Buyers guide to Sky TV

Sky TV

If you’re thinking about buying a Sky TV package, our detailed and impartial buyers guide can help you decide which collection of channels is the right one for you.

We examine the different choices available to you, including dedicated sports, movies and entertainment bundles.

Why choose Sky TV?

Sky have established a strong reputation as a supplier of satellite TV. Their channel line-up includes a range of exclusive programming that you can’t find anywhere else.

As a satellite broadcaster, Sky is available throughout the UK, meaning availability shouldn’t be a concern wherever you are.

What are my options?

There are three entertainment packages available, each with an increasing number of channels included:

  • Sky Entertainment
  • Sky Entertainment Extra
  • Sky Entertainment Extra+

You can also add Sky Movies or Sky Sports to your channel line-up, and choose between either Sky+HD or Sky+HD 2TB box. Both features built in Wi-Fi, are HD and 3D ready, features an interactive programme guide, parental controls and reminder settings.

With them, you can pause, rewind and play live TV, series link your favourite programmes, record two channels at once and set your box to record remotely. You get up to 350 hours of recording space with the Sky+HD box, and approximately double that with the Sky+HD 2TB box.

Which package is right for me?

Finding the right TV package for you will be determined by what you want from your Sky channels. Other factors include:

  • Your budget
  • If you want to pay extra for Sky Movies
  • If you want to pay extra for Sky Sports
  • If you want to access either the sports or movie channels in HD or 3D

The Sky Entertainment Pack is a good choice for casual TV viewers and includes 36+ lifestyle and entertainment channels, plus 247 free to air channels.

Sky Entertainment Extra is a mid-range option, which in addition to the 247 free channels found in Sky Entertainment, has 80 standard definition and 12 HD channels.

The most comprehensive range of entertainment channels, Sky Entertainment Extra+, includes 80+ SD and 50 HD channels, plus access to Sky Movies and Sky Sports in HD, as well as Sky 3D programming.

Cable.co.uk recommends

We think that the Sky Entertainment Extra Pack provides a good balance of channels at a reasonable price, with the flexibility to expand your subscription if you end up wanting more.

Six essential questions before you buy

Before you commit to a contract, you should ask yourself these six important questions:

  1. Do you already have or can you get a Sky dish installed at home?
  2. Are you happy with committing to a 12 month contract for your TV line-up?
  3. Do you want Sky Sports in HD?
  4. Have you checked if a bundle of broadband, TV and phone would be better value?
  5. Does Sky offer the right mix of channels and programmes for you?
  6. Are you likely to use Sky Multiscreen in another room or on a mobile device?

What will I need?

To get Sky TV you’ll need:

  • A subscription (minimum 12 months) to one of Sky’s TV packages
  • A satellite dish installed on an external wall of your home
  • A Sky+HD box, connected to a telephone landline

All the technology and hardware you’ll need is provided by Sky, and will be installed by an engineer during their visit.

How do I switch to Sky?

Switching to Sky TV should be a straightforward process. The company aims to complete your installation as early as six days after you contact them, or within two weeks of getting in touch.

If you switch your phone line when you join Sky, you’ll start paying line rental at £15.40 per month and pay a one-off connection fee of £10. You’ll no longer pay line rental to your existing provider and may be able to keep your old number.

Inclusive phone calls

If you sign up for Sky line rental, the monthly fee includes unlimited weekend calls to UK landlines, plus unlimited calls to Sky contact centres. You can also add Sky Talk Anytime UK to get unlimited UK landline and 0845 / 0870 calls.

Bills and payments

You’ll pay you Sky bill once a month. This payment will cover your TV package, plus another other services you sign up for, such as broadband or home phone line. You can choose to receive your bills either electronically or through the post. You also have the option of viewing your bill on your TV under the Interactive services on your Sky+HD box.

Payments to Sky can be made by Direct Debit, with your credit or debit card, cheque, via online banking or over the counter at the Post Office. If you opt to pay with any other method than Direct Debit, you’ll be charged 50p extra for each bill.

Can I make changes to my services?

You can change your package after 30 days. If you benefited from any discounts or special offers when signing up, you may lose them depending on the changes you make. You can add broadband and phone to your Sky TV subscription at any time. If you do so, you’ll trigger a new 12 or 18 month contract for all your services, depending on what you add.

How do I sign up?

  1. Compare the different TV packages that are available. You should consider all the issues raised in this guide, and also look out for any special offers that Sky may be promoting.
  2. Click on the See Deal button next to your package. You’ll then be transferred to the Sky online shop where you can complete your sign up. Sky uses a secure ordering system, so your can be confident that your personal information is protected and safe throughout the process.

I want sky in three rooms and broadband, I don't need sports or movies so what's the best deals.

23rd January 2014

O2 sold their broadband/phone service to Sky this last year. After quite a lot of online research which included nearly signing up with the dreaded Virgin Media, I was offered a deal from Sky which I could not in all honesty refuse (unlimited broadband + free weekend calls + all TV channels with the exception of the sports and movie channels - all for £20 per month for a year!) I am on the whole happy with Sky, but I can't for the life of me understand why the broadband speed is slower than when I was with O2! After all, my property is still the same distance from the exchange, and the same copper wires are being used to deliver the service - yet I am now receiving only 4.14mbps of download speed using Safari as a browser and 4.20mbps using Chrome as a browser, as opposed to nearly 6.0mbps download speed on both browsers when I was with O2! The Sky technical services cannot seem to help - even after going through the usual resetting of the Sky router etc...! Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks in advance, voicebox

I used to be a sky customer up till last year i changed to virgin and am now going to go back to sky since we have just bought a 3d TV i was wondering what the best price i would be able to get for every thing TV broadband and phone plus 3 boxes could someone please give me information about the best deal thanks

As one of the higher paying sky customers (approx £70 a month with broadband) I feel that although their extra services are good, it shouldn't be the case that before certain news clips play on the app, you have to sit through at least 1 commercial. Sometimes longer than the news video. Certainly this should be part of the packages or at least free to their broadband customers. It's a little Irksome when Ive already paid for the channels concerned and the broadband to watch it on. Otherwise all is fine.

Hello We are currently a customer of sky and pay £59.00 a month we have entertainment extra, sports and hd, we have been a customer for a number of years we have only ever had 1 deal off them reducing payment by 20% for 6months. When I listen to friends and family saying they only pay between £36-£50 a month with multi room and movies it's very annoying, we phoned sky to ask for a 12month deal adding multi room and movies for what we pay now and they would only do 4-6monthly deals for us. Should we cancel and change the subscription into my name or would you advise on any thing else. Thank you Jackie

Our family have been Sky customers since the very beginning and we, too, were paying a large amount of money each month for a wide range of channels and decided that enough was enough and cancelled last year.

We have been bombarded with various offers, (to return), ever since but even though the offers appear very tempting they are not quite what they appear, ('Half Price'), as the offers do not include the majority of services.

In an ideal world all the major TV companies would not be stumping up obscene amounts of money to lure the biggest names in the sporting arena as it is this is what drives the prices up for everybody.

This will never change, however, and costs will never come down although it will be interesting to see how the landscape changes now that BT have joined the circus!!

Although our viewing choice has been drastically reduced we are £60+ a month better off and that is a serious amount of money per year!

Take care out there!

I am currently paying (and have been for a long time) £70-odd per month for Sky TV - this is just TV, no phone, broadband etc. I am starting to think this is wayyyyy too much money per year for TV (almost £1000). Are there any better like-for-like deals with you. I'm definitely contemplating shopping around?
