Normally, that costs £7.99 a month - but then they're also getting access to Sky Box Sets which is normally a fiver a month.
Customers with a Sky Q Entertainment subscription can thus expect to get Netflix's Standard plan (2 HD streams) and Sky Box Sets in HD as part of UOD, while anybody with their premium Sky Q Experience (multi-room viewing and Ultra HD) should get Netflix's Premium plan (4 Ultra HD / 4K streams). And, should you of course want to jump into the standard Netflix app interface at any time, that's available in the Apps section of the Sky menu too.
This will place Sky original shows such as Patrick Melrose, Save Me and Tin Star as well as HBO's Game of Thrones alongside Netflix original content such as The Crown, Stranger Things, The Kissing Booth, Making a Murderer and Queer Eye.
Sky Q customers will get Netflix integration from November.
We originally reported that a partnership between Netflix and Sky was on the way back in March, but nothing has really happened since then.
If you already have a Netflix subscription, then you'll simply need to log-in on Sky with your existing details and sign-up to at least the Ultimate On Demand package. It'll also pair up with the same Kids profiles established in Sky's mobile app, syncing up any personalised options across the ecosystem.
New and existing customers on the Sky Q Experience package (formerly Sky Q Multiscreen), with a 2TB box, get Premium - up to 4K video on four screens concurrently.
Ultimate On Demand will be available before the end of the year.
Yes. If you already have a Netflix account, logging in will keep your account details including your personal profiles and all the shows you're watching etc.
This option won't show Netflix content on the homepage but the app can be launched via the remote and by voice recognition.
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. It will work with Netflix, Spotify, YouTube, Vevo and any other app on the platform.
Partner Netflix on Sky Q with the sort of hardware setup we had access to in our hands on session, a setup that included a premium 4K TV alongside Sky's own Soundbox speaker system (which T3 said was a "no-brainer for existing Sky Q customers" on review), and it's hard to direct people elsewhere for a home TV viewing experience.
That's a significant saving over getting the two separately, and comes with the convenience of consolidating your bills into a single one handled by Sky.
And the speed and seamless presentation through Sky Q of accessing the Netflix content, which is streamed pure rather than run via download play, is excellent, with the system's content rails clearly and colourfully displaying a user's content. You shouldn't notice any drop in service at any point.
