      Really? I haven't seen the video so can't compare but this is the original Sky Wireless Connector as far as I am aware:

      Sky's New Wireless Connector-151214486.jpg

      Which to my eyes is identical to the one in the original post.

      I also read elsewhere in the forum that the new connector looks more like Apple TV and as an owner of an Apple TV I can assure you the picture above is nothing like it!

      Perhaps the new connector is going to be a third version?

      @stereohaven, your post makes perfect sense now. I forgot that part of it.

      This looks like the new wireless connector seen in the on demand video On Demand - Facts for TV on demand - Sky Products

      Should I wait for the new one or just order now?

      That's got to be it, much more like Apple TV!

      Personally I would wait for the second one, it's the same price, looks nicer and should be a little quicker if it is indeed 802.11n.

      I would wait for the new one. It looks miles better. Thanks for the headsup.

      The new one is now on the instructions for setting up.-
      On Demand - setting up a wireless connection | Sky Help and Support

      Possibly this is the one being supplied now.

      Re: Sky's New Wireless Connector

      Added a bigger image to the first post. It does look a million times better.

      Re: Sky's New Wireless Connector

      One has to wonder why they haven't just started building wifi capability into the boxes. I mean, they probably waste a few pence on every box with the useless sata and USB ports. Or why not make a nice USB dongle instead of an Ethernet bridge? Sky make some confusing decisions sometimes. New connector looks nice though.

      anyone got their 9.99 bridge yet?
      and yes, with the big on demand push I would have thought wireless integration was natural next step for sky box
