About Sky Box Satellite Receiver
Whether you're after a standard Sky box satellite receiver that will enable you to access hundreds of sky channels, or the more advanced DVR and HDTV models, there is a wide range available. Choose the DVR Sky box models if you want to access the recording features Sky offers, and HDTV for enhanced picture quality. Some Sky boxes offer additional features such as built in WiFi, which allows you to stream content straight to your TV, or a USB port, so you can plug other devices into your Sky box. Multi room viewing, which will provide you with Sky channels on more than one television in your home, is another option.
Before purchase and installation, it's important to consider whether the Sky box is compatible with your current service provider and system, as well as what kit is provided with it. Having a Sky card or an active Sky subscription is not always necessary to view the free satellite channels. However, it is important to read the product description to find out what exactly is included with each model. It's also good to know in advance whether any additional kit will be required to make the Sky box operational. For example, if you're considering purchasing an HD Sky box, does it have the receiver built in or is it HD ready? Will you need to buy any extra cables, a plug adapter or a new remote control handset to make it work? One last thing to check is whether the seller is offering any warranty with the product, as this will save you money if the product develops any faults.
