Sky UK recently announced that they will be launching a new version of their Sky+HD digibox, which is expected to be available from early September 2013.

The new Sky+HD Digibox, the DRX890W will have built-in / integrated wireless internet connection as standard, and has a “WPS” button to help wifi connection.

Initially the new Sky+HD digibox will become the version offered to new Sky HD subscribers, and to targeted groups of customers who don’t yet have Sky+HD boxes.

So far Sky+HD users have had to connect their box to their router via Ethernet and Ethernet cable, sometimes meaning running cables around rooms to ensure the connection. With the new Sky+HD Wi-Fi-enabled digibox, Sky+HD users will only have to ensure theat their Sky+HD Wi-Fi-enabled digibox is located in an area capable of receiving a Wifi signal.

The new Sky+HD Wi-Fi-enabled digibox will no longer have the RF port (Aerial in and RF1/RF2 Out), which may prove a disappointment for anyone who use a “Sky Magic Eye” RF system to output the pictures to other TVs using coaxial cables.

Reports suggest that there will be two versions of the Sky+HD Wi-Fi-enabled digibox – a 500GB and a 2TB version.

It is unknown when these boxes will be made available to buy in Spain and Europe, and at what price.
