      BT and Sky reach agreement to add Sky Movies to BT TV

      BT and Sky reach agreement to add Sky Movies to BT TV

      "BT and Sky have signed a multi-year contract which will see Sky Movies made available through BT TV.

      BT will offer Sky Movies for a monthly subscription that customers can add to their existing BT TV package from October 26.

      The agreement means that BT will be able to offer its TV customers the option to bolt-on Sky Movies whether they are customers with the YouView box or the latest Vision + box. For Sky, the deal supports Skys growing wholesale content business.
      BT TV customers will be able to enjoy the latest movies across 11 Sky Movies channels, in standard definition, both as streamed live channels and on-demand for those with BT Infinity fibre broadband. For customers with regular BT broadband Sky Movies is only available on-demand.
      Sky Movies is the UKs most popular subscription movies service giving access to over 700 different movies on demand including brand new exclusive premieres every week from major Hollywood studios such as Disney, Fox, Paramount, Sony, Warner Bros., and Universal.

      Sky Movies subscribers can choose from more of the latest and biggest movies first, at least 12 months before any online subscription service. Premieres in October include Argo, Django Unchained, Les Miserables and Gangster-Squad. Zero Dark Thirty and Life Of Pi will premiere in November.
      The agreement includes Sky Movies Premiere, Sky Movies Showcase, Sky Movies Greats, Sky Movies Disney, Sky Movies Family, Sky Movies Action & Adventure, Sky Movies Comedy, Sky Movies Crime & Thriller, Sky Movies Drama & Romance, Sky Movies Sci Fi & Horror and Sky Movies Select.
      Alex Green, director of BT TV, said: We are delighted to have reached this agreement with Sky to enable our TV customers to enjoy Sky Movies and its superb offering of films for every taste, including the latest blockbusters. We believe this gives a tremendous boost to our BT TV film offering.
      Rob Webster, Director of Skys Commercial Group, adds: We are pleased to extend the distribution of Sky Movies to BT TV customers. Following the conclusion of commercial negotiations, BTs customers can now enjoy access to the UKs most popular subscription movies service. In helping even more UK homes enjoy Sky Movies this agreement also supports our wholesale content business.

      BT Sport is already available through the Sky EPG on channels 413/426 and 414/427 (HD/SD). ESPN, which is also now provided through BT, is available on channels 417 & 433.

      However you need to contact BT directly and you cannot add them using Sky's Customer Services.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps

      If you are a BT Broadband user then Standard Definition is free and HD 3 per month. If you do not use BT Broadband then you can buy the channels direct from BT for 12 (SD) and 15 (HD) per month respectively.

      I think there may also be an initial 15 "set up" fee as well.
