More than just a catchy title and a slightly sleeker set-top box, Sky Q is the sea change TV devotees have been waiting for. Never mind the dual-band technology or the tactile touchpad remote, or the ability to pause a programme in one room and pick up where you left off in just about anywhere in the home, or the fact you can record four different shows while watching a fifth, or that each box moonlights as a wifi signal extender. The real draw? For the first time you can share your burgeoning library of ‘taped’ content between different boxes, or better still, download them onto a tablet and take them with you.
