It’s a thrilling mix of shades to choose from, shaking up the drab exteriors of so many TV screens, locked in the black-gray-silver palette generally expected of displays.
At times, you can get a TV screen in slight variations, which is usually down to a different TV stand, or a silver model replacing the black at certain retailers. But there’s really no sense of color customization across most of the TV market – some designer TVs like Samsung The Frame, which has a host of differently-colored bezels you can accessorize with, aside.

The colors are more in line with the new Apple iMac unveiled earlier this year than any TV ranges out there today. The
Sky Glass has arrived, and it’s brought with it the potential for a smart TV design revolution.
The all-in-one smart TV is a fascinating piece of hardware for many reasons – mainly because it offers a dishless Sky TV experience without a set-top box, and also built-in Dolby Atmos speakers, offering a contained home cinema setup without need for additional accessories like a Sky Q box or a plug-in soundbar.
That simplicity is a great strength for Sky, and something other manufacturers could pay attention to. We’ve seen plenty of smart TVs with impressive audio, of course – such as the Philips OLED+935, or the Panasonic JZ2000.
But seeing Sky cut its own set-top box hardware out of the equation is a shocking, exciting move – eliding it into an internet-connected television, and exciting move for the company to make.
Something worth focusing on, though, is the choice of multiple colors for the Sky Glass smart TVs. While there are only three TV sizes – 43-inch, 55-inch and 65-inch – you can choose each of those in a variety of five colors, from Ceramic White to Dusky Pink, Racing Green, Ocean Blue, and Anthracite Black.
