Apple TV+ to Launch on Sky Glass and Sky Q Later This Year

Sky UK (Sky Broadband) has today announced that customers of their Sky Q TV and Sky Glass TV service and devices will, by the end of 2021, finally be able to get access to Apple TV+ content. NOW TV users in the UK will also be able to both sign-up and purchase any NOW Membership via the NOW app on Apple’s devices.

The new long-term agreement also means that customers in the UK will be able to access Sky Go on Apple TV devices, albeit not until mid-2022. In line with Sky’s other streaming partnerships, Apple TV+ will be “seamlessly integrated into the Sky experience to make content easy to discover and enjoy.”

Dana Strong, Group Chief Executive of Sky, said: “With the addition of Apple TV+ our customers can now enjoy phenomenal shows like The Morning Show, Trying and Ted Lasso, together with our own award-winning Sky Originals, and the best content and apps from our partners, all on Sky Glass, the streaming TV from Sky, or Sky Q, our market-leading Sky box.”

    Read this as the other way around and was way more exited. Fingers cross we see the “Sky Glass” experience as an app soon.

    1. Jack says:

      If only they had launched the Q / Glass app first. Glass TV is really aimed at NowTV customers. Why anyone with Q would swap I have no idea apart from the 4k pucks

  2. Kyle says:

    Comcast announced this on their earnings call, so it only seemed natural that Sky would adopt it.

  3. WonkoTheSaneUK says:

    The shows mentioned may be good, but I’d get it for Foundation & For All Mankind.
    Sky are also starting to offer other US streaming services like Peacock & Paramount+.

    Apple TV is available on most smart tv’s anyway, it’s certainly available on my Samsung TV

    I never use the Netflix option on Sky Q because again, it’s available on my smart tv’s

    1. Winston Smith says:

      I think the whole point of Sky Glass is that it’s not a collection of apps.

  5. Kevin says:

    Can’t record on it so that’s bad

    1. Ray Woodward says:

      WHY would you need to record it ?

      It is available ondemand ?

      Does anyone else offer an Apple tv app. that offers ‘record’ ..?

  6. Spurple says:

    Apple TV is now available pretty much everywhere, including on the £30 Amazon Fire Stick, so I wonder why Sky think this is some kind of important accomplishment

    1. Roger_Gooner says:

      The important thing about the article is that Sky has stolen a march on its major competitors as none of the other Pay TV providers such as BT TV or Virgin Media has the Apple TV app.

    2. Spurple says:

      All due respect, but Sky itself knows that their competiton is much broader than other pay TV providers. Every streaming service out there is a threat and so is every Internet-based TV platform, including smart TVs.

      Perhaps this makes sense as a box ticking feature, but it will hardly be a system seller as they say in the gaming sector.

    3. Sky Customer & Apple TV user says:

      Apple had previously indicated they were not interested in deploying Apple TV+ via traditional cable/sat co’s such as Sky, particularly around monetisation. It seems the mood has changed – for many reasons, I’m sure.

      The softening of Sky Go on a proper TV-connected streamer (other than a Playstation) is a great step forward, too.
