Sky Television is the United Kingdom's largest pay-TV operator with around 10 million customers receiving digital and high-definition, premium TV channels via satellite.
All Sky TV customers get a satellite receiver, known as a "digibox," as part of their subscriptions. There are three types of Sky digibox: the original Sky TV digital satellite receiver; the Sky Plus set-top box with integrated hard-disk recorder; and the Sky Plus HD high-definition receiver with integrated recorder. You can set all Sky satellite receivers to output TV pictures in a range of formats, including widescreen.
