Continuing our look at the channels currently available in each of the Sky Entertainment Packs, today we’re looking at what you get in the Music Pack. In case you’re new to Sky, when you subscribe to Sky TV you can pick one of the 6 packs as a basic package (for example if you take the Sky+ Starter package at £19.50 a month that will include one Entertainment Pack).
