Sky Q review: supreme viewing, even if it doesn't have Ultra HD yet

 

Sky's top-of-the-range service is here and T3.com has now had time with it in one of our own homes.

Multi-screen as it should be ; Slick and easy-to-use ; Resume from anywhere

No Ultra HD yet ; Poor app choice ; Expensive

Sky Q: The evolution of television? - Pocket-lint

 

Sky has announced that it is overhauling its offering in the home, creating a new premium tier service to entice movie, sport and TV viewers to an all-new

As a Sky customer there is lots to like about the new Sky Q system. Even if not, it is likely to turn your head when you are looking for a new TV service to subscribe to.

Sky Q review: Update 5 brings new voice control features to Sky Q and brings back favourites

 

Sky Q is an impressive achievement and the beast premium TV system in the UK, made even better with Premier League and Dolby Atmos

Record up to four channels and watch a fifth ; Full system extends your Wi-Fi ; Responsive, attractive UI

Sometimes crashes ; Touch remote is over-sensitive

If you don't like Sky's mix of content, then Sky Q isn't going to change your mind about signing up and you may be better off with a Now TV subscription for those times you want to watch something on Sky. However, if you love the Sky channels and are a...

Sky Q review

 

Now updated with our verdict on Sky Q's 4K performance

Slick new interface ; Fluid Viewing works brilliantly ; Nice new remote ; 4K looks great – especially movies

Expensive ; Remote can be a little over-sensitive ; Prone to the odd crash

Undoubtedly the best TV experience you can get, but only true telly addicts and early adopters need to dive in right now

Sky Q review

 

Sky Q is as good as television gets, but you have to pay plenty for the privilege

Great content ; Slick new design ; Impressive picture and sound ; Multi-room TV really works ; 4K Ultra HD video

Expensive ; Some features seem a little niche ; Touchpad remote can be fiddly

The future of TV with an impressive price tag to match

Sky Q

 

When Sky rolled out the Sky+ HD box at its last major hardware launch, most of us were still using dumb phones with physical keypads. The PS3 hadn't launched – and, more importantly, Netflix was still mailing out DVDs.

Sky Q review: The all-streaming, all-dancing 4K-ready pay TV system

 

Sky Q has been a long time coming. We review the eagerly awaited Sky Q ahead of the pay TV giant's launch of 4K Ultra HD TV channels later this year.

Fluid menus with logical layouts ; Smart, touch-sensitive controller ; Watch content anywhere with My Q, Fluid Viewing and Sky Go ; Silver box ready to receive 4K channels

It’s not cheap ; WiFi booster feature unavailable to non-Sky Broadband folks ; You don’t get to keep the hardware post-contract ; Not all promised features available from launch

Sky Q review: The best premium TV system adds new features for the 2017/18 Premier League season

 

Sky's premium satellite TV system is pure brilliance

All of which brings me to the final category for comparison: prices. This is a tricky one, since each service brings with it a different set of options and TV packages. It’s difficult to compare each on a like-for-like basis.

Sky Q review: still a work in progress, but already the best Pay-TV service available

 

Cute cat videos on tap change how you'll watch TV forever.

Seamless multiroom experience ; Sky's still the king of content ; Simple, tablet-based downloads for offline, on-the-move viewing

Will make your wallet weep ; Doesn't play nice with Netflix or Amazon Prime Video ; 4K, voice search and powerlining still not ready

Sky Q is the future of TV. It's still a starting point and not the finished article, but upgrade now and you certainly won't regret it. The fluid viewing skills that let you seamlessly take content from room-to-room and device-to-device without fuss...
