Sky One is one of British Sky Broadcasting's entertainment channels in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
On September 1 1993 Sky One was encrypted as part of the Sky Multichannels subscription package, and could no longer be viewed outside the UK and Ireland without exporting a box, or receiving it over cable.
More recently, Sky One Mix (since renamed Sky Mix and then Sky Two in October 2005) was launched as a "catch-up" channel, screening repeats of key Sky One programmes later in the same week.
Sky digital and Sky analogue are broadcast from two different satellites and each requires a totally different type of receiver.
There is no requirement to subscribe to Sky to buy a digibox or to receive the BBC though at the time of writing there is no way for new viewers to receive ITV, C4 and C5 without a subscription, even though these channels are free.
To be sure of having a reasonable number of potential users of this service Sky decided to subsidise the purchase cost of the digibox as long as you agree to the digibox being connected to your phone for 12 months.
