In April, Sky signed an exclusive deal with Sony Pictures and now Sky customers are about to see the fruits of that deal coming to their living rooms.
Today, Sky announced Sky Cinema, which is set to replace Sky Movies from July 8th, and promises customers 75% more new movie premieres than its predecessor, as well as new and improved HD and sound closer to what you would expect in the cinema; as long as your neighbours don’t mind of course!
Sky Cinema customers will have access to a new movie premiere every day – whether they choose to watch it live, on demand or on the go – at no extra cost. Plus HD will be offered as standard to all Sky Cinema customers on the Sky and Virgin Media platforms.
According to Sky, major films will be available on the new-look Sky Cinema “only eight months after cinema release, and can be watched exclusively on Sky Cinema for over a year before you can watch them on any other subscription service”.
From July, the following premieres are just a handful of what will be available on Sky Cinema: Spectre
, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
, Minions Movie
, Crimson Peak
