As long as people keep watching it, Sky will keep repeating it. Cost effective for them!

Sky introduces new Netflix bundle.

https://www.broadbandtvnews.com/2020...eid=3598503789

Quote:
Sky Ultimate TV on Sky Q is priced at £25, which the platform says is the lowest price available for the combination. The price then rises to £29 per month after the introductory offer period.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Does anyone not have HD?

Quote:
Sky Ultimate TV includes Netflix Basic, meaning that customers need to add the HD package (£6 a month) to upgrade to Netflix Standard and premium HD channels. Customers with the HD package can also add on Ultra HD (£4 a month) to upgrade to Netflix Premium and Ultra HD

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

There is more detail on the new Ultimate TV bundle here https://www.digitaltveurope.com/2020...te-tv-package/

However, notably missing are any kids channels (which cost an extra £5 per month), Sky Cinema channels (an additional £11 per month) and sports (£20 per month for 18 months, rising to £23 per month after).

When all is said, early adopters could spend up to £85 per month (rising to £88 after the 18 month offer on sports ends) on the new package, with an extra initial £20 set up charge. Users will also be wary of the small print that details “prices may change during this period.”

I can see Uefa doing the same with a new package of champions league rights and Europa League rights for streaming only. 1 game per week from each competition. Rights holders want to create competition for their rights. It's pretty much how Amazon got their foot in the door. I can see Dazn or Amazon sitting with nearly 50 live games per season on the cheap with Sky and BT still able to show the same amount of games. Would not surprise me if Dazn snap up the Six Nations

Not sure what paying for Six Nations gives a streamer - competition comprising of 5 weekends spread over 7 weeks.

Amazon only got 2 match days worth of Premier League football and it was all done and dusted within a few weeks in December.

That's what Sky were angling for, but they did not get that exclusive deal in the end.

There was nothing to stop VM putting the app on their platform, even under Sky's proposal. It was all about integrated programming onto their system, not exclusive access.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

After a bit of googling the other day I established that it’s running on Samsung smart TVs in the USA already, so I’m assuming it will become available to download towards the end of this month on smart TVs in the uk.
