BT offers movies package as Sky agreement reached

Fresh signs that the relationship between BT and Sky might be healing.

The two have signed a multi-year contract that will see BT customers able to watch Sky Movies for an additional monthly subscription, from 26 October.

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 UK’s 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.

Alan Green, director of BT TV said that they "believe this gives a tremendous boost to our BT TV film offering."
