Sky could let you watch TV WITHOUT a dish as it teases ‘magical’ announcement

SKY is about to host a major press event – and could debut an “internet-powered” box.

It would mean that you could watch Sky TV WITHOUT having a satellite dish on your home.

The mystery event is around three weeks away, but it’s already being teased by Sky.

In an invitation sent to The Sun, Sky said: “The magic is coming…”.

The event is due to take place on October 7, in the morning.

But Sky is keeping mum about exactly what is in store.

Popular gadget site Pocketlint has suggested that Sky could announce an internet-powered Sky box.

Current Sky boxes do use the internet to stream some content – but a satellite dish is necessary for full service and setup.

Sky already offers a TV-over-internet service called Sky Go, but it requires an existing Sky service to work.

Importantly, Sky offers a full internet-only TV package – but it’s only available in Germany.

It’s entirely possible that a similar product could be launched in the UK.

Installing a Sky dish isn’t always ideal.

Some people don’t like how they look, and others are unable to install them.

And having to make changes to your property just to watch TV feels like a relic of the past.

The German service is a full Sky Q offering – albeit over the internet.

That means you can still watch regular channels, and even record content.

And you still get access to the same catch-up and on-demand apps like Netflix and Disney+.

Of course, it’s unclear if Sky would announce a similar or identical product here.

There’s no word on pricing either, so it could be cheaper, less expensive or the same as the satellite option.

Sky will reveal more about its plans on October 7 – and The Sun will be reporting live as it happens.
