Update: Sky's special offer for customers has now passed, so if you failed to redeem your free gift, the time has now passed. Sky have informed customers using the Sky telephone numbers that though adoption rates were high, they can no longer redeem the offer. Nonetheless, they've indicated that another free gift will come for Christmas 2017. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and for Sky, that means they’re ready to give thanks for all we’ve done for them over the last 12 months. With a stream of new customers coming in from across Europe and a potential takeover on the horizon, Sky are in a good mood, and have taken the fantastic step of offering each of their Sky+ or Sky Q customers a free gift! If you’re on a Sky contract without box sets included, then you should magically find that you can now stream the whole catalogue, completely free of charge! Sky have unlocked the service for everybody for the next three months, so you can catch up on incredible programmes like Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family, True Detective, Game of Thrones and countless others. That’s fantastic for those who didn’t sign up for box sets, but what about customers who did, what’s their reward for their loyalty over the last year? Well, don’t panic, because each and every customer who already had a box sets subscription will be getting a Sky Store Buy & Keep voucher by email or post over the next few days. Buy & Keep offers both an instant rental of any movie, alongside an official DVD copy of the film to add to your collection. The voucher means that you can pick any Buy & Keep movie for free – which is certainly a nice gift for Christmas. Sky say this is just the first of a number of exciting gifts for Sky customers, so keep an eye out for that. Meanwhile, Sky have secured the rights to what will surely be one of the biggest fights of 2017 – that between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko. Taking place at a packed Wembley Stadium in London, the fight will be staged on the 29th of April 2017, and will unify the heavyweight division. Joshua has won all 18 of his professional bouts since his gold medal at London 2012, and this fight will be the third defence of his IBF title after victories over Dominic Breazeale and Eric Molina. The pair will also be fighting for the vacant WBA belt, relinquished by Tyson Fury earlier in 2016. Klitschko is out to reclaim the IBF and WBA belts he lost in his defeat to Fury in November 2015, but April’s fight will be his first since the loss in Germany. Having only lost four fights in a pro career which stretches back almost 20 years, can the old master beat the young king? Sky Sports Head of Boxing Adam Smith said: “This is the fight the boxing world has been waiting for. Can the young lion, Anthony Joshua, rise to the challenge and conquer the former and long reigning king of the heavyweights Wladimir Klitschko? It is one of the biggest fights in the most glamorous division and it is on. At Wembley Stadium! What a stage for our sport, what a build-up in store and what a night it's going to be on April 29th.” Sky are planning to launch a range of programming to support the fight, including Ringside and The Gloves are Off, in addition to the usual range of pre-fight build up from behind the scenes. Sky have yet to price the Box Office bout, but it should fall in line with other major boxing bouts in the service, priced at around £25. Sky have also declined to comment on whether this will be their first broadcast 4K boxing match, using the technology enabled by Sky’s now standard Sky Q box.
