Sky has announced that it is increasing the minimum broadband speed requirements for its Sky Glass and Sky Stream devices. The new minimum speed for HD streaming is 25 Mbps, up from 11 Mbps. The minimum speed for 4K streaming remains at 30 Mbps.

Sky says that the increase in speed requirements is necessary to ensure that customers experience a smooth streaming experience. The company says that the new requirements are based on the latest technical standards and that they will ensure that customers can watch their favorite shows and movies in high quality.

The increase in speed requirements is likely to impact some Sky customers, particularly those who live in rural areas or who have slow broadband connections. Sky says that it will be working with customers who are affected by the change to ensure that they can still access its services.

The new speed requirements for Sky Glass and Sky Stream come at a time when broadband speeds in the UK are increasing. The average broadband speed in the UK is now 52 Mbps, up from 38 Mbps in 2019. This means that the majority of Sky customers should be able to meet the new speed requirements without any problems.

However, there are still some customers who may be affected by the change. If you are concerned about whether or not you have the required broadband speed, you can use Sky’s speed checker tool to find out.

Sky Glass and Sky Stream are Sky’s latest streaming devices. Sky Glass is a set-top box that offers a range of Sky channels and on-demand content. Sky Stream is a streaming stick that can be plugged into any TV.

Both devices offer a high-quality streaming experience, but they require a fast broadband connection. The new speed requirements from Sky will ensure that customers can continue to enjoy a smooth streaming experience with these devices.
