Designer Sky+ Boxes


Not since our first VHS cassette recorder were we as excited about a television invention as when Sky+ was launched.

Amazingly, it is actually ten years since the device was launched, enabling couch potatoes to record everything they wanted, and rewind and fast-forward live TV, without the constant fear of chewed tapes.

To celebrate this landmark, Sky are releasing ten limited-edition 1TB Sky+ HD boxes, designed by some of Britain’s most high profile fashion, fabric and jewellery designers including Matthew Williamson, Richard Nicoll, Agent Provocateur, Celia Birtwell, Julie Verhoeven, Solange Azagury-Partridge and Farrow & Ball.

So if you fancy adding a touch of design and style to your front room, pick up one of these for Christmas. Unfortunately we can't promise they'll make the programmes any better.
