with 51 Plasma on the opposite side (around 20 m). Both outlets were provided with terminals so I could hook the HD Box anytime. I'm using 32 LCD now most of the time and plans to get Cignal on the opposite outlet for the Projector and 51 Plasma.

Would appreciate input.  :)

My answers would be YES, and NEVER.

Even if Dual Def 999 wasn't very good, I'll still not return to Cignal due to (in my opinion) unethical business practice.  I won't post them here, since I've already ranted on the Cignal thread.

With SkyCable, I suspect some of their channels are picked up via Satellite.  Wired CATV should be immune to rain fade, but sometimes when it rains hard in the metro, yung mismong Sky feed ang nawawala.  Happens to some channels lang naman, not all.  So makes me think those channels are sourced via Satellite.

I'll try to check closer, but the digibox can be set to output 1080p.  So if the source is actually upscaled 720i, then I couldn't tell (lucky for me).

Clarity wise, Cignal was clearer, under ideal conditions.  But I hated rain fade, which compromised my Cignal viewing.  That in itself was a big factor going SkyCable's way.  Clarity advantage of Cignal was not overwhelming.

You've seen my rant on the other thread regarding Cignal.  It's corporate, not territorial issue.

Magandang umaga mga sir/mam,

so now you are just paying 499 but you have 2 tvs on dual def?
so yung 3k+ is paid once tapos wala ng additional sa monthly fees mo?
correct me sir kung mali ang intindi ko.

thanks sir..

499 + 250 ( 2nd tv mnthly fee ) = 749 monthly ko.

i paid one time payment  250(?) for the second tv box ( SD box ) sabay during pag install.  HDbox one time payment ay nasa 3k(?) if im not mistaken. Since Mejo mahal ang HDbox, settle n lang ako sa extension na SDbox :-(

Ayaw ko naman pachange address yung 999 kasi bayad installation fee then bayad p installation fee para sa 499.

You don't know what you're talking about. Of course, pwede nya gawin un. Nasa STB (particularly yung smart card) ang plan subscription ng isang subscriber. Yung smart card ang nagbibigay ng info sa box kung anong mga channels ang pwede mong panoorin kya kung tutuusin kahit yung smart card lang ang pagpalitin mo pwede din. Yung signal kasi na nanggagaling sa linya ng cable, pareparehas lng sa isang area.

Yup just 20 SD channels, that's the rub with this plan.  No BBC, CNN, Nickelodeon and the like.

I have their Gold plan, plus their All-In HD pack, plus some "ala carte" HD channels (which weren't included in their "All In" HD pack - go figure), and some SD packs.  I'm paying like 3300 per month which is a preposterous amount to pay for friggin'  cable TV. 

This is why I am looking at their new packages to bring the monthly cost down without losing the "must have" channels.  They make it so damned complicated for us subscribers.

I'm currently subscribed to their Dual Def 1799 plus Kids Pack. For me di sulit yung mga nadagdag na channels from the All-In Pack. Might change my package once the 6-month lock-in period expires.

Left Speaker - Mono Left (left audio signal sent to both left and right speakers)

Right Speaker - Mono Right (right audio signal sent to both left and right speakers)

Mixed (Equalizer icon) - Mono Left+Right (left+right signals are mixed, then same (mixed) signal is sent to both left and right speakers)

Left + Right Speaker - Stereo

*** Pag naka-5.1 setup mo (or any setup with a center speaker like 3.1, 7.1, etc.), pwedeng nasa center lang ang tunog pag mono ang input (mono left, mono right and mixed)***

Sky will now have 42 HD channels by Oct. 15.


Good move by Sky. Any info if there will be additional fees to access said HD channels? I'm currently subscribed to their Dual Def Titanium package.

Anyhow, has anybody tried to successfully play recorded videos by the digibox but not on digibox?

I tried to hook up an external hdisk to the box and recorded a short segment of a show, it plays fine on the digibox but when I hooked up the hdisk to my pc, missing codecs daw. Tried VLC, Media player classic, media player, ayaw lahat unfortunately.

This is the same thing that happened to the All-In-Pack subscribers who were basically screwed with  the "All-In-But-Not-Really-All-In" package... THOSE WHO ARE ACTUALLY PAYING MORE ARE THE ONES THAT GOT SCREWED...It seems that we need to add 200 pesos more to get these new HD channels... 1799 package  to get all of their HD channels (before Oct. 15)  and now they are adding 1999 package to get the new HD channels?? WTF Whats next? A 2100 package if they have more HD channels and so on and so forth??
Get your acts together Sky...

PS
I mean, is it too much to ask if Sky Cable will just add a couple more new HD channels for us Titanium subscribers  considering we availed of the "a bit more expensive" package? I'm not asking for all of the new HD channels, just a couple...

Yes I agree with you, dapat for the amount we are paying, the should give us these channels in our package. I'm paying almost 3000 a month on my cable, which is almost ridiculous. I'm already looking at what I can do to lessen my monthly bill. My breakdown,

Silver 830
All in hd 1199
2 boxes 500
Chinese 150 ata.

I'm looking at removing the silver package, but I really need the news channels like bloomberg, cnbc, bbc etc.

hi folks, ask ko lang if anyone has experienced this on their HD box. I currently have a dual def 499 plan so syempre, I don't have all the channels available. So what I did was to delete the other channels that I don't have so I don't have to keep passing through those channels when I'm browsing channels looking for something to watch.

Kaso ang problema, the channels that I've already deleted keep coming back the next day. I have 2 sky boxes, one is SD the other one is HD. I've had the SD box for a couple of years now, never naman bumalik yung channels once I delete them. For the HD box, bumabalik lagi kahit ano gawin ko. I even reported this to Sky and they exchanged the HD box for another one but ganon pa rin.

Does anyone have the same experience on their HD boxes? I'm thinking of cancelling my subscription because of this, but may lock-in period of 3 years for dual def plans according to sky which I have to pay php3k daw if I want to cancel my subscription.

oreoshake - favorites is an option, but I think the HD box has a firmware issue because the SD box isn't recovering deleted channels on it's own. Otherwise, the "delete" function shouldn't be on the remote at all if it doesn't work properly.

I'm very pleased with the addition of History HD and Bio HD to the Dual Def 999 plan.  Yung dati, sulit na yung History SD kasi I love watching Pickers, Kings or Restoration, Pawn Stars.  Last weekend, nagsawa ako dun sa Storage Wars marathon sa Bio HD.

Kay esmi naman tuwang tuwa siya sa Warner TV HD, Travel HD, and Lifestyle HD.  Crime and Investigation HD na lang ang gusto niya.  Available kaya for add-on siya?  Dati  yung SD kasi P20 per month as add-on.  I've not tried calling their Customer Care Hotline yet...

I've had the SD box for a couple of years now, never naman bumalik yung channels once I delete them. For the HD box, bumabalik lagi kahit ano gawin ko. I even reported this to Sky and they exchanged the HD box for another one but ganon pa rin.

Does anyone have the same experience on their HD boxes? I'm thinking of cancelling my subscription because of this, but may lock-in period of 3 years for dual def plans according to sky which I have to pay php3k daw if I want to cancel my subscription.


I'm under Dual Def 499 plan as well and I don't have the same experience with deleted channels. What I've deleted stayed deleted naman. I don't unplug my HD box, could it be the reason? Do you unplug your HD box?

I applied for dual def today, unfortunately audit pa daw bago makabitan.

When I gave the rep our address, meron na daw kasi subscriber with the same address as ours.

Medyo magulo kasi numbering ng maliit na street namin and our apartments has numbers din...

Gano kaya katagal process? May pupunta daw engineering something to check the area... pero the rep can't give exact date and time..

Baka lang some of you has the same experience... paano naging process at gaano katagal?

TY

Kapag converting from silver plan to dual def 999 magkano magiging fee?

You pay only the installation fee of P350 - I also just upgraded from Silver to dual def 999 last month. But there's a 1 year lock up period for the HD set top box to be free. I also had 1 additional HD set top box 2 weeks after, for my son's room, again, only paid the installation fee of P350, but additional P250 each month, lock up for 18 months. Realized now how poor Sky Cable's marketing is in not communicating more clearly and broadly how easy and cheap it is to convert to dual def!

Hi, you don't need to go to a branch to avail PPV. You just need to call Sky. And when you do, make sure you call them from your home, they will ask you some info printed at the back of your HD box. They will also ask you to change the channel to 195 and you need to confirm once you see something is shown.

The last time i availed a ppv from them i pay the subscription fee and fill up a form on their office. Well, it's just a few steps lang naman from our home to their office here in laguna. So i can drop by naman.

Got a text from them last Friday.. They currently have this promo valid till November 1st.. P499 (HD). November 2nd onwards, P999 na.

^ No, it's a different plan from Silver or Gold plans. In my case, when I applied for Dual Def, my Gold plan was terminated.

Sir, ang plan ko talaga was Gold plus P1999 na Dual Def.. Since hindi pwede, meron bang iba na way para makakuha pa din ako ng SD channels ng Gold? How about through Select? Tyia
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: qwerty765 on Oct 28, 2013 at 10:47 PM
^ yes, through select. In my case, when I changed my plan from Gold to Dual Def 499, we added Disney Jr., Nick Jr., and History Channel. All SD channels.

However, Sky recently added History HD, so we called to cancel History SD. But according to Sky, no need na daw since History SD has become a regular channel line-up for Dual Def.

Which channels from Gold do you like added? There are several plans in Dual Def, you may want to check their respective channel line-ups.

Well for me, BTV (not available for Select) and Star Movies.. For everybody else in the household, PBO, Cinema One (Also not available for Select), Disney JR, ANC, Teleradyo etc.. Madmi Sir e.. And the only way to satisfy my HD cravings without getting any complaints from them would be to just stick w/the Gold plan on top of the Dual Def plan.hehe

^ I think the best question here is, when they say November 23, is this Macau time or US (PT/ET etc.) time? Obviously, Top Rank's main market will still be in the US so Saturday night, Macau time may not generate more ppv buys stateside.. So for now, basing from what I have read so far, schedule will still be, 8am onwards on Sunday, Nov. 24.

As for the exact main event time, i'll put my money around 1130am Manila time. ;D

the exact measurement? i can check when i get home later. anything i should specifically look for?


anyway to answer my previous post for those who might be concerned in the future,
yes once irecord is activated, on the usb slot depending on which type of box, you will be needing a storage drive/stick to save videos. sky suggested 320gbs, assuming bec they are hd vids.

seen cignal hd once in a resto, with sky so far browsed hbo hd and josh brolin's forehead seemed wrinkled. reporters on beIN definitely looked pissed. patches on the field were obvious. either i have bad eye sight or my display is limited, id say not bad sky. was surprised with mib 3 knowing it was from a cable box.

@pao @ peeves

wala naman daw basta naka dual def , may binanggit sila kung anong klaseng box meron ako, kung black daw ba? kung black, basta may usb slot sa harap yun sa kaliwa sa harap, pull down ninyo tapos nandun yung slot.

as per sky:

1 hour HD Video 3.7gb
1 hour SD Video 2.3gb

they recommend at least 320gb of hard drive for recording. i mentioned i might use my 30gb usb stick, sky replied 'technically is is able but if problems are encountered, sky will not be liable. :)

anyone care to share thier experience

from their website RTL-CBS is clearly available for both sd ch 53 and hd ch 196 broadcast.

Used to have P280 package ( now P299 na ito ) SD then I requested for NBA HD ( additional P350 ).  The promo then ( last year ) was 50% off for installation of HD Digibox so I paid P1,500.  Mura na yun P1,299 i guess.  Then I requested for an upgrade to P499 dual def + the NBA HD + P50 Nickolodeon kasi wala sya sa P499 package.

mautak yung sky kasi alam nila marami may gusto ng NBA premium. hehe. i think 350 is too much for one channel. eh sa cignal kasama na yung nba premium HD sa 590 plan nila.

just got my hd box installed. nilagyan ng installer ng isolator dun sa cable then after a few minutes biglang nawala yung ibang channels then pangit signal ng channels, then tinanggal ko yung isolator biglang ok na lahat then mas tumaas yung signal strength.

para san ba yung isolator na yun? hehe

Tanong lang mga master. Mas ok ba yun quality ng SD channels pag naka-HD digibox since hdmi cable na gagamitin? Naka-plan 299 ako ngayon sa kanila at yun resolution ng SD is 480i. 2 kausap ko sa skycable kanina pero magkaiba ng sagot, yun isa same 480i ng SD channels yun isa mas gaganda daw kasi naka-hdmi na. Need to know kasi hehe. TIA

Maybe you are referring to the lightning arrestor sir.  I had my HD box replaced ( defective HDMI port ) and yun pinalit nila kahapon may kasama na ganito ( sorry ha madilim hehe )

Meron na ganyan lahat ngayon para di masira due to lightning.  Yun ang nangyari sa akin last time, kumidlat tapos nasira TV ko at HD box dahil dumaan sa cable at HDMI. 

Baka maluwag lang.  Shouldn't be a problem with yours.

I would think there will be improvement on the HD one. Dati nag experiment ako sa DVD player. Using the same DVD source, I tested both composite video out and component video out. Mas malinaw pa rin ang component video lalo na pag text. I would think the same for composite vs. HDMI.

Or maybe you can ask redram, who has both HD and SD boxes.

No, dahil kung titignan mo yung info sa box, MPEG2 lang yung audio which means stereo sound lang ang pinoproduce nung box.

Dual Def 499 - gets you all the best SD + HD channels. Then you can add NBA HD (+P350).

I regretted I took the Dual Def 999, the additional HD channels on top of the 499 were not worth it and no NBA HD. I should have gone 499 + NBA. Hope you learn from my mistake.

Haven't tried Cignal yet but SkyCable HD has a lot more channels and upcoming channels to choose from. So far satisfied with my SkyCable subscription. Downgraded from Titanium HD to Dual Def 999 + Kids Pack 2 and some select HD channels. Best package so far for me.  ^-^

By the way, free installation ba?

Cignal is OK naman basta wag lang bumabagyo at umuulan ng malakas.  Since it's a satellite dish, it experiences NO SIGNAL during bad weather.  That's the complaint of my sister who recently switched to Cignal.  I'm happy with my Sky Cable dual def P499 package + NBA Premium HD + MTV Live Asia HD + Nickolodeon SD for kids.  Less than P1K a month.

Currently satisfied with the dual def 499 (bundled with internet, plus free phone service). Added Disney Junior for my son, Food Network HD for my wife. I've got all things covered. baka sa Playoffs na ako mag-lagay ng NBA HD since current schedule does not permit to watch live games. I had to shell out 2k for the installation of the bundle.

i have dual def 499 at home, then sa office namin naka Cignal. i just noticed na mas malinaw yung channels ng sky either its HD/SD or baka di lang calibrated mabuti yung tv sa office. hehe.

Paano ba pwede gawin dito mga sir?

Currently yung digibox is nasa second floor, need ilipat sa ground floor. Di aabot yung cable pag nilipat.

Paano ba gawan ng extension yung cable? or should I call sky and let them do it?

I'm afraid it would cost a lot kung sila gagawa?

Sukatin mo kung gano kahaba yung cable na gagamitin mo.  (Palagyan mo na ng dulo, sorry hindi ko alam yung term)
Bili ka ng coax cable coupler (di ko alam kung eto nga ang tawag. Pero tiningnan ko sa google at yun naman yung nakita kong pic)
Basically yung coupler will enable you to connect  cable. 

Hope this helps boss. :)

got it. almost a year ko ng nirereklamo pero wala pa ring nagagawa. lagi na lang pinapa scan wala ring nangyayari. pag punta pa nga installer dito takang taka pa bakit walang channel 9(jeepney Tv) at yung channels ko from 178 jump to 185 kaya di makita yung cnn HD(181). request ko na palitan na lang ng ibang channels pero ayaw pumayag. mukhang malaki laking ayusan ang gagawin kasi mukhang buong sucat ang affected.
btw since new installed ka pwedeng kang mag request ng 15 days trial para sa lahat ng HD channles.

By the way, free installation ba?

Sorry for the late reply.  New installation of HD had installation fee, pero kung upgrade, free naman daw.

What I did was initially had SkyCable Silver installed (SD boxes) for 1 month, then upgraded to DualDef.  2-step process pero madali naman kausap ang Sky.  Minsan they need to be followed up on service schedule, pero generally forgiveable.
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: backdraft on Jan 28, 2014 at 08:19 PM
I don't think na free yung upgrade from SD to dual def HD. I recently upgraded from SD to dual def 499 and I was charged P1299 for the HD upgrade.

binalik mo ba sa Sky yung SD Box? nag upgrade ka ba after a month? if yes dapat ibalik yung 1299 mo
Title: Re: SkyCable HD
Post by: backdraft on Jan 28, 2014 at 10:43 PM
Yes, I returned the SD box. I upgraded from to HD maybe after 5-6 months of having SD.

Sure kayo na free dapat ang upgrade? I have an extension pa na SD and hindi ko mapa-HD kasi nga another P1299 daw yun.

I paid for box upgrades back then, but installation per se was free.  Kasi nga naman naka-latag na ang cables, it was really just replacing the boxes to HD.  Pero promos vary through time.  Baka naka suwerte lang ako...  I had my installation when DualDef was initially released.

Yes, they charge 1299. I asked SkyCable about upgrading my extension box (currently SD) to HD box. They told me they have a promo wherein I don't have to pay 1299 but will have additional 250 monthly and lock-in period of 12mos yata.

Correct! Inaway ko na sila tungkol dyan. Strategy nila para mapagastos ka lalo. On top of HD40 plan, i had to get a basic plan just to retain DZMM Teleradyo.

try to negotiate with Sky. ask mo na rin kung sino naghahawak sa account mo para may nag aasikaso.
kung hindi man mabalik yung 1299 mo eh kahit ipalit na lang yung extension mo na SD to HD na free.

Post by: scifi-fan on Feb 06, 2014 at 12:06 PM
I just finished my 15 day trial of all the channels. Honestly I am relieved to just get the channels in the dual-def plan. Too many channels made me channel surf too much and I couldn't "commit" to watching any single program til it finished. I hope within a decade all the SD stuff will be HD already so no more procrastinating.

The syfy channel sucks. Only thing I would probably want to add is Nat Geo Wild (my youngest likes it) and for me Bio coz' I am in awe watching programs like Hoarders.

I've asked the same question sa CS ng sky some months ago..

May lock in period na 1 year. If wala pa 1 year and gusto mo pa-terminate, may 3,000 fee.

Now kung gusto mo lang palipat, bayad ka pa din ng 2,000.

I dont like the update. :(
It's just eye-candy, the games were gone, the time is gone when you press the Info button and switching HD channels is slower now compared to the original firmware.

Ang nakita ko lang advantage ng bagong update ng digibox ay sa pag gamit ng irecord, before kasi pag nag record tapos e play mo ung sound ay parang nagpuputol putol parang distorted, ngyn smooth na din ang sound pag play mo video; also the file size ay na reduce na pag nag record, before if i record a hd movie around 2 hrs parang mga around 15gb ang filesize nito, ngyn if i record mga around 6gb nalang ang size ng file

Napansin ko rin yung distorted sound sa old firmware, pero di ako gano gumagamit ng irecord. Kung lumiit na yung file size, baka tinaasan nila yung compression. Sana yung live feed, di affected, parang affected kasi yung HD channels. I kinda regret updating my HD box. As they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Mine got the s/w update this morning. While exploring the new UI, I noticed that the resolution default is 1080i, changed it to 1080p. I can't remember if the previous s/w level has 1080p resolution option, though. Is this new, or dati na may option na 1080p?

Yup, time is gone when Info button is pressed. But I like that you can already set the time on when you want the box to automatically turn on or off

Hi everyone. New member here. Napunta ako dito kasi nag search ako sa google about sa new digibox update ng skycable.

Ito yung mga nabago.

May mga bug sya sa program info or high lang mga taga SkyCable.

Katulad nito.

(http://imageshack.us/a/img716/2072/osvu.jpg)

Now, I figured mas maganda ang motion ng channels lalo na HD kapag naka 1080p. So ginawa ko sya na ganun. Kaya lang, kapag nag surf ka ng channel or basta nililipat-lipat mo eh nawawala yung ibang channels randomly.

For example, nawala ang TV5. Then GMA. Then Hero. Then Studio 23. Basta randomly sya nawawala. And ang local channels and SD channels kapag naka 1080p. Smooth ang motions nila pero pag mabilis ang pinapakita na movements ng isang show sluggish bigla. Pero parang naka 60fps ka then sluggish. Pero kapag nag 720p mode ka, para kang naka 60fps. Ang bilis. Smooth lahat. Kapag naka 1080i ka, parang film ang movement at texture. Parang 24fps. Pero pag nilipat mo sa HD channels, 1-2 seconds mag slow motion then okay na. Pero kapag naka 1080p or 720p ka, smooth lahat. Mas mabilis pa nga ata mag show ang channels kapag ganun eh.

I noticed this too, iba ang motion sa 1080i, AND nawawala nga TV5 at GMA7, some HD channels like Cinemax HD, nawawala rin.  SD channels mabilis maglipat pero sa HD mabagal.

Ang advantage ng update, mabilis ang boot-up, nice UI and working na ang pag change ng resolution but I would trade all of that for a 1080i resolution HD channels with 60fps and faster HD channel surfing. Oh, and my dad was looking for the Tetris game, lol. Games were gone too.

Yup, mas maganda sa 1080p or 720p. Yes even sa 1080i nawawala na din channels.

The default setting is 1080i. But 1080p is better.

I have a samsung led series 6 tv, I changed the settings from 1080i to 1080p, one thing that I notice right away is when I changed it to 1080p, nagkaroon agad ng ung tinatawag nilang "soap opera effect"..

Any suggestions what's the best setting to do?

Again, the default setting is 1080i even if you restore it to the factory setting it is 1080i. If you use it to the local channels (1080p), the motion that you will encounter is more of a film-like effect. For HD, it's smoother and the frame rate is faster.

also have same problem and someone said here in the thread that it's because of the voltage regulator attached to the digibox.  he suggested to remove this and just plug straight to cable. i havent done it.  ang pag explain kasi this device protects digibox from electrical surges particularly due to lightning.
