**Introduction** I had wanted to get Sky for a while and having moved to a smaller town in February last year I was unsatisfied with the Pubs in the area compared to where I used to watch Football in my hometown of Taunton. I had been thinking about Sky for a few months but was put off by the price so opted for making do with ESPN on Top Up TV. I then heard of several offers which Martin Lewis was mentioning on Moneysupermarket and I decided to have a look into it. Unfortunately there were only a limited amount of codes available so when I saw a status update on Facebook from someone who was in my Year at School who now works for Sky I jumped at the chance. I ... Read the complete review

Introduction:- We recently moved into a new house and having Sky installed was close to the top of our list of luxuries that we wanted when we moved in, we mainly settled with Sky due to the fact that we cannot get Virgin Entertainment packages in our area at present, and when compared to other digital TV companies, provided the best value for money for us with the channels available, subscription prices, and service. Of course as part of the deal when signing up with Sky as a new customer we received for free a Sky+ HD box which will form the basis of this review. Setting It Up:- As mentioned we got free installation as first time ... Read the complete review

INTRODUCTION When I joined sky just over a year ago, this was the SKY plus HD box I chose. So far I have not had any problems; in fact I really enjoy using it! DESIGN Design wise, this Sky box looks really good, especially when considered with the previous old Sky white boxes, as well as the competitor's set top boxes. It is a sleek matt black colour, but has a silver line across the front of it. The box is about 3 inches thick and around the surface area of an A4 Leaf of Paper. The box has a very nice blue LED light on the front which can be customised, as to when you see it light up. There are a few buttons on the top of the box ... Read the complete review

==Amstrad DRX890Sky Plus HD Set Top Box== I always said we would never get Sky but because of the deal where you get the internet, phone and extra TV channels worked out a lot cheaper than what I was already paying with BT for internet and phone I decided it was worth it (especially as I got £100 Marks and Spencer vouchers too!). Sky now gives you the Amstrad DRX890 Sky + HD Set top box when you order and I must say that we have been really pleased with the performance of this box since its arrival. The box itself looks pretty slick and far better than the old white coloured ones which I assumed we would get. The box is not too big and has a ... Read the complete review

When we moved into our flat a couple of months ago it hadn't really crossed my mind to get Sky. My Mum and Dad has Sky until about 3 years ago when they got rid of it as their TV had freeview built in anyway and they just couldn't justify the monthly payment. My partner was used to Sky though as her Mum and Dad had it in their house and was keen that we got it too. We had a look online and were offered the Entertainment Plus package, free Sky+ HD box, installation and £50 worth of M&S vouchers for £25 a month which is a lot better than the price I was expecting. I was in on my own when the Sky was in put in so when the engineer left I had full reign ... Read the complete review
