If you upgrade to a new Sky box, is it possible to somehow transfer all of your recorded material?

The self install upgrade is absolutely straightforward

For existing Sky HD existing customer, this costs £249 + £60 setup.

Not really worth it IMO

I think the Sky+HD 2TB box is a decent product. I don't know is it upgradable or not? But good to choose a new one. Because for existing costumers it won't be a good deal.

no idea!

I do subscribe to sky and have this box - If i no longer want to be a sky customer can i still use it for free channels?

I utterly hate the Sky HD box. It will only record one thing. I have missed so many of my favourites, because it fails to record every time. And on some days there no signal, either. You also can't fast forward or rewind, even on recordings. Utterly disgusted. Tried to tell them at Sky when they called to ask how I was getting on, but she abruptly ended the call. Does Sky only want good feedback? Honestly, if you're thinking of subscribing to Sky HD, don't. It's not worth the hassle.
