Music channels

Hi, I have Sky Glass and my partner has Sky Q. He has so many more music channels than I do. Am I doing something wrong, or does Sky Glass not have all of the music channels?

Re: Music channels

Sky glass has less channels across all genres including music. Did you check the channels you could receive before you purchased glass ? Always wise 🙂

Re: Music channels

I thought that might be the case. I didn't check - I assumed it would be the same 🤦‍♀️. It's not a big deal; I was just curious as to why the channels were different. Thank you for your help.

@StaceyH100 further to the other posts I have provided a link below which shows which channels are and are not on the Sky streaming platform.  This was last updated on 7th September

As you will see there are far fewer channels than on Sky Q.

@GP221  No one on the forum will know the actual reasons but there are 2 parties involved, Sky & the channel owners and likely to be a complicated process for being added to another platform.

Like you I'm a customer here, Sky Employees are clearly identified as such.

Likely because there is becoming less of a demand for music channels.

 

It takes an agreement from the owner of the channel and ask for the channels to be available by the platform, so perhaps a number of the owners don't think the cost associated with also being on the sky streaming platform is worth it.

 

Also music channels are becoming a thing of the past with them gradually closing. Most people consume their music from YouTube or music streaming services like Spotify.
