Sky and Netflix are joining forces on a new subscription package

Sky Netflix Sky and Netflix are joining forces on a new subscription package

If you subscribe to Sky Q's premium subscription, that's exactly what you'll get through Sky.

Ultimate on Demand is available on a 31-day rolling contract, and can be easily signed up for through the Netflix app on Sky Q. Once a customer has signed up for Ultimate on Demand, any existing Netflix account can be automatically moved payment-wise into the new Sky Ultimate on Demand package, meaning that users stop paying the singular Netflix fee and now just pay for Ultimate on Demand.

Netflix content like Stranger Things is integrated into the Sky Q system at a deep level.

If you're part of the Sky Q Experience subscription, you'll get the Netflix Premium tier (normally £9.99 per month), which gives you access to 4K and HDR content and watching on four screens at the same time.

The two companies have announced that Netflix will now be integrated into Sky Q, meaning customers won't have to launch a separate app to enjoy the likes of House of Cards after a few episodes of Game of Thrones.

How much does Netflix cost on Sky Q?

The combined cost for Ultimate On Demand is £10 per month.

You will be able to open apps through voice.

Sky will launch its Ultimate On Demand bundle in November, which includes a monthly Netflix subscription and Sky Box Sets - the firm's own on demand service that offers 400 United Kingdom and US TV series to binge on. As with Netflix apps on devices and the website, shows will be streaming only on Sky's integration.

Note: You will need to have an existing Sky Q Entertainment subscription (£20 per month).

The "Ultimate On Demand" subscription pack will bring together some 400 United Kingdom and US Sky Box Sets with the full Netflix service - allowing viewers to access Sky Originals like Tin Star, HBO content like Game of Thrones, and Netflix series like The Crown and Stranger Things. Read our Sky Q review if you're not sure about making the jump.

In terms of watching Netflix and Sky content on the go, we can confirm that while content mixes in Sky Q, titles available to download can only be watched through their origin maker's app, be that Sky Go or Netflix.

Can I get Netflix on Sky+?

To try and make this integration as simple as possible, payment for the Ultimate On Demand pack will be added to customers' monthly Sky bills and all Netflix profiles will also be instantly transferred. You shouldn't notice any drop in service at any point. This amounts to more than 2,000 hours of Ultra HD content across Sky and Netflix.
