GET ready to score big with Sky's Black Friday deals coming at the end of the month. They'll set you up with its hottest entertainment packages without breaking the bank.
Last year saw Sky offer its 'lowest ever price' event, seeing huge offers on a number of TV and broadband packages, and we're hoping for a repeat this year.
- Shop Sky's Black Friday deals – here
Sky is one of the most popular providers in the UK, and for good reason – its innovative tech and a huge library of channels have placed it ahead of the competition, but it doesn't come cheap.
So Black Friday is an ideal time to shop, as the media giant tends to slash prices on its TV, mobile, broadband, and more.
Sky often bundles its deals, so you can save more by subscribing to multiple packages from the same provider.
In our experience, it's well worth shopping around, especially for mobile and broadband deals, as you'll often find them cheaper everywhere.
There are already some great Sky deals out there, last week we covered Sky's cheap broadband with TV & Netflix bundles, which will get you streaming-ready.
In a warm-up act to Black Friday coming this month, Sky is offering a free trial of Sky Stream with the Sky TV & Netflix package.
To help you choose between two of Sky's most innovative pieces of kit, we've put Sky Glass vs Sky Stream up against each other.

When is Black Friday 2023?
Black Friday will take place on November 24 this year.
The annual sales event always lands the day after Thanksgiving in America, which itself is the fourth Thursday in November.
Is Sky taking part in Black Friday 2023?
We don't have official confirmation if Sky is taking part in Black Friday this year, but, based on previous years, we're assuming it's a yes.
Last year we saw some incredible deals, including Sky Stream coming with Sky TV and Netflix for £25 per month.
But that wasn't all, in an early deal for 2022 we saw new customers bagging £100 free credit with a Sky Glass TV purchase.
And if you were after a broadband deal last year, Sky's Superfast broadband fell to the lowest-ever price.
So we're expecting big things for 2023, and we'll update this page with the latest offers as and when they go live.

What to expect from Sky's Black Friday sale in 2023
In years past, Sky has had a range of offers to find on TV packages, broadband subscriptions and mobile phone contracts.
Last year, we saw up to 50% off all of its 60GB data plans (when purchased with a handset), as well as money off Sky Glass packages.
While we don't know the details, we'd expect to see discounts on all of the above again in 2023.
Previously, Black Friday has been a good opportunity to find a saving on popular Sky TV packages, such as Sky Sports and entertainment channels.
When is Cyber Monday 2023 and is Sky taking part?
Cyber Monday always follows Black Friday weekend, so this year it falls on November 27.
Cyber Monday is usually the penultimate day of the sales for most places, with some retailers even choosing to drop prices further in an attempt to make way for newer releases.
What was in Sky's Black Friday sale last year?

Can existing Sky customers get Black Friday deals?
Existing Sky customers can take advantage of the Black Friday deals, but a fee might apply depending on the contract you decide to opt for.
You can find out more here.
Is Black Friday a good time to buy TV or broadband?
Black Friday is a great time of year to look for a new TV or broadband deal. All the different providers are likely to offer discounts, so if you've let your introductory offer slip onto a rolling contract then switching providers, or opting for a new package could save you a bundle.
It might be worth waiting until all the providers have launched their Black Friday deals before you spend your money though.
TV and internet packages can't sell out, so you might as well see what offers are available on Black Friday to get the best deal for your budget.
What channels do you get with Sky?
The exact number of channels you'll get with Sky depends on the packages you purchase.
To give you an idea, the Entertainment bundle, which is Sky's basic offering, includes roughly 100 channels, in addition to the Freeview ones, for a total of around 250.
The Sky Sports bundle offers 10 additional sports channels, while Sky Cinema adds 11 film channels. Netflix Basic is also included in all of Sky's TV packages.

How to get Sky TV
Getting a Sky TV subscription is quite easy. All you have to do is go to the official site, click on the "Get Started' button, and then build your own TV package.
At the moment, the cheapest TV deal is £26 a month, but we expect that to change around the time of Black Friday.
It may be worth stepping up your game and scouring as many packages as you can, while the sales last.
Is Sky Q worth having?
Sky Q replaced the old Sky+ box and now comes as standard in any Sky subscription, and it's certainly a great product.
If you're coming from an old Sky box or are used to this setup, Sky Q will be very familiar and gives you the ability to record three things at the same time while watching a fourth.
Its newer functions include allowing you to stream your channels to one tablet, and can even act as a Wi-Fi hotspot. And with Sky Q, you can purchase extra Mini boxes to have access to all your channels on different TVs in your home.
But it may not be for everyone, especially since the release of the new Sky Stream and Glass products which don't require satellite installation.
If you're wondering: should I commit to a traditional set-top box or switch to streaming? You can find out more in our Sky Q vs Sky Stream head-to-head.
We found Stream 'much easier to set up' as it works straight out of the box, and 'connects you to Sky's channels over the internet, via Wi-Fi or an ethernet connection.'

Does Sky Q require a dish in 2023?
Yes, in order to receive the Sky signal you will need to have a dish, as Sky TV is provided by satellite.
The good news is: if there is already a dish on your property, Sky will send an engineer out to get you connected.
Or if you want to be ahead of the curve, Sky recently launched Sky Glass – its high-end TV that doesn't require a satellite dish or box.
How much does Sky's delivery cost?
Sky Mobile delivery is free, Phones, tablets, laptops and selected mobile accessories are delivered by a courier service.
Sky Glass delivery is also free unless you opt for a premium delivery which costs £25.
Does Sky offer any other discounts?
Sky offers some great discounts for NHS staff through Health Service Discounts. Students who are members of UNiDAYS can also get 25% off a SKY TV membership. These discounts may vary so it's best to check beforehand.
