      Sky today 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 new Sky+HD 1TB (www.sky.com/1TB) box, so called because of its one terabyte of personal storage, will be sold at a price of 249 from 28th January 2010. 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 Anytime, but with four times the storage capacity, which equates to around 100 HD movies or 740 hours of standard definition content. Sky Anytime 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 & 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 (www.sky.com/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, due to arrive later this year.”

      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 37 HD channels from leading brands such as Sky Movies, Sky Sports, Channel 4, E4, Disney, MTV, BBC, Discovery, FX, Sky1 and National Geographic.

      Further channels are due shortly, including Sky News HD (Spring 2010), with a view to growing the offering to 50 channels.

      Details on Sky’s pull VOD and 3DTV services, including pricing, packaging and entitlement, will be announced closer to launch.

      ooh, its heavanly, but 249 and its an amstrad?

      im sitting here looking at my box and some black spray paint

      i suppose the case is worth 50 alone it looks glossy and shiny(scratchable)

      the question is, does it run new software to allow more than 1tb? and is it 1.5tb including anytime?

      Re: Sky Launch New Sky+HD Box With 1TB HDD

      maybe it reallly is 1tb personal and 1.5tb inside

      also im a thick-head

      ive sprayed the sides and fron silver parts of my box, looking mint, with matt black enamel

      the lights are very dim and the IR sensor is blocked so ive just had to sand some off with a scourer and put a thin coat over it, and a tip, if anyone here tries to copy the 1tb look do i thinly and use plenty of waterproof tape to cover the butons.

      also is this box full size or small? i think the 500gb amstrad was a test to see how small they can go and i think 249 is really expensive for a sky+hd with a 1.5tb hdd

      and the mentioned 250gb is the new pvr5's
