Powered by WiFi, not satellite.
Sky’s plug and play product, Sky Stream, has officially released today.
With Sky Stream, you can order and install yourself, with it being able to work on any television.
It works as it would an Amazon Fire Stick or other smart stick, plugging into the mains and then into a TV with a HDMI cable. Just turn it on and connect to your home WiFi network.
To add to the flexibility of Stream’s nature, a 31-day rolling contract option has also become available, as opposed to the traditional 18-month contract, but there is a price difference. The basic Sky Ultimate TV & NEtflix package will still cost £26 a month with an 18-month contract, but will increase to £29 if you opt to go with the rolling contract. There are also price differences for each add-on as shown below:
The upfront cost differs between the contracts also - £39.95 a month for the rolling contract or just £20 for the 18-month contract.
Sky Stream is basically the dish-free technology seen inside of Sky Glass, but has been extracted to make it more appealing to other consumers who would not wish to part with their existing televisions. Because of this, Sky Stream users can enjoy features that Sky Glass customers would, such as the Sky Glass UI and voice remote.
