The best Sky TV deals have just got a whole lot more interesting with the arrival of Sky Glass. Sky Glass will sit alongside the more standard, satellite dish-based Sky Q for the time being. That extra choice should allow customers a better shot at finding the right Sky TV deals to fit their needs.

Sky TV is the best entertainment offering around right now, but it's not cheap. Thankfully there are some ever-inventive Sky TV deals and Sky Q offers, with broadband bundled in, and channels added on that can help. With Sky Sport a solid UHD offer and bolt-ons like Sky Multiscreen too, it's a very good moment to upgrade or even switch.

Sky combines top-flight sports, the best drama and comedy from the UK and US, and the biggest films before they reach other services, and much of it in 4K too. And now it offers Netflix and Disney Plus in 4K HDR, giving you a host of original content and an exhaustive library to binge your way through.

Here we'll cover all the options, as well as tell you all about Sky Glass deals, how to get it and what it offers. So, here are the best Sky TV deals, bundles and packages and how to get them. Happy viewing!

To get Sky Q, you'll need a Sky Q Box. It stores up to 500 hours of standard definition TV, lets you record six channels while watching a seventh and is able to show HD and 4K UHD content.

You'll also need a satellite dish in order to watch Sky, though we're promised that Sky will soon be available over broadband.

What is Sky Glass?

Sky Glass is Sky's new dishless Sky service which, in its current guise, is only available with the purchase of Sky's new TV offering to go with it. It's only available to priority Sky customers for the time being. Register your interest in Sky Glass (opens in new tab) to find out when you can get hooked up.

There are three sizes of Sky Glass TV to choose and Sky subscription deals to pick too. You pay a different amount up front according to the size you've gone for and then the rest is paid either over a 24-month or 48-month contract. Find out more information and look at the Sky Glass price.

Sky Glass, Sky TV, Netflix & Broadband from £56 a month (opens in new tab)
This bumper bundle includes the loan of a 43-inch Sky Glass streaming TV with Dolby Atmos speakers, the excellent Sky TV package, a Netflix subscription and Sky Superfast broadband – all for £56 a month (18 month contract).

Can you still get Sky+?

No. While Sky still supports its Sky+ customers, the only option for new customers is Sky Q.

How much do the Sky Q boxes cost?

The standard Sky Q package allows you to watch content at up to HD resolution and comes with the 1TB box. There's a one-off installation fee of £20 and then it's £26 per month for the basic TV package which includes Netflix, Sky Atlantic, Sky Originals,  Sky Sports News, 300 channels, 500 Sky box sets, 40 catch-up services and access to content on the Sky Go app.

You can bump it up to the over 40 HD with the £8-a-month HD bolt on. Or splash out on the Ultra HD + HD bolt-on, which includes selected sport and Sky Originals in 4K, plus Netflix Premium, for £12 a month.The latter seems like something of a no-brainer.

Finally, you can also add on Sky Multiscreen for an extra £15 per month (£41 total, without the HD + UHD bolt-on) and enjoy your Sky content on a second TV thanks to the additional Sky Q mini box.

With any of these Sky Q options, you can add on TV channels in bundles like Sky Sports, Sky Box Sets, Sky Entertainment, etc.

That's the basics covered. So what do the various Sky packages offer?

Disney+ on Sky |£7.99 per month, 31-day contract (opens in new tab)
Exclusive films, TV and documentaries from Marvel, Pixar, Disney, Star Wars, National Geographic and Star too. Much of the Disney+ content is available on Sky in 4K HDR and the one-month rolling contract means that you can step out once you've watched all you need.

Sky Cinema and Sky Sport in 4K where available plus the over 40 HD channels too is what you get with this very worthwhile add-on. It also offers access to the 4K programming on Netflix with Netflix Premium.
