  • Netflix to arrive on Sky Q in November, other UI updates too

"We want Sky Q to be the number one destination for TV fans".

After announcing the partnership in early 2018, Sky and Netflix have now revealed details of how the service will be available. You'll find highlighted TV shows from Netflix and Sky sitting side by side in the Home page, or you can peruse each service's contents separately in the On Demand section.

The solution that Sky has developed is called Ultimate On Demand, which will cost an extra £10 per month for all new and existing customers alongside their existing Sky Q subscription (plus a 31-day rolling contract is available).

If you want Netflix Premium for things like Ultra HD and more simultaneous streams then you'll need Sky's Q Experience package on-top (and the 2TB Sky Q box), which is £12pm making a total of £22pm when you add Ultimate On Demand. Ultimate on Demand is an additional £10 a month for all new and existing customers alongside their Sky Q subscription.

When does Netflix launch on Sky Q? With Netflix, that package costs £7.99 a month.

There's no actual date for a launch with Sky now saying it will arrive at some point in November.

If you're part of the Sky Q Experience subscription, you'll get the Netflix Premium tier (normally £9.99 per month), which gives you access to 4K and HDR content and watching on four screens at the same time.

Google is shutting down YouTube Gaming (but that isn't a bad thing)
In an effort to help those who are new to content creation, YouTube is also creating a dedicated On the Rise section. But other than those meager features, there was never any reason, as a viewer, to not just use the main site or app.

SpaceX reveals Yusaku Maezawa will fly 'around the Moon' in historic announcement
SpaceX is on the verge of announcing the name of the person who would be the first private passenger on a trip around the moon . He said he often mused about what artists like Basquiat or Andy Warhol might have come up with if they'd traveled into space.


Turn on the Sky Q system with Netflix on Sky Q enabled and, seamlessly, the entire content library from Netflix is integrated into the user interface's content selections. It'll also pair up with the same Kids profiles established in Sky's mobile app, syncing up any personalised options across the ecosystem.

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.

Can I watch Netflix on Sky apps?

Of course, with Sky not supporting HDR just yet, you'll be able to see Netflix's shows in 4K only, but not HDR.

Integration means that you'll also see and be able to access Netflix content from around the Sky Q interface. You can load the app with Sky's voice search but you can't use it to voice search within Netflix - this will arrive as an update in 2019.

Netflix on Sky Q is, unsurprisingly, the excellent and easy to use Sky Q experience but now bolstered by Netflix's superb content suite.

Approaching the three year point in its lifespan, Sky Q continues to go from strength to strength then.
