From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

SKY HD is the brand name of the HDTV service launched by SKY Italia on 20 April 2006 in Italy - during 2006 FIFA World Cup - to enable high definition channels on SKY Italia to be viewed. The service requires the user to have a Skybox HD (distributed by SKY Italia), and a HDTV with HDCP enabled. A HD PVR decoder called MySKY HD was launched on 26 May 2008 (on 20 December 2008 was sold a particular edition designed by Fendi in favour of the international organisation Child Priority).
