Samsung HDSKY 500 Sky+HD Digibox (500GB)

All digiboxes are brand new, come complete with 12 months warranty (supplied by us) and instructions on how to pair your existing Sky viewing card (if applicable)

The Samsung 500 Sky+HD Digibox (PVR5) is one of a new generation of Sky+HD Digibox; offering improved picture and sound quality as well as reliability to enjoy the very best of Sky television, both in standard and high-definition.

The Samsung 500 Sky+HD Digibox design matches the original HD models, with its dark black curved shape and matching remote. The unit contains the larger *500GB capacity hard drive for recording even more of your favourite programmes with Sky+ (Sky+ requires an active subscription to Sky), allowing you to record approx. 250 hours of digital TV.

*250GB personal storage; the remaining 250GB is retained by Sky for Anytime/VOD/3D services.

To conform to EU legislation this Sky+HD Digibox comes with the new Sky 'off' mode to allow you to switch off and meet the maximum 1watt power usage. This option is selected by pressing and holding the power button for 5 seconds on the digibox until the red 'off' light displays. In 'off' mode the digibox will NOT record any scheduled recordings, download Sky Anytime content or support TV Link, so they have included a 'standby' mode as well by just pressing the power button once, the digibox with go into sleep mode and display an amber light instead. A neat feature to meet all regulations.

This brand new latest version Samsung Sky High Definition Digibox can be used with an existing Sky Subscription card, to benefit from the Sky+ functionality, or subscription HD channels (HD Mix). Alternatively without a card you can still receive all free HD channels, such as BBC HD, ITV1 HD, Luxe HD and C4 HD (C4 HD currently requires a Sky FTV card). You are under no obligation to take out a subscription, or HD Mix (10 per month) with this purchase, as you are buying from us a non-subsidised digibox.

Please note that the Sky+ record functionality is free, but only available to those with a new or existing Sky subscription. You cannot use the Sky+ record functionality without a subscription, starting from 18.00 per month (this also applies to recording free channels; this is not possible without a subscription to Sky).
