      I would have thought so yes.

      If not I bet they will be by ringing Sky.

      Its unlikely, none of the Sky routers have ever been available on line. You have always had to order them by phone.

      So, sounds like calling them would be the safest bet then.

      I'm horrendous whan it comes to these sort of things. I fully admit I don't actually need one, but if it's the latest thing, then I want one!

      What's the betting that the first ones to call will be met with - "New router, what new router?"

      Yup, this had certainly occured to me, and also the potential of simply receiving another 2504N even though they sounded like they knew what you were talking about. You just know it's gonna happen!

      Re: New Sky Router

      Has anyone any idea of the likely demand for the new routers? Would it run into thousands on day 1?

      Re: New Sky Router

      Can't see the demand being that huge surely?

      Not as if many folk are going to be signing up purely on the strength of getting the new Sky Hub, and probably only the more geeky amongst the existing users will even know it's likely being released tomorrow.

      Justy my thoughts on the matter.
