Sky TV customers can now get an ongoing Entertainment & Sport pass for Discovery+ at no extra cost. This usually costs £6.99 per month, so you can save over £80 per year with this completely free addition.
Users already had access to a free 12-month Entertainment Pass of Discovery+. However, this Entertainment & Sport pass has no time limit, and the addition of sports programming allows viewers to tune into huge events for free. This includes the 2023 Australian Open, which kicks off today.
Discovery+ also allows customers to watch the Roland-Garros tennis, the Tour de France and every moment of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games – the BBC sometimes only shows highlights of certain events.
On the entertainment side, Discovery+ also includes series such as Vardy vs Rooney: The Wagatha Trial, 90 Day Fiancé, Beauty and the Geek and Richard Hammond’s Workshop. Customers can find the Discovery+ app on the homepage or by using the voice remote with the phrase ‘Get Discovery Plus’.
The deal is available to Sky Q, Sky Glass and Sky Stream customers with a Sky TV package and comes on top of the free Paramount+ subscription (which includes Top Gun: Maverick), and Netflix Basic (home to Knives Out sequel, Glass Onion). Sky customers who are already signed up for the free Entertainment Pass will automatically be upgraded.
If you’re on the flexible streaming service Now, then this deal does not apply. It also isn’t available to customers on the TV Essentials pack.
“We know value is incredibly important right now, so we’re pleased to bring discovery+ to our Sky TV customers at no extra cost, saving £6.99 a month. Offering even more incredible entertainment and sport to enjoy this year for less,” said Elizabeth Wynn, Managing Director of Sky TV.
If you’re not already, you can sign up to a Sky package with the Entertainment & Sport pass from Discovery+ from £24.99 per month – Sky Stream is the first Sky product which allows customers to sign up on a monthly rolling contract.
Sky is also the home to next big video game adaptation, The Last of Us.
