Sky to unveil 4K STB next month?

October 30, 2015

Sky is set to unveil its next generation Sky STB on November 18th. A cryptic invite to a product launch invites journalists to “see how we’re changing TV again”, and introduces the hashtag #SetTVFree.

Tentatively dubbed “SkyQ”, the STB is reported to offer multi-screen viewing so family members can each watch different shows on varying screens, allowing up to 4 different channels to be watched (or recorded) simultaneously. The box should also offer live TV and catch-up streaming in the same place so jumping between the two will appear seamless. The box will be 4K ready and will also support HDR and HFR to make it future-proof.

A teaser video can be viewed here.
