If you have Sky TV at home, you get exclusive extra benefits and discounts when you take Sky Mobile. We look at existing customer savings and perks. SIM Sherpa is your trusty guide. Last updated: 24th December 2019

Current Sky Mobile offers

SIM only deals: two decent offers in Sky's January Sale

Sky Mobile January SIM only deal

3GB for an impressive £6 a monthSee full offer

(opens in new window)

Sky currently have the UK's cheapest 3GB SIM only plan, with their 50% off offer below, which still comes with free streaming data, for just £6 a month.

Or for more data, Sky's triple data below is decent value, although it can be beaten on price by other providers:

Both plans are on offer until January 30th 2020.

If you've not got Sky TV at home, you'll continue to get free unlimited minutes and texts with all their SIM only plans (this used to add £10 to the cost for you but is free to Sky TV customers).

Phone deals: save £216 on each phone's 3GB plan

Sky have reduced the same 3GB plan as SIM only on all their phone contracts by £6 a month too. On 24-month deals, that means a £144 saving. On 36-month ones, it's £216.

That can be combined with getting a free Samsung Galaxy Watch Active with any of these Galaxy S10 and Note 10 phone models.

All phone contracts on Sky Mobile now come with Sky's new unlimited streaming benefit, which lets you stream anything in your home TV package on your mobile without it using your data, when you use Sky's video apps.

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

(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) You’ll always get unlimited calls and texts free (not £10)

Save £10 a month as a Sky TV customerSee all costs

(opens in new window)

Since Sky Mobile first launched, it always used to be the case that their TV customers would get the minutes and texts in their deal for free. These would cost non-Sky TV customers £10 to add.

But for most of 2019, Sky have written off this cost for people without Sky TV at home, as an ongoing special offer. It's good for them because it means more people are likely to buy.

But for Sky TV customers, it means you're basically not receiving any discount or advantage over people without it. That's unless the offer gets withdrawn.

Either way, we never really rated this as a genuine discount, because non-Sky TV customers would be very unlikely to have ever paid the inflated £10 cost anyway.

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

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.

SIM only: check Sky deals against other networks

As handy as free unlimited calls and texts are for Sky TV customers joining Sky Mobile, don’t let a good offer blind you to deals from other providers that may be better value.

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.
