11 Sky Movies channels will be available as a bolt-on for BT TV subscribers from October 26

Sky offers its satellite TV subscribers a huge range of films through Sky Movies in the UK, but soon that content will be available on rival service BT TV too.

The two firms confirmed a multi-year contract today which will see Sky Movies offered as a bolt-on for BT TV subscribers with a YouView or Vision+ set-top box from October 26 onwards.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

The package will include 11 Sky Movies channels:

Sky Movies Premiere, Sky Movies Showcase, Sky Movies Greats, Sky Movies Disney, Sky Movies Family, Sky Movies Action & Adventure, Sky Movies Comedy, Sky Movies Crime & Thriller, Sky Movies Drama & Romance, Sky Movies Sci Fi & Horror and Sky Movies Select.

BT is yet to disclose the price of the Sky Movies add-on, but it highlights the company’s commitment to offering a range of content that can at least rival – if not surpass just yet – Sky’s rather formidable offerings.

It’s worth noting that Virgin, the other major player in the UK, also offers its subscribers up to 11 Sky Movies channels through a number of bolt-on packages starting at £26 per month.
