Rumor: Apple TV app is coming to Sky Q in the UK


A new rumor posted on Reddit claims that UK Sky Q users may soon be able to access the Apple TV app on the service.

Reddit user MrKatUK, who claims to be a Sky employee, posted indicating:

UK. Apple TV app coming to Sky Q Source: I work for Sky. It was in one of our training videos last week

The report gave no indication as to when the app would be released, however, the reference to employee training would suggest sooner rather than later. If the report is correct, it would mean UK Sky Q customers could soon have access to the Apple TV app in Sky Q.

Sky Q is British broadcaster Sky’s premium TV offering, an all-in-one package built around the Sky Q Box. It gives users access to all of Sky’s live programming, including Sky Sports and Movies (with subscriptions), as well as Sky’s catch-up and on-demand content, and recording, pausing and rewinding live TV.

Sky Q already offers users access to services such as Amazon’s Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+ and YouTube as well as UK apps such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and All 4, currently making a Apple TV app a notable omission.

A few Apple TV Reddit users asked about the possibility of a Sky Q app for Apple TV, but the replies indicated that it would make the Sky Q box somewhat redundant, so extremely unlikely. The report is unconfirmed, but keep your eyes peeled for an Apple TV app for Sky Q on the horizon.
