New product launch from Sky?

Any ideas what Sky might be announcing on November 18th?  SkyQ box with 4k perhaps?

I assumed it was the new set top box rumoured several months ago which will let you transfer saved shows to a mobile or tablet thus "setting you free"

Given that Sky was beaten by BT at being first to launch 4K content (albeit mainly football). 4K would be my guess too!

I'm going for cloud based recordings which can be transfered from the Sky+ box and 4K capacity.

 

However I suspect the new product will be to ensure less churn from existing customers than adding new ones.

Networking Spec - ISP: TalkTalk VDSL2 @ 76mbps | NOW TV Smart Box 4K wired connected, Amazon Fire Stick 4K Wired, Chromecast 3rd Gen WiFi, Samsung Galaxy A50 (Android Pie), Fire Tablet (2018 edition), Dell PC with Windows 10 Home Edition using Now TV Player.

Nor will it improve already quite poor internet speeds. Now works as it seems to only need a fairly slow internet speed.

Re: New product launch from Sky?

I'm more interested in whether we will see a new up to date sky hub rather than the SR102 still using last gen technology. I hope we also get an update on now to maybe a couple extra channels on the entertainment package to compete with the likes of TV Player plus

Every one else is expecting 4K with out fibre broadband being required...

As it will Download/Preload via DISH... Anytime content expansion to 4K from 1080i... as well as live broadcasts...

 

And much more as the new box is expected to be announced...
