Sky Store now offers Buy & Keep movies for all

Sky has expanded its Buy & Keep service, bringing the download and delivery movie purchase platform to non-Sky subscribers to the first time.

Having been introduced last year to the company’s TV subscribers, Sky’s Buy & Keep platform, which allows you to download a digital copy of a film while a physical DVD is shipped to your door, is now being opened to the masses.

From today, April 15, non-Sky customers can make use of the service through the website and the iOS compatible Sky Store Player App.

What’s more, as well as heading to general consumers, the service is expanding to incorporate a host of new mobile devices and additional, internet-connected set-top boxes.

Nicola Bamford, Director of the Sky Store stated: “People want the simplest and most convenient way to buy and watch the movies they love, which is why it’s great news that from today Buy & Keep will be available to everyone and across multiple devices.”

Headline movies currently available through Sky’s Buy & Keep service include The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Paddington and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

These recent releases will set you back £13.99 a pop, while catalogue movies – such as Avatar, Back to the Future and Wizard of Oz – are priced at a more affordable £7.99 each.

Making it even easier to enjoy movie content when and where you want, a ‘follow me’ function, will allow Sky Store customers to pause a film on one device before resuming play on another.

Users can register up to four devices at any one time, with movies capable of being streamed across two devices simultaneously.
