Cinema Box Office has closed.

What's happened?

As of 4th January 2017 Sky UK has permanently closed down all of the remaining Sky Cinema Box Office channels.

These channels were located on channel numbers 700-715, 743, 744 & 752 of the Sky TV Guide and were used to deliver Pay Per View movie rentals via satellite to Sky customers.

The Sky Sports Box Office channels are unaffected by this change and will continue to remain available for Pay Per View sporting events.

Will I still be able to rent movies via Sky?

The answer to this depends on the model of Sky box you currently have and if your box is connected to the Internet.

Sky customers with either a Sky+HD box or a Sky Q box will still be able to rent over 1,000 movies OnDemand via Sky store, providing their box is connected to the Internet.

Customers with older Sky boxes will need to upgrade to a Sky+HD or Sky Q box in order to continue renting movies via Sky.
