Sky Movies to be added to BT TV channels 530-540 from 26/10/2013

BT and Sky have signed a multi-year contract which will see Sky Movies made available through BT TV.

BT will offer Sky Movies for a monthly subscription that customers can add to their existing BT TV package from 26th October 2013.

In accordance with YouView channel allocation rules, which harmonises the channel numbers used by BT and TalkTalk when both operators carry the same services, Sky Movies will be on BT TV from channel 530.  BT TV and TalkTalk YouView channel numbers >

According to a joint statement released by the companies today, the agreement means that BT will be able to offer its TV customers the option to bolt-on Sky Movies whether they are customers with the YouView box or the latest Vision + box. For Sky, the deal supports Sky’s growing wholesale content business.

BT TV customers will be able to enjoy the latest movies across 11 Sky Movies channels, in standard definition, both as streamed live channels and on-demand for those with BT Infinity fibre broadband. For customers with regular BT broadband Sky Movies is only available on-demand.

BT TV customers with YouView remain without access to Sky Sports or the "basic" Sky channels, which include Sky 1 and Sky Arts. These remain only available via TalkTalk's YouView service at the present time.
