About Sky HD Box

A new, used, or refurbished Sky HD box could be the answer to the dilemma of too many recordings and not enough space to store them. Sky+ offers several different storage options for your digital recording units. The standard Sky+ box offers 250 GB of storage, while the Sky+ High-Definition box can record and store 500 GB for you to 185 standard TV hours or 60 hours of HD/3D television programmes. The newer Sky+ boxes, available on eBay, are updated with in-built Wi-Fi as a standard, which makes your On Demand content easier to access and use. If the box you have has been around for a few years, it is probably capable of less storage in comparison to the newer boxes. If you consistently see storage space notices for under 20 per cent remaining, it may be a good idea to install a bigger hard drive in your Sky+ box. Once you have installed your new Sky HD box, you will be able to programme and record much more content, avoiding the loss of earlier recordings.
