I really think they should aiming for HD now, its been a year and I think they need the extra push now that HD would give them.



This is from Boxnation's website FAQ:

Q: Is it available in HD?
A: Unfortunately it is not currently available in HD, but we are filming all our programming in HD, and we are now intending to launch an HD service in 2013.

I wonder how much extra Boxnation will charge for the HD service? If its a fiver extra then no problem I still consider it value, if they try 20 a month then it is no longer value, I pay nearly that for sky sports, when you add the way Frank matches his fighters and the poor shows he puts on, I wont pay it, not 20.

It'll be the same price.

If that's the case then great news. I am somewhat suspicious though, It's frank, I cant trust somebody that looks like a blowfish, It would be foolish too even try.

It hasn't been good in the last two weeks I've subscribed. The quality seems to vary as you watch, it can go from being acceptable, to like watching a moving Monet painting, and then back to ok again.

I used to subscribe to the Setanta online service, and the picture quality was much better than this. It went downhill when the switched to the crappy Silverlight player, but they went under shortly after that...

15 quid for Boxnation would be a scandal- I think allowing a channel not to charge for HD might be a sticking point for Sky. Boxnation have to recoup the money somehow.

If Boxnation did go HD I suspect you'd get fewer domestic cards to offset the cost of effectively running two channels.

If I spot any errors I will of course cancel immediately; I'll miss out on a lot of boxing but I can't let these people have an extra ten pounds.

Best just stick with Sky, they don't charge an extortionate monthly fee, they have never overcharged me and their customer service phoneline is superb..........
Oh really?

Both pay wizard and on the boxnation website. Really pissing me off. Thought I'd let some of you know. Most probably aren't having this trouble but it's is worth being warned

You can instruct your bank to stop the payments if they're being taken incorrectly. Also, send details of your cancellation notice to your local Consumer Direct office and ask the best way to reclaim your money.

Big fights should be on the BBC but Box Nation is a good channel. They have my support while they get the big fights.

I would be willing to increase to 15 a month for Boxnation, I'm more than happy with what I've got for my 120 over the past year abd think that the extra fiver would still be worth it.

However, I do have a limit and as much as I like it I would struggle to justify the expense if it was nearer 20.00.

On average you basically get 3 to 4 hours of live boxing and an hour of live Buncey each week for 2.50 (I think that is about a pint, but don't quote me on it), some weeks more and some less and regardless of whats on and whether it features specific fighters one follows I feel nobody can argue that it represents excellent value.

But when you start to increase this sum to nearer 5.00 a week (we'll call that a couple of pints) it is more important that the content features fights and fighters that appeal specifically, this is harder to to do EVERY week.
