I assume you have to have a running sky contract to use the features of sky plus?

You can have a 10 per month standalone (so no extra channels) subscription to "enable" the Sky+ features for FFS viewing...

or alternatively, you could buy a 160GB TopUp TV box (120hrs vs 40hrs on Sky+) for 39 and use that with no subscription and Freeview/Freeview+ (which in many ways is better than FFS, in other ways not so). Sky+ is amazing, but unless you already have/want a subscription to channels, its not so good.

In general, PVR1 was 40GB, PVR was 40GB, PVR2-160 was 160GB (fully allocated to the user) and the PVR3 was 160GB with 80GB available to the user and 80GB reserved for Sky (Sky Anytime). There were some other less common variations. Sky+HD boxes are 300GB, 500GB and 1TB.
