There is a vast array of Sky digital TV channels available to a Sky digital subscriber. When a Sky digital box is installed, the owner will be invited into a world of choice, with hundreds of channels available. This will ensure that there is always something to watch.

When you subscribe to the Sky digital service and begin using your Sky digital box, you will become one of the many satisfied customers that can access the Sky digital service across residential areas of the UK. It is the most popular option for receiving digital television programming, ahead of freeview and cable television services.

In order to receive the Sky digital TV service, you firstly need to have a digital satellite dish receiver installed on the outside of your house of apartment block, or in your garden if your building is listed. This will allow you to receive the signals beamed from the television satellites, and convert them into a meaningful image and sound combination on your TV. The next thing you will need is to have a Sky digital box installed in your home, usually beneath your main TV set.

Once the installation process is complete, you can then view a multitude of digital TV and radio stations, which fall into the following packages:
