If, like me, you've recently cancelled a TV and/or broadband service and are on the hunt for a new provider – perhaps you're moving house – then Sky's Black Friday deals, which run throughout all of November and are available right now, have arrived at an ideal time.
These are among the best Black Friday deals and cover all of Sky's products and services: so whether you're looking for Sky TV (via Q box), Sky Glass (integrated smart TV), Sky Stream (streaming box), Sky Broadband, Sky Mobile, or Sky Protect (insurance) – everything has an offer on at present.
Here I'm going to highlight the best Sky Black Friday deals only that I think will be the most appealing options for many shoppers this sales period. Keep in mind these expire at the end of 30 November 2023, so act now or before next month!
Sky TV deals
Sky Steam & Ultimate TV pack:
was £26/month, now £19 a month [for 18 months]
Save £7 a month for 18 months, netting you £126 of cash in your pocket over the year-and-a-half period. If you already have a TV and are just looking for the box, but no dish, then this is your idea solution. The Ultimate TV package includes Sky TV and Netflix basic, so loads of content at your fingertips. Just make sure you've got a good enough internet connection for it (Sky Broadband also available).
T3's review of Sky Stream pondered if it was "the end of Sky Q? [the company's top-tier package, which requires a satellite dish for content]" as it delivers Sky's services to your TV without the need for a dish. It's all through a broadband connection.
It's certainly an excellent option, although you'll likely want to add various 'add-on packs', such as 4K UHD, to get the best-of-best from this service. Unlike Sky Q you won't be able to record natively on the box either, which may affect your catch-up preferences. But that won't matter for most people.
Sky Glass deals
Sky Glass & Ultimate TV pack:
was £40/month, now £33 a month [for 18 months]
Save £7 a month for 18 months, netting you £126 of cash in your pocket over the year-and-a-half period. That's for the smallest 43-inch Sky Glass TV (£14/month over 48 months with the £19/month service subscription on top) with the Ultimate TV package including Sky TV and Netflix basic. The offer stands on the larger TVs, too, but you'll be paying more overall.
T3's review called Sky Glass "the smartest of all smart TVs" because that's what it is: a standalone telly complete with Sky services built in. There's no dish, though, as everything streams through a broadband connection – so if you can't have a dish installed then it's ideal.
It also means you needn't buy a separate TV, as the whole package is a subscription. It comes in three sizes to suit all manner of spaces too: 43-inch (what I have for the kitchen), 55-inch (the typical ideal living room set), and 65-inch (if bigger is better for your space). If you also have another TV then you can add a Sky Stream puck to obtain Sky TV services on that too.
Other Sky deals
There are other Sky deals, too, from Sky Mobile cutting its biggest data bundles by 50% per month (on any phone, whether you're iPhone 15 Pro, Pixel 8 Pro or Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra), to Sky Broadband offering speed upgrades at a discount to existing customers.
