Unterföhring - July 1. Sky has today begun a new era of flexibility, choice and value for customers in Germany, as it completely refreshes and updates its approach to pricing and packaging.
The news follows last week’s launch of Sky’s major new content plan to shake-up TV in Germany. Sky will deliver the content plan through a combination of partnerships and development of its entertainment, movies and sports offering.
For the first time, Sky customers will now be able to choose between re-committing for another yearly subscription to lock in the best possible price, or they can enjoy maximum flexibility and move on to a monthly subscription, for a small surcharge. This also applies to existing customers, who can enjoy full flexibility after they have completed their existing contract and a new 12 month contract on the new package.
From now on, customers will get Sky Q with Sky Go, brilliant HD and the full entertainment package, with the latest Sky Originals and best international shows from HBO, Showtime, Fox and TNT included from the very beginning at no extra charge - and all in brilliant HD picture quality.
In future, new and existing customers will be able to choose from a range of great packages and customers will not need to cancel to get the best available price:
Sky Q and Entertainment – always included: Exclusive shows from Sky and HBO, complete seasons and documentaries on demand at any time, all free-TV and Sky channels, apps and media libraries, Sky Go and HD.
