11 Sky Movie Channels on October 26th

http://www.broadbandtvnews.com/2013/10/14/bt-reaches-sky-movies-carriage-agreement/

I had already read about this as it had been leaked. Pricing in the leak not the article above is £16/month provided you already have another product.

While welcome I am puzzled. I can get them all for £8.99 via the Now TV App or if I use a Roku box or a £9.99 Now TV box I can get On Demand and streaming channels at £8.99.

Unless the leaked pricing is wrong of course

Re: 11 Sky Movie Channels on October 26th

BT and Sky have signed a multi-year contract which will see Sky Movies made available through BT TV. 

BT will offer Sky Movies for a monthly subscription that customers can add to their existing BT TV package from October 26. 

The agreement means that BT will be able to offer its TV customers the option to bolt-on Sky Movies whether they are customers with the YouView box or the latest Vision + box. For Sky, the deal supports Sky’s growing wholesale content business. 

BT TV customers will be able to enjoy the latest movies across 11 Sky Movies channels, in standard definition, both as streamed live channels and on-demand for those with BT Infinity fibre broadband. For customers with regular BT broadband Sky Movies is only available on-demand.

Re: 11 Sky Movie Channels on October 26th

Pricing will be interesting .... a glance at Sky website suggests that £16 is their standard monthly price for the movie channels , Virgin media with presumably a wholesale deal hasthem for  £19.50 and Now Tv has a standard price (that surely none actually pays) of £15.

Now TV dropped the £15 price tag quite some time ago - it is now £8.99 (no longer an offer)

No mention of HD that I've seen, but without 5.1 sound I suppose that doesn't matter [Does it BT???]

The press release states standard definition. No mention of recording either, presumably that will be available a few weeks after the launch of BT Sport

SD only? What's the point?

I agree, that's what I said when they dumped NowTV on the YV box. When I want to watch a film I want full HD, and lots of multichannel sound.

Re: 11 Sky Movie Channels on October 26th

It is one of those odd things that you need fibre to stream standard definition tv channels? Very Unusual - the £16 may be a bit much when you consider the cost of getting the current selection of channels extra - I want to see more diverse content, a different selection of channels and HD. Like the selection that TalkTalk have.
