Newest Review: ... would offer you a discount if you take both, but instead give you bonus channels of Sky Movies Premier, Sky Movies Showcase and the Disney channel - which I have yet to find! Sky Movies Premier offers 5 new movie blockbusters each week which means you do get a steady turnover of new films way before they hit terrestrial TV. Sky Movies Showcase dedicates itself to Movie Specials, Boxsets and ... more

We have had Sky installed for over a year now, and just before Christmas sky offered 2 months of the complete movies pack for £5 per month. At a usual price of £16 per month we thought we would try it as I absolutely love watching films. Since the trial period we have upgraded to the movie pack full time and still love the channels. Sky movies offers 3 types of movie package, Sky Movies 1, Sky Movies 2 or the Sky Movies complete pack. So here's what you get for your money:- Sky Movies 1 This is £8 per month and includes 5 film channels:- Comedy Family Classics Romance and Drama Modern Greats Sky Movies ... Read the complete review

As the sky movie package is included amongst the rest of my sky subscription it's hard for me to say exactly how much it costs per month at the moment but I definitely feel it offers value for money and when I first subscribed it was no different to visiting the cinema or renting a film once a week. Of course, the difference between taking a sky movie subscription and regularly renting a film or visiting the cinema (with exception of the large screen, loud speakers and ever increasing cost at a cinema) is that you are always restricted to watching what is available on their broadcast schedule without the option of not paying that day if there isn't anything ...

Sky movies is an add on package which you can buy and pay for monthly when you subscribe to the satellite T.V provider Sky. The full package contains the premiere channel which shows the latest offerings from Sky, there is also a plus 1 hour version which means you get double the chance to watch the movies and can be very handy if you have just missed the start of a movie. New movies are shown every Friday and are repeated for that whole week which gives you plenty of chance to see the new films. Most of the movies that are on this channel have already been released onto dvd so if you are a movie buff then you will probably have seen most of the movies ... Read the complete review

I used to love Sky Movies, but alas, that was before both the proliferation of streaming websites and downloads, and of course, the inception of the far more engaging Film4. Although Sky Movies offers up a wealth of quantity, it doesn't offer a too much quality to the more discerning filmgoer, even if I can see what the appeal is to more casual tastes. A few years ago Sky decided to change their format from the numerically assigned "Sky Movies" channels to sorting their channels by genre, such as Movies Premiere (where all the new films reside), Comedy, Family (is there really much of a difference between Comedy and Family!?), Action & Thriller, ...

Once upon a time (before April 2007, to be precise), the Sky Movies package was great. The channels were not split up according to genre and the same movies were not shown ad nauseam; unique films ran non-stop so on any one channel you could watch 12-15 different movies in a day. Then the powers that be had a brainwave and revamped the package - the result is a mediocre product that is definitely not worth the money and that offers a very narrow range of movies that makes the local Vue multiplex edgy and adventurous by comparison. The backbone of the package (ignoring the HD frills) is made up of Movies Premiere and Movies Premiere +1 (which is ... Read the complete review
