How to purchase a HD-enabled device

There is a wide range of HD-enabled satellite devices available from many high-street retailers.

As well as giving you access to a range of HD channels (including BBC channels) some of these HD-enabled devices have extra features when they are connected to the internet, including on demand and catch-up services via apps such as BBC iPlayer and ITVX, as well as providing access to subscription video apps including Netflix and Prime Video.

You can upgrade to an HD device from as little as £69.99.
