BSkyB 3000 Sky+ box personal television recorder and digital satellite receiver, Serial Number: RAAACRZ244220284, made by Pace PLC, 2001. With four cables, remote control, and original packaging.

The introduction of digital television and video technologies made it possible for users to have far more choice over their television habits than ever before. This set top box from British satellite broadcaster Sky allowed users to ‘time-shift’ programmes by pausing them or saving them for later using a built in Personal Video Recorder (PVR).
