SkyCable subscription should be carefully examined before a household gets a subscription. For example, SkyCable Dual Def 299 is not the original subscription we applied for, but in the span of at least two months, we noticed that we are not maximizing our subscription. We learned that we only watch local channels and a few high-definition (HD) channels.
We thought that we would be okay with SkyCable Dual Def 549 because it has lots of HD channels and watching it on a big LED TV would be just as awesome.
Two months later we were convinced that we only watch HBO HD and the rest are the standard definition (SD) channels.

SkyCable Dual Def 299 channels
One of the most affordable packages in the postpaid plan of SkyCable is the Dual Def 299. All local channels broadcasting in SD are available and there are 35 of them. There are eight (8) HD channels and if you like watching movies HBO HD is good enough.
Here is the list of SD channels under SkyCable Dual Def 299 plan:
|ABS-CBN Sports + Action||17|
|GMA News TV||24|
|Basketball TV (BTV)||33|

The SkyCable Dual Def 299 Channel line up is good enough for our consumption. The SD channels are clear, but the HD ones are really nice especially on a huge TV screen.
By the way, there is a one-time fee of P1,599 for this subscription. They will provide a digital box and gone are the days that you can split your cable and share into your other rooms.
