What is Sky Multiroom?
Sky Q Multiscreen is a paid extra that comes with a Sky Q TV subscription which lets you watch Sky TV in multiple rooms in your house. You can watch TV in the second room of your choice for an additional fee on top of your Sky TV subscription. It comes standard with one Sky Q Mini box.
The main set-top TV box included with Sky Q is called a Sky Q 1TB UHD box because it has one terabyte (TB) storage and supports UHD viewing when available. There are also extra Sky Q Mini boxes included for multi-room viewing.
When using Sky Multiscreen:
- You can view various Sky channels on multiple TVs. You can have up to four Sky+ boxes, and each one of them will have access to every channel you pay to.
- Watch live TV or download on-demand content on up to four devices when you sign up for Sky Go Extra at no additional cost (in line with your TV subscription).
- You can impose viewing restrictions on one box without impacting the others because each Sky box has its parental settings.
