Sky Movies is home to the latest and greatest films, from pulse-pounding thrillers and anarchic action, to tear-jerking romance and gritty drama. Sky Movies offers a number of themed channels, and the rotation of films changes to keep the selection fresh.
Add up to 11 Sky Movies channels to your viewing package, including Sky Movies Comedy, Action & Adventure, Crime & Thriller, Sci-Fi & Horror, and for brand new releases getting an exclusive showing, there’s Sky Movies Premiere.
Virgin Media TV Packages
Virgin Media offers different bundles which include fibre-optic broadband, home calls and TV. The Big Easy is an entry-level package, and you can include Sky Sports 1 or Sky Sports 2, and Sky Movies 1 or Sky Movies 2 individually, and the same applies for the next package up, the Big Bang.
The third package can be taken as a package deal with either the Sky Sports Collection or the Sky Movies Collection, and the top tier, the Big Daddy, automatically includes both Collections.
Watch on the go
Even if you’re not at home, you can still catch new films on Sky Movies or the latest live action from Sky Sports, with the new app available to iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users.
Download from the App Store, and as long as you have the premium channels included as part of your subscription, you can use your account details to log in, and watch using WiFi or mobile data.
If you are using data, remember that any preset limit will be affected by streaming the Sky content on the go, so make sure you have enough in your plan.
If you want to enjoy films or sport in stunning high definition, then you can add Sky Premium HD to your subscription. This will give you the HD channels, with enhanced picture and sound quality.
You’ll need an HD-ready TV, HD set-top box from Virgin Media and an HDMI cable. If you choose the Big Daddy viewing package then Sky Premium HD is automatically included as part of the deal.
