Updating software on sky box
British Satellite TV broadcaster Sky is unveiling a number of new improvements to its Sky Q service this week.Spotify will launch on Sky Q in the UK and Ireland in the spring, and like other third-party apps it will be integrated into the Sky Q interface for quick access to songs and playlists.Sky’s broad software improvements come in the same week as a surprise billion bid from Comcast to purchase the European pay TV service.Comcast is clearly interested in getting access to Sky’s 23 million subscribers across Europe, but the bid will complicate Disney’s billion deal to buy a large amount of Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox.Sky says it’s bundling the full Netflix service into “a brand new Sky TV subscription pack,” which means existing Netflix customers can migrate to the new Sky TV bundle and pay the Netflix subscription fee to Sky directly, or simply sign into the Netflix Sky Q app to access content.The Netflix partnership is unusual, as Netflix typically provides its own app to set-top boxes.Unfortunately, 20–30 minutes later, the message on the screen returned.New software was being downloaded again, said the message. The message was stuck, there was no movement on the progress bar.
On the other hand, in the bedroom, the secondary STB had been working just fine with no issues.
