I assume you mean a NOWTV box.
I use a Roku LT, on which NOWTV box is based, and use about 150Gb a month.
You definitely need unlimited and, if you don't have it, restrict your usage until you get it or it'll prove very expensive.
Visit http://community.nowtv.com/ for more info regarding box.

You can connect the Sky HD box to the broadband for on demand content which gets downloaded to the box and older boxes can get a wifi connector to enable you to use that feature without having to use Ethernet to connect it to the router.

Re: sky on demand TV

As Bud Said the SkyHD boxes can be hooked up to the broadband and then you get various things on-demand, the available content depends entirely on what channels you subscribe to but for instance if you are subscribed to Movies then you can watch them on demand.
The box will download the requested content to it's harddrive using a progressive download technology (I.e you can start watching it before the download completes), they then show up in the planner just like something you'd recorded would.
I think the HD Movies tend to be a few GB each and the SD ones around 1GB so if you have a small usage limit it could use it quite quick
