Sky's 'Buy & Keep' store now sells movie and TV box sets

It's taken a while, but Sky has finally come through on its promise to add TV shows to its "Buy & Keep" service. Just like its film offering, anyone in the UK can pay a single price to get both a physical and digital version of a TV box set. The former is a DVD in the post, while the latter is served through the "digital Box Sets store" available on Sky+HD and Sky Q set-top boxes, as well as the Sky Store mobile app. If you're not with Sky, you can grab the digital versions through a Now TV, Roku or YouView box instead.

Movie box sets -- think the Toy Story trilogy, the Fast & Furious collection and Pitch Perfect one and two -- are also being added to the mix. Prices start at £13.99 for a film compilation and £22.99 for a TV box set. That's a little on the expensive side, although it's worth stressing that you're buying both a permanent copy and one stored in the cloud. If you were to buy two versions separately -- a physical copy in HMV and a digital one through iTunes, for instance -- you would probably pay the same, if not more.
