Sky Cinema Sky-Fi will bring together all that's great about the genre, from iconic franchises such as Star Wars and Star Trek, to classics such as Blade Runner and Close Encounters. It is another innovative offering for our customers bringing the sci-fi genre to life, re-affirming our position as the UK and Ireland's leading in-home movies service."
