The next generation of Sky

This is Sky’s Ultra HD Ready Sky Q. Not just a new set top box more a new ‘eco system’.

It’s main new feature is that it will allow IP streaming to multiple devices around the home.

The box is half the size of the exisitng Sky+ box, has a 2TB drive and twelve tuners instead of the exisitng four meaning you can record four channels at the same time rather than the existing two.

A second smaller box will be availble for second room use which, via streaming, can replicate the main boxes experience.

The bad news? Well you’re going to need an upgrade to your aerial dish (LNB swapped) and I suspect deep pockets for the bandwidth required.

See here for the promo.

Personaly we can’t wait.
