Comcast’s love affair with Netflix expands overseas. The cable giant’s Sky satellite TV subsidiary in the United Kingdom has renewed a distribution agreement with Netflix first inked in 2018.
Under terms of the new deal, Sky subscribers will be able to access Netflix on Sky Q, including Netflix originals “The Witcher,” The Irishman and “Sex Education.”
“This is a great start to what is set to be another strong year for Sky,” CEO Stephen van Rooyen with Sky U.K. and Ireland, said in a statement. “Our customers love Netflix content and our partnership continues to go from strength to strength, we plan to launch new channels and genres, start building our new studio, Sky Studios Elstree, and we’ll have great new and returning Sky originals too.”
