Why Choose Sky Glass Wall Mounting?

Sky Glass TV wall mounting offers several benefits. It saves space, enhances room aesthetics, and has reasonable audio sound.

The smart TV enables streaming services such as Netflix, YouTube, etc., which require an internet connection.

But what truly sets it apart is the absence of an external setup box as it has been integrated into the TV unit, which frees up space, and means that if you are already a Sky customer, you can watch Sky as usual without the regular Sky box.

Also, it does not require a satellite cable, which means fewer cables are needed, as all that is needed is the power plug cable, except when connecting an HDMI cable to an external device if needed.

By taking advantage of Sky Glass wall mounting, you can enjoy your favorite shows and movies at the right height for viewing comfort.

How to Wall Mount Sky Glass TV?

The Sky Glass TVs are impressive in terms of their simplicity, however, there are some factors to consider when deciding whether to wall mount Sky Glass TVs on the wall.

The supplied bracket

The supplied TV wall bracket for sky glass wall mounting is also part of the TV stand, which is used to install it on a tabletop.

While this is perfect when the weight of the TV is secure on a table stand, the wall mounting plate is too narrow and doesn't spread the weight over a wider area for safety and security needed to wall mount sky glass on the wall, especially for the larger Sky Glass TV models.

By design, the Sky Glass TV is built to be flush with the wall. The wall plate has four elevated pins that are inserted into four recesses behind the Sky Glass TV.

The problem is that for the pins on the wall plate to slide into the recess behind the Sky Glass TV, they have to be slanted into place at an angle to get it in (this is easily done when the wall plate is used as a stand and there is a lot of space behind it); however, when wall mounted, the Sky Glass wall plate is so flush to the wall that you will not be able to get the angle required to hook it in place.

To fix this issue when installing sky glass, the Sky Glass installation guide advises putting four bulky spacers between the narrow wall plate and the wall, which makes this even less sturdy and unsafe, especially on plasterboard walls.

Also, if an electric socket is present behind the TV, the narrow space behind the TV will prevent it from being used when considering Sky Glass wall mounting as there will not be sufficient space for the plug.

The Sky Glass TV product information leaflet recommends recessing the power socket by an electrician, as this problem is known to them.

While this is easily said, this is an additional cost that is normally not part of customers' budgets.

The solution

Lucky for Sky Glass, it has a built-in VESA (Interface Standards for the Display Industry) attachment, which makes Sky Glass TV wall mounting compatible with third-party TV wall brackets.

When choosing a bracket for your Sky Glass, ensure the wall plate spreads the weight properly for safety and secure wall mounting.
