Netflix comes to Sky Q boxes in November

This includes both Sky Box Sets (normally £5 per month) and Netflix Standard (normally £7.99 per month), so you're saving money, sort of.

It's worth noting that Netflix integration is not available on the older Sky+ box.

Read our Sky Q review if you're not sure about making the jump. That is, barring one significant point - while HDR will remain available through Netflix on other platforms when purchased with the Ultimate On Demand package, you won't be able to watch the streaming giant's High Dynamic Range content through the Sky box.

Netflix on Sky: when will I be able to get it?

Commenting on today's news, technology, media and telco analyst Paolo Pescatore said the Netflix deal "further increases Sky's own value as a one stop shop provider".

Selecting a Netflix show from a content rail, which range from genres to more specific recommendations based on a user's tastes, and it immediately takes you in to the show/movie page where you can then launch the content, which streams directly as in the dedicated Netflix app.

Watching Netflix shows won't work exactly like watching shows on Sky's catch-up service, however, which downloads content before allowing you to play it.
