Sky Plus is a satellite television subscription service available in the United Kingdom. Services include high-definition satellite TV programming with an HD receiver the company calls a Sky Plus Box. The receiver hooks up to an HDTV with a high definition media interface (HDMI) cable that delivers picture and sound in a single connection. HDMI is a good choice for the best possible video and audio because it transmits a high-definition image and up to eight channels of digital audio.
