Sky News HD Interference by Craig Coope

HD deals? by Dee[_3_]
I've just bought a new 60" TV. We don't have Sky HD at the moment, just Sky Plus. Does anyone know if there are any deals around for upgrading to HD? Either cashback or vouchers or special offers or anything? I've had a search but my head is buzzing now! Thanks
