Compare Sky Movies Packages

Sky Movies

Sky Movies is the number one TV movies service in the UK and is available from Sky or from Virgin Media. In order to compare Sky Sports packages we’ll look at the cheapest package and the most comprehensive package a new customer can get from each of the 2 providers, but first here is a snapshot of the differences. The best package for you depends on a number of factors including availability in your area, length of contract you’re willing to take and whether you are able to install a dish on your property.

Sky TV

  • £16 a month for complete Sky Movies
  • Sky Movies 1 or 2 £8 a month
  • Triple bundles from £20 a month

Virgin Media

  • £21.50 a month for complete Sky Movies
  • Sky Movies 1 or 2 £14.50 a month
  • Triple bundles from £20.00 a month

Unlike when we compare Sky Sports packages, where availability of channels varies from provider to provider, comparing Sky Movies deals is easier because the same content is available on Sky and Virgin Media (with the small exception of Sky Movies Classics in HD), so the differences lie in the TV bundles themselves.
