HD broadband refers to broadband TV packages that allow users to enjoy TV shows, movies and premier sports events in rich high definition – adding an exciting new dimension to in-home entertainment.
Because HD content is bandwidth-hungry, HD broadband packages usually provide customers with a super-fast connection which is capable of handling large amounts of data.
HD broadband is available from:
Sky's HD broadband service stands out for offering more channels than any other broadband provider. The packages also boast pictures with up to four times more detail than those on standard televisions and Dolby Digital 5.1 stereo sound.
To enjoy the service, customers must buy a Sky+ HD box. Channels on offer include Sky Movies HD, Sky Sports 1 HD and FX HD - that's the US broadcaster and home of quality drama such as The Wire and Generation Kill.
Virgin Media’s HD broadband service also includes Sky’s premium sports channels as well as a library of films, TV and live music to watch on demand. The broadband provider’s fibre optic broadband network delivers a connection speed of up to 152Mbps, which means that customers can download movies and TV shows on-demand in seconds.
Virgin Media offers a range of HD boxes to suit all pockets, including the VBox and Tivo boxes

**TalkTalk HD broadband
TalkTalk offers HD programming via the amazing YouView box. Like other set top boxes, it also lets you record, pause and rewind live TV and offers access to a trove of on-demand content.
Before you even consider a broadband HD package, you'll need to make sure you've got an HD-ready television with an HDMI socket.
BT, TalkTalk and Sky’s HD broadband services are available all over the UK - or rather anywhere that you can get a standard ADSL broadband connection. However, in order to get Virgin Media’s HD broadband service it is necessary to live in area covered by the company’s fibre optic network.
