Discount ends 11.59am today

The countdown clock is ticking — literally — on some of the best Sky Stream dealswe've ever seen. The latest raft of Sky TV savings will end at 11.59am today (Thursday July 11), so there's just minutes left to save £576.

That ludicrous £576 discount is available on an all-singing, all-dancing Sky Stream bundle with Sky Entertainment, a fully-fledged Netflix subscription, Sky Sports, Sky Cinema, and Sky Kids. Everything is upgraded to 4K Ultra HD picture quality with support for Dolby Atmos sound too.

Usually £73, this limited-time Sky TV deal plunges that monthly cost down to just £49 — saving £24 every month, totalling £576 over the two-year contract. There's no upfront fee or delivery cost, either.

Sky Stream is becoming one of the most popular ways to watch Sky TV — with 90% of new customers who join opting for broadband-powered kit. Ditching the satellite dish has become so popular that Sky has started to wind down its satellite dish operations and cull channels from its oldest Sky+ boxes.

Virgin Media is offering a free 43-inch 4K UHD television free with its TV and broadband bundles this week, making it the perfect time to supercharge your telly viewing.

The latest Sky TV sale ends soon... and the company has started the countdown across its online store


The basic Sky Entertainment package — included with all of the above deals — arrives with over 500 boxsets, including exclusives like House of the Dragon, The White Lotus, Euphoria, Mare of Easttown, Game of Thrones, True Detective, and Succession from HBO, Sky Originals like Rob and Romesh Vs..., Chernobyl, and Brassic.

You'll also enjoy a Netflix Standard with Ads subscription included that you watch on your Sky Stream box and any other devices with a Netflix app, so you can stream series like Stranger Things, Bridgerton, and Squid Game.

Other popular streamers, like Prime Video, Disney+, and Apple TV+, and catch-up services, including BBC iPlayer, ITVX, and Channel 4, are all supported on Sky Stream out-of-the-box.

The EntertainmentOS software will intelligently suggest new shows, documentaries, and films based on your viewing habits from all of these services.

Sky offers over 100 linear channels that you won't find on Freeview — or its new successor, Freely.

When you add upcoming shows to your Playlist, the equivalent to your Recordings on the older Sky Q system, Sky Stream will automatically scour on-demand catalogues from all of your streamers to find previously aired episodes in case you want to catch up. For example, if you add an episode of Grey's Anatomy on Sky Witness and you've signed into Disney+ on the set-top box — you'll find every episode ready to binge-watch in the menu.

Sky Cinema offers access to some of the latest films from Hollywood and British studios, as well as original productions commissioned by Sky TV. Not only that, but it also comes with a subscription to Paramount+ to watch on the Sky Stream box, iPhone, Android phones, or a tablet. Each month, you'll also receive two free cinema tickets to watch a movie of your choice on the silver screen at your local VUE.

Sky Sports boasts 9 dedicated sports channels, with over 500 live football games including some of the biggest Premier League fixtures, every England home Cricket Test, One Day International and T20, all four days of the Golf majors, as well as the Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup, and exclusive live coverage of the US Open.

From next month, your Sky Sports subscription will supercharged with the arrival of the all-new Sky Sports+ service as a free upgrade for all viewers.

Sky Stream has more in common with a Fire TV, Roku, or Apple TV set-top box than a traditional satellite box from the broadcaster. As the name suggests, everything is beamed over a Wi-Fi connection.

Since there's no satellite dish, there's no need to organise an engineer appointment. Getting connected with Sky Stream should be much speedier than traditional Sky boxes like Sky+ and Sky Q as there's no need to wait for a free slot with the engineers. Instead, the moment Sky Stream drops through your letterbox, simply plug in the power and HDMI cables and follow the on-screen instructions. And that's it.

Sky Entertainment is the standard bundle of live channels and on-demand content included with every Sky Stream order, it offers access to 100 channels not available on Freeview, 500 on-demand boxsets to binge-watch, and a Netflix subscription


Live television and on-demand content is beamed over broadband, so you can position Sky Stream anywhere in home with no need to run an unsightly aerial or satellite cable to the set-top box.

The minimum requirement for Sky Stream is 25Mbps. The average broadband speed nationwide, as measured by Ofcom, sits at 69Mbps, so most people should have enough bandwidth to watch Sky Stream in HD.

But beware, with some of the above deals including Ultra HD at no cost, the minimum speed requirement for 4K resolution — which has 4x the pixels of 1080p High Definition — increases to 30Mbps.

You'll still be able to save on Sky Stream with the Sky Entertainment bundle after the 11.59pm deadline tomorrow. Usually £28, this entry-level package has dropped to £22 per month — saving £96.
