Firstly, Spotify (already available as a Sky Q app) will join Netflix in being offered up as part of an integrated billing system on your Sky bill each month.

Sky Q customers who already have Netflix can move their subscription across to Sky, or sign into Sky Q's Netflix app.

With the integration, recommendations for Sky and Netflix shows will be highlighted on Sky Q's homepage and customers will be able to pay for the combined service via their monthly Sky bill rather than paying for Sky and Netflix separately.

For a long time it seemed that Netflix and Sky would be mortal enemies, forever battling for the hearts and minds of TV viewers across the UK.

Getting the Ultimate On Demand package saves you £2.99 per month. The launch is finally just around the corner though - Sky Q customers will soon be able to subscribe to an "Ultimate On Demand" service, which features Sky's existing catch-up and box set services alongside Netflix, in one seamless package. As with Netflix apps on devices and the website, shows will be streaming only on Sky's integration.

In terms of price, Netflix on Sky Q is available through a new content package, Ultimate on Demand.

However, the idea that you can streamline your content collection, which increasingly is being split across a wide-number of services, each with their own separate ecosystem and payment methods, into one buttery smooth, all-inclusive experience that is incredibly intuitive and simple to use, is simply not offered anywhere else and definitely turned T3's head.
