SKY Glass customers can finally sort personalized content onto their TV as part of a major update coming soon.
Netflix-style profiles allow each family member to see their own favorites on a separate page.
Whether you’re a sports fan or a reality TV fanatic, you can create your very own watchlist under app and channel playlists, both live and on-demand.
And there is also a common profile page for the whole family.
The broadcasting giant plans to roll out the feature by Christmas, with a host of other changes along the way.
The announcement comes as the company launches its brand new Sky Stream keyless plug-in box, which uses the same software as Sky Glass – meaning it too will get the same new features.
Sky has announced that the playlist rail will be moved up on the homepage as part of the update.
All playlist rails are now sorted by newest.
Continue Watching is also rolling out as a new rail on the homepage, making it super easy to jump to what you last watched.
There are even actor sites so you can find the best of your favorite stars.
Sky Glass owners can also see a huge improvement in image quality as experts update local dimming for higher contrast and brightness.
A Vivid mode in the Options menu provides a more “punchy” image with higher levels of contrast and color saturation.
And before the end of the year, Sky says it will turn on Bluetooth connectivity, allowing users to listen to Sky Glass with their headphones instead.
Requesting a show with your voice also becomes easier, as you can just say “play” followed by the title you want to watch, which will automatically either play the first episode or pick up where you left off.
