Sky has announced its Sky Q and Now TV customers will be able to include Netflix as part of their subscription in the next 12 months.
Sky has today announced the new partnership which will see Netflix integrated into its Sky Q and Now TV platforms.
This new deal will give millions of new and existing Sky Q customers the option of a new TV package which will include access to the full Netflix library within the Sky Q menu.
With the popularity of streaming service Netflix soaring in recent years, Sky is seeking to capitalise further on its ever-growing audience, so for the first time Sky customers will be able to watch Sky Atlantic blockbusters such as Game of Thrones and popular Netflix Original series such as The Crown with a single subscription.
How will pricing work?
Sky is remaining tight-lipped on pricing for now, claiming it'll be "attractively priced".
It has so far only confirmed that existing Netflix customers will be able to move their account to the new Sky Q package or Now TV.
There won't be any new Now TV passes with Netflix included, however. You'll still have to subscribe separately.
Here are the current Netflix subscription prices:
- Basic (watch on one device at a time) – £5.99/month
- Standard (two devices) – £7.99/month
- Premium (four devices) – £9.99/month
What does this mean for Sky+ customers?
If you've got Sky+ you won't be able to access Netflix from your Sky+ box. To take advantage of the new entertainment package including Netflix, you'll have to upgrade to Sky Q which can be pricey.
Once the prices are revealed we'll crunch the numbers to see how competitive the new package is.
