Sky Glass streaming TV will launch in the UK on October 18Sky 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 get Sky TV over Wi-Fi, with no satellite dish, no box and no fuss. 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.

Sky partnered with Map Project Office, one of the world's leading design agencies, to create the design. Sky Glass comes in a choice of three sizes (Small 43", Medium 55" and Large 65") and five rich colors - Ocean blue, Ceramic white, Racing green, Dusky pink, or Anthracite black, with matching remotes and customizable speaker fascias for extra personalization. It has a mounting bracket cleverly integrated into the TV, or a sleek color-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 optimize sound performance and millimeter-perfect perforations help Sky Glass sound as good as it looks.

Sky Glass TVs use 4K displays with Quantum Dot technology, 10-bit color support, HLG, HDR10, and Dolby Vision. It also features the Intelligent Zonal Technology for improved brightness and contrast. They are also fitted with six powerful speakers in optimal positions to deliver edge-to-edge Dolby Atmos sound and a sub-woofer designed for a rich, deep bass.

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 favorite 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 favorite shows, movie,s 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. The streaming TV from Sky is built on technology borne of the collaboration as part of the Comcast Corporation – using the same operating system, and with shared knowledge and expertise.
