Default Sky q and freesat

once everyone has Skyq, there will be no use for the SkyHD

Or am I missing something...

I don't think there are "Q" transponders and "HD" transponders, it's
just that a Q LNB/Box doesn't need to switch between four combinations
of high/low band and horz/vert polarisation.

The LNB has one output for the whole horz band and another for the whole
vert band.
