What you should know if you are thinking of buying a Sky Glass TV


Sky Glass has been available to buy in the UK for three months, but not everyone has been able to get their hands on one.

Those who have shown an interest in the unique TV have had to wait their turn after its official launch on October 18, 2021.

This is because originally only Sky customers had access to purchase, but this has now changed.

Sky Glass doesn’t rely on a satellite dish or TV box, but instead requires a good, strong broadband connection to feed you channels, including popular Sky shows of course.

Available for a one-time fee or by spreading the cost over a contract term, Sky describes streaming TV as the only one “with Sky and all your favorite apps inside”.

When the TV was first launched, only those who had a Sky VIP Diamond or Platinum account (customers who had been with Sky TV for eight years or more) could buy Sky Glass.

However, at the time Sky said it would slowly roll out its TV to more customers, and now it looks like that has happened.

The company has told us that Sky Glass is now available for all customers, both new and existing, to purchase on Sky.com and in its retail stores.

They say they have seen huge demand for Sky Glass since its launch and continue to be excited about the future.
