sky q split screen

Sky has added some new features to its Sky Q set top boxes, designed to make it easier for sports fans to follow the latest action.

The Sports Split Screen: Live Streams function allows Sky Q customers to watch two live streams side-by-side.

Users can tailor their match choices so they can watch two football or tennis matches at the same time.

Alternatively, they can choose Race Choice to follow a Formula 1 race from different camera angles.

Sky Q has also unveiled the Sports Split Screen: Video Clips function, which lets users catch up on highlight video clips from the Premier League or Formula 1 while continuing to watch the live action.

Luke Bradley-Jones, Brand Director of TV and Content Products at Sky, commented: "We know our customers absolutely love watching live sports and the new Sky Q features will give them the flexibility to choose how they watch. 

"Whether it’s a Premier League match or Formula 1 race, customers can simply choose split screen viewing and watch the most talked about goal again and again, or two live races side by side."

Sky Q users can already customise their home page with their favourite football team and use the Sky Sports HQ app to follow the latest scores and tables, as well as watch highlight clips from Sky Sports News.

A host of new features were added to the next generation home entertainment system earlier this summer, including Auto Play and Auto Download Next Episode functions, along with a Series Record feature, more recommendations for On Demand shows and PIN protection for online video clips.

Customers can expect further upgrades in the future, as Sky has confirmed that a Sports Start Over feature will be introduced next year.

Furthermore, it hopes to launch a Voice Search function and personalise the Top Picks feature in the future.

"All of these changes reflect Sky’s commitment to giving customers innovative new ways to watch more of the best TV, from live sports to original Sky drama, blockbuster movies and the best from the US," Sky said.
