Sky Q 1TB vs 2TB

Sky Go Vs Sky Queen

The 2TB box allows you to do more than either version of the 1TB box but depending on your viewing habits it may not always be the best option for you.

If you don’t need lots of recording space for example, then the 1TB box will be perfect for you. Those who live in a large household where the ability to stream to multiple mini boxes is important however, will want to opt for the 2TB box.

There’s also the idea of budget to consider. New customers will have to pay more to get the 2TB box installed on top of purchasing the base Sky Signature package and any extras like HD or Kids.

What is the Sky Q Mini box?

  • Watch live TV and recordings
  • Stream content to different rooms by adding Sky Q Multiscreen
  • Up to four Sky Q Mini boxes can be chained together at one time

The Sky Q Mini box is a smaller version of the main Sky Q box that you can use to watch TV all around your house by purchasing Sky Q Multiscreen. You can watch live TV plus all of your recordings and can download content from on demand.

With the Sky 1TB box you can only stream to one additional Sky Q Mini box at a time. The Sky 2TB box allows you to stream to two Sky Q Mini boxes at once.

Do Sky Q Mini boxes support UHD viewing?

Even if you’ve got the 1TB UHD or 2TB Sky Q box, the Mini box unfortunately doesn’t support 4K Ultra HD viewing.

How much is Sky Q?

  • £25 a month for Sky Signature
