Sky & Netflix Reach New Multiyear Agreement


Sky and Netflix have signed a new multiyear agreement in the U.K., strengthening their partnership built over the last two years.

Following the deal, Sky customers will soon have the option to take up Netflix’s Basic Plan on Sky Q. With one service, users are able to access Sky original productions like the award-winning Chernobyl, new shows like The Third Day and returning series such as Save Me Too, alongside Netflix’s original dramas, films and documentaries, among them The Witcher, The Irishman and a new season of Sex Education.

The agreement is the latest in a series of content partnerships for Sky, with the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5 and Warner Media all entering into new pacts.

Stephen van Rooyen, CEO of Sky UK and Ireland, said: “This is a great start to what is set to be another strong year for Sky. Our customers love Netflix content and our partnership continues to go from strength to strength, we plan to launch new channels and genres, start building our new studio, Sky Studios Elstree, and we’ll have great new and returning Sky originals too. This year our customers will have access to even more great content—all in one place.”
