All sky needs to do now to really be up to date with everything is offer blue rays in 4k

All sky needs to do now to really be up to date with everything is offer blue rays in 4k......& UHD with HDR Digital versions......and with Atmos Sound. Sky are losing a lot of money becuase their Buy & Keep or Rent section is so far behind the game. I for one don't hire or purchase any movies from Sky. Instead I'll purchase or hire them from another source to watch through my Xbox One S so that I can get HDR pictures with Dolby Atmos Sound. If Sky were offering this I'd buy from them, buy they aren't so I won't. Shame really!!


Also if Sky could make an option for auto switch between 4K and 1080p recongnizing what’s been streamed rather having to keep changing manually 


Still waiting for updates to improve usability. Not being able to switch the led blue light off, no highlighter on HD channels, no option to turn off the mini screen whilst on the menu. And also not a massive issue but still. Ff or rewind button being depressed to go straight to end or the beginning of a programme. All of these functions were available on old sky+HD boxes!!??



Unfortunately i have had an illness which restricts  my  movments;' i am confined to one room and have discovered 

that is possible to have another tv operating using one dish and one sky box.

Please tell me if this true or  not or some way ,to achieve ths

Thanks  Bruce

Just an idea, but when you download films etc it would be handy if you could put them into folders if they are watched on more than one occaison. For instance my daughter loves Moana/polar express/beauty and the beast. So we have downloaded them on Sky Q but they are in our downloaded screen amongst everything else we have downloaded. Would just be handy if they are all in the same section.

Just an idea.


Really good idea 


Had Q box for two weeks, hard drive very noisy, disappointed. Have asked installer to return with different box, Is this s common occursnce
