If you're looking for the best current deals for Sky TV in the UK, you've come to the right place. Each week we take a look at the latest and best Sky TV packages to make sure we're always recommending the best Sky deals currently available.
And if you're looking to add a Sky broadband deal with your TV bundle, we've got you sorted there, too!
Step 1: Everyone gets the basic Sky TV package
Everyone who signs up for Sky TV has to begin with the basic Sky Entertainment package. From there you can add the extras like Kids channels, Movies and Sky Sports etc.
We've outlined this basic package for you below so if you're planning on opting for the cheapest option, the below deal. For everyone else, you can scroll down and pick from the latest deals on Sky Q, Sky Movies, Sky Sports etc.
Sky Entertainment | £20 setup fee | £25 a month
For a flat rate of £25 a month you're getting over 300 Sky channels including Sky Comedy, Sky Atlantic, Sky Sports News, Fox, MTV, National Geographic and many more. And if that isn't enough you're also getting access to the whole of Netflix's library! Just to give you a taste of what these channels include, you'd be able to watch one of the most popular HBO shows ever - Chernobyl, as well as Modern Family, Game of Thrones, Parks and Recreation, Watchmen and many more.View Deal
Step 2: Check for relevant deals
If you want to check out all of the latest Sky packages you can go straight to the Sky website. But if you're asking us, there are a couple of standout offers to pick right now - we have them in full below. If you don't like any of these options you can see the 'always available' Sky add-ons like Sky Sports below.
At the moment, Sky isn't going big with discounts on standalone TV plans. For the biggest savings right now, you have to go all in with a Sky TV and broadband deal. So if you're able to switch broadband provider then you're in the box seat for the best deals.
The good news for everyone is that as a new customer, once you purchase a Sky TV package, the Sky Q 1TB box comes as part of the bundle. So you don't need to worry about having to purchase the device separately.
And if you're wondering what a Sky Q is and whether you need it or not, just keep reading as we explain this all below.
Sky TV and Cinema | 18 months | Sky Q | Sky Cinema + Netflix | £20 set-up |
£44 £36 a month
This is a fantastic deal for those looking primarily for entertainment and movies. With this package you're getting over 1,000 movies on demand in HD, over 300 Sky channels and full access to Netflix. And with Sky Cinema you're getting a new movie premiere every day.
Sky TV + Broadband Superfast | 18 months | Sky Q | Basic Sky TV plan | 59Mb avg speed | £29.95 set-up |
£52 £39 a month

Step 3: Select your add-ons
Sky TV deal add-ons are much easier to understand since the reshuffle. Better yet you get to customize and create your perfect Sky TV package, this is ideal for new or existing customers.
Sky TV in HD | £4 a month
This is one of the most essential add-ons to any Sky TV package. If you have a HD TV, you'll want to upgrade to HD and enjoy your content with five times more detail than the old standard definition pictures. View Deal
Ultra HD + HD | £8 a month
So you may be asking, what's the difference between HD and ultra HD? Well according to Sky, with Ultra HD you're getting "four times the detail of HD". Plus, it gives you access to watch Netflix on four screens rather than just two. So if you want the best screen quality, we recommend getting this add-on. View Deal
Sky Sports | £23 a month
Watch live action from all 8 Sky Sports channels, in HD as standard (you'll get 4K if you've selected the Ultra HD add on), with the Complete Sports pack. At £23 a month, it is the most expensive add-on so it might be worth going to the Sky TV website and checking if they have any bundles or packages with the add-on to see if it comes out cheaper.
Sky Cinema | £11 a month
With a new premiere every day and over 1000 other films to choose from, the Sky Cinema is great for movie fans. You'll be spoilt for choice with this add-on, with plenty of movies from Aladdin, to Bad Boys, Crazy Rich Asians, Venom and many more!
BT Sport | £20 a month
Thanks to BT's latest TV packages, you can now get the best of both worlds. So why not subscribe to this add-on for £20 a month and get access to all four BT Sport channels? You'd be getting access to exclusive Premier League games and every match of the UEFA Champions League!
Netflix | £6 a month
Ready to find your next binge-worthy TV series? Well with Sky's Netflix add-on you finally can. And just to give you a sneak peak, Netflix's current library includes Mindhunter, Queer Eye, RuPaul's Drag Race, The Witcher, Top Boy and many, many more!View Deal

A mere fiver a month grants access to over 4500 episodes on demand. There's more though as there are also 10 live channels. Don't worry about them hogging the TV though as you can also have up to 10 individual profiles on the Sky Kids app with shows tailored to the age of your little ones.

This is the very definition of all-singing all-dancing.
Sky TV + Broadband Superfast | 18 months | £29.95 one off set-up fee | 59Mb | £39 per month

What is Sky Q and do I need it?
Sky Q is a subscription that allows you to seamlessly stream and record in 4K , across multiple screens (depending if you purchase a 1TB or a 2TB Sky Q box). To access Sky Q you need a Sky Q 1TB or a Sky QTB box. If you need more information make sure you check out our Sky Q review.
All basic Sky TV packages come with a Sky Q subscription but this doesn't include HD - for an extra £5 per month you can get HD.
Now if you're deciding if you should pick between a Sky Q 1TB or a Sky Q 2TB box all we can tell you is that the 2TB box costs start from £50 (one-off) but they do come with a few benefits. These include being able to record six shows at once instead of three, while watching a seventh, you'd also get the fancier Sky Q Touch remote control, an extra tablet allowance, and you'll be able to enjoy select channels in Ultra HD.
And if you don't want it to be all or nothing there are also options to buy a 1TB Sky Q box and a mini box. Whichever you decide to get, we recommend visiting the Sky website to check out all the Sky Q boxes options and pick the ideal one for you.
What HD Channels do I get on Sky TV?
Sky's basic package gives you over 300 channels, including TV's familiar favorites such as BBC One, ITV, Channel 4, MTV, Sky Atlantic, Comedy Central and many more!
In terms of HD, with all packages you get at least the standard free to air HD channels. To be honest you also get a fair few of these with standard Freeview HD. If you sign up for Sky Sports, there's no longer an extra fee to be paid to get them in HD as the channels now show in High Definition by default.
And if you get the extra HD add-on for £5 a month you'd be getting 35+ all Sky channels in HD! Below, are all the channels that come in HD without the added £5 a month.
