Today Sky announced that they plan to bring their Sky Q television service to customers who cannot or don’t want to install a satellite dish on their homes.
The satellite dish has been a border to entry for some time now, a number of homes are unable to install a dish on their homes because they are either listed or they just don’t have permission.
Today Sky announced a new plan to launch a version of their service that will deliver Sky Q over a broadband connection, instead of requiring a satellite connection.
Sky Q already does a lot over your broadband connection with the ability to stream catch-up content over an internet connection, along with the rich metadata in the menu systems.
Soon they plan to expand this with the ability to stream channels live over an internet connection, but they won’t be doing this any time soon.
Sky has said that the Sky Q over broadband service won’t be available until 2018 at least.
However, they did announce something that’s coming today with the launch of a My Sky app that will allows customers to keep track of their bills, broadband speeds, and other account options from their mobile device.
