Sky's stylish new digibox

Satellite TV

With all technology, looks are a big selling point – something that hasn’t gone unnoticed at Sky. According to sources close to Digital Spy, the TV giant is planning a radical change of design for the entry-level digibox.

The new design for 2006 (pictured) features a silver wrap-around cover with illuminated Sky logo. Despite the sharp new look, there will be no changes to functionality. The boxes will be manufactured by Amstrad, Pace and Thomson, with the first boxes entering distribution in early 2006.

The bad news? You can’t choose to have one of these new boxes over the old design. It’s all down to the luck of the draw.
