Samsung may be the most popular TV maker on the planet, but Sky definitely wants to squeeze its market share. The company has already launched its new Glass TV which offers full access to all of its channels without the need for a hole-in-the-wall dish. Now, six months after hitting stores, there’s a big incentive to ditch your current gogglebox and take the leap to Glass with Sky offers £100 prepaid Mastercard to anyone who buys one of its smart TVs.
This offer is available on all screen sizes, including 43-inch, 55-inch, and 66-inch, and you can choose to have your TV shipped in many fruity colors such as Dusky Pink, Racing Green, or Ocean Blue.
As well as the £100 Mastercard, those who order Sky Glass will also be offered a £50 Stream Puck without paying a penny for it. This mini streaming box can be plugged into any existing TV you have dotted around the house, bringing the full Sky experience to the screen.
If you weren’t already Sky Glass and the Stream Puck both use your internet connection to stream content around your home. Everything you watch is streamed live with live TV and catch-up services available as part of this platform.

Unlike Sky Q, there’s no hidden hard drive inside, with users adding shows they like to a special playlists section on the home screen. Everything that has already been shown on channels such as BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky Atlantic is then stored via cloud services, with Sky promising almost all content should be available to watch at any time without having to fill out a Hard disk.
Other Sky Glass features include a new remote control with backlit keys and a color-matched design. There’s also a built-in Dolby Atmos soundbar, so you don’t need to buy any additional audio equipment to get a cinema-style experience.
You can also control things via voice search with simple commands to find new shows to watch and even turn on the big screen.
Now you might be wondering how much is all this going to cost you?
Sky Glass itself starts from just £13 per month for the smaller 43-inch screen with things reaching £21 for the 65-inch screen.

One thing to note is that Sky Glass is compatible with all the latest streaming services including Disney+, Apple TV+ and Prime Video.
These all cost extra to watch, but Sky is offering full access to Netflix for free, allowing customers to binge on box sets such as Drive to Survive, Stranger Things and Anatomy of a Scandal.
