Sky has cut the price of Sky Movies down to £8.50/month for the first six months of a new Sky TV contract.
The package, which gives you access to live and on demand content from 11 Sky Movies channels, normally costs £17/month in addition to a mandatory bundle of Sky channels. For the first six months of a 12 month contract, customers will be able to take Sky Movies at half the usual price.
The deal has been launched in time for the Christmas season, where Sky’s exclusive deals with big studios will see movies like Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, Big Hero 6, Exodus: Gods and Kings and Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron coming to Sky subscriber’s screens over the holidays.

If you want to be able to get Sky Movies in HD, you’ll need to take out the more expensive Family Bundle (£36/month) along with the additional HD Pack (£5.25/month) to get the movies channels as well as Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, Sky Living and more in high definition.
As ‘tis the season for promotions, Sky’s also seen fit to slash the costs of both the Original and Family Bundles down to £10/month and £26/month respectively, for six months.
And as if that wasn’t enough, this new deal follows in the wake of another Sky Movies offer, which sees customers who sign up for the movies package able to get free broadband for a year.
Sky’s unlimited ADSL service (up to 17Mbps, no traffic shaping) which is normally £5/month, is currently available for free for 12 months to customers taking out Sky Movies. This offer is open to folks who are already Sky Movies subscribers as well as new customers.
While the broadband element is free, you’ll still have to pay £17.40/month for line rental. If up to 17Mbps isn’t enough for you, you might be happy to learn that for a limited time you can also get Sky Fibre Unlimited for just £10/month – check out our feature here for more details on that.
