News Image
Sky Ireland has announced that Sky's new TV, Sky Glass, is to officially launch in Ireland on Thursday, 25th August 2022.

Available in a range of sizes and colours, Sky Glass is the only TV with award-winning Sky inside, allowing customers to get Sky TV over WiFi – removing the need for a satellite dish or set-top box. Simply plug, pair and play to enjoy stunning picture quality and cinematic sound, with everything you need built in. With easy access to stream your favourite content and apps using voice command, Sky Glass makes it simple for users to find and watch the TV they love.

Speaking about Sky Glass launching in Ireland, Sky Ireland CEO, JD Buckley, said: "Following its hugely successful launch in the UK, we are thrilled to announce that Ireland will be the second market to launch Sky Glass. The launch of Sky Glass here marks a significant milestone in Sky's 25-year history in Ireland and follows our recent announcement that Sky Mobile is coming to Ireland in 2023, as well as the opening of our four new flagship retail stores.

"Investing in the best technology, the best content and the best customer experience are always our top priorities and Sky Glass is the most innovative product we have developed yet. It opens the world of Sky to customers who may not have been able to access Sky TV before now. With the ability to stream the best content and apps over WiFi, Sky Glass features Ultra HD, Quantum Dot technology and 360° Dolby Atmos® sound. Sky Glass will be available in Ireland from August 25th, but we are giving customers the opportunity to pre-register for Sky Glass now."
