In a presentation to analysts, the initiative said it would bring in Voice Search for its Sky Q customers through the existing Ruwido remote early in the year. Later full voice control will be made available.
2017 will also see the ability to record six shows while recording a seventh and the ability to personalise favourite channels.
Dolby Atmos – the latest sound initiative – will arrive before the year’s end (BT TV is also experimenting with the technology).
Sky Q will also be released in Italy and Germany.
