^ None! Itatawag mo lang and they'll activate it in less than a minute. Will be charged on top of your bill. ;)

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 :)

I think replays, greatest games, rookie camp, and summer camps (which sucks btw),  so by mid june wala ng subscibers ang NBA premium  :).. that's why they have this 1 year promo ;)..

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.

I already have the HD box - may installation fee pa ba yun for the extra NbA premium channel or just the subscription fee?

 I don't watch WNBA, I'd rather have college hoops kaya lang halos kasabay din ng NBA.. ok sana kung meron NBA combine, in NFL they use it for draft prospects.. anyway, M still convincing my wife regarding this NBA premium in HD.. I bet on NBA games so this might help, hehe..

Corny nga ang WNBA. I doubt they'd even show Olympics or FIBA games during teh summer kaya sayang din yung content for that lull time.

Hey SkyCable subscribers, do you have issues with Fox News, Channel 112?
The screen is mis-aligned or not centered.

SkyCable will have it next year. Tomorrow SkyCable will have a press conference about the PVR service and hopefully more good stuff for 2011.

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

While we're waiting for the DVR to come out, what do you guys/girls plan on filling your DVR up with?  For me it'll most likely be Movies and European Football matches (due to the odd hours with the time difference) as well as travel/lifestyle shows from TLC and Asian Food Channel :D

I really want the PVR as well, although I heard it may cost around 10k+ to obtain one, you can get it through a lease option though, which means, a rental fee for the PVR will be added on your bill.
