Sky launches streaming stick Sky Stream
In brief

Sky has launched its own ‘streaming stick’ as part of its latest move to capture subscribers who would rather stream via the internet instead of use a satellite dish or cable.

Sky Stream uses the same user interface as Sky Glass, the internet-ready smart TV Sky launched last year, and can be used with any TV. As well as featuring Sky channels, it contains apps for subscriber video-on-demand services such as Netflix, Disney+, AppleTV+ and Amazon Prime Video.

Subscription packages start from £26 a month, the Comcast-owned company announced today.

There are several streaming sticks on the UK market already, including Roku, Amazon Fire, and Sky-owned NOW.
