What is Sky Store?
The Sky Store is part of Sky’s On Demand services and allows you to buy or rent an absolutely huge variety of films and TV shows.
You don't have to a Sky customer in order to access the Sky Store, being able to rent or buy content via your Sky set-top-box and the web browser on your laptop or desktop computer.
There's also a Sky Store app which is available to download for free on both iOS and Android devices and allows you to enjoy the Sky Store through your smartphone, NOW TV account or Roku set-top-box.
All of the films and TV shows you can buy to keep are available in both SD and HD but unfortunately not 4K Ultra HD.
Setting up Sky Store
Setting up your devices to access the Sky Store is incredibly straightforward no matter which one you've decided to use.
With your Sky set-top-box, all you need to do is to connect it up to your Sky broadband and you’ll be able to navigate your way through to the Store via the main Sky menu.
If you’ve chosen to use the app, you’ll first need to create a Sky ID in order to sign-in. They’re free to create and all you’ll need to do is enter your email address and come up with a secure password. Once that's done, you'll be able to sign-in to the app without any issue.
Can I watch content from the Sky Store without an internet connection?
Yes, but only on your desktop computer or smartphone and only those films or TV shows you’ve actually bought. You’ll just need to download them for offline viewing first.
Sky Store library
The Sky Store’s film and TV library spans all kind of different genres like action, comedy, horror, romance, sci-fi and fantasy and features everything from the latest Hollywood blockbusters to must-see TV and classic fan favourites.
Both the site and the app are incredibly user-friendly and easy to navigate allowing you to search for content via terms like most popular, new to rent and new to buy.
When you buy a film from the Sky Store you'll also be sent a free DVD of that film in the post.
If you don't watching something within a week of renting it, that film or TV show will automatically be deleted from your Sky box.
Once you've actually watched whatever you've bought or rented, you've got a period of 48 hours within which you can watch it as many times as you like before its automatically deleted from your system.
Sky’s rental fee
The price of your rental is automatically added onto your bill at the end of the month so you don’t have to worry about paying for anything upfront.
The cost of each film or TV show really does vary depending on when they were released, but all of Sky's prices are in line with what you'd find on the high-street or other rental services and there are always special offers on which give you money off certain options.
