Sky Stream is the most affordable way to get Sky TV and Netflix together, with combined packages from £26 a month. Putting a wealth of content at your fingertips, it offers unmissable shows not on Freeview, and aggregates the best content from top entertainment, music and fitness apps – including Apple TV+, Amazon Prime, Disney+, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4, YouTube, Discovery+, Peacock, Fiit and more. Allowing you to quickly and easily find the best programmes and content all in one place. And just like Sky Glass, Sky Stream is constantly updated with innovative new features, so the experience just keeps getting better and better.
Stephen van Rooyen, Executive Vice President & CEO, UK & Europe, “Sky’s always reinvented the TV experience and offered the best content – but it’s not always been accessible to everyone. There couldn’t be a better time to launch our latest innovation using the Sky Glass Platform – whether you want to stream House of the Dragon, Gangs of London or Stranger Things, Sky Stream has it all. It’s the most affordable and easiest way to get Sky TV and Netflix together, offering consumers the value they are seeking right now.”
Whatever you fancy, find it in a flash
With the same smart UI (user interface) as Sky Glass, Sky Stream simplifies your TV experience, making it quicker to find something to watch whether you know what you want or need some inspiration. Forget jumping in and out of apps – if you’re looking for a show on Netflix, Disney+, iPlayer, Amazon Prime or more, they’re all in one place, so you can get to your favourite shows in seconds. There are helpful genre categories as well as voice search to find content quickly. Simply say ‘House of the Dragon,’ or ‘Show me comedy’ to search for shows or get inspiration. You can even voice search the whole of YouTube to get to what you want easily.
If you find something you love but want to watch it later, you can create a personal Playlist from apps and channels, both live and on demand. When you want to Playlist something, just click the ‘+’ on your remote and it’ll be saved in the cloud for whenever you’re ready to watch. And with Restart, a feature Sky Glass customers love, you’ll never miss the start of your show again. You can jump into any show that’s on live TV and watch from the beginning.
A perfect picture, whatever you’re watching
Everything you watch on Sky Stream is ready to enjoy in HD as standard, with UHD also available. If you have an HDR ready TV, you’ll enjoy an even more dynamic and vivid viewing experience, and if you have a compatible soundbar Sky Stream is also Dolby Atmos ready.
It couldn’t be easier to set up: simply plug Sky Stream into a power socket and your TV’s HDMI output, connect to the broadband and you’re ready to go. Sky Stream is compatible with any broadband provider, with a minimum speed of 10Mbps required.
Unrivalled entertainment, unbeatable price
With Sky Stream, Sky is offering ultimate flexibility and great value. You can opt for either a 31-day rolling plan from £29 a month that can be cancelled at any time, or an 18-month contract from just £26 a month, both of which include Sky Ultimate TV & Netflix Basic. You can also add on packs and services including Sky Cinema which offers Paramount+ at no extra cost, Sky Sports, BT Sport and UHD & Dolby Atmos.
If you’d like Sky TV on more than one telly, upgrade to the Whole Home pack for an extra £12 a month, letting you have up to five additional Sky Stream devices wherever you’d like in your home.
There is a £39.95 set-up fee (or £20 if you take an 18-month contract), no need for engineer installation, and next-day delivery is standard so you can enjoy great content with Sky Stream quickly and easily. Plus, there’s a one-year warranty.
Smartest TV line-up yet
Sky Stream is the latest addition to Sky’s TV product family, providing a range of ways to watch amazing content. Sky Glass is the only TV with Sky inside, combining innovative hardware, software and content for the smartest TV experience yet, no dish or box required. If you’ve already got a TV you love, Sky Stream connects seamlessly to deliver the fantastic Sky Glass entertainment experience to your existing TV. If you don’t want to stream, there’s the award-winning Sky Q satellite service, which has all your favourite channels and apps in one place, as well as a hard drive for recordings.
