SKY is back with a big new deal, an important new upgrade and more content in full 4K resolution.
There’s some good news for Sky fans with the satellite TV firm revealing a new money-saving deal along with an important bonus feature and extra 4K content.
If you’re thinking of making the move to Sky then you can currently take advantage of a number of deals with some including Sky Sport and Entertainment at a reduced price.
There’s three bundles currently available at a discount with the Kids entertainment bundle reduced to £27 per month – saving £5 – Live action bundle now £42 – saving £8 – and the Ultimate home experience bundle now £50 – saving £7.
It’s worth noting that deals require you to sign up to an 18-month contract so make sure you’re happy to be locked into this deal before signing up.
That’s not the offer with Sky’s NOW TV services giving customers the chance to save money off Sports.
From today, new and existing customers can save up to 40% on the Football Season Ticket. For a one-off payment of just £199 for 10 months you can catch another action-packed title race, with 128 live Premier League games.
As well as dropping prices, Sky has also just announced a big new feature coming to its Sky Q platform.
The change, which is expected to arrive on set-top boxes next month, will show in-depth information about the content of movies you might be about to watch.
The ratings are part of a new Parents’ Guide on Sky Q and have been created in partnership with Common Sense Media.
Sky says that its Parents’ Guide is designed to help families choose movies that are not only age-appropriate but also educational.
Once the update arrives on the Sky Q box customers will then see a new Guide menu when they select a movie from Sky Cinema, Sky Store or from a partner movie channel.
The guide then provides a unique zero-to-five rating for each film across seven different categories including: Violence & Scariness • Positive Messages • Consumerism • ’Sexy Stuff’ • Positive Role Models & Representation • Language • Drinking, Drugs & Smoking • Educational Value
“The New Parents’ Guide, which provides expert guidance on everything from the educational value of a movie through to the violence it contains, adds to the wide range of products we offer to safety-conscious parents,” said Stephen van Rooyen, CEO UK & Ireland.
“From toddlers to teens, it is our responsibility to keep families safe on Sky – we’ve launched Broadband Buddy so families can manage their internet access, while kids can safely watch their favourite characters on the Sky Kids app.”
One final bonus for Sky fans who have the more premium 2TB Sky Q box is more 4K content arriving next month.
