The "Ultimate On Demand" subscription pack will bring together some 400 United Kingdom and US Sky Box Sets with the full Netflix service - allowing viewers to access Sky Originals like Tin Star, HBO content like Game of Thrones, and Netflix series like The Crown and Stranger Things.
Customers with a Sky Q Entertainment subscription can thus expect to get Netflix's Standard plan (2 HD streams) and Sky Box Sets in HD as part of UOD, while anybody with their premium Sky Q Experience (multi-room viewing and Ultra HD) should get Netflix's Premium plan (4 Ultra HD / 4K streams).
It will allow customers of Sky, the owner of Sky News, full access to the Netflix app through their single Sky subscription, rather than having to pay Netflix separately.
Turn on the Sky Q system with Netflix on Sky Q enabled and, seamlessly, the entire content library from Netflix is integrated into the user interface's content selections.
The Netflix content flowed into Sky Q is profile specific, with profiles easily switched between in-system.
While voice search isn't yet working across Netflix titles, plenty of considerations have been made to make finding the Netflix content you want as easy as possible.

A few more quality-of-life features will be added to Sky before the end of this year and on into next.
We also said that it would "only get better", and after recently going hands-on with Sky and Netflix's latest venture, a Sky Q system with Netflix built in, it's pleasing to see that our prediction was bang on the money.
Recommendations for both Sky and Netflix shows will be displayed on Sky Q's homepage and content from both will be available to customers via Sky Q's search function. It'll also pair up with the same Kids profiles established in Sky's mobile app, syncing up any personalised options across the ecosystem. Sky Go and Sky Q will remain separate.
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 hard all by itself. While the long wait for HDR frustrates, it's great to see Sky's premium package continue to shine.
