You can now ‘Buy & Keep’ box sets from the Sky Store

Sky has added a major new feature to the TV and movie box sets in its Sky Store: the ability to purchase them for keepsies.

At the moment, you can only rent box sets through the Store, while individual movies are available to either rent or buy for good. However, that's now changed, with TV series finally available for purchase too.

When you buy a box set through the Sky Store, a digital copy will be available straight away on your TV or other devices - though you'll need enough storage space on your gadget to download it - and the DVD will be posted to you as well.

Currently, popular series like House of Cards, Breaking Bad, American Horror Story, Downton Abbey, and Modern Family are available to buy and rent. Its selection of movie box sets includes franchises like Fast and Furious.

Sky promises that even more will be added every week, with a lot of TV shows arriving on the service the day after the last episode broadcasts on linear telly.

Kathryn Lacey, director of Sky Store, said: "Sky Store Buy & Keep continues to be a huge hit and as the UK's regular number 1 digital retailer for new movie releases it is a natural next step for us to provide customers with the opportunity to own their favourite Box Sets. Buy & Keep box sets is the first of many exciting initiatives we have planned for Sky Store."

Prices start from £13.99 for movie box sets, and £22.99 for TV box sets. To access the Sky Store, log in with your Sky ID, sign up to get one, or go through the app on your Sky TV set-top box.
