Sky’s ground-breaking ‘Project Ethan’ set-top box is ready to be announced shortly, according to widespread media reports over the weekend.

The UK’s Sunday Telegraph said the unit, now dubbed the SkyQ box, will enable users to record four channels at the same time and – at long last – permit subscribers to transfer some programming to mobile devices.

Sky announces its full-year results this week (on July 29) and could use the occasion to make a statement about availability of the set-top box.

The Project Ethan box has been developed to handle 4K transmissions.
