      Behind the scenes on the making of Sky Q

      https://corporate.sky.com/media-cent...aking-of-sky-q

      The reaction since we unveiled our brand new, next generation TV service, Sky Q, has been fantastic. We’ve seen real excitement from customers who can’t wait to get their hands on the product, and an incredible reaction from journalists.

      As we get nearer to launch, we wanted to share with you some of the work that went on behind the scenes to bring Sky Q to life – from the customer insight that sits behind it, to the incredible work teams right across Sky have put in to make it a reality.

      We set out to create the world’s best TV experience, and a key part of that was talking to our customers to understand how they really live their lives today – what’s changed from the first days of Sky+ and what’s the same. We learned that the big screen in the living room is still someplace special, and is where it all begins. But it was also clear that all the other screens - from the TV in the second room to the tablet in your bag and the phone in your pocket - are now firmly embedded in our lives.

      To help customers get the most from this new world, Sky Q is reinventing how people watch TV all over again with something we call Fluid Viewing. Fluid Viewing lets you enjoy all those great shows, sports, and movies from Sky across all the screens in our lives. You can pause in one room, and carry on in another, or even on your Tablet. And with Q Sync, for the first time you can even take your recordings with you.

      And while we’ve had some great partners to help us along the way, this amazing experience was designed and developed by some incredible people here at Sky, in the UK.

      With Sky Q, we’ve developed what we think is the world’s best TV viewing experience – and a platform that will get even better in years to come.

      At the end of the day, I think it will come down to price and how many people can afford it. I don't think the average customer will be able to afford it.

      Re: Behind the scenes on the making of Sky Q

      This is true.

      As much as it looks a wonderful new system, and I really do mean that it looks great, it will come down to price.

      There are many people who have Sky TV at home now. The majority now have a Sky+ HD STB.

      Whilst sky have now stated that there will be some content available only through the Sky Q boxes, the majority of the content will be identical to what you can view with a Sky+ HD STB.

      So, at least for now, anyone who is considering getting a Sky Q or Sky Q Silver will need to look at whether it's worth the extra each month, whatever that extra is going to be.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      If the rumor about price is true it is a joke, and IPTV blows it out of the water, just stick a chromecast in each set.

      I'm a bit out of touch on Sky Q pricing rumour. What sort of sort of prices are rumoured to be likely?
