Sky+ HD Box with Wi-Fi surfaces with a reasonable price tag

Back in July we reported on Sky's plans to launch a new Wi-Fi enabled Sky+ HD Box and now it has leaked online thanks to online retailer Aerialsat.

Aerialsat had 500GB and 2TB models on listed its website priced at £179.99 and £279.99 respectively. The new Wi-Fi-enabled box will mean no more worrying about running Ethernet cables around your house. It'll also mean no more RF port as this has been replaced with an IO port. The new box, rather strangely, was annotated by the retailer, highlighting the WPS button on the front.

We spoke to Sky for clarity who pointed out these Wi-Fi-equipped boxes shouldn't be on sale just yet. They have since been pulled from the retailer's website. Sky told us that the official launch will happen in "the next few weeks".

With Aerialsat saying the 2TB version will be available from September 2 - a well-timed launch just before IFA - we're keeping our eyes peeled.

We will keep you posted.
