Had it since launch and paid the £10 a month for two years before getting the fee waived for subscribing to a suitable package. It that doesn't demonstrate my views of the system and it's reliabilty then nothing will
However in all honesty I have to accept that there are far too many problems arsing from software and hardware issues.
Better build quality, more stringent customer service with no recycling of broken hardware back into the supply chain and SKY's acceptance that supporting HD upgrades is the better long term option than writing code that is not HD upgrade friendly should all be addressed.
I have to admit that its very good. The picture is the best I've ever seen and the sound is excellent.
The box has crashed twice in the two and half weeks I've had it (freezes, you have to pull the power out).
It has allowed us to timeshift everything to suit our hours and thats brilliant.
I should point out that we had no alternative to Sky as we cannot get any other reception and that I was utterly sick of VHS.
glad to hear most people think sky+ is good as i am having it it installed on easter sunday, maybe now i will actually get to watch a film or two, as there never seems too be any on at the time i want to watch them
My best buy last year! Not without some problems, but if you get it you wont regret it. - That is if you enjoy normal Sky, it doesn't improve what they sometimes show. However soon it'll be that stacked with juicy recordings, you should be able to fill the flat spots.
