Sky and Netflix have agreed a deal that will see the full Netflix service being incorporated into the Sky subscription pack.
The partnership will see the Netflix app integrated into Sky Q for customers in the UK and Ireland “in the coming year”, while Sky Q customers in Germany, Austria and Italy will see the service launch “thereafter.”
