You'll also be able to navigate to sections in the UI by simply saying them – "TV Guide" or "Sky Cinema", for instance – while commands such as "play", "pause" and "skip 10 minutes" will allow you to directly control playback.

On top of that, Sky has to perform a wireless survey of your house to detect problem areas.Installation of Sky Q is a little more involved than a regular Sky setup.For starters, the Low-Noise Block converter (LNB) on the dish needs to be replaced.Just as Sky brought hard disk recording to the masses, and Sky HD popularised HD TV, Sky Q is the next-generation platform, designed to eliminate recording clashes, boost multi-room viewing at home, bring tablets and streaming into the equation, and make the most of the best on-demand TV system available.If that sounds a little hyperbolic, trust me, it isn't: Sky Q does is capable of doing things that no other TV system does.The easiest way to describe it is that it essentially brings Netflix-style viewing to your premium TV package.
