Sky Glass

Surely none since they don’t actually change ownership until they’re paid off? 🤔

I can see the attraction, a big flat screen telly with built in soundbar and you don’t have to save up for it, you can get it for £15 a month, doubtless even with an utter shite credit history that stops you financing a normal TV, but which Sky isn’t too worried about because even dole scummers want to watch the footy.

I think I’ll stick to my proper TV thanks.

Well I guess I’m one of the losers that has given it a go. Arrived today and managed to get it set up.
initial impressions, it’s not bad. The user experience isn’t as fluid as I’d like, but maybe it is because it’s new. Few teething issues which I’m hoping will get sorted soon and hopefully again may be because it’s new and only just set up. The tv sound quality is great and the picture quality is great too. Our 5 year old lg was showing signs of age so thought I’d give it a try.
the worst part was the puck. I expected it to be as easy and simple as the skyQ mini box to get working but not quite.
I’ll keep this thread updated with how I get on. Going to be a change to get used to without the recordings etc, but I’ve got 200mbps broadband so streaming shouldn’t be an issue. Fingers crossed.

One of the best bits about having recordings is the ability to fast forward through all the adverts. I take it you can't do that with Glass?

Interesting... I wonder how much they will charge after that.
It's £5 per month thereafter however I presume new contracts / deals will come out and you'll never end up paying that £5.

I've ordered the large one in black today. Current sky package is £69 per month, same sky package when contract is up next month will go to £125, ordered the large TV with everything I have currently for £81 per month.

Is that £81 just TV package or broadband too?

Finance of the TV £21, sky package (everything bar sports) £60

Currently paying £69 for sky Q, everything bar sports.

Don't have internet with Sky.


Interestingly getting the finance for the TV works out cheaper than buying the TV outright

That sounds decent.

There are plenty customers like for like package is cheaper with glass. Because you don’t pay for HD now and plenty are paying more for signature on Q.

I think the big difference will be the flexibility for customers. That price is without discount (12 months ad skipping apart) and in a rolling 31 day contract. It’s a different concept to the discounting and contracts on sky Q

See, this is where Sky pricing is absolutely mental, just plucked out of the air.

I have Q and I pay £69 for everything including sports and fibre. Granted it was an offer and I'll have to re negotiate again at the end of my term but they pretty much matched my last deal and threw in a newer router for me.

How long have you been with sky? My dad has had it 13 years and get obscene deals when renewing, I've been with them 5 years and it appears to be a struggle each time.

Happy with the deal I have, if the TV is crap I can send it back and go to Q again

It was my first renewal. I'd previously been with them but they wouldn't budge so I went to BT. Told Sky this when I wanted to stay on (Sky is lightyears ahead of BT with everything IMO) and the woman came back with £100 maybe instead of the £145 it would have been. I ended up getting it down to £69 eventually which I'm happy with.

Well I’ve had my large tv and one puck for a week now. The TV is quite impressive, little laggy at times, which is really annoying as I’ve got 200mb broadband, (I feel it’s because it’s VM and not sky!) the puck however is an absolute pig of a nightmare! Every time I turn it on, it won’t connect for a few minutes, then will lose connection! I practically have to unplug it each time to get it to work. I’m hoping this is something that will be sorted out soon, because the skyQ rarely dropped signal!
I am concerned about the tv though, there seems to be a shadow when the screen is dark across one side, I can’t replicate it when I try though, so I’ll keep an eye on it.
