    You can get a Sky HD box with 300gb Hard Drive on ebay for £200, there's larger models (500gb, 1000gb)

    But that ties you into a £10pm contract with Sky for 12 months

    ?? I thought, if you have sky and arent subscribing, you can buy the hd box, (on ebay etc & a dual/quad LNB) again without subscribing to sky, and receive the "freesat" hd channels.

    If you are not a subscriber you can just plug and play, yes. But I don't know what happens if you have to marry the card to the new box so you get the proper regions and C4 & five.

    It will work the same as any marrying any other box to your viewing card, the correct regions will appear straight away.

    Looking at the pros and cons of the freesat thing I am actually starting to think the Sky HD box as a receiver only (therefore no sub) might be the way to go just now.
