This will apply to BT customers with a YouView set-top box or the latest Vision+ equivalent.

BT TV customers will be able to enjoy the latest films in standard definition across Sky Movies' branded Premiere, Showcase, Greats, Disney, Family, Action & Adventure, Comedy, Crime & Thriller, Drama & Romance, Sci Fi & Horror and Select channels.

Customers with a BT Infinity fibre broadband subscription will be able to stream live content or watch films on-demand, while ADSL customers will be able to access the on-demand catalogue.

Alex Green, Director of BT TV, said the firm is "delighted" to have reached an agreement with Sky to enable its TV customers to enjoy Sky Movies.

He said subscribers will gain access to a "superb offering of films for every taste, including the latest blockbusters".

"We believe this gives a tremendous boost to our BT TV film offering," Mr Green stated.

Rob Webster, Director of Sky’s Commercial Group, commented that the company is "pleased" to extend the distribution of Sky Movies to BT TV customers. 

"Following the conclusion of commercial negotiations, BT’s customers can now enjoy access to the UK’s most popular subscription movies service," he noted.

"In helping even more UK homes enjoy Sky Movies this agreement also supports our wholesale content business."

Sky Movies subscribers can currently enjoy live films on 11 channels, and also access more than 700 different titles on-demand.

These include exclusive premieres each week from Hollywood studios such as Disney, Fox, Paramount, Sony, Universal and Warner Bros.
