Sky now offering Buy & Keep movies to everyone

15 April 2015

sky Sky have gone and expanded their Buy & Keep service, offering it the download/delivery service to non-Sky subscribers. Last year, Sky's TV subscribers got the service which lets you download a digital copy of a film while you wait for the physical DVD to be delivered, but now, anyone can do it.

If you think this sounds better than just downloading stuff or going down the shops, then from today, you can go to the Sky Store website and sort yourself out.

Seeing as they're opening it up to everyone, the service is going to be available on a load of different mobile platforms and internet-connected set-top boxes. If this sort of thing fills you with dread, do remember, you can just watch Freeview and tut about stuff.

Nicola Bamford, Director of the Sky Store says: "People want the simplest and most convenient way to buy and watch the movies they love, which is why it’s great news that from today Buy & Keep will be available to everyone and across multiple devices."

Some bigger, newer films will cost you £13.99, while older flicks are going for £7.99 each. If you use torrents, try and keep your laughing down because you're upsetting the consumers.

You'll also be able to use the Follow Me function, which lets you pause a movie and resuming watching it on a different one.

    at those prices i will stay with buying full quality blu-ray discs, not overly compressed overpriced digital/streaming copys that you never really own.

    Why anyone would pay £14 for a film is beyond me.

    use your heads will ya. dvds still control over 80% of the physical media market, ie not alot of people give a shit about blu-ray for sky to see it as a priority. And it just so happens more than half a million people have used sky's b&k service last year which has contributed a huge amount of revenue for sky store recently.

    @ t I do use my head hence why i don't pay more for an inferior service, even if we believe your manufactured statistics (which i don't for a second), who cares what others supposedly do as im not an intellectually challenged sheeple, and I could not give a shit what such idiots do.

    hey dingus you idiot, "87% of the physical movie sales are in DVD..." actual stats from someone who's job is to observe these kinds of trends. surely a brain-dead pleb such as yourself can look that up easily on google. Perhaps a dumbass like you would realise that getting a free dvd along with a digital purchase is not really an inferior service considering that other services just offer u just a digital title at nearly exactly the same prices. Tell me, what smart device do you own that's not an apple, samsung product and haven't been released in the past 2years. Anything you paid for that also has been bought by millions of other people technically makes YOU an intellectually challenged sheeple.
