Three months free Sky Glass plus six months free Sky Sports

This deal is aimed at easing you into what is actually not the cheapest broadband and TV combo out there. It is, however, with it offering an amazing six months of Sky Sports for nothing, one of the best. It's also a little niche, which we'll get into in our deal breakdown below.

Reasons to buy

  • Free Sky Sports
  • You get a telly
  • First three months TV free

Reasons to avoid

  • Limited availability on full fibre
  • 48-month contract
  • Pricier after offer period

Sky Glass + Entertainment + Netflix + Ultrafast

Three months free TV and six months free Sky Sports

So why is this package a little niche? Well, Sky Glass comes as an actual physical television (specs at bottom of this page). And that means you're going to need a new TV in order to take advantage of this. If you already have a TV you plan to use, you'll want to take a look at Sky Stream packages instead:

And if that weren't niche enough, you'll also have to live somewhere you can get Sky Ultrafast (full fibre), which is currently only around one in four UK homes. Sky Ultrafast is a 145Mbps full fibre service. You can use hit the button (above) and enter your postcode to find out if you are living somewhere it's available. Provided the answer is yes to both questions ('Do I need a TV?' and 'Can I get full fibre where I live?') then, well, this deal is pretty sweet. You'll get the TV part of your subscription for nothing for the first three months, meaning you'll only pay £14 per month till March (at the time of writing).

The best part, though? Sky Sports is free for the first six months of your contract, access to which is normally an extra £25 per month.

Conclusion

Sky Glass is essentially the same as Sky Stream, the new-ish way to get Sky TV via a streaming 'Puck' rather than via a satellite dish. The big difference is that with Sky Glass you get an actual, physical television with all the Sky Stream gubbins built in. If you're thinking of upgrading your TV and the content and channels you have access to, it's a great choice, especially considering you won't pay much more than you would pay for Sky Stream on its own, with the kicker being the four-year contract. Right now, Sky Glass, when taken up alongside Sky Ultrafast broadband, is available with the first three months of TV for free, and six months of free Sky Sports.
