Sky has built on its existing movie rental options, with Sky Store Buy & Keep services to see DVDs sent to users’ homes.
For those wanting to back up their downloaded flicks with a physical copy, Sky’s new Buy & Keep services will see movies brought through the TV service’s EPG downloaded instantly, with a physical DVD landing on your doorstep to coincide with the film’s DVD release.
“Buying movies straight from your sofa becomes even easier with Sky Store from today,” Nicola Bamford, Director of the Sky Store said.
She added: “Our customers love to watch their favourite movies again and again, and with ‘Buy & Keep’ they get the benefit of being able to watch in minutes with the HD digital download, as well as receiving the original DVD in the post.”
Launching today for existing Sky HD customers, the Sky Store Buy & Keep service currently has “hundreds of titles” on board with prices ranging from £7.99 to £13.99.
Early titles available as part of the Buy & Keep scheme include The Hobbit: The Dseolation of Smaug, Turbo, Life of Pi and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
