Amstrad Sky DRX895 HD Digibox 1TB. Sky HD Digibox Spain
Sky launched their Sky+HD box with a massive 1TB HDD, allowing customers to record upto 240 hours of HD entertainment.
Sky announced another milestone in its innovation story with the introduction of a new Sky+HD box which can store up to 240 hours of personal high definition (HD) television, the largest capacity HD personal video recorder in Europe.
The Sky+HD 1TB box, is so called because of its one terabyte of personal storage. The box offers all the benefits of a standard Sky+HD box, including access to Sky’s 37 HD channels, the new HD Sky Guide, Sky+ and Sky On Demand, but with four times the storage capacity, which equates to around 100 HD movies or 740 hours of standard definition content. Sky On Demand also increases its memory size, to allow for up to 160 hours of HD content, to view on-demand.
Hilary Perchard, Sky’s Director of Product Management and Marketing: “We want to offer people as much choice as possible. We know customers are happy with the storage on our standard box, but the Sky+HD 1TB will appeal to people who want to watch and store even more HD TV. Whether customers take a Sky+HD box or the new Sky+HD 1TB box, they’re guaranteed a premium viewing experience that is future-proofed for Sky’s 3D and video-on-demand services”
Sky launched the UK’s first national HD service in May 2006 which has since become Europe’s most successful HD service. Today Sky+HD customers can watch 50 HD channels from leading brands such as Sky Movies, Sky Sports, Channel 4, E4, Disney, MTV, BBC, Discovery, FX, Sky1 and National Geographic.
The Sky+ HD 1 TB box actually contains a 1.5 TB drive; however, only 1 TB is available for user storage, with the remaining 500 GB being reserved for system usage.
Please note that a Sky+HD digibox requires two separate cable connections from your satellite dish. This means that your dish needs to be fitted with either a Twin or a Quad LNB. If the LNB on your dish only has one output port on it then you will have to upgrade your LNB.
