Not only is it a little daunting when you open a streaming service or TV/Movie subscription and have to choose between everything they have to offer, but choosing between the streaming services and/or the TV/Movie subscriptions can be difficult all by itself.

To make it a little easier, Sky and Netflix are joining forces for a new subscription package that will allow viewers to easily switch and choose between the Sky exclusives (i.e. Game Of Thrones, Patrick Melrose, or Billions) as well as the Netflix-only series (like House Of Cards, Queer Eye, or The Crown).

Ultimate On Demand will be available for €16 a month for all new and existing customers alongside their Sky Q subscription, and with a 31-day rolling contract available.

Existing Sky Q customers with Netflix will be able to easily move their account to the new pack or sign in to the Netflix app on Sky Q using their existing Netflix account details.

Additionally, customers with an existing Netflix subscription that migrate their existing Netflix account to their new UOD account will keep their existing Netflix profiles and recommendations and continue to be able to watch Netflix on all their usual Netflix-supported devices.

Stephen van Rooyen, Chief Executive Officer for Sky UK and Ireland, said: "We want Sky Q to be the number one destination for TV fans. Partnering with Netflix means we will have all the best TV in one great value pack, making it even easier for you to watch all of your favourite shows."

Chris Whiteley, Director of Business Development for Netflix in the UK and Ireland, said: "Innovation is at the core of Netflix. We are delighted to partner with Sky to offer fans a new and exciting way to access the best of entertainment from around the world."
