Sky+: A Hassle Free Solution To The Digital Switchover

Posted on: 27 March 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

Create your own TV schedule.

By now you may have heard that over the next few years, region by region, the analogue television signal will be switched off and replaced by a digital signal. This means that if the TVs in your home do not have a built in digital signal or are not linked to a digital box like Sky, you will no longer be able to watch TV on those sets.

What you might be less aware of is that after switchover some DVD and video recorders won't be able to record one channel while you watch another. Sky+ is a good solution for a hassle free digital switchover as it's a digital recorder and receiver in one plus offers some great additional benefits.

Fit TV Around Your Life

Sky PlusWith busy lives we don't want to be ruled by a TV schedule. With Sky+ you can select shows from the next 7 days that you want to watch and add them to your Sky+ planner for you to watch at your leisure. Users of Sky+ see it as creating their own personal TV channel with only the shows they are interested in.

The End Of Programme Clashes

Rather than have to choose between your favourite shows when they clash, with Sky+ you can enjoy them all by recording two programme at once and even watching another you recorded earlier at the same time.

Never Miss An Episode Of A Series

Don't you just hate it when you get hooked to a series only to miss an episode due to a last minute change of plan or because you are away on holiday? With Sky+ you will never miss an episode again as one push of the button records the whole series without any tapes, timers or fuss.

Avoid Interruptions

With Sky+ you can pause and rewind live TV. So, if the doorbell rings whilst you are watching the cricket just press pause, see who's there and then press play to carry on from where you left off. You can even rewind too.

Discover New And Exciting Shows

Sometimes the sheer choice of channels available can be so overwhelming you don't know what to watch. With Sky Anytime TV, Sky selects a pick of the week's best programmes on Sky TV for you to enjoy when you're ready.

Sky+ is available from £99 when you join Sky. To find out more visit
