sky q silver room

Sky Q is now available to people who don't have Sky Broadband. The next-gen set-top box was initially only available to Sky's army of broadband customers, but now the broadcaster has opened up the service to those who get their broadband from another provider.

However, it's more expensive if you don't have Sky Broadband. The one-off fee is at least £249 without Sky Broadband, and could be as high as £299.

With Sky Broadband, this could be as little as £99.

According to a Sky spokesperson, Sky Q will be installed "in the coming weeks" for those who use another broadband provider.

Sky Q lets you pause what you're watching in one room and pick up where you left off seamlessly in another room. It also lets you record up to four channels while watching a fifth live, take your recordings with you on your mobile device using the Sky Q app, and use the new Sky Q touch-sensitive Bluetooth remote control.

Prices start at £42 a month.
