Sky now have over 60 HD channels on offer and are adding channels all the time. To make the most of the HD and 3D channels available it is advisable to subscribe to the full Sky channel package, as the more channels you subscribe to the more HD channels you will receive. You don't have to take out a HD package at all and you can still use the Sky Plus HD box as a personal video recorder, so that you can make use of the larger hard drives that the HD boxes have to offer. If you wanted, you can just use the Sky HD box as a HD box and not use the recordable facility. The box would need to be set on single feed mode to be able to do this with only one cable input from the dish.
NB: Sky will still charge for the HD channels if you subscribe to say the 6 mix package at the same price as if you subscribe to the full package.

It allows you to record one channel while watching a different channel simultaneously, meaning you will not have to flip channels trying to catch a little of each program. With Sky plus you can sit back and watch one program while recording another to watch afterwards. You can also ´pause´ a program when the phone rings or rewind a program on live TV.
The equipment needed is a 1.3m dish, Sky Plus digibox, twin or quad LNB and a sky card. You can even bring your Sky Plus box over with you and just leave the rest to us.
NB: To make use of the Sky Plus and Sky HD recording facilities, you will need a Sky subscription as you will not be able to record if you do not subscribe.
