This is how it is described in a Forbes article (just one example)..

[EXTRACT]

Where the Netflix/Sky partnership really gets interesting, though, is in the way Sky is integrating Netflix content into its onscreen user interface. Rather than having to open a separate Netflix app to find links to Netflix content, recommendations for both Sky’s broadcast and Netflix’s streamed shows will share the spotlight on Sky Q’s homepage. Choose a Netflix show from Sky’s menus and the stream will start playing right away; choose a Sky-hosted show and it will start to download to your receiver for playback.

Netflix content will also be included within Sky’s ‘search’ functionality, making it as easy for your Sky box to find Netflix’s Lost In Space as Sky’s live Premier League Football.

In fact, Netflix will in many ways function like just another channel on Sky’s platform - except that it won’t have a dedicated slot on Sky’s TV Guide, of course.
Like Netflix and Amazon Prime do on VM?

Re "search functionality" when aggregating providers, Sky hasn’t progressed it the over three years since that article was issued - as GrimUpNorth previously posted

Sky Q also has lots of other apps - iPlayer, Prime, peacock, discovery+, Disney+, Apple TV+ etc but the search only works on the Sky tv guide/on demand OR Netflix.
