The rise and success of digital streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and HBO Go challenged the TV industry. They have learned to set themselves apart with expansive libraries, original content, curated feeds, and access for multiple devices. You are never too late to watch a show. You can create lists for things you want to watch. You can stay away for weeks on end and not be bothered by what you are missing. You can come back anytime and binge-watch the accumulated episodes. Sky Q was Sky Group‘s solution for the shift in watching habits.
What Is Sky Q?
Sky Q is a range of products that enhances your premium TV experience. They pair their channels and shows with tech that allows you to watch from multiple sources. There can be three to four TVs in HD, and there would be no dip in quality.
What Are The Sky Q Devices?
The number of devices will depend on the bundle that you choose to get for your Sky Q installation. The main components that are the same across the board are the Sky Q box, Sky Q mini box, and the Sky Hub. The Sky Q touch remote and the 2TB Sky Q box extra features for those who want to buy into the complete experience.
The 1TB or 2TB Skybox is the heart of the setup, and it is the one connected to main lines like your satellite dish. The Sky Q mini boxes are devices that allow the rest of the home to be connected to channels and shows available. They are the new and improved version of the 2006 Sky multiroom.
Lastly, the Sky Hub connects the box and mini box and improves the connection so that there is no dip in quality. You can also avail of the Sky broadband for other supported products in the Sky ecosystem.
Like everything else with Sky, you can choose different bundles and upgrades depending on your desired viewing experience. The 2TB Sky Q box has more storage and can save more shows while you watch. The switch to 2TB also comes with additional channels, more room, more shows. Of course, this would also mean shelling out more.
The Sky Q touch remote was their answer to transitioning to touch and voice-activated devices. There is a trackpad that you can use to swipe through the different channels much as you would do with Netflix. Sky does not just improve their overall services; they take note about what makes new tech succeed and work towards innovating similar products.
