if you are not subscribing to sky then a sky+ or HD box will be no different to a basic digibox, although you would get bbc HD trial channel with the Hidef box.

The technomate wont get anything any different from a basic sky box either, if you are just using a fixed sky dish, but it will mean you will lose the sky 7-day epg and basic menu features. Obviously if you are subscribing to sky then you need to keep a digibox and the technomate will be zero use to you.

The technomate is used for access to many other satellites in the sky, but you will need to invest in a new dish to go with that. It doesnt have anything to do with sky but is can be a great hobby to get into. Maybe visit the technomate section we have or perhaps the european sat section and read more on satellite tv.

Hope that helps.

a sky box is for sky, it wont be any use on a motorised dish whatsoever. A technomate tms1500ci or 1500 range will be a great start into satellite tv. You dont have to have a motorised dish but you will need a larger dish than the sky minidish. If you want the most amount of choice, especially for football, then you need to choose a motorised system. Its a great hobby as well as lots of stuff to watch.
Its not about sky though, rule of thumb is sky toys are for sky, other satellite equipment is for satellite reception :).
