Sky +HD boxes go arty: 3 limited edition footie designs out for 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.
