Unless you’ve been living inside a cave for the past two months, you’ve probably seen the posters for Sky Glass plastered across every billboard in Britain. For those who have missed the barrage of marketing, Sky Glass is a custom-designed 4K TV that streams live television, on-demand boxsets and streaming apps over your broadband connection. This is a seismic move from the company as this is the first product they have launched that doesn’t require a dish stuck to your walls and it’s been a long time coming with Sky first announcing that it was working on a dish-free device all the way back in 2017.

Prices start from £13 a month for the 43-inch panel, with the 55-inch model costing £17 a month, and the 65-inch 4K TV starting from £21 a month
Contract length: Up to 48 months | Upfront cost: £10
