Sky has activated the new Sky+ HD electronic programme guide on another set of its fleet of high definition boxes.

38,000 customers with Thomson 4E300E Sky+ HD boxes were the first to get the new guide, which offers a new user interface and the ability to see detailed programme information without interrupting viewing, on March 10.

Today, it was activated on Thomson boxes with the version number 4E3007. According to members on the DS forums who posted as their boxes rebooted with the new software, the OS version is 1.32B12 with EPG version Sky+8.32.

Over 1m homes now take Sky+ HD.
