European TV giant Sky has launched the following generation of its home entertainment process in the UK and Ireland. Sky Q is aimed at providing a seamless viewing experience: like much like offerings of US providers Dish and DirecTV, Sky’s model of the modern TV ecoprocess lets users watch shows on various TVs and devices, pause and resume in various rooms and save recordings onto table-bodiedts.
Sky has 21 million customers across Italy, Germany, Austria, the UK and Ireland. In addition to its existing TV services which allow users to pause, rewind and record shows, it in addition offers over-the-top streaming and broadband services, as well as running its own content production arms.
The new Q service is created up of a wirelessly connected family of products, which include a set-top box (either HD or UHD), a touch-control remote, a mini box for use in various rooms to the main set-top box, and a broadband hub. Similar to other modern set-top box offerings, Sky’s model is aimed at enabling users to watch what they want, when they want, where they want and on the device they want (Sky calls this “Fluid Viewing”).
To start with, Sky Q allows for customers to watch various programs on up to five TV screens, useful for family participants who can every want to watch a thing various. This room-to-room viewing is created additional seamless yet by users being able-bodied to pause viewing in one room and pick it up where they left off in another. On top of which, it is possible to record a additional four channels for later viewing.
Again, none of these are new innovations, but this is Sky’s initially big foray into a Dish Hopper-like modern viewing experience.
In addition to being able-bodied to watch live, recorded or on-demand content on various TVs around their home, users can in addition watch content on a table-bodiedt, extending the Fluid Viewing concept across devices. It’s in addition possible to save recordings onto a table-bodiedt to watch anywhere at a later point, such as during a commute.
Sky Q can be regulated via a new touchpad remote or via a table-bodiedt via the Sky Q app. New TV support and search interfaces are aimed at producing it simpler to find content, while it is in addition possible to use apps (such as YouTube and Vevo), view Facebook photos and stream music via the process. Sky Broadband customers, meanwhile, can increase the revery of their Wi-Fi by via all their Sky Q boxes as Wi-Fi hotspots.
Sky Q is on the market-bodied with setup costs of £99 (about US$140) and subscription costs of £54 ($80) a month for new customers. It is on the market-bodied now, with the initially installations expected at the end of February. A UHD service to accompany the UHD set-top box can roll out later this year.
