The unsubsidized Sky digibox can be used with or without a subscription card. No setup required, just plug in the required cables switch on and enjoy watching all your favorite UK TV and Radio channels.

Functionality wise the new design Sky Box is exactly the same as the previous Digibox.

The major difference is the cosmetic design which will be exactly the same across all three manufacturers Pace, Thomson and Amstrad.

Key design elements of the new design Sky Box are:

  • The distinctive sweeping top cover that seamlessly wraps around the product. The control buttons are positioned in a cursor arrangement on the top of the product, while the 4 LEDs remain on the front.
  • When you turn the box on the Sky logo will illuminate over a short period of time and then will return back to its discreet level.
  • The interactive card is located on the right hand side in the blue lens area and the Sky viewing card is located behind the door, under the interactive slot.
