All Sky Sports channels will only be shown in HD from October, the broadcaster has begun telling customers. And while it's yet to give full details of the changes, if you get full Sky Sports, aren't on a promo deal and don't currently watch in HD, your bill may rise by £24/year – even if your TV can only handle standard definition.

From 1 October, all Sky Sports channels will be broadcast in HD and will no longer be available in standard definition. As a result, the cost of the full Sky Sports package will increase by £2/month.

If you don't currently have HD and are out of contract (ie, not on a promo deal), you'll see your bill go up in October. If you are still in contract, you won't see any price change until your contract ends – though you'll still get to watch the sports channels in HD from 1 October.

Sky initially didn't give us full details of the shake-up, but it has now clarified that some customers could gain from the changes.This is because the price to get sports channels in HD at the moment is currently an extra £6/mth, and the broadcaster says that those paying this amount can get a £4/mth reduction, so they're paying the same as those that are being upgraded as part of the change.
