Sky Q users might want to fire up their set-top boxes and try out the latest free upgrade that’s just been released by the satellite TV firm. Anyone who happens to have the latest Sky Q box installed in their homes can now head to the App section of the home screen and discover a swathe of free games which will certainly help to kill some time during the current lockdown.
This fun update comes courtesy of PlayWorks with a total of 20 titles available to play right on your TV.
The mini-games include classics such as Tetris, Solitaire and Mah Jongg, as well as mobile hits like Doodle Jump and Crossy Road.
All can be controlled using the Sky remote so you don’t need additional hardware. If you’re struggling to find this feature you can simply use the voice control on the remote – just say ‘Open PlayWorks’ and things should launch without you having to scroll through endless menus.
Here’s a full list of all the games available on Sky Q from today.
Text Twist • Strike • Doodle Jump • Super Collapse 2 • Moodies • Solitaire Classic • Carrot Mania Pirates • Hearts • Space Moodies • Tetris • Purple Rescue • A Maze-ing MAC • Darts • Letter Sense • Carrot Mania Space • Vs 100 • Crossy Road • Solitaire Towers • Mahjongg • 2048
Along with this new gaming app, Sky is boasting that it will be adding a specially curated selection of apps across fitness, music and learning in the coming months.
There’s no word on exactly what extra apps are coming to Sky Q but the firm will, no doubt, announce more news on this soon.
Once launched, these will join the likes of Netflix and YouTube which are already available on Sky Q and Disney+ which recently launched on the popular platform.
Disney+, which costs £5.99 per month, offers instant access to hundreds of shows and movies from franchises including Star Wars, Pixar and Marvel.
You can now purchase Disney+ directly through Sky as long as you’re an existing Sky Q customer. Once you have purchased, Disney+ will be added to your monthly bill.
Sky also says that those who purchase Disney+ through their service will see recommendations side by side and be able to manage bills together in one place.
