Fans of Netflix will be able to access the online streaming service via a Sky TV subscription later this year.

Telecoms giant Sky has announced that it will bundle the full Netflix service into a brand-new Sky TV entertainment pack in a partnership that it says is the “first of its kind”.  

This means customers will get just the one bill for the two services.

Netflix will also be available as a standalone app on Sky’s NOW TV devices, including on the recently launched NOW TV Smart Stick. NOW TV is Sky’s own streaming service.

However, prices for the new bundle have yet to be announced, with Sky only saying they’ll be confirmed nearer to launch.

Netflix’s basic package currently costs £5.99 a month, rising to £7.99 a month for its standard package and to £9.99 a month for its premium offering.

Only last week Sky announced it is hiking broadband, TV and home phone costs from 1 April.

Jeremy Darroch, group chief executive at Sky, comments: “By placing Sky and Netflix content side by side, along with programmes from the likes of HBO, Showtime, Fox and Disney, we are making the entertainment experience even easier and simpler for our customers.”
