Sky Italia had just launched a USB drive that is capable of boosting the number of HD channels available from sixteen to thirty.
The key simply plugs into the back of the set top box to side step the issues that surround the Mediaset and RAI channels, which are encrypted and end up being unavailable to subscribers of Sky Italia.
The USB key has a tiny DTT inside that is able to tune into channels that come from the local terrestrial transmitters.
These programmes are integrated into the existing electronic programme guide (EPG), providing the user with a seamless viewing experience.
The USB key can be used with both the HD and HD PVR set top boxes available from the broadcaster.
