SKY MOBILE customers will now enjoy unlimited streaming on Sky services – without it draining their data allowance.
It means you’ll be able to watch movies and TV shows on the go, and not have to panic that you’re about to go over your monthly data cap.

The offer is called Sky Watch, and is available to all Sky Mobile customers.
However, you get different levels of access depending on whether you’re a Sky TV subscriber too.
Sky TV subscribers will be able to watch apps like Sky Go, Sky Kids, Sky Sports and Sky Cinema without draining any data.
However, if you don’t pay for Sky TV, you’ll only be able to get unlimited data usage on free Sky apps – like Sky News.

Still, it’s a good perk: you’ll be able to watch unlimited Sky News without using up any data.
And the offer is available on any Sky Mobile package, no matter how low the price.
“We launched Sky Mobile to connect our customers to more of what they love,” said Sophia Ahmad, Director of Sky Mobile.
“Streaming films and TV shows on-the-go is now one of the most popular ways to pass time while travelling or commuting.
“Our new Watch offer makes it easier for our customers to stay up to date with the unmissable must-watch television.”
Sophia told The Sun that there were “no plans to change it from Sky apps” and add rival services like Netflix to Watch.
And she added that the data allowance is truly unlimited, but said “you need to have a minimum of 15MB of data allowance left for it to work”.
