Sky has confirmed plans to offer a standalone streaming device which brings together live channels and popular catch-up and streaming apps later this year.
The Sky Stream Puck initially launched alongside the broadcaster’s new Sky Glass smart TV to allow subscribers to watch TV in additional rooms but will soon be available to buy on its own.
Unlike its traditional set top boxes, both Sky Glass and the Sky Stream Puck receive channels via broadband rather than a dish.
In addition to Sky’s own on-demand content and line-up of sports, movie and entertainment channels, both devices offer access to Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV+ plus iPlayer, ITV Hub, and All4 as well as linear channels from major broadcasters. Neither device records programmes but instead direct users to the relevant catch-up or on-demand app.
Pricing and availability for the standalone Sky Stream Puck have not been confirmed.
