Sky confirms Sky Q availability
February 9, 2016
Sky has confirmed that Sky Q, its next generation home entertainment system, is now available to buy.
Following Sky Q’s unveiling in November 2015, now both existing Sky customers and those new to Sky can buy it online or over the phone from today. They’ll also be able to purchase through one of Sky’s 250 retail outlets up and down the country from February 12th.
The first Sky Q customers will be installed at the end of the month and will get a full professional installation as part of the set-up cost to ensure they benefit from the features of Fluid Viewing.
Sky Q goes on sale with Sky’s lowest ever set-up cost for a brand new premium product launch. Set-up costs will be from just £99 (€130). Customers can choose from two new bundles – the Sky Q Silver Bundle or the Sky Q Bundle. The typical monthly cost for existing Sky+ customers will only be around an extra £12 compared with their current Sky+ package. For new customers joining Sky, the ongoing monthly cost for Sky Q will start from just £42.
The launch of Sky Q will be supported by Sky’s biggest and most ambitious advertising campaign ever, which starts nationwide from Friday 12 February with key spots including the Mr. Selfridge ad break.
All customers who already have Sky Broadband or who purchase Sky Broadband when buying Sky Q will also receive the brand new Sky Q Hub that turns Sky Q boxes into Wi-Fi hotspots, giving a supercharged Sky Broadband experience with the strongest and best coverage throughout the home. Sky Q installations will be phased with Sky Broadband customers receiving the product first, before very soon opening up to those with other broadband providers.
