By Gary Cutlack on at

Sky's begun the incomprehensibly complicated task of somehow beaming new software to our TV boxes from a satellite in space. The end result of this amazing technological feat is a few new options appearing on your telly.

Those with a compatible Sky+HD box ought to start seeing new features arrive from today, although the dread term "phased roll-out" seems to be in effect, so the update may hit some sooner than others. Once updated, users ought to see the Sky+ TV guide refreshed with new Smart Series record options, a Sports tile on the main screen, simultaneous HDMI TV switching and the enhanced Suggestions engine to remind you that you've not yet consumed all of your allocated allowance of media.
