Okay lang bang gawing 447 yung frequency? Yung samin kasi hindi 447 yung default mga bandang 600+. Walang bang difference yun?

yup... ung 633 kse if you notice yung quality 0% kadalasan may mga channels na pixelated though HD channels are ok... according to the rep and technician, 447 yung bago nila frequency.

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.

Hindi pwede afaik. To avail the all in hd pack you should get the 499 plan.

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. :(

I reside in Mandaluyong, btw.

upgraded my HD subscription this morning & availed the "ALL IN PROMO" but downgraded my basic from GOLD to 499... i noticed nothing has changed in channel line-up even ANC w/c is not included in the 499 pack is still present (perhaps im always focused on my HD channels)  ;D
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.

now my monthly bill will be 500 pesos cheaper but more HD channels. :)
