    Sky Q


    2 Not allowed!
    I am getting Sky Q for Crimbo! The only person I know who has it is my father who is too old to appreciate it and cant use the remotes or find the menus.

    Does anyone else have it and is it as glorious as I hope it will be?

    And before the Virgin fanboys attack, it was a free upgrade after a moan so I now have the box set package with fibre unlimited and the 1tb Q box for £55.

    And before the Kodi fanboys attack I stream Show box and Terrarium TV through my Xbox

    And before the PS fanboys attack I am 45 and dont care.

    In, out, in, out and shake it all about...............

      Yep, took up Sky about 6 weeks ago and came with 1TB Q box

      I like the interface - I upgraded [£20] to the Bluetooth remote control that does voice recognition - I've had several Humax boxes previously which have got progressively worse in terms of quality. The interface is snappy and simple to use.

      I have it cabled to my BB router [WiFi also available] so it integrates well with catch-up tv.

      So far, it's a like from me.

      I wanted that remote, my father has that so I assumed it was included. Certainly I wasnt asked if I wanted it. I hope sky don't let me down I don't want another rant

      Yes I've had it for about 3 months and it is great. I much prefer it now that I have got used to it. The box sets etc and films are very easy to use and find. The best feature is the voice recognition as it makes it simple to search for programmes and its great for my 5 year old who has learnt that he can say what he wants into the remote and it will come on! Also there is so much more storage. I don't think you'll be dissapointed.

      SO my Q box will listen to me and change the channel, my Amazon dot will listen to me and turn on the lights and play music yet my wife will totally ignore me as usual.............

      To be fair to your dad the remotes aren't that easy to use. I do like the voice recognition although talking to a remote control is a bit bizarre
