    You will be much better off going down the Sat route as there are a lot more free channels available to you and you can also get yourself a server allowing you to get all the sly channels for a fraction of the cost, the type of box you need is a personal choice and also depends on what you want your box to do, will you want to watch one channel and record another etc, box prices start from about £50 up to and over £500 and there are literally 100's of boxes in between that price range.

    have a look at the Skybox thread on here and the HD9001 thread, budget HD boxs, recordable, apps such as youtube etc on them, all you need is a dish and internet, no sky package, a DM800 although good is expensive and uses linux, if you want cheap, cheerful etc, the ones i mention or a blade,
