Sky Deutschland will shortly begin its SD ( standard definition ) channel switch off.
As Germanys ‘first mover’ Sky wants all its channels in HD, certainly now would good timing as the HD tv market is saturated and would confirm its leading content provider role. All its subscribers will be updated free to the all HD platform and will see the following channels in HD:
DisneyDisney Junior, Beate-Uhse.TV,
National Geographic, Discovery Channel,
13th Street, Fox Series, TNT Series,
Syfy, NatGeo Wild, Spiegel Geschichte,
Sky 1, TNT Film, Disney Cinemagic and Sky Atlantic
Plus the addition of these popular channels to its base selection:
E!, Entertainment HD, Eurosport 1HD
History Channel HD, Sky Arts HD,
TNT Comedy and Universal HD
Cinema Customers will also have TNT film HD and Disney Cinemagic HD added again with no extra charge.
These channels are to be dropped: Sky Select HD, Blue Movie HD and Sky 1+1 HD, some of these channels content will be available via other channels or their ‘on demand’ video service.
Through November Sky will shuffle its programmes around, so if you are viewing on a Sky Deutschland Official receiver, the box will sort out the new channel list, if not ( r
eceiver with a cam and card ) then you will have to do the re sorting yourself, to avoid losing any channels.
There are more SD channels in Sky’s list and no-doubt these will be upgraded soon.
As far as we are aware no FTA German channels are affected.

For anyone considering Sky Germany , for their football provider (which is available in this country from several outlets ) be aware that the English commentary has now been dropped, so brush up on the Deutche meine football fans !
Sky Italia ( very popular in the Uk as a cheap alternative to sky Uk in the Pubs ) dropped the English commentaries some months ago, leaving fans with Italian or sometimes Radio 5 live commentary if it was available
Sky have also put the ‘non Sky’ boxes tuned to Sky Italia ,which had sprung up in the last 5 months , out of commission with a change of encryption, leaving publicans out of pocket and without pictures.
