No satellite dish, no box, one wire, one plug – the new streaming TV from Sky
Sky today said it is redefining and creating a new category within the TV market with the launch of Sky Glass, “the only TV with award-winning Sky inside”.
The idea is to dramatically simplify the way consumers watch TV by integrating hardware, software and content, meaning households can now get Sky TV over WiFi, with no satellite dish and no box – just a single wire and one plug.
The streaming TV is built on technology borne of the collaboration as part of the Comcast Corporation, which acquired Sky in 2018, using the same operating system, and with shared knowledge and expertise. “Simply plug, pair and play to enjoy stunning screen quality and cinematic sound, with everything you need built in, so you will be ready to go in minutes.”
“Built on over 30 years of understanding what our customers want, this is a TV that only Sky could make,” said Dana Strong, Group Chief Executive of Sky. “We believe this is the smartest TV available, and that customers will love it.”
The unit offers Ultra HD and Quantum Dot technology producing over 1 billion colours and 360° Dolby Atmos® sound with powerful built-in speakers and sub-woofer. It is the “world’s first” TV to be certified as a CarbonNeutral® product and, according to Sky, it is made to be affordable.
Choose to buy your TV like you buy your mobile phone by paying in one go or spread the cost with interest-free monthly payments. It is available from £13 per month exclusively with Sky TV, with an additional £26 for Sky Ultimate TV and for the first time HD is included as standard.
Sky Glass comes in 43”, 55” and 65” sizes in a choice of five colours: Ocean blue, Ceramic white, Racing green, Dusky pink, or Anthracite black, with matching remotes and customisable speaker fascias for extra personalisation. It has an integrated mounting bracket or colour-matched stand.
The new streaming TV from Sky is available to buy in the UK from 18 October and will launch in Sky’s other European markets from 2022.
