What is Sky+?
Sky+ is an enhanced Sky set top box that has two tuners and a built in hard drive.
The two tuners allow the box to receive two channels at the same time so that you can watch one Sky channel while you record a different one. The hard drive is the built in storage space that the set top box records onto so you don't need to use your DVD or video recorder as all the recording is done inside the box.
