Sky has announced that its high definition television service will be made available to the general public next Wednesday (April 12). The broadcaster has launched a website and a dedicated phone line to take orders for the installation. Customers will pay 299 for the Thomson-manufactured box and an additional 10 per month on top of their regular Sky subscription. In addition to its HD capability, the terminal will also be equipped with 160GB storage space, allowing for 30 hours of HD programming or 80 hours of standard definition recordings.
