What's in it for Sky TV customers to join Sky Mobile?

Table of comparison against other networks

Plenty of reasons for anyone to joinSee full comparison

If you've got Sky TV or Sky broadband at home, you don't get a discount for joining Sky Mobile. But they're definitely still worth considering for a couple of good reasons:

Firstly, their pricing is already extremely competitive on phone contracts and SIM only. It's not like Sky bump up the prices for non-customers to make it look like you're getting a better deal (like BT do with their mobile deals).

Secondly, you will get some added extra benefits with your mobile deal that someone without Sky TV or broadband wouldn't get. Take a look at the exclusive benefits section below to learn more.

On this page, we take you through the latest Sky Mobile offers you can enjoy as a Sky TV or broadband customer and explain the exclusive benefits you get.

If you're in the market for the new iPhone 12 on Sky Mobile, now is definitely the time to move. They've cut the cost of adding the massive 30GB plan by 50%, saving £15 a month or £540 over a 36-month contract.

Here's what that means for the 64GB iPhone 12:

The offer also applies to all the other recently-launched iPhone 12 models. So that's the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max. It's a limited time offer, you've got until 30th November to benefit.

It's not just the iPhone 12 you can get the 50% off Sky's 30GB plan offer on, it actually applies to any of their models from Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Sony and all these too. But there are more deals here and there too:

Like a £168 saving on the Samsung Galaxy FE 5G on a 2GB plan, which is made up of a £2 monthly saving on the device cost and a further £4 off the cost of the 2GB plan over 36 months.

The same offer applies to the Samsung Galaxy A71

Or there's a modest £2 a month saving on the iPhone SE.

SIM only deals: get 8GB for £8 a month

Order by 30th November and you can get this excellent mid-range data plan for just £8 a month. It's the cheapest on any provider using the O2 network and includes all Sky's normal benefits:

We also think their 2GB deal here is really good value at just £6 a month, especially given it comes with unlimited Sky TV streaming data:

Here are all the plans currently available on Sky:

If you've got Sky TV at home and have a 5G-ready phone, you can add a 5G bolt-on to this plan for free (normally costs £5 a month) when you join Sky's loyalty programme VIP.

Sky Mobile existing TV customer benefits

1) Stream your Sky TV on your mobile without using data

Unlimited streaming for Sky TV customersHow it works

at sky.com
(opens in new window)

We long complained that Sky didn't have any decent benefits that involve their TV content for their mobile customers, and thankfully they responded with their new Sky Mobile Watch scheme.

It's essentially unlimited data for streaming Sky TV on your mobile. When you're watching any of Sky's apps out and about over a 4G data signal, the data used won't come out of your monthly allowance.

The list of 12 apps for unlimited streaming includes Sky Go, Sky Cinema, Sky Q and more. So whatever package you've got, you can get the most out of them on your phone too, without racking up data bills.

You get Sky Mobile Watch on phone contracts and SIM only, no matter which plan you take. You just need to have some regular data left for unlimited streaming to work. Data to play ads does come out of your allowance.

2) Add 5G data speeds to your account for no extra cost

As a Sky TV customer, you're entitled to join their VIP loyalty programme, which rewards you for remaining a Sky customer with exclusive experiences, services and offers.

If you do that, you can then add 5G data to your Sky Mobile account for free (normally it'd cost £5 a month). You'll need a 5G-ready phone to benefit though. And to be in a 5G area.

It works whether you already have Sky Mobile on your account, or whether you're thinking about joining them for mobile (SIM only or phone contract).

If you're an early adopter of new technologies, it's a decent benefit.

3) Your Sky Mobile bill is separate from your TV or broadband

Separate Sky TV and Mobile bills

Your Sky TV and Sky Mobile are billed separately

To help you manage your usage properly, Sky have kept the bill for your Sky Mobile separate from any other TV or broadband service you might have with them.

You'll still log in with your same Sky ID into My Sky to manage your Mobile account.

But otherwise, you'll set up a separate direct debit to pay for your Mobile bill.

For us, this is more useful than combined billing, as your monthly mobile bill is much more likely to change up and down with extra usage than your home services.

4) You also get all the other benefits that everyone gets on Sky Mobile

Enjoy other benefits like keeping unused data

It's worth noting that the benefits above are just the extra ones you get for being a Sky TV customer.

There's also some other great stuff on Sky Mobile to look forward to:

Like saving up any data that you don't use for up to 3 years, which you can access at any point whenever you're short.

Or the ability to change the minutes, texts and data included in your plan every month, even on a 12-month contract.

Just like with their SIMs, we'd recommend comparing Sky's prices on phone contracts with the competition.

It could well be that other networks can beat Sky's pricing, even with your inclusive discount for being a Sky TV customers.

Also, look carefully at Sky's deals because they are often of 30-month contracts. So even though the monthly rate can be lower, you could end up paying more over the whole contract.
