It's the most wonderful time of the year, for telly at least. Sky has a Santa's sack full of goodies to enjoy this Christmas, including blockbuster 4K films, insightful nature documentaries and tons of sport.

Remember, if you don't subscribe to Sky, you can grab a day, week or month pass using Now TV. That way, you only pay for your viewing over Christmas, and when the pass expires, you won't be tied into a lengthy contract.


Sky Cinema, Available from Boxing Day

Sky Cinema's biggest premiere this Christmas is a great superhero spoof. Ryan Reynolds plays a mercenary who's subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers. And now he's on a quest for revenge.

It's more irreverent than most other Marvel superhero films – Deadpool frequently breaks the fourth wall to address the audience, and also makes reference to other films in the Marvel franchise.

But it obviously worked, helping it become one of the highest-grossing films of the year. Plus, you can watch it in 4K if you have Sky Q.

Monkeys: An Amazing Family

Sky One, Boxing Day

This nature documentary follows a newborn monkey and its mother as they fight to survive the competitive social hierarchy of monkey society. The Temple Troop is a dynamic group of monkeys, living in ancient ruins deep within the storied jungles of South Asia.

If you've been moved by the iguanas racing to escape from snakes on 'Planet Earth II', prepare to have your heart wrenched once you've seen these little fellas.

Everton vs Liverpool

Sky Sports, 19th December

A Merseyside derby is always a big game, and never more so than just before Christmas. Liverpool (third in the league at time of writing) travel to local rivals Everton.

Neither team is on a winning streak at the moment – in fact, the 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Chelsea last month will still be fresh in the home team's memory. Who will be victorious and who will be weeping into their Christmas pud? Find out tonight.

Arsenal vs West Bromwich Albion

Sky Sports, Boxing Day

A 3pm kick-off gives you just enough time to have your leftovers for Boxing Day lunch before getting stuck into some footie. The venue is the Emirates in north London, as home team Arsenal take on the West Midlands side.

At time of writing, Arsenal sat second in the league, while the visitors had dropped to eighth behind Watford. So there's all to play for the day after Christmas.

Liverpool vs Manchester City

Sky Sports, New Year's Eve

Getting ready for a night out on New Year's Eve? This match could be a good warm-up. It starts at 5:30pm, by which time you should be well and truly in the mood.

And with both teams being real title contenders, it promises plenty of footballing fireworks before the real things happen at midnight.
