How to compare and buy Sky packages

How do I compare different packages?

You’re in the right place if you’re looking to compare Sky TV deals. We have all the latest Sky TV packages and offers in our comparison table, just ripe for the comparing.

It’s easy to compare with our comparison page

All our Sky TV deals are listed in order of price with the cheapest at the top. You can reorder them by choosing a new field from the ‘sort by’ menu above the table. To learn more about an individual deal, simply click on its name. This will bring up a window full of information about the deal, including the available channels, installation cost and overall price. Once you’ve chosen a deal, navigate to the right of the package and click the ‘see deal’ button.

Availability

To receive Sky TV you have to have a satellite dish installed on your property. You can get Sky TV at any property that has a clear sightline of the south sky. Sky broadband is another matter entirely. Broadband is required for on demand TV content. See if you can get it by entering your postcode in the checker at the top of the page.

Check the detail

Before you jump into comparing Sky TV bundles, there are a few details to consider.

Make sure you’re getting the right channels

Sky has hundreds of television channels, with over 400 channels in top-tier packages. To see what channels are included in your selected deal, click the deal’s name and navigate to the ‘Digital TV’ tab.

You have to pay an upfront cost

There’s an upfront payment involved with all Sky TV deals. This one-off bill goes towards installation costs and, if you’ve selected broadband, router delivery.

Sky TV is subject to a 12-month contract

All Sky TV offers are subject to at least a 12-month contract. You won’t be able to leave during this initial year without incurring penalties. Be certain you can afford the monthly payments before you sign up to avoid any unpleasantness in the future.

Why choose Sky TV?

Here are three great reasons to join the popular TV provider.

Hundreds of TV channels

Sky has more TV channels than any other UK provider. The basic Sky TV bundle has around 300 channels as standard (though a good portion of these are radio channels). The top-tier bundles boast over 430 channels and will keep even the most ardent channel hopper entertained.

Benefit from great features with the Sky+HD box

The Sky+HD box comes for free with any Sky TV package. It lets you pause, rewind, and record up to 185 hours of live television content. Not only that, it also lets you record an entire series automatically. If you have Sky broadband and the Sky Hub wireless router (included free with Sky broadband packages), you can watch TV on demand and catch-up content.

Sky Go is provided free

Sky Go is a TV on demand and catch-up service available to all Sky TV customers for free. To use Sky Go you’ll need access to a wi-fi connection, whether through your home broadband router or at one of the thousands of Sky wi-fi hotspots dotted around the UK. If you want to download shows to watch later, you’ll have to upgrade to Sky Go Extra – though this includes a monthly fee.

Pros & cons

We’ve listed three pros and three cons to choosing Sky TV as your home television package.

Pros

  • Hundreds of TV channels
  • Sky+HD box for recording
  • Sky Go is provided free

Cons

  • Installation requires satellite dish
  • Broadband required for TV on demand
  • Multiscreen is expensive
  • Which Sky TV bundle is right for me?

There are several Sky TV bundles available. Finding the right one for you can be difficult, so we’ve briefly described the three most popular bundles.

The Original Bundle is great entry-level option

Is budget an issue for you? Or do you just want a small TV package, with a few great channels? If this is the case, then Sky’s Original Bundle could be right for you. With over 250 channels, including such gems as Sky Atlantic and several in HD, there’s bound to be something for everyone, and the low monthly price won’t break the bank.

The Variety Bundle is full of choice

The next level up is the Variety Bundle. This costs a bit more than the Original Bundle, but comes with more high quality channels. You can see exactly what’s available by clicking the deal names in the comparison list up top. If Sky’s Original Bundle doesn’t have the right channels for you, then the Variety Bundle might.

The Family Bundle is ideal for big households

Do you have a big family that love regularly settling down in front of the TV for a long night of telly? Then the Family Bundle may be ideal. There are a huge number of kids channels, documentary options, music channels and entertainment channels. Not only that, it also comes with over 50 HD channels. The one drawback is the price – this package is far more expensive than the smaller options.

What will I need?

Just purchasing a Sky TV deal isn’t enough to get your TV experience underway. You’ll have to wait up to two weeks for installation, and there are also a couple of extra things you may wish to consider.

Installation requires a satellite dish

Sky’s television service operates through a satellite dish that is linked to your Sky+HD box. As you might imagine, having a satellite dish installed comes with a whole host of difficulties. If you’re in a rented property you’ll have to get permission from your landlord before you go ahead with installation. Similarly, if you’re in a listed building, you may have to get permission from the local council. The actual installation process itself shouldn’t take long, but you’ll still have to be home for when the engineer visits.

You need broadband for on-demand content

Many Sky TV deals come with TV on demand content, such as box sets of old and new television shows. To watch this content you need Sky broadband. You won’t need to choose fibre broadband – the basic up to 17Mbps packages will do, even for streaming HD content.

You can take Sky Multiscreen if you have a big household

Does your family frequently get into rows over the remote? In that case it may be worth taking Sky Multiscreen. Sky Multiscreen gives you multiple Sky set-top boxes so you can watch different shows at the same on different televisions. These can go in any room of the house, from the kids' bedrooms to the attic.

How do I switch?

You’ve chosen a Sky TV deal, signed up, and now you’re just waiting for the engineer to install your Sky dish. Don’t sit back just yet. There’s one important step you shouldn’t overlook.

You’ll have to contact your current TV provider when you switch

If you’ve switched from another TV provider, such as Virgin Media or TalkTalk, you will need to let them know you’ve switched. If you don’t, you may end up paying for two TV services. The best way to let them know is over the phone. If you’re a bit on the shy side, you can always send them an email, though the cancellation process may take longer.

Watch out for termination fees

You’ll incur termination fees if you cancel your current TV subscription while still within contract. The longer you have left on your contract, the more you will have to pay out to cancel. This can be both frustrating and costly. Be doubly sure that you’re out of contract before you switch if you want to avoid these termination charges.

Six essential questions before you buy

  1. Am I happy to have a Sky dish installed?
  2. Am I willing to sign up for a 12-month contract?
  3. How many channels do I want?
  4. Do I want Sky Movies?
  5. Do I want Sky Sports?
  6. Can I afford the monthly payments?
  7. Cable.co.uk recommends

To avoid paying for more than you need, it’s worth making a list of your favourite channels and seeing if these are included in the smaller (and cheaper) Sky TV packages.
