What Is Sky Signature?

Written by, Bojana Atanasovska

Updated May, 5, 2022

With over 23 million subscribers, Sky is the most popular pay-TV service in the UK. 

One of its most popular choices nowadays is the Sky Signature package. 

But, what is Sky Signature, how does it differ from its previous entertainment package offered, and what exactly does it offer?

Let’s dive in.

What Is Sky Signature?

Sky Signature is the rebranded version of Sky’s Entertainment package. It combines the older Sky Entertainment plan with the Sky Box Sets package, which was available as a separate add-on for customers subscribed to Sky Entertainment. 

Did you know? Sky TV is the most viewed TV advertiser by Brits with more than 20 billion broadcast views!

With the Sky Signature package, subscribers get access to more than 300 channels on Sky Q (including over 150 channels that you can’t find on Freeview), as well as on-demand 500 Box Sets, and more than 60 dedicated TV channels.

So, how much is Sky Signature?

The package starts from £26 a month for an 18-month contract, with a one-off TV installation fee of £20. 

If you want to add your Netflix subscription to the package or any other service that’s not available in the plan, it will cost you extra. Some of the options include Sky’s Ultimate TV add-on (which comes with Netflix), Sky Sports, Multiscreen, Sky Cinema, BT Sport, Ultra HD + HD, Sky Kids, and Disney+.

On the plus side, you can cancel the add-ons any time during the 31-day rolling contract period.

Sky Offers For New Customers

One of the reasons why Sky is one of the most popular TV services in the UK is because it regularly introduces new offers, plans, and channels for its subscribers.

If you’re not a Sky subscriber and are looking for good Sky Signature deals, you can find them on Sky’s official website. If you want to see Sky Signature deals for existing customers, you can find deals on the homepage of your Sky account.
