Time passes and streaming services for movies and series appear more frequently. The times when we only had Netflix (although that was only a little over two years ago) have already passed into history. Later, the legendary HBO made an appearance and, with it, prestigious series such as 'The Wire', 'The Sopranos', 'Two meters underground' and 'Game of Thrones'. Later it would be done by Amazon Prime Video, an exclusive series service, associated with Amazon Prime. And now it appears, almost by surprise, Sky.
Sky is a British telecommunications company and the UK's largest pay TV company. This Sky Channel service differs from others such as Netflix , mainly because in addition to on-demand content, TV channels are offered in the same package. For 10 euros, we can enjoy channels such as Fox, Historia, SyFy, TCM, Comedy Central, etc. As with HBO or Netflix, hiring Sky has no commitment to stay and you can have the first month free.
But we go in parts. What can I do if I want to sign up for Sky Channel?

Cinema in Sky Spain
Sky Channel offers a wide variety of movies for all tastes . Titles such as 'No country for old men' 'Juno', 'Star Trek' or 'Mamma Mía' can be enjoyed à la carte. The best thing is that you go through their page and take a look at the catalog of 288 titles, although we have to tell you that cinema, precisely, is not the strength of Sky Spain.
On what devices can I watch Sky España?
You can connect your computer through HDMI to the television to be able to see live channels and series and movies on demand. In addition, Sky itself offers a terminal called Sky TV Box for 25 euros that is connected to the TV through HDMI and with which we can see all the content on our television.

- We can also see Sky on mobile thanks to its application for Android and iOS.
- On the PC we can see all the content, accessing its official page on both Windows and Mac OS .
- It does not have support for Chromecast or Airplay.
Conclusions of the service. Worth?
If we already have Netflix, for example, perhaps your plot of series, films and documentaries is already satisfied. Sky is a good service for someone who longs for old television , to be able to watch channels by zapping and to get hooked on easily digestible series. It is a bit of a delay that it does not have compatibility with Chromecast, but it is understood, since they market their own device to watch Sky on television.
If you like to zap, have an appealing variety of series and programs for all audiences and, very importantly, children's channels for the little ones, you will be able to take advantage of the service that Sky offers you. They are channels that are available on platforms like Movistar but associated with a fiber and mobile rate.
Do not lose anything in trying the first 30 days . If it spreads, leave the subscription as it is and enjoy the content. You can always cancel your subscription and do not receive any more charges.
