Good for you! Just curios though, which channels in Gold plan do you watch that are not included in Dual Def 1799 plan?

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

Haha Nahilo din ako Sir.. Pero the text from Sky saying November 24, 8am onwards makes sense.. btw, I edited my previous post. Tingnan na lang natin opinion ng iba dito..

I'll also try to tweet some sports celeb about it to confirm first thing tomorrow.

^Mukhang may glitch sir. Kahit yung Destiny DigiBox ko na unlock lahat ng Sky channels. Pati HD channels nagkaroon ng audio pero walang video kasi hindi ako naka HD box.
I'm not complaining din, may NBA premium channel. Baka pag alis ni Yolanda wala na rin to.

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.

i'm not expecting near bluray quality since i know hd channels coming from cable providers are somewhat low bitrate. how does sky's hd compare to cignal's hd? i know sky has more hd channels that's the main reason i wanna migrate to sky.

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.

@pao9307 haha oo nga eh, may idea ka kung ilang mb o gb kada oras? 1 hr of hd video? ayoko gamitin external ko baka masira mga laman. mamaya subukan ko yung irecord puro tawag lang sa cs

@takussa14 - the way you described i think sky's hd is excellent, cignal's hd is kinda soft parang dvd na ina-upscaled. thanks sir...

Nakakainis sa bagong hd box sasabihin na kailangan magscan tapos may mga lalabas na noname000, noname00, etc.  Buti pa yung luma walang reminder na kailangan magscan at wala din mga noname channels na lumalabas.

for some reason,lumalabas yang reminder na yan when you go to the local channels,08 in my case.when you stick to the HD channels, wala namang prompt.
