Having more and more content available has given us much more choice, but how many times have we wasted time looking for content to watch? In a world where time is precious, Sky Stream now makes everything simpler and more immediate. It is in fact the only box that integrates content, both live and on demand, from Sky, the main free-to-air channels and apps. And from June 3rd, choosing from the many contents available will be quick and easy. Sky Stream brings the simple and intuitive interface of Sky Glass to your home screen. The Entertainment OS software – developed thanks to Comcast’s cutting-edge technology – is in fact the same as the Sky Glass TVs but is now available in a small and handy box that transforms the television experience of all TVs equipped with an HDMI port. Every television will thus become even smarter. The time spent searching for content will therefore become a distant memory and it will no longer be necessary to know which platform that series or film is available on. With Sky Stream, all Sky content from the main apps – including Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, DAZN, RaiPlay, Discovery+, Paramount+, Apple TV+ and Mediaset Infinity – as well as the main free-to-air channels, will finally be visible in a single interface, also controllable by voice. For example, just say the name of your favorite actor to see his films and series available on the various platforms appear all together.

Sky Stream is simple in every way

Everything will always be at hand between the various rails starting from the homepage, without having to switch from one app to another or navigate to different interfaces. To ensure you don’t miss even a minute of your favorite programme, it will also be possible to pause the TV and, with the Restart function, restart the program on air from the beginning, even live and on the main free-to-air channels. Creating your own personalized schedule becomes child’s play. Each member of the family will have a personal playlist at their disposal, where they can collect their favorite contents from all platforms and access them at any time. Sky Stream also supports the 4K standard so you can enjoy the emotions live on Sky Sport 4K and see the many on-demand content available in maximum definition.

Sky’s innovations

Sky Stream is just the latest of Sky’ s innovations, which offers various solutions for accessing its extraordinary content offering. Sky Glass is the all-in-one solution for those who want to have everything in a single TV, without wires, decoder and satellite dish, with exceptional audio-video quality and cutting-edge software. However, those who cannot or do not want to change their TV can now choose Sky Stream so as not to give up the interface that makes everything even more “smart”. For those who don’t yet have a fast connection, there is Sky Q via satellite, while those who prefer the flexibility of an over-the-top service can opt for NOW, the streaming app with the most varied offering on the market. Added to all this are Sky Wifi, the most stable fixed network in Italy according to Ookla®, and the new mobile offer Sky Mobile powered by Fastweb.

“In a world where people have more and more choice, nearly half of consumers say they have difficulty deciding what to watch. Precisely for this reason – the words of Andrea Duilio, CEO of Sky Italia – Sky Glass was born which, with its cutting-edge operating system, allows you to solve this problem and save time. Today, with Sky Stream, we bring this innovative experience to any TV, giving everyone the opportunity to find the right content across the various platforms in a simple and immediate way. Choosing what to see will be really easy for everyone.” The arrival of Sky Stream will be accompanied by a communication campaign planned across all media, which will be revealed close to the commercial launch.
