Cheapest way to watch Sky Atlantic
Find out how you can watch some of the best shows on TV without breaking the bank.
Sky Atlantic is a treasure trove for great TV. From Game of Thrones to The Affair, it’s aired some of the most popular and critically acclaimed shows around.
Yet this top quality channel doesn’t come for free. So we’ve looked at the different places you can get Sky Atlantic, and explain how you can get it without paying over the odds.
How do you get Sky Atlantic?
Sky has been incredibly protective of its darling channel. So you can currently only watch it with a Sky TV subscription or through NOW, which is actually owned by Sky.
What’s the cheapest way to get Sky Atlantic?
Even if you get Sky Entertainment, Sky’s most basic package, you’ll get Sky Atlantic, Sky 1, Comedy Central and Sky Living.
There’s no need to blow loads of money on Sky Cinema and Sky Sports if you’re just interested in Sky’s Atlantic offerings.
There’s not a single “cheapest way” to get the channel though. Ultimately you’ll need to think about your current TV and broadband provider before launching in.
Buying Sky Entertainment with broadband
If you’re on the hunt for a new broadband provider then it’s worth getting Sky TV as part of a combo deal.
By buying a Sky TV and broadband bundle you typically make pretty decent savings. And you only need the most basic Sky TV package to watch its Atlantic channel.
At any rate, it’s worth going to the Sky website to see if any prices are what you might call reasonable.
Buying Sky Entertainment through NOW
NOW is a cheap and flexible way of getting Sky Atlantic. And by signing up to an Entertainment Pass you can watch its American themed channel either live or on-demand.
So whether you want to watch Catherine the Great on the night it airs, or you want to re-watch The Walking Dead, NOW has you covered.
And unlike with Sky TV, you’re not tied down to a long-term contract either. You buy a month-long Entertainment Pass, and if you want to cancel, you simply tell NOW not to auto-renew.
You’ll need to make sure your device is compatible with NOW. So check that you’ll be able to get the app on your laptop, phone, tablet, games console or Smart TV.
Can you get NOW through a different provider?
You can’t get Sky Atlantic through BT, TalkTalk or Virgin. While you might be able to download the NOW app to your Youview box, you can only get a Sky Cinema Pass currently.
However, if you get the NOW app on your laptop, you should be able to connect it to your TV via an HDMI cable or Google Chromecast.
Although, you might struggle to link your two devices if your laptop is a bit ancient.
