Enjoy your shows in any room you choose by plugging in a Sky Q Mini box – the same Sky experience without the need for more satellite cables! Secondary boxes that are similar to the multi-room boxes – albeit with more to offer.

And lastly, as reported by Tech Radar, with the launch date set for early 2016 Sky has been clear that, at launch, there will be no 4K Ultra HD functionality. But it has confirmed the box’s internal componentry will allow for UHD in the future.
