Sky Entertainment

Sky Entertainment is one of the two TV packages available from Sky – new Sky TV customers can either take Entertainment or Entertainment Extra to form the basis of the TV service and then add on Sky Sports, Sky Movies or other extras. Sky Entertainment is made up of the channels from the old Variety Pack combined with the Style and Culture Pack, including Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, Universal and Comedy Central – full details below. Entertainment Extra is the new name for all six Sky Entertainment Packs together.

Sky Entertainment can be taken either on its own or as part of a bundle with Sky Talk and line rental or with Sky Talk, line rental and Broadband together as a triple bundle. If you opt for the TV only package you then have a choice of Sky+ or Sky+HD – if you have an HD TV you can get the best selection of HD channels in the UK (over 50 channels) by adding the HD Pack for an extra £10.25 a month. Whether you take HD or stick with Sky+ you still have the ability to pause, rewind and record programmes using the Sky+ box.

If you decide to take Entertainment as part of a triple bundle (usually the best value way) you can choose between Sky Talk Freetime with included evening and weekend calls and Sky Talk Anytime with included anytime calls (you need to pay Sky line rental with both of these). Then for broadband you have a choice of Broadband Everyday Lite and Broadband Unlimited - the former with a 20GB usage limit and the latter unlimited use. The benefit of Broadband Unlimited when it comes to a TV package is that Sky Anytime+, giving you access to Sky's huge library of on-demand TV and film, counts towards your broadband allowance, so the unlimited usage option is definitely recommended.
