Think we deserve a sky movies refund, with the films they have been putting on now, not their fault I appreciate

Never heard of any of them, and I agree about a refund!

We bailed out of the cinema package last year before Covid, such was the poor quality of movies on offer even then. Better spent on the cheaper Netflix subscription we added.

I've not seen Tenet, so that's one for the diary, and "Say you Prayers" is set locally, so will watch for the interest. Not sure I'd call Ilkley rural though :)

On the film side we are starting to see the effects of the studios' shifting their slates and this month is very much evident of that despite having one of the only real blockbusters of 2020 on there. I suspect Sky knew this was inevitable hence them offering incentives like the Sky Store discounts but the dearth of theatrical product is really telling now - unlike Amazon and Netflix who can more or less just hide their rubbish amongst a sea of other rubbish it's harder to get away with that on a movie-focused proposition. Probably worse when the likes of Paramount and Sony are offloading titles like Without Remorse, Coming 2 America and Vivo to streamers meaning they miss out on some studio product down the road (or even the opportunity to acquire them for their territories).

To give them their props they are trying to keep it viable - they have new pay 1 deals with Studiocanal and E-One (the latter of which appears to have triggered VOD releases of MIA titles like Captive State & Where'd You Go Bernadette), picked up what seems like a Pay 2 deal with Lionsgate and I think the pivot to their own acquisitions is a noble effort despite the varying quality and probably the best thing (and only thing) they could do to keep the movie service viable.
