They are NOT included.
You will need to pay more and also for the HD receiver.
And also I hope that in future will be more better choice to get all Sky Italia channels - including HD channels, in abroad for good price.

Hi all im new to these forums...

I was thinking of purchasing Skyitialia Hd full package + the HD receiver a online website. It will cost 1500 pounds. (which is expensive).

My question is i live in the middle east - in Bahrain, Sky italia does work here. What i want to know is if i buy this package with its receiver will it work for sure? and what if i dont get the Hd reciever and only buy a card and i buy a seperate HD reciever eg. humax hd or etc.. will it work on it?

Forgive me if i've posted this in the wrong page.

Your help is very important to me.

Thanks All.

I think that it would be better for you if you buy the whole package (smartcard+Sky Italia HD receiver). This way you have only one contact person to blame if anything goes wrong.
Take into consideration the transportation charges in case of problems.
Add to the cost any taxes that you may have to pay when the package arrive.
Try to split the shipment so that you receive the precious smartcard in a separate envelope to avoid the chances of anything going wrong with the shipment (theft, for example).
And if possible get them to declare only the HD receiver cost and not the smartcard, as it is a service and not a harware.
What I mean is, if you sign up (theoratically) a five year contract, then the cost might be 5000 pounds and you would pay a lot of tax on this (at least in this country), while you should only pay for the plastic card which is about 10 pounds.
You might find a cheaper shop if you look harder.
If you ask me, it is not worth paying this much more than in Italy.
Check if this includes the Cinema option. I bet it isn't.

You are lucky then.
I have no idea who or what aramex is. If they are a courier, just make sure the package is well insured.
You can try to pay less for the order because you are entitled to VAT exemption, being outside the EU.

I gave up on this package last year because of the ridiculous cost. Now I find the Polish package Cyfra+ much better suited to my interests and pocket.
Look in the Cyfra+ section for more details.

I was able to find a French company that would sell it at 900 Euros full package, but without the HD channels !!
They said that the HD channels are not available outside Italy!! Is that true ?

I haven't heard anything about a card change, I certainly haven't received any new card.
From where did you hear that they were changing the cards??

The yellow UK cards will probably cease operating at the end of September / beginning of October.

No need to send them back - they will just stop operating when CAID 0961 stops being transmitted.

First you need to order a subscription, which is going to be very difficult because you don't live in Italy.
Second, if you manage to order a subscription, you would pay for a whole year in advance.

I know some shops sell pre-paid card with these options mondo+sport or mondo+sport+calcio.
I found one seller who offer me Sky Italia Full packages with HD channels - HD reciver and month payment with bank card (I dont know yet which card Visa or Master) with price like in Italy 69 euro every month for mondo+sport+calcio+cinema. Every month Sky Italia will withdraw money from card. Also He offer me that I can also get option channels - like milan, juve, inter..... and also Seria B for 99 euro.

Sounds fishy to me. Don't order unless you have full information about this seller and his full name and actual physical address.
Is he in Italy or another country?
But if he turns out to be legitimate, then many members might be interested.
My advise is to buy the prepaid card from the well known websites.
Good luck:)
