Sky has integrated hardware, software and content into Sky Glass and marketing it as a “no dish, no box, no fuss” set. Developed by parent Comcast Corporation, it connects through Wi-Fi and it is the only TV incorporating Sky programming that is available through built-in apps. Other streaming services integrated within include BBC iPlayer, Netflix, Disney+, ITV Hub, AII4, Spotify, Peloton and PlayWorks. Voice control is also supported.
Sky Glass takes the form of a 4K Ultra HD TV set based on Quantum Dot technology that produces over one billion colours to deliver crystal clear pictures, while the 10-bit HDR screen technology supports HLG, HDR10 and Dolby Vision to produce more vibrant and intense colour. Sky Glass comes in three sizes, 43”, 55” and 65”, and five colours.
Sky Glass is the world’s first TV to be certified CarbonNeutral. Sustainably designed, it has low power features built-in, such as auto switch-off and auto-adjusting screen brightness, making it more energy efficient.
In 2022, Sky is looking to offer more products and services for Sky Glass including new channels and new shows with Peacock, Paramount+ and more. It will also launch a high specification 4K smart camera that works seamlessly with Sky Glass to unlock a range of exciting new services for the whole family. It will transform how viewers chat, play games, workout and share entertainment at home.
Sky Glass is available in the UK from October 18 and will be launched in other European markets from 2022.
