Watch everything on Netflix and Sky TV for FREE

If you’re looking for a hassle-free way to watch (and pause) live television, exclusive boxsets from HBO, Peacock and Sky Originals and streamers like Disney+, Netflix, Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, and ITVX – Sky Stream never disappoints.

This diddy device offers access to 150 paid-for channels you won’t find on Freeview, as well as the most popular terrestrial channels. Everything is beamed to your television in High Definition as standard – something Sky Q customers still need to pay extra for – without a satellite dish drilled into your walls or engineers trudging through your home.

Once ordered, Sky Stream arrives in the post with a step-by-step guide to get set-up and streaming in seconds. Trust us, even the biggest technophobe should cope with this simple DIY set-up: just plug it in, connect to your Wi-Fi, and the binge-watching begins!

Seriously, setting up Sky Stream takes less time than preparing the popcorn to enjoy with your movie once everything is up-and-running.

The traditional telly Guide, with access to all live channels, is present and correct, alongside the new “Continue Watching” carousel which brings together all of your in-progress TV shows from Sky’s own catalogue of on-demand boxsets, as well as platforms like Prime Video, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, ITVX, My5, and Disney Plus.

The Sky Stream box ships with the same rebooted remote control that launched alongside Sky Glass, with the backlit keys – which glow in the dark so you can easily see what you’re doing during movie night – a particularly clever addition compared to older Sky remotes.

The end of the satellite dish has never been closer, we just hope Sky irons out the final few quirks with its new Sky Stream box before it hammers the final nail into its coffin.
