Sky has agreed a new multi-year deal with Netflix to keep the streaming giant's programming on its pay-TV network.

The companies have already worked together for two years, with Sky carrying the Netflix app as well as original shows, like Sex Education, among its on-demand titles.

The new deal will ensure that customers of Sky's premium TV service, Sky Q, will also be able to take Netflix’s basic plan.

Stephen van Rooyen, CEO of Sky UK and Ireland, said: “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.”

Sky has also agreed new content partnerships recently with the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5 and Warner Media.
