Sky launches Stream, its latest shift away from satellite

European PayTV broadcaster and streamer Sky has today launched a new product called Sky Stream in the UK. Available now from Sky commerce channel, the company called it “the most affordable way to get Sky TV and Netflix together, with combined packages from £26 a month”.

Sky Stream enables users to stream content straight to any TV over Wi-Fi, without a dish, so there is no installation required. A plug-in device, it provides access to over 150 channels and 100,000 hours of aggregated content. Following on from the introduction of Sky Glass, it’s a further illustration of Sky decoupling its business from satellite dishes.

In addition to the low price, the product is flexible – with a 31-day rolling plan that can be cancelled at any time. Compact in size, it uses the same smart user interface as Sky Glass, making watching TV simple and quick.

The device comes with a £39.95 set-up fee, or £20 for customers that take an 18-month contract). Sky Stream is compatible with any broadband provider, with a minimum speed of 10Mbps required.
