Introducing Sky Signature: Sky’s new Entertainment package
Sky has launched a new version of its Entertainment deal called Sky Signature.
Sky Signature, also simply just called Sky TV, is Sky’s base TV deal which all new customers will receive. It contains plenty of great live and on-demand content for you to enjoy but if you’d like more, you’re free to customize your deal with Sky’s many add-ons.
Sky TV + Superfast Broadband + Sky Pay As You Talk
£39.00 a month (down from £57.00)
- Over 500 box sets to stream whenever
- Average download speed of 59Mbps
- Only charged for the calls you make
What’s included with Sky Signature?
All of the following is included with your Sky Signature deal.
Over 300 live TV channels
These include Sky Max, Fox, Sky Comedy, E!, Comedy Central, MTV, Sky Sports Mix and of course, the premium Sky Atlantic.
As well as producing its own excellent content like Gangs of London and I Hate Suzie, this is the only place in the UK where you can catch the latest acclaimed series from US network HBO. This includes such heavyweights as Succession, Euphoria and Dexter: New Blood.
Over 500 on-demand box sets from the UK and US
Rather than being sold as a completely separate add-on, Sky Box Sets has now been rolled into Sky Signature.
There’s still a huge variety of content available to stream from unmissable Sky originals and small screen classics to many of the latest big name hits.
A Sky Q 1TB box
There’s three different versions of Sky’s next-generation set top box available but the Sky 1TB model is what’s included with the Sky Signature deal.
It allows you to record up to six shows while watching a seventh and store up to 500 hours of SD content. Glossy HD viewing and the ability to stream to two Sky Q Mini boxes simultaneously is supported, but you’ll need to purchase the relevant HD and Multiscreen add-ons in order to do this.
If you’ve missed your favourite show, there’s also a 30 day catch-up service available from the Sky Q homepage. There’s plenty of channels to choose from including many of the standard Freeview channels, Sky Atlantic, Sky One, Sky Witness, Sky Comedy and TLC.
A number of apps come pre-installed on the Sky Q 1TB box including Netflix, YouTube, Spotify, YouTube Kids, Disney+, Sky News and BBC iPlayer. For some of these, you’ll need to login with an existing account or head online to create one.
The Sky Go app
Sky Signature customers have free access to Sky Go which you can access via a web browser or the app that’s available on a variety of smart devices.
It gives you the ability to stream both live and on-demand content from your Sky Signature deal anywhere with a reliable internet connection. You can register up to six devices on one Sky Go account and stream on two of these concurrently.
If you want to download content for offline viewing, you’ll need to upgrade to Sky Go Extra for an additional £5 a month.
Sky TV + Netflix + Cinema
£37.00 a month (down from £57.00)
- Enjoy all of the greatest HBO shows on Sky Atlantic
- Over 1,000 great films to stream on demand in HD
- A huge catalogue of Netflix originals to stream
Is Netflix included with Sky Signature?
No, but you can take Netflix with Sky by purchasing the Ultimate TV add-on. This folds the cost of your Netflix subscription into your Sky bill for extra convenience. You’ll receive access to the basic Netflix tier so you can stream and download content on one device at a time.
To upgrade to Netflix standard, which means you can stream to two devices simultaneously and watch in HD, you’ll need to purchase the Sky HD add-on. To unlock Netflix’s premium tier and be able to stream to 4 devices at the same time and watch in 4K Ultra HD, the Sky UHD add-on is required.
How much is Sky Signature?
The price you’ll pay for Sky Signature will vary depending on when you purchase it as there’s often a deal or money off to be had. Generally speaking, it will be around £31 a month.
