Sky Glass and Multi-Room – About the Setup
Before we begin with the guide, let’s learn more about the Sky Glass Multi Room setup.
This will provide us with a better understanding of whether Sky Glass Multi-Room is achievable with your current setup or not.
- First things first, setting up a multi-room requires a monthly subscription!
The fee must be paid alongside your regular Sky streaming subscription taxes.
The setup is relatively easy and you’ll be able to achieve multi-room streaming throughout your entire household, using Streaming Puck devices.
The Sky streaming puck device is the streaming stick that you must connect to the secondary TVs throughout your home that deliver the Sky service.
They come at an approachable price and for each Sky Pluck you add to your setup, the monthly subscription to Sky will increase.
Can I Perform Multi Room Setup By Myself?
The Multi-Room setup is completely doable by the users themselves and there is no requirement for Sky to do whatever on their end.
As long as your Sky subscription is paid and the service is delivered to your TV, you’ll be able to set up the Multi-Room by yourself.
Sky has also made it really user-friendly and it isn’t as complicated as installing multi-room services from different providers. It’s a simple plug-n-go process, using the Stream Pluck.
Let’s now learn more about the Multi-Room services, what it is and how it works!
In a considerable amount of households, there is more than one TV. When purchasing a Sky Glass and subscribing to Sky for a TV license, you’ll only get the service on one of your TVs.
This is exactly where the Multi-Room feature comes in.
The Multi-Room feature is a setup that’ll allow more than one TV in your home, to connect with the Sky service, alongside your main device.
It is a really comfortable option and it is fully supported by Sky at all times, so experiencing troubles during this is not expected.
Note: The Sky Glass Multi Room comes at a price that respectively adds up to the fee!
Let’s learn how much a Sky Glass Multi Room costs for you!
Anyone would like to know the extra money they’ll be handing over when signing up for a certain service.
With the Sky Glass Multi-Room, you’ll have to hand over up to £10 a month, just for using the service.
Once it has been enabled for your main Sky device, the Sky Stream Plucks will be able to connect and receive signals from the main device, which will enable Multi-Room.
Not paying the additional though, will kill the Multi-Room service and only your main device’s Sky TV will function.
- Sky Glass Multi-Room is a singular service, enabled for each user manually!
In fact, you could talk to Sky upon signing up with them, to have Multi-Room enabled during the start of your subscribing.
This way, you’re able to look forward to getting all of the Stream Pucks you’ll need to install and get everything set up with multi-viewing in your home.
The Sky Glass Stream Pucks are the devices that make Multi-Room viewing possible!
They are streaming sticks that connect to either a Sky Glass TV or a regular (or non-smart) unit and connect with the Sky service, through your main unit.
They provide the secondary TV with the same amount of content and channels that the main unit has.
However, there is a limit as to how many Pucks you could have in your setup!
After learning more about the Sky Glass Stream Pucks, we should mention that your Sky account has a device limit.
That device limit applies to how many Sky Glass TVs and Stream Pucks you could add to your setup at max.
You could have the following amount of devices:
- Up to 6 Sky Stream Pucks
- Up to 3 Sky Glass TVs (the main unit included)
Since the main Sky Glass TV is included in your account, you could only get two more Sky Glass TVs.
However, you could use the Stream Pucks on regular or non-smart TVs that are not Sky Glass devices, to keep into the limitation without trespassing the limits.
Yes, Stream Pucks do make multiple-viewing a lot more comfortable, but at what price do they come?
The fees of the Stream Pucks at the device themselves have separate prices, so let’s review them:
- Sky Stream Puck Purchase Price – up to £50
- Sky Stream Puck Monthly Price – up to £10
Keep in mind that the first Puck merges with the Multi-Room fee, so you won’t have to pay £20 for having enabled Multi Room and connecting your Puck.
Instead, add £10 to your monthly price for each of the Sky Stream Pucks you have installed in your setup.
Let’s now take a look at how the Multi-Room service is enabled!
After reviewing all of the details about the Multi-Room Setup, let’s learn the setup!
