If you’re still wondering if a Sky Glass is for you, we’ve got all the information you need to know before purchasing. This guide will explain what Sky Glass is, how to use it, and how much each plan will cost.
What is Sky Glass?
Sky Glass is a smart television which has all of Sky’s channels living inside of the TV and works using Wi-Fi. It removes the need for any extra hardware or satellites and allows you to stream all of your favourite shows from all of your favourite apps in one place.
Sky Glass is made to enhance your viewing experience and not only does it make manoeuvring the world of TV and streaming effortless, it also focuses on making sure the picture quality and sound are at its highest level.
Six powerful Dolby Atmos speakers ensure 360° sound and Sky Glass’s Auto-Enhance feature identifies what you’re watching, automatically tailoring the sound to match this. It has three sound options: sport, music and movie mode, meaning you’ll always have that front-row feeling, be that in a stadium, concert, or cinema.
Auto-Enhance doesn’t just tailor the sound to these but also the picture, adjusting it to make the darks darker and brights brighter. Sky Glass’s 4K Quantum Dot screen allows for all of this to happen and with 8.3 million pixels, a crystal clear picture is guaranteed.
Sky Glass also comes with a voice-controlled remote which helps you instantly seek out your desired content. You can create playlists for your favourite shows and restart any programme from the beginning which you’ve missed the start of.
It has normal sky features such as recording, a new ‘save for later’ option and stores everything on the cloud, so you won’t need to worry about storage or clashing programs.
What sizes is the Sky Glass TV available in?
Sky Glass TV is available in small, medium or large. The small screen is 43 inches, the medium is 55 inches, and the large is 65 inches. The price increases the larger your TV.
How does Sky Glass work?
Sky Glass prides itself on being easy to set up and easy to use. It comes with a TV stand and only one cable that you need to plug in. It works using Wi-Fi, so all channels, apps, games, and extra add-ons can be used in an instant.
When you buy a Sky Glass, you must sign up for their Entertainment and Netflix package. From here, you can enjoy all regular television channels, Sky originals and exclusives, as well as Netflix’s extensive library.
When buying a Sky Glass, you also have the option of adding Sky Live, an interactive camera designed to turn your TV into an all-round gaming, fitness, and video experience.
What is Sky Live?
Sky Live is one of the add-ons you can choose to accompany your Sky Glass. It is an interactive camera which connects to your TV and allows you to chat with friends and family, watch TV and live sports together, work out, and play games.
With the chat function, you can call phones, tablets, and other TVs, directly from your Sky Glass. Powered by Zoom, you can connect to loved ones through your big screen. The same technology allows you to watch along with friends and family. You can enjoy live sports, series, and films, together, even if you’re in a different room, home, or country.
Sky Live doesn’t just boost socialising, but workouts as well. You can connect to a digital personal trainer and the camera will use tracking to analyse your moves and give you pointers on form and technique. Whether it’s HIIT or meditation, the digital personal trainer can then relay these pointers back to you.
Finally, Sky Live allows you to play interactive games. With Motion Control, you can chop the air in Fruit Ninja or link up with other households for a game of Monopoly.
Sky Live costs £6 a month over 48 months, £12 a month over 24 months, and £290 if you want to pay it all at once.
