Sky Glass drops to ‘best EVER’ price in new sale
Sky Glass has been slashed to its “best price” in the latest sale. If you’re looking for one of the best Sky deals, this is it. For those don’t know, Sky Glass is an all-in-one solution that boasts everything you need to watch live Sky TV channels without a satellite dish. Instead, everything is streamed over Wi-Fi in up to 4K Ultra HD.
There’s also a Dolby Atmos soundbar built into this QLED television, which is available in either 43-inch, 55-inch, or 65-inch screen sizes. If you add Sky Glass to your shopping basket during the latest sale, you’ll save almost £100 over the course of your contract. The bundle includes the 4K QLED TV itself, as well as access to 300 live Sky TV channels, 500 on-demand boxsets, and a Netflix subscription.
Sky Glass, announced last year, is the first product from the television firm that doesn’t require a satellite dish. While the older Sky Q box, which is still on sale, relies on a satellite dish drilled into the outside of your home and a spinning hard-drive inside the set-top box to record TV shows, movies and sports fixtures …Sky Glass is something new.
You’ll only need to deal with a single cable – the power cord – at the back of Sky Glass. Everything else is wireless.
Live television channels are streamed over your Wi-Fi network, with support for 4K Ultra HD, HDR, and Dolby Atmos sound where available from the broadcasters. Unlike Sky Q, there’s no hard-drive – so you don’t need to worry about running out of storage and deleting treasured recordings to save the latest episode of an ongoing series. Instead, shows are collated from across catch-up and streaming services into a new feature, dubbed Playlist.
This means that when you record the latest episode in an ongoing series, like Top Gear, Sky Glass’ Playlist will automatically scour the streaming and catch-up services baked into its software to bring together all previous series into a single, seamless menu. So you’ll be able to access hundreds of episodes, without logging in and searching different apps to find individual episodes. Voice search works across live channels from Sky, on-demand boxsets, Sky Store, and streaming apps like Netflix, Disney+ and Prime Video.
Sky Glass has never seen a price drop before. Until now, Sky has resisted dropping the price of its all-in-one 4K TV in favour of bundling extras and freebies with the telly.
But that’s changed in the latest round of deals from the satellite broadcaster. While the 43-inch Sky Glass TV starts from £13 per month, you’ll need to pair it with a selection of channels to watch anything on your shiny new gogglebox. The basic Sky TV package, which combines 300 live channels including exclusives like Sky Atlantic with 500 on-demand boxsets and Netflix, starts from £26 per month.
While you’d usually spend £39 per month for a brand-new Sky Glass TV and oodles of live and on-demand content to watch, Sky has dropped the cost to just £37 per month. Over the course of the contract, you’ll save £96, which Sky says is the “best price” it has ever offered for its 4K TV.

And Glass isn’t the only deal available from Sky at the moment. For a limited time, Sky has frozen prices on its popular Sky Q bundle. This includes a Sky Q set-top box – that earned a maximum five stars in our Sky Q review – with 300 live satellite channels, 500 on-demand boxsets, a Netflix subscription to watch anywhere, and Superfast Sky broadband.
Priced at £43 per month, Sky has pledged to freeze your monthly bills for the next 18-months, so you won’t see an annual price rise in the new year.
In fact, you can guarantee that you’ll only ever pay £43 per month until 2024. At a time when every other household bill is sure to spiral during that same period, this is a welcome guarantee from Sky. The same price freeze has also been applied to a number of standalone broadband deals. Our comprehensive guide has all of the best Sky deals.
