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.

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

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.

From past experience, the last Super Bowl I watched was on ESPN now Fox Sports. Hope it is shown in Fox Sport Plus HD for us dual def users.

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.

SkyCable doesn't respect and value their loyal customers.  Kung me iba lang service provider with same quality...

Binili na nila kasi ang competition, kaya wala na tayo choice.  Gusto ko dati yung service ng Suncable sa Antipolo area, then naging Skycable eventually.

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.
just keep us posted.

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.

Does anyone use the Samsung WatchON™ remote control application, and successfully configured it with the SkyCable HD Digibox?

Accessible na ba ang mga Destiny Cable channels sa Sky Cable?

I mean channels tulad ng FOX Filipino (Channel 211) as well as Channel V India (Channel 234)

Kaya nagdadalawang isip ako mag dual def.  Im on destiny din.  Madame channels, na kahit SD lang e naeenjoy naman.  Nagpipigil akong mag dual def kasi nga madame channels ang mawawala.

I'm quite satisfied with my Dual Def 499 subscription. I mostly watch the HD channels. History, Nat Geo, and Fox Sports Plus. I added Food Network for the wife and Disney Junior for my son. Although I do miss Discovery other channels would suffice.
