      From just £99! Not many takers at that price I'm thinking, £1200 a year you could get a years subscription to Netflex,Amazon prime and Now tv and still have over £600 in your pocket.

      Re: Sky Q

      what I would like to know is, on feb 9th will I be able to place an order for the new sky broadband router to replace my sr102? if so anyone know how much? If I remember rightly when the latest once came out a few years back it was around £60.

      I'm hoping so. I think Scubbie suggested it would be £40.

      This is the price quoted from the webinar.

      The Sky Q Hub should be available from 9th February, looking at the information posted earlier. I can't say at this time whether you'll be able to just get the Q Hub without a Q TV package at the same time for that price.

      At this time I still don't have any specification details regarding WiFi for any of the new boxes, other than they all support both 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

      It would be lovely to see the GUI too. I'd hate to think that it was the same as the SR102.

      Re: Sky Q

      Sorry, yes I've got a hard copy of the spec sheets.

      However what is the connection & transmission speed of the WiFi?

      Also no one currently know what the PowerLine AV1.1 speed is.

      Can't wait to see a teardown of the box.

      I think its an ok price.
