For a multitude of people, a Sky box makes an important addition to home entertainment. Sky’s pay television service can trace its roots to the 1990s, when it began to offer premium subscription channels over and above the usual programming.



In 1998, the company launched its first digital service, which required the use of the Sky box to gain access to a plethora of channels and entertainment that was not available in the normal formats. If you want a cost-effective way to gain access to premium entertainment, a Sky box may be the right choice for you.

About Sky Box

There have been various incarnations of the Sky box, since Sky began broadcasting in the UK in the late 1990s. Over the years, these have become more advanced and loaded with more features. Here are some of the things to look out for. Sky+ One of the greatest televisual innovations of all time, Sky+ enables users to record, pause and rewind broadcasts. In addition, it allows users to record all episodes of a particular series at the touch of a button. To access Sky+, users must have 2 separate coaxial cables connected to their dish, as well as a valid Sky+ package. Storage Many Sky boxes come with a built in hard drive for storing programmes. Depending on the model, this ranges from 250GB ? 2TB of storage. It's worth noting that if you plan to watch a lot of HD content, this takes up a lot of storage space, so invest in a box with as big a hard drive as you can afford. HD/3D Sky broadcasts selected channels in HD and 3D. However, to access this content, you will need to have a compatible television set and the relevant Sky package. On demand and catchup services Certain Sky boxes enable users to access a library of on demand and catch up services, which are streamed over the internet. To access this, you must have a valid Sky subscription and connect your Sky box to a wireless router. The latest versions of Sky boxes are equipped with built-in Wi-fi, which prevents users from having to connect to their router via an ethernet cable.
