Sky Glass is finally here, the first TV with Sky built into the set. The new TV comes in three sizes, five colours and boasts a Quantum Dot display and Dolby Atmos sound support.
If you’re interested in bagging a brand-new Sky Glass for yourself, then we’ve rounded up all the information you need on where to purchase one. If you’re curious about the specs, then take a look at our full rundown of Sky Glass here.
How to buy Sky Glass
Sky Glass is now available to order for Sky VIP Diamond & Platinum tier customers, a loyalty scheme from Sky. If you're not part of the scheme, then the best thing to do is to enter your details on the website to be notified as soon as the TVs are ready to buy.
All you need to enter is your first name, last name, number and email. Once Sky has contacted all the Diamond & Platinum VIP customers, it will move onto those who pre-registered the TV. Currently no exact time frame has been given on when this will happen - we expect it should be within the coming weeks.

Sky Glass payment plans
If you want to buy Sky Glass, then you’ll need to choose how you wish to pay. You can either pay for the cost of the TV upfront in one chunk or choose to split the payment over either a 24-month/48-month contract. Here’s the costs of each option:
Sky Glass outright costs
- 43in - £649
- 55in - £849
- 65in - £1,049
Sky Glass 24-month contract costs
- 43in - £26 per month (£624 total cost)
- 55in - £34 per month (£816 total cost)
- 65in - £42 per month (£1,008 total cost)
Sky Glass 48-month contract costs
- 43in - £13 per month (£624 total cost)
- 55in - £17 per month (£816 total cost)
- 65in - £21 per month (£1,008 total cost)
Whilst you do save some money overall with contracts, keep in mind that you’ll be locked in with that TV for the long run. In addition, there’s also a small upfront fee for each of the contracts. This is £20 for the 24-month contracts and £10 for the 48-month contracts.
Sky Entertainment packages and extra costs
Once you’ve chosen the size and colour of your TV, you’ll need to add on your entertainment package. Sky offers different bundles including some with Netflix, some with Sports and more.
Packages start from £26 per month, and are available on a 31-day rolling contract, so you can switch over to something else should you wish.
In addition, if you want Sky throughout the rest of your home on other TVs, then you’ll need the Sky Puck. This requires an upfront cost of £50, and £10 per month on top of your contract.
It’s worth noting that Ultra HDR and Dolby Atmos are not included in your standard package. You’ll need to pay an extra £5 per month for this.
If you cancel your Sky entertainment package, then in theory the TV could still work with apps such as Netflix, or with a Freeview aerial/box. However, if you’re locked in with the TV monthly payments, you’ll still have to stick to them.
