Sky have unveiled Sky Q, their next-generation home entertainment system. The new ecosystem will allow you to:

  • Watch shows from your box, whether live, recorded or on demand, anywhere around the home on another TV or tablet
  • Pause viewing on one TV screen and pick up where you left off in another room
  • For the first time, take your favourite shows with you by saving recordings onto your tablet to watch anywhere
  • Watch different programmes on up to five screens simultaneously while also recording four other channels
  • Supercharge your Sky Broadband by turning all your Sky Q boxes into Wi-Fi hotspots
  • Scroll and swipe the new touchpad remote to choose what to watch on an all-new TV guide
  • Use the powerful search capability of Sky Q to find everything related to a show
  • Access an even wider range of entertainment on the big screen including YouTube, Vevo and the best of the web
  • Browse your Facebook photos and stream music wirelessly using Bluetooth or Apple’s AirPlay

 

The new service will launch in early 2016, and in addition, Sky Q will be Ultra HD ready in advance of the launch of the UK & Ireland’s Ultra High Definition service later in 2016. The new service will offer customers a range of sports, movies, and entertainment content with up to four times the detail of HD.

Jeremy Darroch, Sky’s Chief Executive, commented: “Sky Q is a brilliant new way for customers to experience TV on their terms. We wanted to re-imagine TV so that it’s flexible and seamless across different screens and to put a huge choice of entertainment at their fingertips. We think customers are going to love Sky Q and the great news is that it will get even better with much more to come in the future.”

A new range of Sky’s products to co-incide with the service launch include:

  • Sky Q Silver and Sky Q – two new super-slim, powerful boxes for the main TV set, featuring up to 12 tuners and up to 2TB of storage
  • Sky Q Mini – a new plug and play box giving wireless access to Sky Q in other rooms in the home without running cables from the dish
  • Sky Q Hub – the all new Hub has built in Powerline networking technology, so it can use in-home electrical wiring as well as Wi-Fi to communicate with Sky Q boxes, automatically giving the best connection available. The Sky Q Hub also turns Sky Q boxes into Wi-Fi hotspots which means Sky Broadband customers get a stronger signal and better coverage throughout the home
  • Sky Q app –  a brand new app for your tablets that lets you enjoy all of the Sky Q experience at home, and take recordings with you and watch live and on demand content on the go
