Sky Sports 1 and 2 go HD on BT TV

HD versions of Sky Sports 1 and 2 are now available to BT YouView users.

In a long-anticipated move, Sky Sports 1 and 2 HD are available on channels 437 and 438.

The full set of Sky's channels remain absent from BT TV, with no sign of the disputes between the two arch-rivals being resolved. Currently, the so-called "Wholesale Must Offer" rules apply to Sky Sports 1 and 2, rules that were first dictated by Ofcom in 2010.

Users of the first generation BT TV service, the former BT Vision (black box) service, won't be eligible for Sky Sports in HD. BT is slowly winding down the non-YouView element of its TV service.
