Home Active – Sky delivering movies on the same day as the cinemas

With the coronavirus closing leisure activities, restaurants, pubs, coffee-shops and cinemas; we’re all spending a lot more time at home. So, with TV, radio and the internet our connection to the outside world, Sky have bit of good news for us.

I actually decided to cancel Sky TV recently, but if you’re a subscriber you’ll be getting a new feature from April 6th. In partnership with NBCUniversal, they’ll be pushing out movies on the same day as their global cinema release. Just head to the Sky Store and you’ll soon be able to get movies like Trolls World Tour. That’s pretty good considering that the cinema is probably closed.

Sky are also announcing that Sky Go Extra will be free for all customers. This adds up to three screens at the same time. No only that, but Sky Talk customers will get free calls to UK landlines from this weekend until the end of April.

For Sky Mobile customers, there’s also 10GB of free data in the Piggybank.

Stephen van Rooyen, EVP & CEO for Sky, told us..

We’re working hard at Sky to make sure we continue to look after our customers. We’re also introducing some things to help make life a little easier for anyone at home trying to work, stay connected to loved ones, or keep the family entertained.

On Friday you’ll be able to watch The Hunt, The Invisible Man and Emma via Sky Store. In addition, YouTube kids and Disney+ will be coming to Sky Q in the coming weeks.
