The new Sky Q platform is chock with third-party services, but what about Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video?

Sky made no mention of the rival video services at the Sky Q launch event, but the company isn’t ruling out a partnership.

We asked Sky executive Kathryn Lacey whether a Netflix or Amazon video app would be available on Sky Q, she said she was ‘open’ to working with third-party content providers.

“What we’ve got with Sky Q is a platform from which we can continue to grow the content and choice that’s available to our customers, and that’s really at the heart of this for us,” Lacey told TrustedReviews.

She continued: “So we are open to working with any partners we think are able to help us achieve that vision in the future.”

However, Lacey said that she “can’t comment on any individuals at the moment”.
