Sky customers are about to be treated to three new movie channels with the launch of Sky Cinema Christmas, Sky Cinema Classics and Sky Cinema Musicals.

The new service is going live ahead of the festive season with Sky boasting it will be airing some of the biggest blockbusters of 2017 in the coming weeks.

Sky Cinema Christmas, available on channel 303 from 8 November to 31 December, will offer over 1200 hours of the most loved festive films, including family favourites The Polar Express, The Grinch and Home Alone 2, as well as new and old Christmas picks Love Actually and It’s a Wonderful Life.

Sky Cinema Classics, available between 18 and 26 December, will bring viewers some of cinema’s most iconic films, including The Italian Job and The Great Escape, Oscar-winners The Godfather and The Apartment and family classics Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The King and I.

Offering viewers even more choice, Sky Cinema Musicals will also run from 27 December until 7 January, rounding off the festive season and the year in song.

Highlights will include new and old musical greats with Grease, Frozen and Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s award-winning The Phantom of the Opera.

Sky has also confirmed films including The Lego Batman Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, Boss Baby, Kong: Skull Island, John Wick Chapter 2 and Oscar-nominated Hidden Figures will be shown over the festive period.

Speaking about the launch, Sky Cinema Group Director, Ian Lewis, said: “Millions share in the tradition of watching movies at Christmas and this year Sky Cinema has one of its strongest ever line-ups for the festive season.

“With a new premiere every day, including the best family and action blockbusters of 2017, and three dedicated channels Sky Cinema Christmas, Sky Cinema Classics and Sky Cinema Musicals, there is something for everyone to enjoy.”

The news of the new channels come as prices for Sky continue to drop.

Sky recently revealed a deal which saw the price of the Box Sets bundle drop from £38 per month to £25 per month.

Over an 18-month contract this saved £234 and it even included access to the latest Sky Q set-top box.

That offer has now ended but some new deals have just gome live ahead of Black Friday.

Sky is currently offering £2 off its original bundle, £7 off the Variety bundle and £7 off its Box Sets bundle.

There’s also a dal which cuts the cost of Sky TV and broadband by over £10 per month saving customers over £140.

Finally, Sky broadband has been reduced to £20 per month plus there’s a £50 Prepaid MasterCard when you join without Sky TV.
