Sky TV: MAJOR new feature could be coming to customers THIS YEAR

Sky has announced a new feature could be coming to its customers this year.

The satellite broadcaster announced plans that will mean customers will be able to access its TV and streaming services without installing a dish on their properties.

This means subscribers to Sky's various services will be able to enjoy a massive amount of TV and film content without a satellite dish - something many telly fans can't do due to renting restrictions or architectural limitations.

Sky plans to deliver content via its broadband services, rather than satellite communication.

Sky has not announced a specific date for this major upgrade, though it is thought to be due to launch at some point during 2018.

According to Sky chief executive Jeremy Darroch, this new update will allow Sky to provide services to an extra 6 million households throughout Europe - 2 million of which are located in the UK.

This will bolster the company's TV streaming platform: it already delivers content via broadband through its NOW TV boxes, but the content available through that service is more limited than what Sky TV generally offers.
