Sky glass is poor

So as a loyal sky customer of many many years I am so disappointed with the sky glass TV. The concept is great, and I'm sure apps are the way forward to view content. BUT 

 

the picture quality is crap. I've tried to amend settings to recommended. The backlight black stripes are still there especially when watching footballs 

 

the picture often freezes when you rewind content and then you have to reboot. 

I've heard this all before..... 

reset the Tv. Do this do that. 

yea, I do have the latest software.

 

my LG led Tv is far more superior and it doesn't claim to be OLED. Sky glass is NOT OLED QUALITY.

I feel I'm paying for a Tv that falls well below the quality I was expecting. Who cares that it was made carbon neutral? It doesn't make me feel any better whe. You cannot just play a film....

 

sound quality is great, so only useful if you are VI. .

Glass never claimed to be OLED.  It's QLED, which is an entirely different display panel technology to OLED.

 

Having said that, Glass was not a particular great QLED even at launch, and that was over two years ago.

 

OLED: Organic Light Emitting Diode (an actual thing)

 

QLED: 'Quantum Dot LED' (a marketing name invented by Samsung in 2016, who were losing business to LG OLED televisions at the time: the very similar initials may not be entirely a coincidence)

As others have pointed out, the Sky Glass is essentially old technology in the world of TV as it was built/designed 3-4 years ago and so far hasn't been upgraded with a new model. There really is no comparision when comparing it with the bigger manufacturers more recent TVs of the past couple of years.

Re: Sky glass is poor

There was years of rumours of an Apple Television ... they saw sense and never released one.... perhaps Comcast (Sky) should have learned from Apple and left TV manufacturing to TV manufacturers🤔

That and an Apple TV 4K box?

 

There's even some change from £5K to buy a soundbar ; )

Re: Sky glass is poor

Totally agree the picture is rubbish I sometimes wonder if it's actually UHD because my samsung tv in the bedroom which is coming off an ariel in the loft is way better.

Glass has a UHD panel, so the picture is by definition 'UHD' (containing 3840 x 2160 pixels).  The global manufacture of large HD panels ceased some time ago as there's just no market for those any more.

 

That doesn't mean the source material is 4K, though, (most isn't) and the silicon which the Glass set contains to do its upscaling was fairly budget three years ago.
