Not possibile, there is no way to add disk space to a box

Sky support for Sky+HD and earlier systems has ended, you can still get support if you already have Sky Protect insurance otherwise you'll have to find your own 3rd party company to get support from at your own expense

You don't know what box they have now to know if your advice would be appropriate 🙂

@Patrick36 

The idea is you watch a programme and then delete it. Sky boxes are not intended for storing viewed programmes long term.

Only way to get more recording time would be to delete some stuff you no longer need

 

Bear in mind, [as N example] sky estimate of sd recordings on a 1tb sky q box is 500 hours and 2tb sky q box is 1,000 hours (for HD, you could divide time by 50% so 250 hours/500 hours).

 

It is a lot 

 

Plus if the hard drive malfunctions (like mine did last september), you'll lose the recordings. I know it is hard but sometimes you have to admit, I'll never watch them.

 

If you find using up a lot of space, sd recordings use less space.

If you would like more recording space and currently have a 1Tb Sky Q box, you can pay to upgrade to a 2Tb model. 

If you currently have a Sky+ box then you will need to source a box with a larger hard drive from a third party supplier such as eBay as Sky no longer supply them.

It should be noted, Changing q box from 1tb to 2tb  would mean losing the current q box (and the recordings on it)
