Stay with us, as we've gone into detail about each of the available add-ons below.
SKY Q DEALS
Do I need a 2TB Sky Q box?
As well as double the storage (up to 1,000 hours in standard definition) of the standard Sky Q box, the 2TB Sky Q deal comes with a few extra benefits, including being able to record six shows at once rather than three, while watching a seventh. You also get the fancier Sky Q Touch remote control, an extra tablet allowance, PLUS you can enjoy selected channels in Ultra HD. Perfect if you've just bought a cheap 4K TV.
If you're signing up as a new customer, all Sky TV packages include a Sky Q box by default. When choosing your Sky TV package from the offers below, you'll see two Sky Q deals to choose from.
The default Sky Q box is 1TB, and has a one-off £20 set-up cost. There's also a 2TB Sky Q box, but the set-up is £199. However, the monthly cost is the same for both, so it's just the one-off cost to consider. Also, the 2TB Sky Q box can be purchased for £65 instead, but only if you add Sky Q Multiscreen to your bundle at £12 a month.

SKY TV ADD-ONS
Sky TV deal add-ons are much easier to understand now that they can be purchased individually. You can build your own bundle below, making sure you're not paying for anything you won't watch, and it'll save you money. Scroll for extra details about each add-on to help you decide if you truly need them.
Sky TV in HD | £5 a month
One of the most essential add-ons in our eyes, this HD extra means you'll truly appreciate your TV's quality. Sometimes, Standard Definition (SD) just isn't enough as it can appear extremely blurry on modern HD or 4K TVs. Bringing not just brighter colour to the picture, for just an extra fiver, you can also enjoy an extra five times the detail on channels such as Dave HD and GOLD HD. Note: the Sports channels are an further £6 a month.
Sky Cinema | £11 a month
Slightly more expensive than other add-ons, but for good reason, Sky's selection of recent movies gets a new addition every day, and they're all in HD. With over 1,000 films to choose from, if you find yourself choosing a film over a TV programme when browsing what to watch, forget the individual HD add-on and just get this. Although it's more expensive than Netflix and Amazon Prime, we think it's worth it.
Sky Kids | £5 a month
Parents, rejoice! The small price of £5 a month not only keeps the kids quiet with over 5,000 episodes of TV programmes, but also lets them watch a further 11 channels of kid's live TV. This way, you won't be scrolling for hours trying to find 'that dinosaur programme', and it can be screened on tablets via the app. Let Saturday night Strictly watching re-commence.
Sky Sports Complete Pack in HD | £23 a month (18 month contract) or £30 a month (no contract)
Ready for all the sports? If you know you'll be glued to the action throughout the year, you can get all seven Sky Sports channels for just £23 a month. Think Sky Sports Premier League, Sky Sports Football, Sky Sports F1, Sky Sports Cricket, Sky Sports Golf, Sky Sports Action, Sky Sports Arena and Sky Sports Main Event (for the world's biggest sporting events). Note: HD is extra.
If you'll only be using one Sky Sports channel, you might be better off taking a glance below at the rolling contract options starting from £18 a month.
Sky Sports | From £18 per month
There's no need to sign up for 18 months of Sky Sports if you won't be using it. Behold: the 30-day rolling contract, which means you'll only pay for what you want to watch. Ideal for those who only watch during season-specific times of the year, and it's cheaper in the long run.
One channel is priced at £18 a month, two £22 and three £26. A sensible option to ease yourself into the Sky Sports packages, just in case you don't enjoy them. Note: you have to give 31 days' notice if you want to cancel.View Deal
Ultimate On Demand | £12 a month
Get access to all of the best TV in one place with the Ultimate On Demand package from Sky. For just £12 a month, you'll be able to access over 500 Sky boxsets and the whole of Netflix, all in stunning HD. View Deal
Sky Q Experience | £20 for first extra TV, £99 per additional TV | £13 a month
For those who have several screens in their house and want to watch Sky TV channels from them all, sign up for Sky Q Multiscreen for an extra £13 a month. There's a £20 one-off fee for adding a Sky Q mini box to one other room, and any additional Sky Q mini boxes will have a one-off cost of £99. However, although costly, if you do decide to opt in for multiscreen, it'll lower the cost of the 2TB Sky Q box from £199 to £65, and all of your channels will be in Ultra HD.

Sky Black Friday deals
Waiting for Black Friday to snatch up the best Sky TV deals? Or waiting for a Sky broadband deal? We think it's a smart move – if last year's Sky deals are anything to go off, this year should be mega. Last Black Friday Sky was offering customers a FREE 43 inch TV when subscribing to selected packages. Even better? Sky also sold a Black Friday Bundle worth £55 per month – this included Sky Entertainment, Sky Cinema, Sky Q Experience and their Ultimate On Demand package (as well as the free TV, obvs). Yep, Sky Black Friday deals were hard to compete with last year.
This year? We can only hope for bigger and better deals. If that's possible. Keep checking back to this page for updates on more Sky Black Friday plans, otherwise head to our Black Friday page for deals and news updates.
