Sky Glass TVs presented with QLED 4K resolutions, integrated soundbars and support for a Microsoft Kinect-style accessory
Sky has introduced Glass, a trio of QLED TVs with smart TV capabilities. The Sky Glass series will be available as 43-inch, 55-inch and 65-inch TVs, all with voice control remotes and integrated soundbars. Sky has not confirmed which TV partner has built the TVs, although all panels are UHD Quantum Dot ones.
Additionally, the Sky Glass series supports Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision, HDR 10 and HLG with three HDM1 2.1 ports and a USB Type-C connection for I/O. Moreover, each TV includes six speakers totalling 215 W.
Sky will sell its Glass TVs individually or a Sky Ultimate TV subscription. According to Sky, the 43-inch model costs £649 or £13 across 48 months. Similarly, the 55-inch TV is £17 per month or £849, and the 65-inch TV is £21 per month or £1,049. However, all subscribers must also pay £26 per month for Sky's subscription service.
All TVs will be compatible with a Sky Glass 4K webcam too that supports motion controls for use with 'family games'. Sky has collaborated with Microsoft to create the webcam, which the former hopes will allow you to watch TV with others, such as sports matches. In short, the Sky Glass 4K webcam is the revival of Microsoft Kinect but for TVs.
Sky Glass TVs will be swappable for newer models, as well. The company is yet to flesh this out though, nor the software experience of its 4K webcam. Sky Glass will be available outside the UK, albeit under different brands. Foxtel Group in Australia has already partnered with Sky, for example, which Sky claims is the first of many Glass TV partnerships.
