Netflix comes to Sky Q boxes in November

Announced at the beginning of March, Netflix will be added as an app on Sky Q boxes.

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

In terms of price, Netflix on Sky Q is available through a new content package, Ultimate on Demand. Customers who have never used Spotify before will get 6 months access for free to sweeten the deal, while existing Spotify subscribers can enjoy 3 months free access if they decide to integrate their bills in with Sky too.

The new Ultimate On Demand package will cost £10 per month, and it combines Sky Box Sets (normally £5 per month, and featuring over 400 USA and United Kingdom shows) with Netflix's huge library of TV shows and movies. This includes Netflix Standard, which is £7.99pm.

Customers with Sky Q and a Netflix accounts will be able to see these services integrated for the first time from November with two simple options available for payment and viewing.

Ultimate On Demand will cost an extra £10 a month if you want to join, which is the same price as Netflix's highest package that allows for Ultra HD content and up to four concurrent screens.

Sky and Netflix shows sits side-by-side on Sky Q's content rails, some of which are tailored around the viewer's usage history. This content is adaptive to which Netflix profile is selected and also to any parental locks that have been placed on it.

You can find out more about Netflix on Sky Q, including the new features it adds, here: How Netflix works on Sky Q: Your questions answered. The two services remain isolated from each other, which also prevents the multiple Netflix profiles that you may share among your family from influencing your Sky viewing recommendations - a plus if you let your loved ones run riot with your Netflix account.

Note: You will need to have an existing Sky Q Entertainment subscription (£20 per month).

Can I watch Netflix on Sky apps? It means you can have seamless searching across both libraries and have easier access to more content without having to load up additional apps.

Rather than simply dumping all that content clumsily into a new Sky menu tab, though, the content is actually weaved throughout the Sky Q system on a very deep level.

We've long known that Netflix and Sky would be joining forces to create a brand new TV package, and we finally have all the details.

We'll be looking to fully test the system come the November roll out, so be sure to check back in to T3.com then for our definitive verdict.
