Sky has announced the launch of a new Sky+HD box which can store up to 240 hours of high definition television with its 1TB capacity.

The new Sky+HD 1TB goes on sale from today at a price of £249 and as well as the larger capacity offers access to Sky's 37 HD channels, the new HD Sky Guide, Sky+ and Sky Anytime.

"We want to offer people as much choice as possible. We know customers are happy with the storage on our standard box, but the Sky+HD 1TB will appeal to people who want to watch and store even more HD TV", says Hilary Perchard, Sky's director of product management and marketing.  

The Sky+HD 1TB box is available with a Sky+HD subscription which is from £10 per month with installation costing £30 for new customers and £60 for existing customers.

The box will also work with Sky's coming-soon video on demand options and 3DTV services (although a 3DTV will also be required).
