Sky Glass and Sky Stream

Thanks for the replies. I’ll give it a go with contract and if it doesn’t fit my needs return it before the trial is up!

Well I did it and signed up, apparently they are giving 2 months of free Stream rather than the 1 it said on the website. Which is a bit of a bonus! Its a bit of janky process I found with the website etc. with details taking ages to update and constant “we’re experiencing technical difficulties” poping up all the time.

Seems to me as if Sky have just invented the Xbox Kinect!

Oh wow, it’s doing things a Discord (other apps are available) video call can do, but you have the advantage that it makes the content smaller, it’s a win-win, plus you need their TV

I don’t forsee this selling well

TBF, I am looking for a new TV to go in a bedroom that currently doesn’t have a TV, which is the exact market Sky Glass is trying to fill

I think I’m still probably better served with a normal OLED TV

The call feature uses Zoom, make of that what you will

You’re going to have to explain what you meant by the insinuation of that.

I am sure all the issues with Zoom during the pandemic are now fixed and it is more secure, but my work used it in the height of the pandemic and I just didn’t like it, constant connection errors, bad video quality, etc

Just comes from a place of bad experience, which I am sure is not there today

Lots of people found it complex and cumbersome to use (at my work place anyway)

but, it won “the war” on team meeting platforms during the pandemic, so a lot of people must’ve preferred it

I hate zoom only marginally less than I hate teams. Worst outcome of the pandemic was online video calling platforms (for me anyway, others experience may/will vary)


So a couple of times I’ve had issues where I’ll be watching something and it will got I ad break. However, it then just get stuck constantly playing ads. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Yes, happened to me during an episode of succession. Only occurred once though.

It’s happened a few times now. Had to hard reset the puck this time to get it to start actually playing the episode.
