null

With Game of Thrones season 8 and The Walking Dead season 9 not far off, you’re going to need the best Sky TV deals, packages, and special offers to make sure you’re not only getting the best value for money, but a bargain that would make even a White Walker melt with envy.

It should go without saying that Sky’s selection of sports, TV, and movies can be a little bewildering. Thankfully, we’ve made things nice and simple; scrolling down the page will give you access to the best Sky TV deals about, as well as the larger bundles and optional add-ons, should you want to add a little more sparkle to your Sky package.

What new Sky TV customers need to know

Remember the days of Sky offering several packages and you needing a degree in marketing just to figure out what’s the best Sky TV deal for you? That’s no longer the case. In fact, it’s never been easier. The standard package comes in at a flat fee of £20 a month. From there, you can add on the likes of Sky Sports, Sky Box Sets and Sky Cinema. Don’t know which one to plump for? Don’t worry! We’ve gone through all of the specific add-ons below, so you know exactly what to do when they get offered to you on the Sky checkout page.

Are there any Sky Q deals for new customers?

Sky Q, the device needed to watch Sky TV across multiple rooms and devices, as included in all the deals on this page for new customers. So, should you want to catch up on your Game of Thrones in one room while the kids watch Sky Sports in the other – you can! From the offers below, there are two Sky Q deals to choose from.

The default option is the 1TB Sky Q box, which includes a £20 setup fee. Should you want to go for the 2TB Sky Q box, you’ll be met with an eye-watering £199 setup fee. It’s only a one-off cost, and doesn’t affect the monthly price, but there is away around it should you want double the storage.

If you add Sky Q Multiscreen to your bundle (an extra £12 a month), you can get the 2TB Sky Q for a reduced setup cost of £65 which, is a saving of £134. Not too shabby.

Do I need a 2TB Sky Q box?

Not only does a 2TB Sky Q box come with double the storage of the standard version – that’s 1000 hours of standard def TV all ready and waiting to be stored – there are a few extra cherries on top of the cake for you to consider. With so many shows that need bingeing, you’re bound to want to record several at the same with. With the 2TB box you can record six shows at once instead of only three. It also comes with a Sky Q Touch remote and, as long as you have Sky Multiscreen at an extra £12 a month, you get access to certain channels in Ultra HD. Pairing that off with one of the best 4K TVs for gaming wouldn’t be the worst decision in the world.

Sky Sports Complete Pack | £18 per month (18-month contract)

Sky Sports Complete Pack | £27.50 a month (no contract), or one channel for £18 or two for £22 per month

You can also choose one of the nine channels listed in the box above for £18 a month; two channels for £22 and the whole lot for £27.50 a month. You’ll have to give 31 days’ notice should you want to cancel, but it’s the best option should you want a test run for the real thing, or only fancy checking out a handful of sports.View Deal

Sky Q Multiscreen | £20 for first extra TV, £99 per additional TV | £12 a month

If you want Sky around the house, you’re going to want to cough up for Sky Q Multiscreen. While the £12 a month plus one-off £20 fee for an extra TV isn’t too bad in the grand scheme of things, every additional TV will cost £99, thanks to you needing another Sky Q Mini box. After those setup fees are out of the way, though, you’re free to enjoy Sky Q Multiscreen for £12 a month. Perfect for when you’re desperate to see how Rick leaves in The Walking Dead season 9 but the other half is watching a Sky Box set in the other room.View Deal

Sky Fibre Broadband | 18 months | £9.95-£59.95 one-off setup fee | £20-£35 a month
