Sky has confirmed Netflix will make its debut on Sky Q in November. Its arrival coincides with the launch of a new Sky subscription pack that will combine Sky’s on demand platform with the full Netflix service.
Recommendations for both Sky and Netflix shows will appear on Sky Q’s homepage. Netflix shows will also be discoverable through the Search facility.
“Innovation is at the core of Netflix. We are delighted to partner with Sky to offer fans a new and exciting way to access the best of entertainment from around the world,” said Chris Whiteley, Director Business Development UK/IE, Netflix.
Ultimate On Demand will be £10 a month for all new and existing customers alongside their Sky Q subscription, and with a 31-day rolling contract available. Netflix customers will be able to move their account to Sky or sign in with their existing accounts.
“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,” said Stephen van Rooyen, Chief Executive Officer, Sky UK and Ireland.
The £10 pricepoint equates to Netflix’s top tier Premium pack.
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 Experience (multi-room viewing and Ultra HD), will enjoy Netflix’s Premium plan (Ultra HD, 4 stream).
Titles available to download can be watched on the go, with Sky shows available through the Sky Go app and Netflix shows through the Netflix app.
