More feel-good moments for an extra boost this Winter from Sky VIP

Wednesday 27 January 2021
Sky today launches a collection of freebies to keep customers entertained, fit and to help with home-schooling during lockdown.

As the nation continues to spend more time at home, Sky has unveiled a range of perks to give Sky VIP customers a boost, including free Sky Original films and free access to apps to keep your mind and body active.

Over the next month, all Sky customers will be able to benefit from these perks, so long as they’re enrolled in the free VIP scheme.

Lyssa McGowan, Chief Consumer Officer, Sky UK and Europe said: Whether it’s working from home, trying to home-school or looking for ways to stay entertained, we know life is challenging right now. That’s why Sky is giving our customers a little lift with a range of perks designed to help make things a little better, like free movies and access to educational and fitness apps.

Offering customers more content and more experiences, the freebies include:

  • Normally shown on Sky Cinema, all Sky TV customers can enjoy special screenings of Sky Original films on Sky One for the next month, including Final Score (1 February at 9pm), Monster Family (8 February at 6pm) and Four Kids and IT (15 February at 6pm). These are repeated on weekends
  • At-home workouts from the comfort of your living room with fitness app, Fiit, free to Sky Q customers for 30 days
  • While schools remain closed, help is at hand with a world of carefully curated educational videos, for children aged 1-11, via the Highbrow app with free, unlimited access on Sky Q until the 31 March
  • Access to the discovery+ streaming service, Discovery’s new home of on-demand content, for 12 months at no extra cost for Sky Q customers
  • Aardman Morph model making workshops and a magical Harry Potter themed quiz to spark creativity and imaginations over the half-term holiday. Take part via the My Sky app

    Sky VIP is free for all customers to join and can be found in the My Sky app. New Sky customers are auto enrolled, so they don’t need to do anything.

    All apps can be found in the apps page on Sky Q or by simply saying “show me apps” into your Sky Q voice remote to easily discover more.

Our streaming service, NOW TV, brings viewers all the enjoyment of Sky with the flexibility of a contract-free service.

    Building on the success of Sky Originals like Chernobyl, I Hate Suzie and Brassic, we are doubling our investment in original content by 2024 through Sky Studios. Sky News provides impartial and trustworthy journalism for free, while Sky Arts, the UK’s only dedicated free-to-air arts channel, makes the arts accessible for everyone. Our new TV and movie studio, Sky Studios Elstree, is expected to create over 2,000 new jobs and generate an additional £3 billion of production investment in the UK over the first five years alone.

    We believe that we can be a force for good in the communities in which we operate. We’re committed to being Europe’s first net zero carbon entertainment company by 2030. We take pride in our approach to diversity and inclusion: we’ve been recognised by The Times and Stonewall for our commitment to diversity and we’ve put in place a new programme to invest £30million across our markets over the next three years to tackle racial injustice.
