Broadband provider Sky has unveiled three new limited edition set-top boxes to celebrate England's involvement in the upcoming World Cup.

The company has called on fashion designer Wayne Hemingway, actor Phil Daniels and cartoonist Gerald Scarfe to create their own colourful new Sky+HD boxes, which are available to buy from £249.

Each of the models includes 1TB of disk space and will be available for subscribers to purchase from the end of this month.

Phil Daniels' model features an eye-catching, colourful design which he claimed has been inspired by his time spent filming Zulu Dawn in South Africa just over 30 years ago.

He added: "I used those memories as a starting point when designing the World Cup box, and out came a flood of energy, colour and football."

Sky launched Europe's first 3D digital TV service at the start of April.

The platform is currently available in pubs and clubs, but will be available to homeowners later this year.
