Alongside its extended catch up service, Sky launched a new Sky+ HD box which packs 2TBs of storage, allowing it to store three times that of Virgin Media’s TiVo box, with 350 hours of HD recordings in total.
The new box joins the catch up TV service, which brings ITV Player and Demand 5 to Sky + customers, via the On Demand section which used to called Sky Anytime.
BBC iPlayer and 40D will also be joining the service, but not until this autumn and early 2013 respectively.
If you are a new customer you can pick up the new 2TB for £49 whilst registering, with a £249 per box after that, alongside standard set-up costs which are £30 for new customers and £60 for existing.
If you are an existing customer you can get the new box for £149 by adding Multiroom or the HD package for the first time, after which it will cost £249 for subsequent boxes.
