Sky is launching a new streaming TV that eliminates the need for a Sky antenna and external box.
The new Sky glass is designed so that it can compete with other TV manufacturers such as Sony and Samsung, who already bundle Sky content with their products, and is described as “no frills” streaming TV.
CEO Dana Strong said: “Sky Glass is the streaming TV with Sky inside and offers complete integration of hardware, software and content.”
Sky has also claimed that the Glass would be the world’s first carbon neutral television.
While you can pre-register now, the TV will be available in the UK from October 18th.
