Sky’s Buy & Keep service is now available to non-Sky customers. The service lets you buy films both as a digital download as well as a DVD copy. Previously, it was only available to Sky customers.
You can access it now through the Sky Store on your computer, or on your Android or iOS mobile or tablet. You can also watch through streaming boxes that have access to the Sky Store app – these include the Sky Now TV Box, Roku’s range and a YouView box.
New releases start at £13.99, while older films start at £7.99.
You should be able to watch the film as soon as you buy it. The DVD copy will arrive through the post a couple of days later.
Sky has also introduced a new ‘Follow Me’ feature. This lets you start watching a film on your TV and carry on on your phone or tablet when you leave the room. Handy if you have to nip out, or someone commandeers the main TV.
