Sky+HD2TB-wi-fi.jpgSky have announced that both of their Sky+HD box models on offer to customers in the UK will now come with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity as standard. Whether you’re signing up for the entry-level Sky+HD box or the capacious 2TB model, you’ll no longer have to snake a wire around to the back of the box in order to access on-demand content.

“Record levels of On Demand viewing show that Sky customers love the flexibility the service offers,” said Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s Brand Director of TV Products.

“When people connect their Sky+HD box to broadband they get instant access to the UK’s biggest Catch Up TV service and an extensive On Demand library of TV Box Sets and exclusive movies – and we’re seeing a growing demand.

“We want even more people to enjoy these benefits, so we’re making it easier to get connected by launching our best ever Sky+HD box with built-in Wi-Fi and offering existing customers a free On Demand connector.”

Owners of older Sky+ boxes who are also looking to get in on the Wi-Fi streaming action can head over to, where the company are offering an On Demand wireless plug-in add-on for free.
