Sky’s next set-top box rumored to do away with satellite dishes
Between building its own fibre network and selling a £10 internet-connected Now TV box, it’s clear that Sky considers satellite TV as a dying technology. According to The Telegraph, the company is now looking to build an internet-connected set-top-box that’ll deliver all content, including live TV, over the internet. Dubbed “Project Ethan,” the goal is to develop a system whereby all of Sky’s programming is available through the cloud, letting you pause TV and — if you like — resume it on a smartphone. The paper also reports that Sky is working on a refreshed Sky+HD box that’s better suited to 4K. According to the newspaper’s sources, Project Ethan was previously named “Project 2016,” so perhaps we won’t have long before the company is ready to show off what’s in store for the homes of the future.
