Instead of providing customers with a set collection of channels, Sky allows customers to choose from a range of packages so that they only have to pay to watch the TV they enjoy watching, and don’t have to flick through channels they don’t want. The two base packages are Sky Entertainment and Sky Entertainment Extra. Sky Entertainment includes 38 comedy and drama channels as well as the UK’s widest range of free-to-air channels. Sky Entertainment Extra contains over 80 channels, including kids’ channels, documentaries, lifestyle channels, news channels and more.
Once customers have chosen their base package, they can then add on either Sky Movies or Sky Sports (or both). Sky movies includes 12 different channels covering movies of every genre from cheesy chick flicks to gory horror movies. There’s even a Sky Premiere channel, which brings you new blockbusters every week, so you’ll never run out of movies to watch. Sky Sports brings you six different channels which collectively cover over 100 different sports, including a channel exclusively for F1 racing. Customers can also choose to add on additional channels such as the MGM movie channel or ESPN.
The great thing about Sky is that you can not only choose what you watch, but also when and how you watch it. The Sky+ box allows you to pause and rewind TV, including live TV, so that you can enjoy your favourite programmes without having to worry about missing any due to annoying interruptions. If you’re going out and you’re worried about missing a programme, you can record it and come back to it later, and just to be extra safe, you can use the series link tool to record an entire series, so you don’t have to worry about missing a single episode.
As well as all this, when you connect your Sky+ box to your broadband router, you can access a huge range of on demand content, plus a 7 day catch-up feature, so if you have missed anything, or if you just feel like watching something that isn’t on, you can search for it online. Plus, with an internet connection you can watch your favourite Sky programmes on your mobile or another portable device wherever you are with the Sky Go app, perfect for catching up with your favourite shows when you’re out and about with a bit of time to kill.
Because the Sky+ box has so much to offer, it’s inevitable that there are going to be some arguments over the TV remote now and again. This is a problem which can easily solved with Sky Multiroom. Sky Multiroom allows you to access your Sky service in different rooms in your house so everyone can watch what they want at the same time.
There are often Sky+ deals available exclusively to new customers, so if you’re thinking of singing up it’s worth taking a look. If you are an existing customer and thinking of upgrading your service, there are also Sky+ deals which you can take advantage of. Make your Sky service even better by combining it with Sky talk and Sky broadband.
