Sky Glass speed requirements

Does anyone know what the minimum internet speed requirement is for Sky Glass, both for viewing channels (both SD and HD) and for accessing web-based services such as the BBC iPlayer?

Broadband requirements
Sky Glass works over broadband, so there’s no Sky dish needed.

Minimum recommended broadband speeds apply and might change depending on your package. We’ll recommend these before you place your order.

You may need faster speeds to get the best experience. Especially when watching in UHD or streaming on more devices at the same time with the Whole Home pack. For more info, see Broadband speeds explained. We also recommend a fibre broadband connection.

If you’re with another provider, you'll need to check your broadband speeds with them.

Recommended minimum broadband speed of 10Mb/s.

Re: Sky Glass speed requirements

Thank you for the information. I had a hunch it was 10 megs.

Re: Sky Glass speed requirements

Sky Glass is not great if you want a good TV, don't get Sky Glass.

Re: Sky Glass speed requirements

The only good thing about Sky Glass is the Easy credit

I would say the same as netflix. Any fibre based product should be fine
