Nope. USB + SATA are both disabled.

Even if they were enabled, it wouldn't help in the way I am assuming the OP desires.

The Sky content is encrypted, and you wouldn't be able to watch it on the computer anyway.

Thats so Sky can sell us and external hard drive in the future I'll bet

Sky have said they will be enabling the SATA port in the not too distant future, and also said they will not be selling drives. You will be able to plug any drive in
