sky q silver room

Soon you won't need a satellite dish in order to watch Sky Q. Instead of using a satellite dish – which Sky Q has relied on since launching last February – the service will be delivered over broadband.

This will mean many more households will be able to watch Sky. At the moment, some aren't able to install a satellite dish because of planning permission, or because their landlord won't allow it.

Sky Q will be available via broadband in 2018.

Sky says that there are now more than a million Sky Q boxes in over 600,000 households throughout the UK. It claims that customers are watching 10 per cent more TV than those with Sky+, its previous offering.

Sky no longer sells Sky+ boxes, only Sky Q.

Sky has also launched a new mobile app called My Sky. This lets you check your broadband speed, review your monthly bill, change how and when you pay and get technical support with step-by-step guides and videos.

The company is also ramping up its original content offering. Just recently, it announced two new series, and it currently has more than 100 going into production. Coming soon are the second series of arctic triller 'Fortitude', 'Riviera', 'Gomorrah' and 'Guerrilla'.
