Originally Sky Digital launched with a set top box known as the Sky digibox, however, in more recent years the Sky+ and Sky HD boxes have launched alongside the original box. Sky+ is a digital video recorder with an internal hard drive which allows viewers to 'pause live television' (by switching from a live feed to a paused real-time recording that can be restarted at any point) and schedule programs to record in the future. Sky launched HDTV services in May 2006. The first photos of a prototype Sky HD receiver began appearing in magazines in August 2005. All Sky HD receivers incorporate a version of Sky Plus using a 300GB hard drive (of which 160GB is available to the user) to accommodate the necessary extra data.
Sky have hundreds of TV channels to offer you and it costs a great deal less than you think. From just £16 a month you can enjoy superfast broadband, free UK evening and weekend calls and over 300 TV channels of top quality entertainment.
