The next thing I buy by choice ie if my existing tv lasts is a short throw projector and one of those really nice none reflective screens but that is years off my pocket hahahaha
I have just read the review - it states the screen is a Panasonic

The thing I was most interested in was the recording side of Glass - this was not mentioned at all (I have been told it can to the cloud - in which case I would want to know how long a recording would be available for)

I believe I read an article that said all OLED are either LG or produced by others under license to LG.

Re: Sky Glass TV

The Sky Glass TV is made by TP Vision who make Philips TV sets

Quote:
The panel itself is supplied by TP Vision, the company behind Philips TVs. It combines the quantum dot technology made famous by Samsung's QLED TVs with a direct LED backlight. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Sky isn't getting into specifics such as the number of dimming zones Sky Glass has, or its peak brightness figures.

I suspect that they were referring to the Smart TV functionality disappearing if you cancelled Sky, leaving you with just the terrestrial channels via aerial.

I agree that as the TV has HDMI, you must be able to use streaming sticks and alternative boxes.

Re: Sky Glass TV

Suspect given the entrenched poverty caused by energy prices, Universal Credit cuts, etc that Sky don’t want to be advertising interest free TVs to non-subscribers. Especially in the early days. Hence the lack of specificity.

It'll work as a freeview tv once you cancel subscription, notes we have say you'll still be able to use Netflix, prime etc but noth SKQ itself.
You can connect 3 devices via the HDMI ports, if you have a hdmi switch/splitter you can ofcourse connect more devices, it does work with VM boxes no problems, however if you're staying with VM you'd be better of buying a standard smart tv, the SKY glass isn't all that from what we've been told in office.
I'm yet to see one but we're having a demo one in this week so i'll hopefully have more info then unless only the oompa loompas upstairs get the demo.

Re: Sky Glass TV

I'd think about the 43" for our bedroom as don't currently have one there.

It's got decent specs and a soundbar built in. So wall mounting it would mean only having a power cable to hide.

In that respect its brilliant.

I think Legendkiller2k is referencing something they've seen at work and can't talk about yet.

Sand basically being part of glass production is just humourous way to say it's a Virgin Media branded TV product.
