Sky Q offers an all-in-one package to all its users. You can access Sky TV while also checking out other streaming apps like YouTube, Netflix, Spotify, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, and more. Sky Q comes with a set-top-box that provides its viewers a compact and more enhanced device than the Sky+.
Now, if you are using the Sky Q TV box while connected to the broadband and you are a Sky VIP subscriber, you can have the chance to receive a free voice control remote from Sky. Viewers from the UK and the Republic of Ireland can get their free voice remote from Sky until March 31, 2021. However, Sky also noted that they give free remote only until stocks last.
With the Sky Q voice-control remote, you can do many things on your Sky Q box just by saying a command. Search for movies, shows, actors, or events. You can change channels or manage the playback on your video. It is easy to launch apps or change the accessibility settings of your TV. Sky also lets you enjoy the newly added feature, What Should I Watch.
