Sky Box +HD 1tb - Gerald Scarfe
Gerald Scarfe is an illustrator and political cartoonist. He's hopeful about England's chances in the World Cup..
Sky are celebrating the World Cup broadcasting in High Definition on their sports channels with the release of limited-edition high-design boxes.
Where the Sky Box has always been useful, it has never been an interior design statement, so this takes it to a new level. Sky have comissioned three artists famous for their love of football to produce the cases. The three chosen artists are: Fashion designer Wayne Hemingway, celebrated illustrator Gerald Scarfe and actor Phil Daniels -who dabbles in print-making it seems.
Check out their artistic efforts in our quick gallery below.
The box that has been decorated is the Sky +HD 1tb box with a huge 1 terabyte of storage, allowing you to store 240hrs of live TV for rewatching. As with all Sky+HD boxes you will also be able to access Sky’s new TV on demand service, Sky Anytime+, and watch 3D TV with a 3D ready TV – coming later this year. The limited edition design boxes cost the same as the standard ones.
The limited edition boxes, priced at £249 each, will be available from late May, ahead of start of the tournament on 11 June.
