      As i understand the only thing they can do at the moment is used to charge your Ipod etc, but that's it.

      I've heard a rumor that there is a cam style device coming in the near future to wirelessly link your sky/sky+/skyHD box to SkyBB routers for vod. Whilst a usb device could do the same job, only the newer boxes have it, whereas all sky boxes have the 'digital interface' that will accept the cam devices.

      Like I said only a rumor, but quite plausable i think.

      Yes it is currently the Sky By Broadband service, but why not (possibly) extend that service to the tv as well?? Or even offer box office on demand type services.

      like i said it is only a rumor, but certainly one to keep an eye out for more info!

      There is a major update for the Sky by Broadband Service,
      Where you can get Sky Box Offfice movies & also some SkyOne content?

      But I dont see why they would want to fund out more money on this iPTV service for?

      However they may - thinking of BT-21C Update? When it all turns IP based?>

      iPTV
      VOiP
      ???

      Re: USB slots

      i read in a magazine somewhere that there would be a portable sky+ media player released, like a portable dvd players but you would watch programs recorded onto your sky+ box. you would then transfer the programmes to the media player.

      You could use them to store things like USB memory sticks.
