Sky has unveiled Sky Live, the clever entertainment device that will transform the way you use your TV.
Exclusive to Sky Glass, the new interactive camera brings you exciting new ways to share your favourite TV with family and friends, work out, play and video call – all on your TV.
Fraser Stirling, Global Chief Product Officer, Sky, said: “We surprised everyone when we launched our streaming TV, Sky Glass, in 2021. Now we’re doing it again. Sky Live makes your TV much more than just a TV, by introducing new entertainment experiences for the heart of your home.
“Get active with motion control games, work out with body tracking technology, video call on the big screen and watch TV with loved ones – even from afar. And this is just the start. With our powerful Entertainment OS ecosystem, it will keep getting better with every update.”
Sky Live makes the big screen in your living room even smarter, more social, and more interactive. Key features include:
Watch Together when you’re not together
- Enjoy TV together, even when you’re apart.
- See and hear family and friends in their own homes alongside your favourite content on your TV screen, so you can celebrate Premier League goals together live, discuss the latest drama on Love Island, and chat through every episode of And Just Like That, S2.
- Working across live channels and Sky on demand content – the dedicated Watch Together button on screen lets you invite your family and friends to watch with you.
- And with Auto-Tracking, everyone will always be in shot and in focus. Plus, Sky Live’s background noise suppression technology means sound will be crystal-clear.

Simple set up
Sky Live has been designed with the same simplicity and privacy credentials as Sky Glass. It’s easy to set up, with no remotes, headsets or controllers, and the magnetic base sits securely on top of your Sky Glass, with cables to connect to the TV. Giving you complete control over your privacy, there’s a dedicated button which lets you switch the camera and microphone on and off – when the front light is off, you know it’s completely off.
Developing for the future
Sky Live is the latest addition to the Sky TV Entertainment OS ecosystem, which includes Sky Glass and Sky Stream. Sky Live will never stay the same; its software will continue to evolve, with new games, workouts, features and more to come in future releases.
As a platform Sky is looking forward to working with experience and app creators to bring new entertaining innovations to the big screen. We’re even opening our developer portal very soon.
