Sky has polished up its On Demand services and parked them in a set top with a humungous Sky+ HD 2TB drive. Welcome to TV nirvana…

Massive hard drive ; Improved On Demand choice ; Seamless app integration

No 5.1 Dolby Digital over HDMI ; Only two tuners

The Sky+HD 2TB set -top box is the slickest, fattest TV recorder yet. It looks smart, runs quiet and offers unbeatable ease of use. As a step-up from the broadcaster’s previous 1TB offering, it’s darn near impossible to resist, given the sheer number...

If you love TV, then it's quite likely that getting a Sky+HD box will be the best decision of your life. Sports fans will find more than they could ever watch while holding down a job, and movie lovers are pretty well catered for too. The hardware is...

Excellent HD picture and sound quality ; Speedy box ; Tonnes of channels ; Heaps of HD content ; Pay-per-view service is excellent

We're upset by the £10 fee for viewing HD ; Too many channels that don't really deserve to be on the air at all ; Expensive

If you love sport, movies and TV in general, then Sky is the logical choice for you. We were very impressed by the service, which the company has continually improved, and we think it represents pretty decent value for money, although that extra HD fee...

Match it with the right sound and vision kit, and your TV watching will be transformed

Great Sky+ recording functionality; fine selection of sports and movies; can look and sound stunning; price

We'd like more of that 300GB capacity available for recordings

Sky+ HD is the original High-Definition box, feeding your hungry peepers with an ever-burdgeoning amount of HD channels and a side-order of hundreds of standard-definition channels. Even Michael Parkinson has one.

Range of HD content and extensive channel choice

Lacks comprehensive on-demand content

For sport and an ever-expanding range of top-drawer HD content, this remains the undisputed champion. Even Michael Parkinson likes it...

I've been looking at buying Sky HD on and off for over a year now, basically since I got a my Samsung 32″ LCD HDTV. Up until now I've been using an upscaling DVD player to bring my viewing closer to High Definition quality, but now here's my Sky HD...

In terms of costs, yes you are paying for the Sky HD box and an extra £10 a month, but I’m definitely saving money in the long run as I'm no longer buying DVDs (with lower picture quality) which I only end up watching once.

Sky's finally got there with HD broadcasts - but is it worth the hype?

HD pictures can be almost unbelievably good, good connectivity, good design, nice price for the box

10 extra subscription seems a bit steep, occasional software glitches, variable HD picture quality

Its connections panel intriguingly sports both component and HDMI outputs for HD pictures. Originally Sky had suggested that it would only allow HD pictures to leave via the HDMI socket because of HDMI's more advanced anti-piracy measures. So...
