At least, that’s what we’ve been led to believe. Interesting that it has HDMI ports, though, so I guess there must be other options available.
It’s got all the major streaming apps.

Sky have a history of including ports you cannot use on their boxes (USB ports come to mind), so unusable had I ports would not be a surprise.

There again it could be that however makes the Sky Glass is using the spec of a TV they currently make and it's easier not to remove them?

Well yes, none of this is particularly revolutionary but OB seems to think it’s going to change how everyone consumes TV.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

If the HDMI ports didn't work then who'd want a TV they can't plug their dvd or blu ray player into?

But doesn't that work via Bluetooth? Don't think you can connect a dvd player or blu ray player to TV via Bluetooth? So not the same comparison,is it?

I don’t think you do actually, unless you pay the Sky Glass subscription.

Ultimately, it will all be IPTV.

Incidentally, neither the Sky channels nor the streamers are free. Premium content has to be paid for, that’s pretty obvious.
