    Seems as Sky Sports HD channels have gone dark in areas
    but SD versions currently remain unaffected

    This is due to VM moving SS HD channels to only being available on Tivo/V6 boxes which operate without a smartcard

    please rest assured that this doesn’t mean that there is a fault with the server

    Information from VM can be read below

    as said SD still clearing, so that’s something. It hasn’t affected us in Ireland yet, but I can see 1850 caid & 1868 caid in some streams,so something is in offing, but while majority of VM boxes over here are cardless anyway, the multiroom ones come with a card, & afaik are still being sent out to subscribers, so a waiting game here too
