Powerline should still be supported by the hardware, this is why the PSU connects to the box using a DIN connector.

Powerline is still possible in hardware and current software however it will no longer be supported in future software revisions.

Is this the information you wanted?

Powerline for Sky Q is dead (unofficially - not opinion!) although it's unlikely to ever be official as support was NEVER official.

Re: General Sky TV Discussion

Sky and BT have announced a deal that will allow the rival broadcasters to sell their channels on each others' platforms.
Under the terms of the agreement, BT will wholesale its BT Sport channels to Sky, allowing the firm to sell them directly to Sky satellite customers.

This will mean BT's live UEFA Champions League and Premier League football being made available on the Sky platform.
BT has spent north of 3.5 billion on Champions League and Premier League football rights since 2012 in a bid to compete with Sky.
The deal between the two giants will also see BT "market and sell" Sky's Now TV service to its customers.
