Sky Cinema to premiere original movie The Hurricane Heist on the same day as cinema release

Tuesday, February 20th 2018 by Oprah Flash

Sky Cinema customers we’ve got a treat for you. The mastermind behind Fast and Furious, Rob Cohen, has directed a new action thriller and it’s coming to the big screen and your screen at the same time.

From 6 April The Hurricane Heist, a Sky Original Film, will premiere on Sky Cinema giving its customers the advantage of not needing to pay extra or leave the house to watch the blockbuster.

The Hurricane Heist tells the tale of a team of hackers who seize the opportunity to break into a Treasury facility left vulnerable by an unstoppable hurricane that batters America’s Gulf Coast.

Will (Toby Kebbell) a stormchaser and meteorologist is caught in the middle of the mess so teams up with Casey (Maggie Grace), the only Treasurer who wasn’t chased away by the impending storm.

The hackers have 600m USD in their sights and an unbeatable storm in their favour so Will and Casey have a mission on their hands to thwart the heist of a lifetime.

In a bid to tap into the successes of Netflix and Amazon Prime, Sky recently announced plans to produce high-quality Original productions.

We don’t want you to miss out so if you don’t have Sky Cinema there are a couple of ways to get your hands on the service.

How to get Sky Cinema

If you’ve got Sky Entertainment, you can add Sky Cinema to your bundle for an extra £10 a month. This gives you access to a new premiere every day and more than 1,000 films on demand. As well as being able to watch exclusive Sky Cinema Original content while it’s in the cinema, you’ve got top titles like Sleeping Beauty, Hidden Figures and Get Out all at your disposal.

Variety is the spice of life as they say, so if you want the chance to pick and choose between Sky Cinema one month then Sky Sports the next, you can invest in NOW TV.

This is Sky’s streaming service that allows you to choose which of Sky’s premium content you want to watch each month. A Sky Cinema Pass is £9.99 a month after you have tested it out during the free 14-day trial. This means you could be a bit cheeky and wait 'til 6 April to start your trial so you can watch the movie for free. Don’t tell anyone you got that tip from us.

Virgin Media also gives you access to Sky Cinema in a couple of ways. You can pick the Mix TV bundle at £45 a month then add Sky Cinema for an extra £21 a month. Otherwise it’s slightly cheaper and better value to choose the Full House Movies bundle for £65 a month over a 12-month contract with a £20 set-up fee. What do you get for your money?

The answer is a lot of broadband and a lot of TV. You get Virgin’s middle broadband plan, the VIVID 200 with unlimited usage and download speeds up to 200Mbps. The TV part of the package gives you all the Sky Cinema channels in HD, boxsets and 230 channels. You’ll also be able to watch Netflix on your V6 box that comes with the bundle, as long as you're subscribed to it.

You can add Sky Cinema to your BT TV plan as well. If you opt for the Starter TV with unlimited broadband for £24.99 a month , you can add Sky Cinema for an additional £13.50 a month.

There are some freebies up for grabs. This plan comes with an £80 prepaid reward card and free BT Sport throughout your 18-month contract. The reward card can be spent with any retailer that accepts Mastercard.
