Sky offers free movie downloads


Sky has announced two new download services for computer and mobiles. Sky by broadband will allow customers to download a selection of movies and access highlights of the weekend’s Barclays Premiership matches on their PC. Sky by mobile offers the latest news to your phone. Both services are available free to customers with two or more premium channels as part of their existing subscription.

More than 200 movies are available at launch, ranging from Hollywood blockbusters to classic and cult movies. The broadband service will also include over 1,000 Sky Sports video clips at any one time including highlights of every Barclays Premiership and UEFA Champions League match.

Sky by mobile offers access to Sky entertainment, sports, news and weather on the move. The mobile service is available across multiple networks on a range of handsets compatible with internet access via GPRS or 3G.

To register for Sky by broadband customers need a home PC with Microsoft Windows XP and a minimum 1MB broadband connection. Visit and follow the on-screen instructions.

  • Never mind all this junk… when can I pay to view premiership matches? I don’t want a Sky subscription, I have a life, I don’t have time to sit watching every match. I don’t even have time to watch all my teams matches.. give us the ability to access what we want rather than over charged subs for what we don’t!
