Thomson will initially manufacture the Sky HD Box.

It will be capable of receiving and recording all of the new HD channels as well as all the existing SD channels.

Sky HD uses MPEG4 technology.

In addition it will have all of the functionality of a standard Sky+ receiver (subject to a Sky+ Subscription).

It supports Dolby 5.1 sound and has a new design of remote control.

The Sky HD box has been designed to reduce the audible noise during use. It has two on-board cooling fans to protect against overheating: due to the increased processing power and 300Gb hard drive.
