Sky launches new Sky Q multi-room service and set-top box

Sky has launched its massive new service, Sky Q, and set-top box, Sky Q Silver, which allows for fluid viewing of your content across multiple screens in your home.

The new Sky Q Silver set-top box allows you to record up to four separate stations at once as well as watch a fifth, from any room in your home, in a similar fashion to EE’s TV service. That’s great news if your family can never decide on what to watch, giving you the option of spreading yourselves around your house to enjoy your own content.

A new Sky Q app will allow you to stream live TV and recordings from your Sky Q Silver box, or also download your content to your mobile device to watch on the move.

Good news if you have a 4K TV too, as Sky Q is fully 4K compatible, allowing the company to dive into the glorious world of Ultra HD TV. Of course, 4K is likely to cost you more if you want it, when it eventually launches.

Sky Q has plenty of other cool features too, designed to make viewing your content a smooth and seamless experience. For instance, you can pause a show in one room and then immediately pick up where you left off in another.

Expect to see Sky Q and the Sky Q Silver set-top box in early 2016. Expect 4K content to appear ‘later in 2016’.
