This month, Sky has a bumper crop of great stuff to look out for, whether it's entertainment, films or sporting action. And if you're a Sky Q customer, all of the below will be available in 4K!

It's all also viewable on Now TV – Sky's subscription-free streaming service – but not in 4K. For more information about how Now TV works, check out our guide.

Spider-Man

Available now

This isn't last year's Spider-Man: Homecoming, but the 2002 film starring Tobey Maguire. It sees our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man fall in love with Kirsten Dunst's Mary Jane Watson, and take on Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin. There have been numerous Spidey films over the years, but this original reboot remains one of the best.

The Sting

Available now

Robert Redford and Paul Newman's set the template for the double act in this classic. Redford is aspiring con man Johnny Hooker, who, following the murder of a mutual friend, teams up with seasoned veteran of the swindle, Henry Gondorff (Newman). They set about a scheme so dastardly that the man responsible for the murder, Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw), won't stand a chance. But as ever, there's a sting in the tale.

The Affair season 4

Airing weekly

Provocative drama starring Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Joshua Jackson and Maura Tierney. As the name suggests, it focuses on a married man who begins an extramarital affair with a waitress. Wilson and Tireney won Golden Globes in 2015 and 2016 respectively for their roles.

The Breakfast Club

Available 6th July

John Hughes' classic teen comedy-drama is now available in 4K. Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy are the disparate high school students called in to a Saturday detention with their strict assistant principal (played by Paul Gleason). While at first their differences seem irreconcilable, as they open up to each other and the barriers break down, they realise they have more in common than they first thought.

Geostorm

Available 6th July

Classics and dramas are all well and good, but if you really want to see what 4K can do, you need a blockbuster. Geostorm is that film. It's a sci-fi thriller with a disaster bent – when a network of satellites that controls the global climate start attacking Earth, mankind faces a choice: uncover the real threat, or perish in a gigantic global geostorm. It stars Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess and Abbie Cornish.

British Grand Prix

formula one

8th July

The iconic Silverstone plays host once again to the biggest race on the British Formula One calendar: the 2018 British Grand Prix. This year is Silverstone's 70th anniversary, which means all the stops are out for one big party. Will Lewis Hamilton deliver a win on home turf? Watch and find out.

SWAT

Starts 8th July

Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) stars as Daniel 'Hondo' Harrison, a locally-born and raised sergeant tasked with running the SWAT unit of the LAPD. But his loyalty to the local area runs deep, and he has to balance that with his allegiance to his brothers in blue. The show also stars Jay Harrington, Alex Russell, Lina Esco and Stephanie Sigman.

Happy Death Day

Available 13th July

Not one for the kids, this. It follows a college student who's murdered on her birthday, and then has to relive the day over and over again – sort of like Groundhog Day meets Scream. A success at the box office and with the critics, it's no wonder a sequel is in the works.

Spider-Man 3

Available 15th July

Another from the original reboot trilogy, this film again stars Tobey Maguire as the web slinging hero, Kirsten Dunst as his love interest, and was again directed by Sam Raimi. This time, the enemy is the Sandman (played by Thomas Hayden Church), but with Spider-Man infected by a Symbiote, turning him into Venom – and acting very out of character – Spidey has a lot on his plate.

Cricket ODI: England v India

england cricket

17th July

The last game of England's One Day International season sees it take on India at Headingley, just outside Leeds. All the action is live on Sky Sports Cricket.

Lucky Man season 3

Starts 20th July

Stan Lee's action crime series returns for a third season. James Nesbitt is DI Harry Clayton, a brilliant but flawed police officer who has the power to control luck. Also stars Amara Karan, Sienna Guillory, Eve Best and Darren Boyd.

German Grand Prix

22nd July

The F1 crowd descend on the legendary Hockenheim race circuit for the 2018 German Grand Prix. The 4.5km track spans over 300km over 67 laps, and is one of the most atmospheric tracks on the F1 race calendar. It might have lost its sections that ran through the forest, but it's lost none of its character.

Same Kind of Different As Me

Available 22nd July

Based on The New York Times bestseller of the same name, this is an inspirational true story of friendship, family and forgiveness. Art dealer Ron Hall (Greg Kinnear) and his wife Debbie (Renee Zellweger) have what seems like the perfect life. Until, that is, their faith and family are tested, and they form an unlikely bond with a homeless drifter. Tear-jerking stuff.

Sick Note season 2

sick note series 2

Starts 26th July

The black comedy returns, and this time Hollywood star Lindsay Lohan is joining the cast. She plays Katerina West, the daughter of the boss of Daniel Glass (Rupert Grint), a compulsive liar who's stuck in a dead-end job and failing relationship. The premise? Glass was wrongly diagnosed with a terminal illness by his incompetent doctor (Nick Frost), and promptly started lying about it.

The Mountain Between Us

Available 27th July

Two strangers, stranded on a remote, snow-covered mountain following a plane crash. Plunged into the extreme elements, they have to trust each other as they begin a treacherous journey through hundreds of miles of wilderness, each finding new levels of inner strength. What could have been a corny set-up is saved by strong performances from Kate Winslet and Idris Elba.

The Lego Ninjago Movie

Available 28th July

It might lack the zip and wit and sheer exuberance of The Lego Movie, but this is a strong spinoff nonetheless. Teenage ninja Lloyd Garmadon (Dave Franco) attempts to accept the truth about his villainous father, while at the same time countering a threat that endangers his homeland.

Hungarian Grand Prix

29th July

This tight and twisty course has been home to some of the most memorable races in F1 history, including Thierry Boutsen's victory over Aryton Senna by 0.3 seconds in 1990, and of course the 1997 race where Damon Hill overtook arch rival Michael Schumacher only to lose out on the last lap due to mechanical failure. This year's race promises to be just as exciting.
