Sky has decided to make self-isolation that little bit easier by making new movies available for home viewing on the same day as the cinema release date.
As there is a coronavirus pandemic meaning many are going into self-isolation, Sky has taken it upon themselves to make it that less frustrating by ensuring movie buffs are kept entertained.
Sky has now partnered up with NBCUniversal to make a range of movies available by allowing you to rent them on Sky Store, on the very same day as they premiere globally.
To keep the kids quiet as schools have closed, the first kids’ film that will become available is DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls World Tour on April 6, which is the sequel to the Trolls blockbuster.
However, before that The Hunt, The Invisible Man and Emma will all become available to watch on on-demand on Sky Store today, following their recent release at UK cinemas.
EVP and CEO of Sky Uk and Europe, Stephan Van Rooyen, stated: “We’re working hard at Sky to make sure we continue to look after our customers.
“We’re also introducing some things to help make life a little easier for anyone at home trying to work, stay connected to loved ones, or keep the family entertained.”
This announcement from Sky comes after Boris Johnson urged the British public to work from home if possible and to avoid all pubs, clubs, restaurants and mass gatherings, as cases of COVID-19 are continuing to increase across the UK.
As people are more likely to be spending time at home over the following weeks, Sky thought they would do their bit to make everyone’s’ television experience a little more engaging, as well as making sure that the broadband, talk and mobile services are all working effectively too.
One of the perks of Sky’s Go Extra is that it will be available to all customers for free so that jampacked houses will have access to Sky TV on three screens at the exact same time.
You can call UK landlines at any time of the day which will also be free for existing Sky Talk customers from the weekend until the end of April.
In the upcoming weeks, YouTube Kids and Disney+ will also be coming to Sky Q, which will ensure families are given much more entertainment choices during self-isolation.
