About the DRX890WL

The Sky DRX890WL is the last of the very best Sky+HD Digibox available, developed in-house by Sky. This digibox has gone through a much more intense testing than any previous manufacturer of Sky+HD Digibox ensuring it offers exceptional quality with reliability to match; ideal to enjoy the very best of Sky television, both in standard and high-definition.

Brand new complete with 1 year manufacturers warranty.

This is the very latest genuine 'WL' 2017/2018 model with built-in wifi (for accesing on-demand services) and official 500GB hard drive, sealed and brand new. We buy through the official Sky agent (ASA) supply chain, ensuring official brand new stock.

The Sky DRX890WL Sky+ HD Digibox carries a well crafted dark black (matt) curved shape, plus the small case design only found in this latest generation digibox; also comes with matching remote. The unit contains the large 500GB capacity hard drive for recording even more of your favourite programmes with Sky+ (Sky+ recording requires an active subscription to Sky), allowing you to record up to 185 hours of SD and 60 hours of HD.

As the latest generation Sky digiboxes no longer include a built-in RF output, you will need the Global iO-Link Modulator if you want to connect up to additional rooms/televisions to share the channel signal.

I ordered my Skybox Sunday evening and had it in my hands Wednesday evening. Now that's what I call service.

Previous box died on Saturday, ordered a new one with next working day delivery, it arrived Tuesday, as expected, so all good. Brand new in box with all the accessories, which is awesome because previous remote was on its last legs too. Also it came with an hdmi lead!! It's a small touch but most new devices don't supply one so a pleasant surprise and it means I could plug it in immediately. From opening the box I had it installed and working within 5 minutes. I was then expecting to have to phone sky to pair the box with the card but by chance tried switching to a sky channel, it informed me the card was not paired but I only had to press select to pair it. So all done seamlessly over the Internet without me having to spend ages on the phone with sky. Definitely a bonus. So end result, box switched and watching sky in less than 10 minutes on a brand new shiny box. Awesome

Ordered late evening Monday and received midday Thursday, fantastic. The pairing with Sky took three minutes and it was fully functional. The only problem I had was re setting our other TV's because I forgot to set the I/O port to on.

Excellent service. Sky HD box plugged in and after a quick software update, I was up and running within 15 minutes. Your paperwork and customer service team are top drawer. Satbuyer are a supplier that I would recommend without hesitation to other ex pats.
