British broadcaster Sky is launching a TV that streams content via the internet, removing the need for a satellite dish. The company describes Sky Glass as a "No-fuss" streaming TV.One expert said it would put the broadcaster in direct competition with TV makers such as Samsung and Sony.Another said while ditching the "Outdated satellite dish" was long overdue, it was "An expensive way to watch TV".Sky Glass eliminates the need for an external box - and with built-in Dolby Atmos, there is no need for a sound bar either. "Sky Glass is the streaming TV with Sky inside, providing the total integration of hardware, software and content," group chief executive Dana Strong said. Sky already offers TV via broadband in Italy, and Germany, via its Sky Q set-top box. Users who already have a £26 Sky Ultimate TV subscription will pay £13 extra per month for the smallest TV. The 55in screen will be £17 and the 65in £21.Buying the smallest version of the TV upfront will cost £649 and will need an additional subscription to Sky.
