PICS: Netflix’s Latest Announcement Is Going To Change The Way We Watch Television Forever

Darragh Berry

Somethings were just made to go together.

Ham and Cheese for a toastie, maltesers and popcorn for a movie snack, and Netflix and Sky Q.

That’s right, people. In November, Netflix is coming to Sky Q and with it, a new Sky subscription pack: Ultimate On Demand.

Ultimate On Demand will be the UK and Ireland’s biggest on demand TV service, bringing together for the first time Sky Box Sets, which boasts 400 of the best UK and US series, and the full flipping Netflix service with its great range of global entertainment.

So you’ll be able to contemplate rewatching Game of Thrones or Stranger Things all while using Sky Q.

This integration just means it’ll be easier than ever to find what you love and to discover those hidden gems too.

Recommendations for Sky and Netflix shows will share the spotlight on Sky Q’s homepage and with Sky Q’s super-smart search function it’ll be a breeze to set sail for Riviera, catch up on Narcos or binge-watch Bulletproof.

Here’s what it’ll look like:

Ultimate On Demand will be €16 a month for all new and existing customers alongside their Sky Q subscription, with a 31-day rolling contract available.

Existing Sky Q customers with Netflix will be able to easily move their account to the new pack or sign in to the Netflix app on Sky Q using their existing Netflix account details.


Stephen van Rooyen, Chief Executive Officer, Sky UK and Ireland, said: “We want Sky Q to be the number one destination for TV fans. Partnering with Netflix means we will have all the best TV in one great value pack, making it even easier for you to watch all of your favourite shows.

Customers with a Sky Q Entertainment subscription will get Netflix’s Standard plan (HD 2 streams) and Sky Box Sets in HD as part of Ultimate On Demand. And customers with Sky Q’s premium subscription, Sky Q Multiscreen (multi-room viewing and Ultra HD), will enjoy Netflix’s Premium plan (Ultra HD, 4 streams) – that’s more than 2,000 hours of Ultra HD content across Sky and Netflix.

The payment for the Ultimate On Demand pack will be added to customers’ monthly Sky bills.
