Netflix is now available on Sky Q. The streaming service has been available on rival platforms for years, but has only just arrived on Sky’s top-of-the-range TV service.
It’s more deeply integrated than on rival services. Subscribers will see Netflix content appear alongside shows from Sky, the BBC, Channel 4 and others in the main menu, though only if you take Sky’s new Ultimate On Demand package.
This costs £10 a month on top of your existing Sky package, and includes Sky Box Sets, which gives you over 500 UK and US TV series available to watch on demand.
Those not opting for Ultimate On Demand can just open the Netflix app and browse solely Netflix content, as you would on other platforms. It costs £7.99 a month, though will be billed separately – if you take Ultimate On Demand, you’ll only have one monthly bill to pay, which should make it easier to budget and to manage your household cashflow.
In order to get Ultimate On Demand, you’ll need a Sky Q Entertainment subscription as well, which costs £20 a month. So Netflix, Sky Box Sets and Sky Q Entertainment will cost you a total of £30 a month.
You can also take the step up to Sky Q Experience (previously known as Sky Multiscreen), which gives you two streams on the go, the ability to stream to Sky Q Mini boxes, side loading and Ultra HD content, along with Netflix Premium (which gives you viewing on four screens at once, as well as UHD content). That costs £12 a month, on top of the £10 a month you’ll be paying for Ultimate On Demand and £20 a month Sky Q Entertainment package, taking your total to £42 a month.
