Sky DRX895 Sky+HD Digibox 1.5TB (1TB personal space)

Brand new complete with 12 month warranty

The Sky DRX895 (PVR6) is the latest Sky+HD Digibox to the market. Sky now develop all their digiboxes in-house and as such this product has gone through a much more intense testing than any other manufacturer of Sky+HD Digibox to ensure it offers exceptional quality with reliability to match; ideal to enjoy the very best of Sky television, both in standard and high-definition.

The Sky DRX895 Sky+ HD Digibox stands out from the rest with its premium dark grey/black (gloss) curved shape, plus the improved smaller case design only found in this latest generation digibox; also comes with matching remote. The unit contains the larger *1.5TB capacity hard drive for recording even more of your favourite programmes with Sky+ (Sky+ requires an active subscription to Sky), allowing you to record up to 740 hours of SD and 240 hours of HD.

Sky+HD 1TB Personal Storage *1TB personal storage; the remaining 500GB 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 until the digibox displays the red 'off' light. 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 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 BBC1 HD, BBC HD, ITV1 HD, C4 HD and 5 HD (5 HD currently require a Sky FTV card). You are under no obligation to take out a subscription, or HD Mix (10.25 per month) with this purchase, as you are buying from us a non-subsidised digibox.

All digiboxes are brand new, come complete with 12 months warranty (supplied by us).

Instructions on how to pair your existing Sky viewing card (if applicable) can be found here.

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 21.50 per month (this also applies to recording free channels; this is not possible without a subscription to Sky). To fully utilise the Sky Plus record functionality, you need to install a Quad LNB and second cable. This will allow you to record one channel whilst watching/recording another, or alternatively record two channels whilst watching something pre-recorded. You can still use the Sky Plus functionality with a single cable, but will be limited to watching the channel you are recording.

BSkyB Acquisition of Amstrad Limited

All Sky digiboxes are manufactured in-house following BSkyB's acquisition of Amstrad; BSkyB are in the process of moving away from use of the Amstrad name and will be replacing it with the Sky name/logo. Whilst this transition is underway it is possible that the product will be labelled as "manufactured by Amstrad" or "manufactured by Sky", but in either case, there will be no difference between the products. This product might be known as the Amstrad DRX895.
