Sky offers Entertainment TV deal and Sky Sports in HD for £40 a month

Tuesday, January 30th 2018 by Emma Woollacott

Sports fans have certainly got plenty to look forward to this year, with major events ranging from the Premier League to the World Darts Championship.

And now, thanks to a flash sale, Sky is offering the chance to save more than a hundred quid over the next year and a half.

Available until Thursday, the offer means signing up for a package deal on both Entertainment TV and Sky Sports in HD at a cost of £40 a month over 18 months for both services.

It's available to new customers as well as existing ones, though newbies will have to pay a minimum £20 set-up fee.

Usually, Sky Entertainment costs £20 a month for an 18-month contract, then £25 a month afterwards. Sky Sports in HD, meanwhile, is normally an extra £26 a month on top of that - so it works out at a pretty reasonable saving.

And there should be plenty worth watching. Sky recently overhauled its programming packages with the launch of Sky Entertainment, which now constitutes the basic Sky package and replaces the previous Original, Box Sets and Variety bundles.

It has a jaw-dropping 350 channels, 80 more than customers got with the Original bundle, with a wide range of entertainment, comedy, Sky exclusives and music channels.

10 Sky Sports channels

These include Sky Atlantic - home of the must-see Game of Thrones and The Tunnel - along with Sky One, Sky Living, MTV, Discovery, National Geographic, Sky News, Comedy Central and many more. More than 40 of these channels feature HD, with five times the standard definition.

And if this isn't enough, customers can personalise their service by adding on Cinema, Kids or Box Sets, for example, each for an extra fee starting at a fiver a month.

The Sky Go app, meanwhile, lets you watch any of your channels on your mobile, tablet or laptop while you're out and about - so you'll never need to miss a thing.

As for Sky Sports, this has 10 channels - enough to satisfy even the most fervent sports fan. These include dedicated channels for the Premier League - with 126 live matches this season - as well as football, cricket, golf and Formula 1.

Alongside these, the Sky Sports Action and Arena channels cover international Rugby Union, Rugby League, boxing, darts, NFL, tennis and more.

And to make absolutely sure you don't ever miss anything important, there's a Main Event channel dedicated to the biggest live events from across Sky's sports channels.

The flash sale deal includes the Sky Q 1TB box, which allows you to record three shows while watching a fourth, and which can store up to 500 hours of TV. Doubling these specs means opting for the Sky Q 2TB, increasing the set-up fee to £199.

You'll need to be pretty quick on your feet to take up the offer, though, and sign up before midnight on 1 February.
