You can now access streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney Plus through Sky TV.
By bundling Netflix and Sky TV together, you can combine your subscriptions to both services into one package. You will therefore not only combine your bills into one place but you can also access all your content in one place.
The Netflix and Sky TV offers currently available allow you to access both Netflix and Sky content via your Sky Q set-top box. This means you’re able to search and stream all your content in one place without having to switch between apps.
The Sky Q TV service's major selling point is that it lets you pause and pick up content on multiple devices and TVs around the home (provided you sign up for a Sky Multiscreen subscription).
The Sky Q service is based on the Sky Q set-top boxes. You can either get the Sky Q 1TB box or the more expensive Sky Q 2TB box.
Both Sky Q TV boxes let you record multiple channels simultaneously while watching TV live on another channel and offer storage for hundreds of hours of TV.
However, the major differentiator between the 1TB and 2TB boxes is that the latter lets you stream TV to more devices and TVs around the home. The 2TB box also lets you watch TV in UltraHD (4K).
Sky Q set-top boxes are now standard across all Sky TV bundles after Sky phased out Sky+ boxes in 2016.
Sky TV offers access to a few additional services:
Sky Go is free to Sky customers and lets you watch Sky TV on your iPad, iPhone, laptop, Xbox 360 or selected Android smartphones while you’re out and about.
But of course, you can only use this to watch the channels you’ve subscribed to through your Sky TV package.

Sky Q Multiscreen enables customers to watch Sky TV packages in different rooms around the house simultaneously. In order to enjoy this kind of freedom, you’ll need a Sky Q box, a Sky Q Mini box for each additional TV and a Sky Multiscreen subscription. You'll also need to pay a one-off charge for each TV you want to watch Sky TV on.
For now, you do need a satellite dish for Sky, but the company recently announced they'll be offering IPTV next year. Until then, find out how to watch Sky without a satellite or how to get Sky in a block of flats.
