    Has anybody in the UK tried out the new Sky Sports channels on the Apple TV? There is no indication that they are in HD, so I am assuming they aren't.

    I'm curious because Sky Sports F1 is the only reason I'm a Sky subscriber - if the quality of the F1 channel via the Apple TV is acceptable, I could actually ditch Sky altogether and use Freeview.

    Having used a Day Pass on a PS3, the channels broadcast are not the HD versions.

    The SD channels play absolutely fine on a high speed broadband line. I experienced no issues when viewing them through the PS3 application, so I am hoping for the same on the Apple TV!

    Just have to wait for a game to watch on the box which I'm not already going to to test it!

    Damn, I bought the NOW TV box for a tenner last week!

    One question I would have, on the NOW TV website you are limited to the number of devices you can use. I have several Apple TV's all tied to the same iTunes account, will I be use more than all of these devices without exception. I would assume yes....?
