Sky Cable unveils their latest service and new item for their cable subscribers that let them watch and record their favorite movies and tv shows in HD and SD format by the use of their TiVo like gadget called "DigiBox iRecord", it is a Personal Video Recorder or PVR, a digital box that is connected to your TV and cable via a HDMI cable, it can record shows on its 320 GB Hard Disc and you can watch the recorded video over and over again.
We know that everyone is waiting for this, since having a TiVO like in the USA are very helpful for people who arrives late at home to watch an evening news, a boxing fight or even a movie at HBO, with a click of a button from the Digibox iRecord and a Sky Cable tv, you can now store all those shows and movies in your HD drive and watch when you arrive home or even you are watching a show in another channel, because the PVR can record two shows simultaneously and while you watch a third show in another channel.
The 320GB HD can store up a 145 hours of SD video format or 86 hours for HD video format, thats equal to 70 movies, 100 plus episode of a one hour show and 80 plus documentaries of National Geographic HD. I haven't tried this yet due to that I failed to attend their launching this afternoon, but I'm glad that Sky Cable brings another 1st in our local market after the Sky Cable HD,I know most households wants this..you can never miss any shows like Mara Clara or Mutya, or a Manny Pacquiao Fight, Awards show, documentaries and movies.
You can get the Digibox iRecord for only P5,000 and add another P300 for a monthly digital recording service. (price source)
