Wonder no longer: it’ll start from £42 per month, depending on your choice of channels. There’s an up-front installation costs ranging between £99 and £299, depending on your choice of box and whether or not you subscribe to Sky Broadband, Movies or Sports when you sign-up.
With certain additional Sky Q features – notably mesh networking that will boost your Wi-Fi range – also calling for a Sky Broadband connection, the company is clearly using the launch of the new TV service to increase the numbers of its ‘quad-play’ and broadband customers.
Overall, Sky says that the service only costs around £12 more than its existing Sky HD offering for most customers.
It’s not as expensive as Sky Q could have been, but at around £500 per year at its cheapest, without including first-year up-front costs, it’s still not exactly cheap.
Alongside the Sky Q pricing, the company also announced an updated Sky Now TV box for non-subscribers who still want access to some of Sky’s content.
Update, February 9: Right on time, Sky’s new Q packages are now on sale.
