Sky Q Advice.

Looking for information on Sky Q, we currently don't have sky anything and use BT TV inc the UHD BT sports channels.

We are looking to move and the property we fancy isn't served by a great broadband signal although the cabinet is fibre activated we would be too far to benefit and estimates are about 3Mbs which wouldn't boil a kettle. So the alternative is go to Sky.

I have read up on Sky Q but cant find the nitty gritty stuff such are their UHD programs delivered by satellite or over the internet or are they a hybrid, I am aware that you can download content to watch in HD or UHD but I am more concerned with live games, I have this vision of entering the fa cup in the 3rd round and the final already being played before the download is complete, not that we will beyond the 3rd round I might add.

I would also ask how well the multi room works as it is wi fi as opposed to cabled.

Apologies the thread isn't about Turkey, Ukraine, Russia, Brexit, dinner time, dogs or smoking, oh or the price of Efes.

Re: Sky Q Advice.

I have sky Q and it is brilliant. Sky Q yes has the facility to have Ultra HD if you get a 2 terabyte box you can record 6 program's and watch a 7th. The multi-room is great and you can move the mini box to any room that has a TV as it is WI-fi the mini box takes the signal from the main box through WI-fi
There is an offer on just now on Sky .com to have Sky Q and Fibre broadband at 39mbps or more depending on choice for 40 you can have the BB faster if you wish. The multi room will cost you 12 pm extra. You can also watch TV on 4 devices as well including tablets and phones with Sky Go. Great system.

Cheers Juco,

I know what it can do, just struggling to find out how it does it, if the UHD relies on the internet then it won't work and that's the problem.

Re: Sky Q Advice.

I would phone Sky technical and discuss they are normally quite helpful.

We have sky TV and Virgin broadband so don't know if that makes a difference.

Maybe this helps.

Re: Sky Q Advice.

So I managed to talk with “John” in India, I asked the relevant questions, he gave me a price and wanted to know when they could install it ! So did a load more googling and it looks like you only need basic internet for initial set up and full blown for downloading box sets, Johns on commission so expecting a call back.
