Sky has announced plans to launch its TV service without the need for a satellite dish for the first time.

The dish-less service, which is expected to launch in 2018, will be delivered through a box inside the home using broadband.

The telecoms provider says “millions of homes” are unable to install dishes on the side of their houses, so this will be a welcome move for some.

 

Prices are yet to be released, but the proposed service will only be available with Sky’s newer ‘Sky Q’ service – which is the standard service available now. 

Sky Q TV subscriptions currently start at £22 per month, but set-up fees may also be applicable.

Existing Sky customers will be hit with a slew of price hikes revealed from 1 March, as the provider ups line rental prices, as well as certain TV and broadband package costs.
