Sky Launches Sky Glass

Amidst the laser light roof, the gargantuan screens, the intimate staging and a custom song from Griff, Sky launched their first foray into the TV market with ‘Sky Glass’ with glitzy abandon at Magazine in North Greenwich. A TV they have designed and built with Sky built-in.

Glass is Sky in a TV and is a beautiful bit of kit, made from anodised aluminium with a woven mesh frame. The TV packs a punch thanks to the Dolby Atmos sound and 4k Ultra HD Quantum Dot – colours are crisp and good for films. Available in Small (43″), Medium (55″) and Large (65″), the TV senses when you are close and turns on, or lift the remote and the device springs to life. Best of all? Glass is available in five colours (Blue, pink, green, white and black) and multiple magnetic front covers (starting at £39) which offer you further personalisation options.

The user interface is also getting an update to align with what Netflix and Amazon have known for a while; pictures say more than masses of lines of shortened text, so say bye-bye to the hideous TB Guide. The unit comes with a stand or wall bracket, and Sky will help you install it and take away the cardboard box. Sky also announced that the Sky Stream puck (£50) will mimic the content across other screens in your home, so there is no need to buy six TVs.

Sky also teased a product that’s due to come out in 2022 – a camera unit that sits on top of the box that tech people will liken to Xbox Kinect (RIP) and Amazon’s many attempts at getting in your bedroom (Amazon Look etc). The device will enable you to play games, work out, connect with family and friends via Zoom and a whole lot more besides thanks to skeletal scanning. The tiny box will do many more things besides these and will have a lot of privacy and data issues to contend with before consumers adopt this.

Sadly, Glass still requires you to have a remote (although Sky has made it smaller and paired down the number of buttons), the future, for now at least, is voice and a few buttons. the design will melt into walls rather than stand out and offers superb sound and picture quality.

Pricing-wise, Glass is priced to flood the market, £39 a month if you purchase with an interest-free loan (Sky Glass + Sky Ultimate TV) or purchase in one go starting at £649 for the small unit, £849 for Medium and £1,049 for the large version. Delivery is within 3-5 days starting October 18th.
