What’s Sky Atlantic?
Since its launch in 2011, Sky Atlantic has quickly become Sky TV’s premier television station. The station shows exclusive content to UK audiences, largely from the US, with its biggest hits including Game of Thrones, Dexter, House, Deadwood and Madmen.
And the hits just keep coming. Recent additions to the schedule have included Westworld, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and The Young Pope. Shows are available in both standard and high definition.
How to watch Sky Atlantic
The easiest way to get your regular fix is by signing up for a Sky TV deal. There are lots of Sky Atlantic packages, as all of its deals include the channel as standard (even the cheapest ones). As well as the standard channel in glorious HD you’ll also get Sky Atlantic +1 (if you miss the start of a show, just start watching it an hour later) – as well as access to all your favourite shows on catch-up.
If you sign up for a television deal with Sky you also get the added bonus of access to Sky Atlantic on the go. With the Sky Go app you can stream your favourite shows via your laptop or PC, as well as watching many programmes when you’re away from home via your smartphone or tablet (the app is available to download on Apple and Android devices).
Alternatively you could opt for NOW TV. This way you can get Sky Atlantic deals on a monthly basis without having to sign on for a lengthy contract. It isn’t a cheap way of watching Game of Thrones but it is super flexible – as well as being available on everything from games consoles, handheld devices and PCs right through to TV devices such as Chromecast, YouView and Apple TV.
Unfortunately, there are no Sky Atlantic packages available on Virgin Media, BT TV or TalkTalk TV.

At Broadband Genie we make comparison a piece of cake – and switching providers has never been easier.

You’ll usually find yourself rewarded with better deals if you get an all-in-one deal with the same provider: so if you’re getting a Sky TV deal, why not check out how much more you could save per month if you switched to Sky Broadband at the same time? It’s super convenient to have just the one bill for all your entertainment services, as well as a single port of call if anything goes wrong.
