Sky Atlantic comes standard with every Sky bundle, so if you're a Sky subscriber, you've already got access to Sky Atlantic.

Unlike some parts of Sky's TV output — such as its premium sports and movies channels that can be added to TV packages from other providers — Sky Atlantic and Sky Atlantic HD are only available to Sky TV customers, whether through Sky itself or NOW TV.

Watch Twin Peaks without Sky

Watch Twin Peaks online

If you're happy with your current provider but want to watch Twin Peaks, you can get Sky Atlantic with Sky's contract-free streaming service, NOW TV.

NOW TV can be streamed online through laptops, games consoles, smartphones, tablets and some set-top boxes and smart TVs. Sky Atlantic is available on NOW TV's Entertainment Pass, which you can purchase on a monthly basis, allowing you to dip in and out of the series you're interested in.
