“First of all there's the installation. I thought I...”

Written on: 04/03/2004 by Ian Hammond (1 review written)

First of all there's the installation. I thought I would take advantage of Skys online offer of £199 for the Sky+ Digital TV box plus £1 installation. I filled in all the details online and clicked send. A few hours later I recieved an E-mail to tell me that my application had been accepted and that my £200 had been debited from my account.

You MUST have the box "turned on" by Sky to make use of the recording facilities.If you have a digibox now then the on screen display etc will be… Read Full Review
