About Skybox with Gift
Sky has been around since it launched in 1989, and today it is one of the largest pay for television broadcasters in the UK and Ireland, with over 10 million subscribers who can access hundreds of television, movie and radio channels.
Up until a few years ago, people who didn?t want to pay a monthly subscription for television with Sky or one of its competitors only had a limited choice of channels to watch. That all changed with the introduction of Freeview which can now give access to around fifty free channels. However this is still somewhat limited, as the number of channels available greatly depends on the area where you live.
For those who prefer even more choice, a Sky box is a satellite receiver designed to receive broadcasts from Astra satellites. It can therefore give you access to hundreds of Sky channels including sports, movies, lifestyle, comedy, documentaries and programmes for children. Additional channels can be added if required.
Sky boxes are relatively easy to install and it takes no more than a few minutes to do so. However, to use a Sky box, you will need to have a satellite dish installed in your home and also an active internet connection. Your Sky box can be updated automatically ensuring your box remains functional with the passage of time.
