Sky shared another teaser ahead of their hit launch event next month. The satellite TV company hinted earlier this month that something “magical” would be revealed in October, and now it’s being teased that “it’s almost time” for customers to find out exactly what the teams are about. from Sky have worked.
In a message just sent to the media – including Express.co.uk – Sky said: “Hello, it’s almost time. The magic is about to be revealed.”
Along with this tease, Sky has again confirmed that everything will be revealed on October 7, 2021. In addition to this invitation, the satellite TV company also posted a short clip on YouTube that continues the magical theme with a quote from Arthur C. Clarke which reads: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
So what could all this hype mean for customers?
It’s unclear if Sky plans to upgrade its award-winning Q box, add new features to its remote, or launch a slew of new channels and content. One rumor that is gaining momentum is that Sky is finally considering launching its new set-top box that doesn’t need a dish stuck to the walls.
Since 2017, the company has promised a major upgrade that would allow customers to access this popular platform, which offers razor-sharp 4K content and the ability to record multiple channels at once, via a broadband connection. This option is already available in Germany and the UK could be next on the list.
Express.co.uk recently revealed that this TV via broadband update, dubbed the Sky Q IP Box, is being tested in some UK homes.
All channels are streamed directly to TVs via an internet connection with the box capable of streaming in Full HD quality – our source also revealed that Ultra HD may also be available soon.

There is also the ability to record up to 1,000 hours of TV via the cloud and there are all the usual options, including access to Sky Cinema, Sports and Entertainment. Another cool feature of the Sky Q IP Box is that it is much smaller than the standard device, which should mean it fits perfectly under the TV.
We’ll have to wait and see exactly what Sky has in store for us, but if you want to know more, you only have a few weeks to wait.
