Prices for a Sky+HD 1TB start from £99 for existing Sky customers, or £149 for new customers with the HD pack at £10.25 extra a month, or £249 without the HD package. Set up costs apply.

As with all Sky+HD boxes, it features an HDMI output (for HD video with Dolby Pro-Logic surround sound), digital audio output (for Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound), standard definition Scart outputs, and Ethernet.
