We’re within touching distance of another bank holiday weekend and if your plans involve a lot of binge-watching then do I have good news for you – because Sky TV is offering its customers free access to a bunch of box sets.
Starting from tomorrow, Sky TV customers will be able to watch some spot-on box sets, including The Sopranos, The Wire and Westworld, for no extra cost.

Better still, you’ll have a bit of time before the offer expires, as it kicks off tomorrow and runs until 9 June. Good, eh?
Its open to anyone with a current Sky TV package but needs to be activated by the bill payer. To get access you’ll need to pop on to the ‘on demand’ section of Sky Q homepage or onto the Sky Box Sets section on Sky+.
Other box sets on offer include: Big Little Lies, Billions, Deadwood, Dexter, Twin Peaks, 30 Rock, Elementary, The Blacklist, The Strain, Nashville, Penny Dreadful and Save Me. So you’ll definitely find something to interest you.
With tough competition from Netflix and other online streaming services, Sky has stepped up to the plate recently.
Not only is it home to Game of Thrones, it’s also currently got the highest rated TV show of all time, according to IMDb, with its latest hit Chernobyl.
And if that’s not enough for you, Sky also had its most successful night at the BAFTAs ever this month.
It picked up gongs for best comedy entertainment programme, with A League of Their Own, best scripted comedy with Sally4Ever and best international with Succession.
Meanwhile, Sky Original series Patrick Melrose – which you can catch on the box set offer – won best mini-series and best leading actor with Benedict Cumberbatch.

Sky UK and Ireland’s director of programmes Zai Bennett, said: “With five BAFTA awards it’s been a record year for Sky. Our success is testament to those in the creative industries whose storytelling we have helped nurture and support.
“I’d like to thank the British Academy for recognising excellence in our Sky originals and most importantly our viewers, whose appetite for series like Patrick Melrose, Sally4Ever and A League of Their Own continues to go from strength to strength.”
