Earlier today, Sky announced the launch of Sky Glass, dramatically simplifying the way customers watch TV by integrating hardware, software and content. Sky Glass will be the only TV with award-winning Sky inside.

For the first time in the UK, you can now ditch the satellite dish and set-top box to simply stream Sky TV over your WiFi. The new streaming TV from Sky is available to buy in the UK from 18th October and will launch in Sky’s other European markets from 2022.

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. With easy access to stream your favourite content and apps using your voice and incredible search, Sky Glass makes it simple for you to find and watch the TV you love.

TV never looked so good

Sky partnered with Map Project Office, one of world’s leading design agencies, to create the elegant design. Sky Glass comes in a choice of three sizes (Small 43”, Medium 55” and Large 65”) and five rich colours.

Choose from Ocean blue, Ceramic white, Racing green, Dusky pink, or Anthracite black, with matching remotes and customisable speaker fascias for extra personalisation. It has a mounting bracket cleverly integrated into the TV, or a sleek colour matched stand. With a single wire and just one plug, Sky Glass makes clutter a thing of the past, while the woven acoustic mesh used to optimise sound performance and millimetre-perfect perforations help Sky Glass sound as good as it looks.

Spectacular screen and spine-tingling sound

With over a billion colours, a 4K Ultra HD Quantum Dot screen delivers crystal-clear picture, while the 10-bit HDR screen supports HLG, HDR10 and Dolby Vision to produce vibrant, more intense colour. Whether you’re cheering on your team in the Premier League or getting stuck into the latest blockbuster, Sky Glass knows what you’re watching and optimises sound and picture for you, while Intelligent Zonal Technology works to bring you darker darks and brights that look brighter.

Transform your living room into a cinema, concert, or stadium with six powerful, integrated speakers in optimal positions to deliver edge to edge Dolby Atmos sound and a sub-woofer designed in for a rich, deep bass – all without buying a separate soundbar.

With far field voice and Glance Motion Technology, just say “Hello Sky” or walk past to bring the streaming TV to life. A new home page makes it easier to find, watch and play the TV you love. It brings all your favourite content from across Sky, BBC iPlayer, Netflix, Disney+, ITV Hub, All4, Spotify, Peloton, PlayWorks and more. Use your voice to find what you want in a flash and to turn on the TV, control the volume or switch to connected devices.

At the press of a single button, you can now create a personal Playlist of your favourite shows, movies and more across apps and channels, live and on demand. The new plus button on the remote adds to your Playlist for you to stream any time you want – all in one place.

You never need to miss a show again with live Restart, you can jump straight back into anything that’s on now and available to watch from the start.

Doesn’t cost the Earth

Sky Glass is the world’s first TV to be certified as a CarbonNeutral product. Sustainably designed, it has low power features built in such as auto-switch-off and auto-adjusting screen brightness helping it to be more energy efficient. It is the only TV to come in recyclable packaging, free from single-use plastic and by using a TV with everything built in, you reduce electricity consumption by up to 50%.

Hi-tech. Low price.

That’s £39 per month to get the 43” Sky Glass TV plus every episode of award-winning Sky Originals and Sky Exclusives, all your favourite channels and a fantastic line up you won’t find on Freeview, as well as Netflix. For just £4 more a month you can increase the size of your TV to a 55”, or £8 more for a 65”.
