Sky Movies must be one of the best known movie providers around. With over 4 million subscribers in the UK, this is an experienced company that offers top quality and a great range of movies at a fair price. You can also expand your packages to include family shows, sports and more, all of which can be watched on your TV, computer or mobile device.
SkyMovies HD offers HD movies with superior sound quality. To obtain Sky's high quality movies, you will need to have a Sky Movies box fitted in your home which acts as a receiver and makes sure your shows run properly and that you have access to all the movies you’re meant to. This also means that you can control your system using a remote control, so it is best equipped for a TV rather than a computer. However, you can still watch on computers and mobile devices, although you may need to use Sky Go. This is available at no cost to customers who have the Sky TV package but you may wish to clarify your particular package and benefits with the sales team if you’re interested in watching movies whilst on the move.
You’ll find all the latest movies on Sky Movies HD and they even get a few films up to a year before other movie subscription websites, so if you’re someone who wants to see a film first then Sky is definitely worth considering. If you’ve a particular favourite that you enjoy watching a lot then you can opt to pay to download it, plus they’ll send you a DVD copy in the post. Prices vary but are generally very affordable and offer good value for money.
Sky Movies HD isn’t the cheapest option for you if you only want to watch a few films a year. Its subscription prices are quite high and you’ll essentially need to pay for one of their main packages to get the best deals. If you’re a new customer you’ll also need to pay an installation fee of £25, and then wait for up to 2 weeks to have the equipment installed in your home. Subsequently if you’re desperate to watch a movie right now then this isn’t for you. In addition to this contracts are 12 months long, so you’d better be prepared for the long haul.
Those things taken into account, we recommend Sky Movies HD for movie fans who are interested in watching the latest releases all year round. Since you have to pay a fairly high subscription fee it would most suit someone who spends a lot of time (or plans to spend a lot of time) watching movies. The quality of the movies available is very high and the system is easy to use, offering a movies-on-demand system to suit your lifestyle, plus 11 movie channels for scheduled broadcasts. In short you’ll get a superior service from Sky, but you’ll pay more for the benefits it brings.
