Netflix and Sky partner to deliver 'ultimate' package

Netflix and Sky have partnered to create a new premium subscription pack: Ultimate On Demand.

The package will bring together Sky Box Sets, which includes 400 of its UK and US series, and the full Netflix service in a single on-demand service.

Consumers will be able to access Sky original productions such as Patrick Melrose and Tin Star alongside Netflix’s original dramas, films, comedies and documentaries, which include The Crown, Stranger Things and Making a Murderer.

Recommendations for Sky and Netflix shows will share the spotlight on Sky Q’s homepage, and content from both will be available via Sky Q's search function.

"We want Sky Q to be the number one destination for TV fans," said Stephen van Rooyen, chief executive officer, Sky UK and Ireland.

"Partnering with Netflix means we will have all the best TV in one great value pack, making it even easier for you to watch all of your favourite shows."

Chris Whiteley, director business development UK/IE, Netflix, commented: "Innovation is at the core of Netflix. We are delighted to partner with Sky to offer fans a new and exciting way to access the best of entertainment from around the world."

'Ultimate On Demand' will be £10 a month for all new and existing customers alongside their Sky Q subscription and is available as a 31-day rolling contract.

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.
