Sky Ireland has announced that Sky’s new TV, Sky Glass, will officially launch in Ireland on Thursday, 25th August 2022, allowing customers to get Sky TV over WiFi – removing the need for a satellite dish or set-top box.
Sky Ireland CEO, JD Buckley, said: “Following its hugely successful launch in the UK, we are thrilled to announce that Ireland will be the second market to launch Sky Glass. The launch of Sky Glass here marks a significant milestone in Sky’s 25-year history in Ireland and follows our recent announcement that Sky Mobile is coming to Ireland in 2023, as well as the opening of our four new flagship retail stores", he said.
“Investing in the best technology, the best content and the best customer experience are always our top priorities and Sky Glass is the most innovative product we have developed yet. It opens the world of Sky to customers who may not have been able to access Sky TV before now. With the ability to stream the best content and apps over WiFi, Sky Glass features Ultra HD, Quantum Dot technology and 360° Dolby Atmos® sound. Sky Glass will be available in Ireland from August 25th, but we are giving customers the opportunity to pre-register for Sky Glass now,” he added.
Sky Glass comes in a choice of three sizes (Small 43”, Medium 55” and Large 65”) and five rich colours, Ocean blue, Ceramic white, Racing green, Dusky pink, or Anthracite black, with matching remote and speaker fascia. It has a mounting bracket cleverly integrated into the TV, or a sleek colour matched stand. With a single plug, Sky Glass makes cable clutter a thing of the past, while the woven acoustic mesh used to optimise sound performance and millimetre-perfect perforations, help Sky Glass sound as good as it looks.
Bringing all audience favourite shows, apps and channels together in one place, Sky Glass eliminates wasted time trekking from app to app. With the new plus button on the Sky Glass remote, customers can create their own personal playlist, allowing them to enjoy content any time they want – whether it’s a Sky Original, from live TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney+.
