From May 8th, Sky reloads up some of its most popular box sets as part of its ReWatch campaign, allowing customers a chance to reconnect with some of their favourite shows.
Murmurings of lockdown conditions possibly easing asde, cinemas, restaurants, pubs and clubs are likely to remain closed for several months yet to come so the TV is going to remain right near the top of people’s options for an entertaining way to pass the time.
Sky TV is therefore launching ‘ReWatch’ as a way to help ease boredom and offer some escapism while the country continues its coronavirus counter measures. ReWatch will have over 100 boxsets and 2000 hours of content available and cover a wide variety of content styles so customers can choose to experience the intense drama of Chernobyl or the light touch comedy of Parks & Recreation.
Friday the 8th of May sees the start of every Game of Thrones episode ever – just in time for the bank holiday weekend which gives the most hardy and dedicated of bingers just about enough time to make it through all 73 episodes, if they forget about food and sleep.
Including a mixture of old and new from long departed series such as the groundbreaking The Wire and The Sopranos all the way to recently screened shows like Breeders and even Code 404 which launched a few weeks ago and has released all episodes as a boxset, ReWatch gives viewers a chance to get right up to date as well as catch up with classics.
More note-worthy box sets will become available throughout May and June and the list of available shows will also include Sky Originals such as Riviera, Intelligence and Brassic, alongside classic US and UK series. There will also be exclusive and on-demand content from Sky History, Sky Nature and Sky Documentaries once these channels launch later this month.
ReWatch box sets are available on Sky+, Sky Q and Sky Go, all Sky customers with a basic TV subscription will be able to access the content on demand without making a single change to their subscription.
Please note: Unfortunately, subscribers to the all-in-one Sky Essentials package which includes broadband, landline phone calls and Sky+ for £26 per month are not eligible for the ReWatch initiative.
